You Make a Good First Impression
You probably are making a much better impression than you realize.
Social situations can be a bit awkward for you at times, and you tend to over think what you say and do.
If you make a social faux pas, you remember it a lot longer than anyone else does.
Just relax and do your best. There are little things you can do to improve your social image.
Express more of an interest in the people around you, and be a good listener.
The secret of fascinating people is that they find everyone else fascinating!
I HOPE I make a much better impression than I think I do. Because I THINK I’m a dork in public.
Actually. When I make a social faux pas (notice I said “when”), I usually try to pass it off as a joke. It sort of goes back to that dork thing.
And I think I’m a great listener. Though I do have a bad habit of cutting people off when they talk. Especially when I see they’re struggling to try and find the right word or phrase – I have a tendency to just jump in and complete their thought for them.
Yes. It’s as annoying as it sounds.
Welp. Guess where I am, right this very moment. I’m attending the first day of my two-day orientation at my new job.
I wonder how it’s going ………… ??
UPDATE: And the first day of orientation is OVER. I’m telling you guys, I’m going to LOVE working for this place! I’d go into more details, but I’m completely wiped out. I’ll write more in a few days – I have so much to do AND a new school website to get online! Busy, busy!
