Today I had my "one on one" with my team leader, Neal. Its where you sit down and just "get to know each other" and talk about concerns you might have.
Which made me realize this about myself:
Americorps Revelation #1: I am really, really uncomfortable being the center of somebody's attention. Someone looking at me directly for more than a few seconds makes me blush; someone asking me direct questions about myself make me stammer and my hands shake; and one-on-one situations where I'm supposed to do the talking, leave me completely unable to form coherent thoughts or sentences.
So here's a few more jobs I'm crossing off the big list:
X Movie Star.
X Anything else that might get me on Oprah someday.
As an afterthought, I think this might be another reason I have such a hard time with the whole "dating" thing. I really can't stand the constant and undivided attention from another person that comes with the territory.
