Those who know me probably wouldn’t use the word “shy” to describe me. Around my friends, I tend to babble about everything from drag queens and travel to how I think that giving your child a mullet should be a legally recognised form of child abuse. It totally should.
But hop in the time machine and go back to the start of the century, and you’ll see a dorky kid with thick glasses and a hairstyle resembling a mushroom. He doesn’t really talk to anyone except a handful of very close friends. The other kids in his class are mean to him, so he’s afraid of talking to new people.
