Small talk

Well, I don't have much time to write today, but I will post this quick article from Real Simple about the "art" of making small talk. This is an area where I am consideralby lacking. I tend to be quite awkward around people I don't know, sometimes not talking enough and sometimes talking too much.

Part of my hold-up with small talk is that I am really uncomfortable asking people questions about themselves because I'm afraid they will be too personal. All in all, I have the tendancy to be slightly anti-social. I want to become more gregarious and learn how to enjoy meeting new people, because right now it's downright painful for me!
