People almost always have to ask me to repeat myself because I talk very quietly. I think I am speaking at an appropriate volume but I am not. I mumble. It's not as bad on the phone because it's right in front of my mouth, or if people are across the room or something because I know I need to speak up. If someone is like 6 feet away.. they say "What?? Speak up." It drives my girlfriend nuts. It's been a problem for as long as I can remember. Is it.. an introverted quiet person thing or a speech impediment or..?
Is LJ hideously slow for everyone else all the time or is it me? I have to open things in tabs and keep reading or I'd just sit there staring at the monitor all the time.
