I have pretty bad social anxiety.
Aku punya sindrom kepanikan sosial yang buruk.

But I decided that I was going to be more outgoing when I went to college.
Tapi aku memutuskan untuk lebih terbuka ketika masuk kuliah.

So I joined the Facebook group for incoming freshmen, and I sent a generic ‘hey’ to everyone.
Jadi aku bergabung di grup Facebook untuk mahasiswa baru, dan aku mengirimkan pesan umum ‘hai’ ke semua orang.

Almost everyone gave me a generic ‘hey’ back, but he kept responding.
Hampir semua orang membalasku dengan ‘hei’ yang umum, tapi dia terus meresponku.

Then he added me on Snapchat.
Lalu dia menambahkan aku di Snapchat.

He started sending me selfies and I responded with pictures of my living room.
Dia mulai mengirimkan foto selfinya dan aku balas dengan foto ruang tamu rumahku.

He wanted to FaceTime, but I hate seeing my own face in the corner so we just talked on the phone instead.
Dia ingin melakukan FaceTime, tapi aku benci melihat wajahku sendiri di sudut hp jadi kami bicara lewat telpon saja.

When school finally started, we went out together with a group of people.
Ketika perkuliahan dimulai, kami pergi bersama sekumpulan mahasiswa.

We didn’t make much eye contact but we did stand next to each other the entire time.
Kami tidak saling menatap tapi berdiri bersebelahan selama itu.

A month later we were in class and I was making fun of him for not using soap when he washes his hands.
Sebulan kemudian kami di dalam ruang kuliah dan aku mengejeknya karena tidak menggunakan sabun ketika mencuci tangannya.

And he said: ‘If I use soap, will you date me?’
Dan dia berkata: ‘Kalau aku pakai sabun, kamu mau pacaran denganku?’

And I said ‘yes.’
Dan aku berkata ‘ya’.

So here we are.
Dan inilah kami.
