“I don’t like talking just for the sake of talking, but I feel like I have to talk to make my new coworkers like me :( . Especially since I’m new, I’m afraid of people judging me. “How was your weekend?” “Wow, is it going to rain today?” These kind of conversations get so old and pretentious. I feel fake when I do small talk like this.”
