6 Types Of Every Soft-Spoken Person You'll Relate To

As someone with a naturally quiet voice, people don't always hear me.


You know that girl from Pitch Perfect who you never really knew her name, but you laughed at her because she didn't know how to speak up and use her voice? Yeah, I'm that girl. Except I don't say the really weird things that she does.

I'm not a quiet person. I just was born with a quieter voice. With five brothers, you would think that I've grown to make my voice louder, but not always. Here are just some of the struggles that I deal with on a daily basis.

1. The Invisible Ones


Mom: *knocks on bedroom door* "Johanna!"

Me: "Yes."

Mom: "Johanna, where are you?"

Me: "I'm in the living room."

Mom: *calls dad* "Honey, I can't find Johanna. Is she still asleep?"

Me: *gets up and walks ten feet to mom* "Mom, I'm right here."

Mom: "Johanna, I've been calling your name for ages! Why didn't you answer me?"

Me: *sighs internally* "I did answer you."

Side note: This exact conversation took place five minutes ago.

2. Those Who Take Credit


Do you ever have those really great ideas or answers in class and you shout it to the teacher and no one else is talking, but yet no one hears you except for the person sitting right next to you? And then, after you've said it like four times and no one else notices, you decide to give up? Wait, but this is the best part. Then, someone else stands up and says the EXACT same thing once and immediately gains everyone's attention and love.

Yeah, me neither.

3. The Underrated Ones


These are the type of people who are secretly super funny, but no one ever hears their jokes. They're usually overlooked, but can be the funniest person in the room.

4. The Angry Ones


They have to repeat everything they say, which gets annoying fast, they also probably have a temper and may attend anger management classes in their free time. Therefore, you should probably either pretend like you do know what they said or just run away fast before they rant to you about how no one understands them.

5. The Awkward Ones


They're naturally awkward already, so not having people hear them when they speak just makes the situation ten times worse. A common conversation might include them speaking and then saying "Nevermind. It doesn't matter." while the other person tries to convince them that it DOES matter. Eventually, they will be forced to repeat whatever nonsense they said at first only for the other person to realize that it really didn't matter and was something trivial like "I ate bread today."

6. The Scary One


This is the jokester that goes around just pranking everyone by sneaking up on them all the time. They've found a way to somehow take their quiet side and use it for evil. You better sleep with one eye open around them.

Whether you can relate to all of these or just one of them, I think that every person has a quiet nature to them. Some people just know how to use it better.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.
