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

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

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

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.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
