I’m an introvert. If I go to a party or out to a bar to hang out with people, I prefer to be sitting in a corner and not talking to anyone, kind of minding my own business. People mistake it for being rude and/or bitchy, but I genuinely feel uncomfortable around a group of people in a social setting. I’d much rather be home.

Boba Fett because I remember seeing him for the first time on the big screen in Empire Strikes Back and thinking, “Whoa, he’s a serious badass!”
