People-watching, the nice word for staring absently at everyone around you, is incredibly interesting and telling. As much as I love to observe those who surround me, I also like to self-watch. I try to separate the me that is aware of my surroundings and motivations and internal thoughts from my actual actions. I pretend that I am someone else and observe what I do in given circumstances. It’s a bit bizare but rather revealing.
Major Observation #1: My reactions to happinness and stress and sadness and anger in life are all exactly the same. When my emotions go to any extremes I generally isolate myself through headphones or location and scribble madly on a notebook or type wildly into this blog.
Major Observation #2: Even though I write just as much when I am experiencing negative emotions as the positive ones, I rarely share the more “downer” pieces. Mostly becaue I feel that my other writings aren’t as good and the world has enough hurt without me adding to it. This being said, it isn’t too hard to figure out when I’m having a splendid day (like today). It’s a bit more tricky the other way around unless you belong to the small group of people that can read me with scary accuracy.
Minor Observation #3: I actually don’t have a minor observation. Or another major one. I just felt that if I had major observations than I should have minor ones as well. For balance’s sake.
