    I was just at the supermarket with my dad

    when a rather butch rough looking woman drove into the car park, without thinking I uttered the words "Good god she's got the face like a back end of a bus". My dad sniggered. I added in a creepy tone "I eat small children heh heh", to which he replied "and probably a few...

    I may come across bold on the Internet,

    but I'm actually quite shy in real life. I often feel really uncomfortable around people, and I have a bad tendency think hatefully of others because they are in an animated conversation with one of their friends. Jealousy I guess. Regardless, it's something I need to work...

    I was always the tallest girl in the class.

    So all my school life, I watched people from the back seats. I'm gonna write stories after my 40s. I'll write all right.

    I am very much a people watcher

    and have been for a multitude of years. I love how they act and react in certain situations. Many times they do not surprise me with their interactions between each other. No, I am not a psychologist, psychiatrist, or counselor but just enjoy people and is a hobby of mine.

    One of the greatest things I love about college.

    Sitting almost anywhere on campus and watching everyone go by. Some laughing, some are alone, some are in groups, every once in a awhile someone will miss a step and look around and hopes nobody saw them.

    people watching in ways that would not be socially acceptable. I have long since outgrown that particular vice but I am still a people watcher. Now days I do most of it sitting on a bench at the mall just watching shoppers go to and fro.

    It's so interesting to just sit

    and watch. Mainly because people reveal a lot more than they realise without saying a word. Even the toughest people reveal their vulnerable side when they think no one is watching.
