I Am More Observant Than I Let On

Ever get called oblivious but have the secret pleasure that you know more than they think? 13,856 People

    People tend to think I'm oblivious,

    I just pretend things aren't happening, even my parents think it sometimes. But they're all wrong, very wrong.

    He holds out his loving hands to all of us.

    Will you take his hand into eternal life or will you cast him away? Irriguardless of your beliefes he believes in us. Every last one of us have the power to change our ways we all have the power to gaze into the darkest abyss and still find his loving Guiding hands.

    Just before we fall asleep,

    I always experience this hormone release from the body. kind of like the sleep fairy has sprinkled its dust. It puts the body to asleep. As this hormone or whatever it is, spread across the body and the body slowly goes into sleep mode... more and more we are less and less...

    I tend to people watch.

    ...When I'm at the store or at the state fair. Nothin else to do when you live in a small community. I've overheard things I probably shouldn't have heard to be honest with you all.

    I seem to always catch a fleeting expression,

    a look in someone's eye... When having a conversation and we both look away but I glance back at the person I'm with and in that second I can see everything you're thinking. How you feel about me, how you're pretending that you're happy for me when you're actually jealous, how...

    It's funny now that I look back a bit on my life. The fact that I almost went insane and got locked up in a mental institution due to the simple fact that I just see things more than most people do. I look deeply, feel deeply, experience deeply. I can see all the details around...

    Masticate

    So I was eating lunch with my family, and I said, 'mom do you mind if I watch you masticate?' She nearly choked on her food because she thought I said ********** lol but I told her that the dictionary meaning of masticate means to Chew!

    There are too many creeps in this app,

    it's such a shame. But I know there are people that want to use this app for sharing experiences and find that bond with others. Please, do not message me if you are not that kind of people.

    The Observer

    I like to watch people. I like detail. You can learn so much about somebody by looking at their body language. I like to assume things about them, but keep in mind that my assumptions are completely biased. I'll watch how you talk and behave. How you treat others and yourself...

    I successfully assumed my cousin was pregnant

    before she told anyone. It was because of her change in appetite, her not drinking wine, and her feeling sick which she assumed to be just a bug, but nope. :P x

    Behind my shy, quiet,

    and I dare say a little aloof, facade, is a very observant woman. I'm busy taking in all the information around me-assessing the situation for safety, threats, who is likely to be a friend, and who is worth getting to know. Sometimes it's downright exhausting.

    The Senses

    The things I see, hear, feel tell me a lot about a person and a situation.  I love my job as a journalist.  While other reporters are running around trying to get a scoop and cover things and move on to the next "big" story, I watch and observe.  Some of my best stories have...

    Dumb blond. That's my name.

    No one expects much, which makes life than much easier. People snicker at each comment I make, not realizing I know much more. I memorized everything they haven't and get A's without studying. Yet somehow I'm the idiot. It doesn't matter though. The less they know the better off...

    most times I have a blast. There is so much to see, to feel, to know. The synchronization of patterns and tones. The art of body language. The tell tale signs that we are not aware of.

    Indeed. One of the hardest things I (may

    ever) do, is to see right through someone, yet not say anything or make a judgment and still treat them with decorum. But at some point, perhaps we need to. Otherwise it feels false or like a false relationship. Most don't want pure raw honesty unless it is flattering to them.

    Talk To The Hand

    I am glad I never used the gesture "talk to the hand" randomly as I found out its true meaning. " Talk to the hand because the ear is not listening" "Talk to the hand because the face does not understand" It is in fact quite a sarcastic gesture!
