    When I have time to actually sit

    and drink my coffee at the shop..I like to watch people coming in and out of the door. Its funny how oblivious they are of their surroundings. Some rush in, some take their time leaving while their nose is glued to their iWhatever-is-the-gadget-of-choice-that-minute. Why...

    To me, the most beautiful state a person can be

    in is when they are falling apart. The honesty and intense pain that their actions hold is breath taking. Especially if they are slowly losing their mind. Something about watching someone lose their grip on reality and going from being concerned with their state, to comforted by...

    I'm sitting on the trait.

    .commuting. Watching the people around me, most on their phones and between late twenties and 50's. One gentleman, in his late 70's, possibly early 80's also looks to be "figuring things out"....it's almost like you could read the thoughts he was having through his facial...

    I like to just sit in a park,

    or even at a stoplight, watching the cars go by, wondering what other people's lives are like, who is cheating on who, the fed up house wife, the unhappy husband, making up my own stories, makes my life seem a little better.

    I love watching random stragers interact with

    the world. I love trying to analyze who they are and what is going on in their heads.

    People watching is such a simple joy

    and yet often becomes emotional to the watcher at times. To see how people react to a public setting - some carefree and laughing, others uncomfortably shifty and some even who yell and shout despite peeking eyes and nearby ears. It makes me wonder how these people are on their...

    So basically what I have noticed at my time at

    uni is that people with similar aesthetics tend to group together. Like the attractive/confident band together and the quieter ones band together. I have also noticed that people dress up (looking super good, high heels makeup etc) for uni and I just can't help but wonder at the...

    When I used to visit London during the summer,

    I liked to roam around and visit different places and one was St Paul's.After going inside the cathedral, I would sit outside on the steps for a while and either read a book I had taken with me, or if I was hungry I would go into Starbucks close by.People watching is something...

    I like watching people because you can learn a lot about a person just by really paying attention to them.  I watch people everywhere all the time.  But then it has been drilled into me by my dad.  He always said, "Always be aware of your surroundings."  And I am.  I pay...

    The Lethal Look

    I enjoy watching people. My 11 hours flight from Australia to Dubai last weekend was educational. The flight stewardess seemed keen to serve my husband. I was left to watch. My husband was amused and couldn't wait for my reaction. LOL She smiled coquettishly to him, and the...

    I bought my appartment in Montreal for the main reason I can see everything in my neighbours's appartements. Like in Rear Window, I can watch them live their lives. It's fascinating. Almost morbidly fascinating . Haven't seen a murder yet ;-)
