    Everything is determined by perspective.

    I've never had the greatest self esteem about

    myself or confidence in how I look. Some days it's worse than others. On the lowest of days I find I can pick myself up a bit by driving to the nearest Walmart. All it takes is 5 minutes of sitting in the parking lot and looking around. By the time I'm pulling out of the...

    I love to just wonder around

    and look at people who are stresses and in a bad mood; imagining what their troubles are.

    I like to gaze up at passing aircraft,

    and think about all the people onboard... I like that I'm watching them and thinking about them, and they're completely unaware. I wonder how many of them are looking down at the lights of my house, and whether they speculate about the people below them.

    while people watching at a ***** mall it was fun

    for me to see a young man playing guitar for change under a sigh that read. " no soliciting or pan handling of any nature" he played really well!

    So watching the commuters go home I see a young

    woman with a loose fitting top and light support bra (possibly). I look around and see people looking in her direction with various amounts of discretion. I then see who else is looking at those lookers and see another woman slap her partner as she follows his gaze. Then I...

    I am not a patient person

    and since half of my friends often have trouble with being on time I was always the first one to arrive whenever we hang out. It was then I have develope this habit of watching people rushing through whatever their business is and predicting their life stories in my head.

    Alright there's a pretty attractive guy I see

    after school everyday and I'm a decent looking girl. Obviously I can't help but to stare at him and I've noticed that he looks at me too. He'll look away when we make eye contact and we stare each other down everyday. Is he staring because he noticed that I stare at him all the...

    Sunday Afternoon

    I took a Sunday stroll on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. I walked through the park, observing the young skateboarders. Across from the skateboarders, I observed the old homeless men sitting on benches, watching me as I watched them. As I crossed the street, I noticed a young...

    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...

    I am quite a social person.

    But there is always this moment when you have people around and don't know what to do. You just watch them. It's this exciting moment, you feel one with people. Watching them from afar gives you a sense of security. You feel every detail about them. I can now know how a person...

    I love to go to the local mall,

    buy a slice of pizza or some coffee, and watch all the people just wandering around. Occasionally I find someone I am interested in and casually follow them, not to stalk but to get a feel for who they are as a person. Like if a woman buys candles and lingerie, I imagine she's...

    I generally live in a very quiet area

    but at around 1 in the morning on a Saturday people always come back from the pub or something with their music playing loud and it fascinates me. I love listening to them and every week I stay up to watch them pass. Who else does something like this?
