    I've Met You Now You're Forever In My Story.

    I want to know what made you like you are, even if I've only just met you. Sometimes I pretend I can see you when you were younger doing the things you might have done. My brain is weird like that. People watching affords me such a pleasure as wondering about the lives of every...

    People Watching

    I have always liked watching people. I could go to the mall and just spend the day watching people and have a great day doing it. I always wonder where they came from and what they do in their everyday life. Sometimes I wish that I could just sit and ask some of them!!

    Sometimes It Just Blindsides Me

    As weird as it sounds, sometimes I forget that other people are... people. I go about my day almost like a machine now. Work, home/sleep, work, maybe friends/home/sleep, work. But today, during a slow period, I talked with a guy around my age who works at CVS near me, and I...

    After All...

    I sometimes think about the people I meet,

    or almost meet. If their life is different because I didn't say hi, or smile, or introduce myself. If they would remember my face years later, just to walk up to me and I not even remember that I took a moment to think about them years later. It haunts me.
