    I went to a job interview today.

    As an genderqueer person, I can't help but wonder what or who the person interviewing me saw. I took an extra hour deliberating over what to wear, so I wouldn't confuse anyone or look too masculine or feminine. Silly because the job asks for scrubs to be worn anyway.... I...

    It was once said that a person gets

    so use to looking at their own features they can't really see the beauty a stranger would see.

    It's funny.... Most people like me,

    I don't understand why... I'm really a stand offish kinda person until I get to know somebody is trustworthy and they are worthy enough to be called my friend. I don't trust easy, people have let me down pretty much most of my life... Including close family members... I have...

    I do wonder what people think of me,

    or whether they understand something I say or do the way I meant it. But I also take this literally. Like, if I'm looking at a green chair, and you agree that it's green, there's no way to know that the color we see is really the same. It's a deep existential mystery :)

    I have a friend, or had a friend.

    He committed suicide just recently, Idk why he did it. He seemed fine when he was with us. It's pretty crazy whenever I think about it.

    I wish I could see myself through someone

    else's eyes, not just see myself in the mirror, but feel what they feel when they look at me...I know that seems odd

    “Think and wonder, wonder

    and think.” In today’s world of multimedia flooding our senses at all times, it’s important to take time to just think. Unplug a bit and ponder big thoughts. There are so many movies, TV shows, video games, and music that fill our heads with someone else’s thoughts that...

    I'm a rather solitary person.

    I prefer to speak only when necessary or spoken to. Its just the way I've grown up. I feel like I have two lives. Who I really am, and the silent doll at school. I mean, I'm not bullied and I have never been, but I am definitely not happy mostly. I think much more than I speak...

    me. I know who I am and who I want to be but sometimes I wonder what people think when they see me. They say first impressions are everything, right?

    I honestly wonder all the time what people

    really see in me or how I look to others. Am I pretty? Nerdy, like able? Annoying? Too serious? Too sarcastic? I feel I am perceived differently by different kinds of people, and in a way this is scary. I accept myself and feel I am me and I love myself (not in a self-centered...

    I've often wondered what it would be like to

    see the world, to see me through someone else's eyes. Can they see the scars that are hidden deep? Do they know why my body has been marked? Do they know why tears dried up many years ago? Do they know why I sometimes act inappropriately during certain situations? What do people...

    I'm a very strong and confident person,

    so I honestly don't care about anyone's negative opinions of me. I'm not perfect by any means, but I'm a good person and I do my best, and that's good enough. I love who I am, and I love who I hope to be even more. Sometimes I wonder what other people see though. I wonder what...

    What do you see? Yeah there's the brown hair

    and eyes, but what else? You can't see what's inside, that's why it's so easy for others to judge, to assume, and to turn away. But we may have more in common than you'd ever imagined. So, take a closer look at someone next time you start to judge =]

    Will the Man With No Eyes See Darkness?

    What do you see, when you look at me?

    Do you see me for who I am? Or do you see me through the tinted lenses of predetermined stereotypes? Do you see me as a unique individual, or do I seem like a cliche nobody? Who am I to you? Do I mean anything at all? Am I your friend? Or just a source of entertainment to you...

    A psychologist walked around a room

    while teaching stress management to the audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they'd be asked the 'half empty or half full' question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: 'how heavy is this glass of water?' Answers ranged from 8 to 20 oz. she...

    The Poetry of Perception

    You may find that person in life that is an exact replica to you, your alternate thumb print so to speak.  But the truth is, we are all individuals and as such our perceptions vary. I know what I see when I look at that plain wall, in the mirror, at 'him', etc.  But...

    What do you see when you look at a woman?

    Her clothes... Well dressed so you assume she has class and money? Don't be so sure- that could be her only nice outfit. Dressed very prim & proper so she must be a prude... Could be a tiger behind closed doors. Dressed in something too tight, too revealing so she must be easy...
