People Watching

One of my favorite things to do is to people watch. My friends laugh at me because I have no problem whatsoever going to coffee shops, restaurants, movies, and basically anywhere else by myself. the reason I don’t mind however is that I simply love watching people in their natural habitat. I love making up stories for different people. I like to wonder what they are doing in that moment, if I’m at the mall, is a girl nervously trying to find a cute outfit for the boy she has been wanting to ask her out for three months now, or is the man in the jewelry store finally picking out that engagement ring after a seven year relationship and her constantly hinting at marriage. I like and try to figure out who’s on a first date and who is nearing their last.  I find it amazing that we could encounter up to thousands of people in a day and not know a single thing about the majority of them. In my head I want to know more about them without actually talking to them, because to be honest, their lives are probably boring and in my head I make them interesting.

I don’t really consider it eavesdropping if people are talking loud enough for most people to hear. I have heard some of the most interesting conversations you could ever believe, some appalling, some hilarious, it all depends on where you are and what time of day it is.  I have a theory that people talk about private matters in public because they like to be a spectacle, they want other people to pay attention to them, so I do. I mean if people didn’t want attention they wouldn’t do things like public proposals, or break ups for that matter. So a warning to all of you, if you ever happen to see me in public I may listen to your conversation, and if you’re talking loudly enough for me to hear it, I’m not going to feel bad about it at all.

I’ve come to the conclusion over the years now that my hobbies are indeed odd and most people don’t enjoy them but they’re interesting to hear about, well at least I think so. Anyway I hope you were a little interested in this a little bit, sorry about the rambling it’s late and I drove home today. I guess it’s technically tomorrow now, so another post in less than 24 hours hopefully.

XOXO

Also sorry no trivia today because, silly me, I left my calendar at school because I packed super lightly this trip home, so extra on Monday.

    Not odd at all hun! In fact, I just created a blog dedicated to people watching in coffee shops :P

    It’s those that watch and listen, who learn the most :)
