lloking back at this past semester, we have attempted to become better at reading the people wround us. So, when I took a bit of time out of my day to look around at the poeple around me, i tried to remember all the things that were happeing. At first, i thought i was being a smart ass, thinking that none of the surrounding areas needed a comma, and i didnt see any missed citations. But it was when i started actually "reading" the space around me that i started to actually laugh. Sitting in the counch area, becuse im lazy and wanted to be comfy doing this strenuous assignment, i realized that so many people try so hard to be part of the college atmoshphere, that they almost look like that they came off a printing press. I dont know if its the lack of sleep or stress, but no joke, 9 out of 10 pepole had starbucks coffee in their hand and an iPod in thier ears. everyone does the smae thing. for this being the place where you are suppossed to be the person who you are going to become, why is that everyone is the becoming the same person? thats no fun. the only person that i felt was being true to himself wsa this super tall guy that sat there playing his PSP (video games becky) and didnt care. some of the people gave him dirty looks as if he was scarring the college atmoshphere. So the guy wanted to have fun? Why does he deserve the dirty looks from every passerby? did he do something wrong and i miss it? or is it becasue that he wasnt listening to an iPod and freaking out over finals? I dont know, but it seems that our college culture has become one of conformity, not diversity. so yeah, thats it.
