People are strange… when you’re a stranger

People are strange when you’re a stranger. Very true my long dead friend, very true. One of the strangest things about being here is interpersonal communication or lack there of. See, i sit in a corner of the teachers office. People come and go, teachers that i have daily contact with in class come and go and often pass me by as if i were a log or random office chair. I don’t know how to take it really, some days i shrug and figure that they are busy or don’t notice me. When i am already feeling lonely those moments turn into much more.

I always try to say hello to people here and where ever i have been really. It is just a common thing. So when someone doesn’t say “Hi” to me i wonder what i have done or why they don’t want to talk to me. As i pointed out in an earlier post, your mind really can play tricks on you when you are alone and have too much time to think. I try to get through each day with minimal disruption or trouble, that is kinda how i live always. I want to be the water not the rock. Still though, can’t help but wonder sometimes… i am a stranger, no matter how kind or how much about myself i offer. I will forever be a stranger.
