So motivational. (clipped to polyvore.com)
i like how this can be read vertically or horizontally. i guess that's the idea.
i know i go on about the little things, but what would life be without them? for example: i was walking down dundas, and a man was walking toward me. he appeared to veer to my right so i veered to his right (my left). at the same moment he veered to my left and i looked up at him with a growl rumbling inside of me but he was laughing because of our mix up. i laughed too. i should have laughed to begin with but i guess i was feeling a bit jaded.
it's funny, riding the subway during rush hour can be draining (oh i know i go on about this too, but it's a day to day thing for me - so i think about it a lot). it's interesting to think about. all these people with the same goal, fighting each other to get there first. i think if everyone just took a step back and realized we're all trying to get somewhere it would improve the general theme of rage and (mild) violence i see on a daily basis. i'm guilty of it sometimes too. you get pushed around enough and you start to lose your patience. just like i almost lost my patience with the guy on the sidewalk. there are two things that help me check myself before i wreck myself. 1: when i see people confront one another, i am reminded of how petty the situations i face really are. 2: when i'm victim of someone in a hurry, i am reminded that passing people agressively can be dangerous and frustrating to them. for example: a girl was trying to pass me after i finished buying my metropass. just as i was about to leave she tried to pass me but i was already going through the spinny thing so there was no room for her. as i walked toward the stairs she stepped on the back of my shoe before passing me and i turned around and said take it easy. so, i take my own advice sometimes.
