Watching... or staring.


taking the metro on a daily basis has brought out this weird side of me that usually is kept hidden under a stone behind my learning emotion. It's called... emotional observance... and to other's they might just consider this being a stalker. oh well.

so i see these people on the public transportation and i imagine their lives outside of this 15 minutes of space we share with one another.


case 341. cute indie couple - every morning this girl waits for her boyfriend to walk onto the train. She sits in the furthest seat in the last train. And the entire way they talk to each other like they haven't seen each other in years. there is always this level of excitement... and he always just wants to touch her hand. and their perfect theme song is...


case 923. guy in green headphones - i don't have a story... it's just those damn green headphones make me more curious about what he's listening to more than anyone else... so i imagine he listens to things like pepi ginsberg. when i'm sure he's actually listening to something closer to arcade fire or decemberists.


case 675. Girl with red bag - she always looks stern and crosses the street before everyone else, but i know, she's dreaming...other than that.... this song just goes well with her...




really. i don't do this everyday... just when i get tired of reading and look up.

3 kind regards:

girl 675 sounds like me. :) i wonder what we'd think of each other if we met for the first time on the metro.

I happened to come across your blog while spotting a post between you and Jess that appeared on my FB newsfeed. Haha quite stalkerish and random but I wanted to tell you that I LOVE your blog!!! It's so fun reading your posts and they're all so creative and witty. So yes, please keep up the blogging and I am now a newly devoted fan :)
