I tend to look people in the eye and speak my mind about it. I walk to my friend and say "You're eyes are chocolate brown. It's...mixed. You have a wide variety of friends in which you have a different personality towards each. You're an all-around person" I know that because of her eyes, and because of my experience with her. They say the eyes are the gateway to the soul, and it's one of my favourite sayings, because it's true.
I tend to speak my mind about everything. I say to my long-time, reading-rival friend since elementary school (we had this rivalry on who could read the most books) and I said to him at lunch, "I respect you a lot, a whole lot, because you read and you're quiet and preserved. You don't...you're very....admirable, and I respect you for that". The reaction I get from others from saying that is, "You're so weird!" and "Kirthi, you're so weird". And you know what I say? "Weird is over-rated" I love saying it just as much as I love saying, "Normal is over-rated".
I connect with people through the eyes, and looking at him or her full on gives people the sense that I care, and that I am listening: a sense of belonging for the other person.
My generation is...."screwed up" as older people might say. The taste in music is for trashy, name-less lyrical "songs" that to me, sounds like pots and pans smashing against each other. Nameless, is what I would describe my generation as, or "brain-washed". I notice that my classmates love to agree with each other and belong. It's a stage of their life where their identity is un-clear, where they don't know what they want. Basically, being a teen is like being in a constant state of confusion. Ha, wow. I'm self-aware: I observe. And it's lovely for one to know who they are: what he or she likes, what he or she dislikes, and to say it with such conviction, that it has to be true.
Sometimes, bloggers, I really wish I could meet you in the eye. But words seems to be less than equivalent to looking you in the eye. Sorry.
