I’ve discovered that there are people who exist that connect to others easily. They can make even the shyest of people open up and not feel awkward about it. I talked to Macky earlier this morning at the Health Service and he seemed like that kind of guy. I’ve never talked to him before, and at first, I was cold towards him. I don’t like talking to people. However, two hours later and with no doctor in sight, I started the conversation. I felt the sincerity in his voice, and it did not seem like he was forced to talk to me. His voice had an easygoing tone. I probably won’t talk to him again, but it comforts me that people like him are in this world and are all around me. I easily feel tired and I do not want to converse with people who make it seem like I should be grateful they’re talking to me. I will easily be spent. I do not have energy for those, and it pains me to say that most of the people I encounter give off a vibe that’s difficult to get around of. Granted, my various radars are always off, but when I feel something, it would be hard to convince me otherwise. I also talked to Jared last week in the Biochemistry laboratory. Even though he doesn’t know me, he kept the conversation going (at least until my group mates came back and I abruptly stood, never to talk to him again). I was surprised when he told me he was a shy person, because it seemed like he was quite engaging whenever he talked. He didn’t seem bored by whatever small talk I made (same with Macky) and looked interested. Maybe it was because neither of them looked at their phones at all during the whole duration of our conversations. I’m just glad I talked to new people this month.
