September 27, 2004
I was analysing my behaviour around those I've met since arriving, when i'm just chatting and socialinsing. I realised that this is probably the most natural i've acted in a good few years. Around my friends at home, I know each intimately (not like that) and so i know what to say to make them laugh or think or get excited. Because i dont know these new people, they're personalities dont affect me in the same way, and so i find that i'm making conversation from scratch, not based on past experiences or mutual friends. It's interesting to see what sort of stuff i come out with. So along with all these new external personalities, its a bit like meeting myself for the first time too.
