Drifting Away

I suddenly find that I have been doing everything in my power to aviod uni and just about everything about it. I skip most socials, I do lunch solo, I go home straight after class.

I remember a time when I said hello to people on my course whom I studied with previously. After getting blank looks for awhile, I displayed my own blank face when I'm on screensaver mode too. People are strange, when you're a stranger. Faces look ugly when you're alone. No one remembers your name when you’re strange.

I find university attitide disappointing and altogether difficult to digest. I find junior college attitude pressured with suspicion and mistrust. I find school attitude filled with cliques and coded behaviour. And now that I'm away from Coventry I feel myself drifting from people I used to hang with. At uni, I am surrounded by people constantly but there is not one face I know. It's just that I'm always drifting.

  2. Yes. I do hate zombies. Note the sunken look, the shadowed eyes, and that repulsive stench of mindlessness. On first sighting, any zombie must immediately be dispatched with a crossbow (headshot only) or a Flak Cannon. Repeat for Green Man demon.

  3. Do you reckon if you shoot a zombie with with a suped up magnum mixed with blue herbs (somehow, this is from what I've been told mind you…) they unsuprisingly lie on the floor with a now leaky blood system but when you walk past they are still up for some more and try and grope your leg? Do you?? I didn't think so… Well the moral of the story is that you shoot twice in the head and one in the groin for good measure.

    Seriously though, I get the same reaction sometimes and it is a bit hurtful when the recipient don't recognise you so my advice is that shrug it off and continue. Most other people are lonely so they probably don't ignore you but just don't expect to see a freindly face in the crowd.
