See that was the very first thing that I noticed when I moved here... It' absolutely wonderful, just walking up the street in this place. I've never lived anywhere where 4 out of 5 people will make eye contact with you, maint it, and give you a warm smile; one that almost always touches the eyes, even Hell, random friendly discussions even pop up pretty often.
I'm used to California (Sacramento) and Jersey; people's
having a 'fuck you' in them, and too much eye contact (sometimes any at all, least in Sacramento) being met with an immediate challenge to a fight. I am most definitely glad to be away from that shit.
That's the problem. The hyper-friendly people snarling behind the back ar what I'm dealing with here right now. I might go into more detail later, bu
I'm hoping to find that happy medium somewhere around here. It seems like there is still a much greater likelihood for finding something like that aro
In a way, it's very handy and a relief that people ignore each other, though, once you get used to it. It liberates you from having to stop your flow of thoughts just because there are other people around and someone might be approaching. It lets you do whatever you want, think whatever you want, and not HAVE to do anything you don't want. It's freedom in a sense. You can just listen to some music and ponder the mysteries of the Universe without being interrupted, so you will have more peace, peace of mind and freedom.
But I really can't understand the fake 'how are you' stuff. If you don't want to pry or be nosy about someone's "existence, and how it's happening", why would you ever utter those intruding words? Why not just greet and then express whatever you truly want to express, or if it's something you don't want to express, express nothing? What would HAPPEN, if someone didn't say their obligated "in what way do you exist right now"?
