Man on the street


It was about a week or so ago that I was out shopping fully consumed by my stresses and worries. As I was leaving the super market, a man (aged 30 at most) on the street looked up at me, he didn’t look particularly sad or happy.

I had this urge to start a conversation with him but I didn’t really know what to say. I walked over to him, fumbled in my pocket for change to add to his collection, said ‘Have a nice day’ and that was it.

As I walked away I wondered if I should have said something else instead, given him more money or even bought him food.

It’s just over a week later and I’m still thinking about the man on the street. I wonder what has/will become of him. I know he is not alone but yet he seemed so significant.

Changes over time

This time last year college was so different in comparison to now. Honestly for the first 2-3 months I didn’t really like it. The main reason being that I didn’t really know anyone and the people I did know I didn’t know very well (I only knew about 4 people out of about 1000 1st years).

I remember having to spend my frees in the library, even when I had no work to do because I didn’t have anyone to hang out with. At lunches I would walk into the refectory, frantically searching for a familiar face. In general I felt like I didn’t belong and I started to regret not going to the same college as my secondary school friends.

I made a grand effort in all my classes to get to know people and make new friends. It was actually pretty fun getting to know people, I actually found it much easier getting to know guys than girls which is a little odd, as I went to an all girls secondary school.

So fast forward to 24th October 2013, so much has changed. I have lots of amazing friends, I’m enjoying all the subjects I study and I feel like I fit in.

So today in particular was a SUPER day which I will blog about in another post as I have a lot to say.
