8 – Day 2 – the happy grump

Day 2 : Write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forgot

“Why do you always look like you have a problem?”

It’s one thing to have people think you are depressed, it’s a completely different thing to have people tell you that you look scary/intimidating (And yes, I’ve received these comments multiple times by now). And to be quite honest, I really don’t understand why I keep getting this remark every now and then.

I’m not saying I’m as zen as Buddha or I am at utmost peace with the whole world, but I don’t have that big of a bone to pick either. Are you kidding me, I don’t even think of anything most of the time. Put it this way: whenever you see me walking somewhere all by myself, the biggest chance is that you’ll find me with earphones plugged in. And whenever it happens, you can bet that I’m not thinking of anything. And thanks to my super terrible eyesight, I won’t be able to judge what people are doing/looking like because hey, I can’t see that well anyway! Why would I want to pick a fight with anyone?

I’m 4′ 10″, I don’t quite look my age, and you are telling me I look like I’m about to smash/hit/punch you? Really?
