  • Whether its in a classroom or on your trek to your destination, there are people everywhere.

    They all have their lives, thoughts, and names just like you. It is so easy to to solely focus on your own business and continue walking by all passer-byers with my eyes focused on the ground ahead of me.

    But recently, I have been making small talk with my seatmates in my classes. They all have stories, these people. And the moment when they tell you something that coincides with something you thought no else does--you feel the connection.

    All people are amazing. I regret not discovering more of peoples' stories. Life is so full of stories and there are so many lives out there!
