I love looking back on old posts and seeing if I still feel the same way or if I have changed my opinions. The post I am looking back on was titled Coffee Shop Chatter. It is as follows
I know this has been brought up in class before but does anybody else get seriously annoyed with people talking in coffee shops? I’m sitting in Biggby right now by E. Liberty trying to write my Soc paper (in all honesty more like trying to motivate myself to start writing my paper) and it is so loud. Everyone is talking. EVERYONE. I just want to sit here and drink my large black and tan coffee and crank out this paper. But I can’t because everyone is engaged in really good conversation and even when I try to stop-eavesdropping I fail. I understand that Biggby isn’t the library and they have every right in the world to be as loud as they want to be and it’s silly for me to be so upset and still not leave but still. Does anyone else get annoyed when they are trying to study at a coffee shop and can’t because people are talking? I can’t be the only one……right??
This post demonstrates how I think I have grown throughout undergrad as a person rather than I student. Now when I go to a coffee shop and try to get stuff done I have this aura about me that I think just warns people who want to talk off, and deters talking form those already present. I haven’t encountered a situation in which everyone was talking in a coffee shop in a very long time. Its probably my face. When I study face just screams “I am stressed, miserable, and cranky. I will yell at you”. I can’t tell if this is a good thing or a bad thing…… In addition to this face I have I have also grown as a person because now if I am studying in a coffee shop and everyone is loud I pack up and leave. Crazy. I have discovered, apparently recently, that I have two feet and that if I think really hard I can get them to move in a motion that allows me to transport myself. Ha, and Maggie from Junior year thought she was so stinkin’ smart.
