Journal Post: Observations on Disconnections

Two people are sitting next to each other in the library. Both have headphones in. One is writing in a red journal while the other is watching an online lecture. One has long brown hair while the other has blonde hair thrown in a pony tail wearing a black sweater. She has a coffee cup next to her, while the brown haired one has post-its all over her area. Neat vs. messy. As the brown haired girl observes the other, she thinks, “What is she learning about? Where is she from? What are her insecurities, her passions, her strengths, her backstories?” She will never know. Two people, so close, but so incredibly disconnected.
