I have so much respect for people that do amazing things, people that go out of their comfort zone, people that risk their life to entertain you for a minute. People who take pleasure in making you feel amazing. As I said in one of my older posts: There are people who drawn from a glass of water and people that can swim from England to France.
People that dedicate their life to a certain passion. People who give away family to pursue what they love. It fascinates me that some people turn out to be such amazing husband/wife material and some people turn out to be a lone wolfs. People that wonder the world seeing things most of us will never get to. Why? Because people have choices. You make your own life, not one is going to make it the way you want. There’s so many places to go, so many things to see, so many situations I crave to be in, so many experiences I want to go through, so many people I want to meet, so many things I want to learn, the hard way.
It’s mind-blowing how some people have certain principles. Although I hate biology and chemistry, I love what the human mind can do. The places it can take you, surrounded by the 4 walls of your room. Just close your eyes and dream. People that have that ability, I envy you, so much.
I was in college the other day and I had this conversation with this guy, I asked him if he drinks alcohol. He calmly said: “I don’t drink”. I looked at him bewildered, my ignorance not realising the diversity in people. I aggressively asked him if he had ever tried it…….He looked in my eyes and smiled, saying: “I don’t drink”. He had that look on his face, like he didn’t understand my stupefaction. That’s human nature….
Sure, you have people that stab you in the back for a greater salary, and you have people that think they stole your girlfriend. Of course he doesn’t realise that if you allowed him to steal her, she stopped being yours before he even got there or should I say in there. 🙂
You also have people that annoy me until my blood starts to boil. They’re still people, they’re still fascinating, just not to me. People that have a hard time comprehending logical reasoning. Because everything in this world happens at the wish of a supernatural god that punishes you when you sin. SUCH LAUGH.
I find astonishing this rule people created. I was on my way to college the other day, I took my packet of cigarettes out, realising I had like 18 left I fainted a smile. 20 seconds later, someone walks up to me and asks me:”Do you have a spare cigarette?”. Mind-blowing. Not “I’ve seen you take your cigarettes out, can I please have one?”. No, of course not. You can’t put someone you don’t know in an awkward situation. You have to ask if they have a spare one, although you’ve seen their packet. There are certain rules that we follow, without even realising it.
It mesmerises me to learn about people, to see what makes them tick, what makes them do things, what makes them blindly follow religion, what makes them be so passionate about science, what makes people make the choices they make. I want to know their stories. I want to……KNOW.

I think it’s shit to live in England in 2013 and people to judge on your dressing code. I think it’s shit that I still hear people say : “Look at that faggot, he’s wearing yellow boots”. Or that he’s wearing a pink shirt, what a faggot. Or that he’s wearing some sunglasses you’re not fond of, it makes him inferior to you. Or that she’s wearing purple pants and apparently that’s not accepted either?
About 2 years ago one of my friends asked me why I don’t work in a particular area. I said, that’s for stupid people, not knowing I was the stupid one. Since when does what you do for a living determine what kind of person you are? This country is run on nepotism anyway.
I think it’s shit to patronize someone on the book they read because apparently books are made for males or females. Why can’t We read a book just because We like it? Why is it just for women, or just for men? Cataloging people on the music they listen to. That’s shit.
If you go to the opera you’re dubious, you’re doing it to get attention. It’s not socially acceptable to have different taste. That’s ……well, shit.
What are you going to do with your life? What are heading toward? What are your dreams? Are you planning on having a family? Children? Wife? 🙂 Do you intend to change your job? Do you want a “career”? What’s the next step in your life? Have you got enough money in the bank to buy a house? Have you got all the answers to these questions? I don’t. Some of them I don’t even want to think about.
So let’s try to spend less time worrying that X is wearing red jumper, or that Y wears slutty shorts and rather try to be interested in their mind, what they have to say.
Yours, A M Maxim.
