Over the 11, 12, 13, 41 years we’ve been around, I think we can all recall someone saying that its the little things that count. I’ve done my searching through all the teachers’ blogs and their students’. Ms. Donelly of Donelly’s Long Story Short… gave her students an assignment that I, a student of Ms. Mack, have been inspired to do.
Things I Notice:
Has anyone ever thought about those rings around the ankles of those who wear Converse? I have a salmon colored pair myself, and boy, do they cut into my ankles sometimes! I like the little quirk of noticing someone’s ankles with the ring. It helps to be someone who spends a lot of time looking down.
You know that thing when people tell you that they’re going to guess what you’re thinking? I’ve come up with a solution. Half the time, you ARE thinking about how that person will never guess what you’re thinking of!
There’s a certain spot on your foot where if have it partially on the floor, your leg will start to shake. It feels crazy, but not many can do it by trying. It just seems to come naturally.
How many of you have a library card? When I check out a book from the library, I see the little crease at the top corner of the page. I love seeing this because it makes me feel like others really enjoyed the book so much that they were willing to keep their place at any cost.
The most important thing about owning an electronic device to me, is personalization. Sometimes I look at my friends’ iPads and realize how much a screensaver can mean to someone. A screensaver can give away tons of information on the owner.
When I moved into my new house, the first thing I noticed was the 37 hooks placed in odd spots in every room. I like to imagine what used to hang on those many hooks.
My dad has a Spotify account that I basically dominate. I use it way more than him, and I always notice one thing in particular. The music I listen to is going in HIS history, ex: Howard Recently Favorited Issues by Julia Micheals.
Ink is very powerful. A majority of those who use pens don’t actually use them on paper, but on their skin instead. The things that people write on their hands are crazy. Doodles, reminders, quotes, hearts as a sign of support, and things letting out anger, sadness, and frustration.
Now, what do you notice? Let me know in the comments. There’s always little things waiting for you in the world.
