I am nervous about starting school tonight.
I know exactly how it’ll be walking in to the classroom tonight: everyone will stare at each other. No one will say anything. It will be as if we all think we are invisible.
I have been feeling invisible for a while now, actually. On Saturday I was rudely slammed into by two different people (one was a tiny asian lady at the Farmers’ Market and the other was a woman’s large purse on the bus). Maybe I am invisible and this is why no one talks on the first day of class. My invisibility makes them uncomfortable.
Minneapolis is a hard city in which to make friends. Also I am stupidly shy most of the time.
