Last night, as I approached BART, I realized I had forgotten my iPod. WHY GOD WHY?! I thought to myself. I lowered my head and whined for a bit because, seriously, I'm never without those wonderful voices in my head. But later, as I was walking around downtown Berkeley, I realized how nice it was to hear cars passing by, people laughing, crosswalk signs beeping.
I always knew how closed-off I seemed, with my serious facial expression and my headphones in my ears. It's nice to open oneself up to the world every once in a while, expecially one as bizarre and interesting as the Berk.
