Here's a story that gives me hope in humanity :) PART 1
A taxi driver once told me that he noticed me from afar and thought I looked beautiful. Confused and creeped out? That's not the whole story. For context, it was a busy day for me. I had to go and get some paperwork done and the place I had to get it done at was super far from where I live so I decided to take a taxi there for efficiency sake. It was super hot and standing in the heat was not fun but as soon I sat down in that taxi, he said "I had to stop, such a beautiful young lady should not have to stand outside in this heat,"
And when I tell you that must've been the most genuine compliment from an older man that didn't radiate with any sort of disturbing vibe I was in shock really. I usually avoid talking to taxi drivers as often they make weird conversations and ask alot about my private life. However, this man, started a conversation and asked me "so what's your opinion on studying business," and I, a commerce student obviously replied. The details are not important to this plot. However, the way the conversation flowed from business to how important one's education is to how this man had big aspirations; it was unlike any discussion I had ever had with an absolute stranger. We talked about things that normally would be between mutuals. And for someone who dreads small talk and avoids it at all costs, I was at ease that he had commented on things in which I believed in as well. It was, in essence, a conversation I will always cherish.
If you made it this far, hashtags are a joke. So it you do wanna support me and my works, any sort of engagement is very much appreciated and welcomed :)
