I bumped into a long lost friend of mine today around morning time as I was off to the Ministry of Housing to complete the necessary steps to put the land allocated to me under my name. It was nice to see a friendly face at last since I had no idea of what to do there.
We collected up on the past and updated on anything new on both our lives and all that la di da.
Something I did notice with him is how he became so serious all of a sudden. And I don't mean all of a sudden. He was serious all the time. He just would not take a single joke I threw at him. Which, to me, seems very unfortunate. I like to have fun even at the most serious times - to loosen up and create the atmosphere.
Which brings me to the point behind this post.
I have noticed all over these last few weeks at my College, that there is not one single person in this establishment that would put a smile on their face.
I mean, I would be the only one who laughs, smiles and makes jokes and everyone's bolted at me like I am doing something utterly wrong.
For God sake's, it doesn't hurt to smile or laugh if someone looks your way, does it now?
