Growing up I always afraid that there was a certain role for everyone and no matter what you did there wasn't really anything you could do to break free from it. I'm not a religious person but what if there's some force out there that has our lives laid out, and if you don't like it then you're pretty much SOL.

Call me critical.

As I sit here at my favorite Starbucks I've been nursing the same double Latte for about an hour. Quietly drawing in my sketchbook an unwitting model across the room. She's in my art history class and I see her around once in a while, I don't know her name but at this point I'd give my right eye for a conversation.

Call me sappy.

My brother says I should just have some balls and go say hi, but if it were really that simple I'd never be lonely. I don't know, maybe I missed out on some important people skill somewhere during my adolescence. I did spend a lot of time on my own, maybe I fudged on some all important developmental stage. Whatever the case I just run into this invisible wall with new people.

Call me a loser.

My mystery lady gets up to leave and I nearly spill what's left in my cup trying to act casual. With the sketch finished and the girl gone I pick up my things and head out, I have to get to class anyway. As I get in my car I wonder for the thousandth if I shouldn't have transferred from Harvard, I mean it's Harvard, the end all of snotty, prestigious universities. But then I remember for the thousandth time that being on the other side of the country after dad killed himself didn't seem right.

Call me self righteous.

Besides, I'm going to be out of place just about anywhere, may as well be someplace where I know a few people.
