People watching. I love it. Sometimes you can spot subtle things that are absolutely hilarious. Other times you can spot hints of their true feelings in a situation. (Sometimes that’s a good thing. Other times it puts a responsibility on your shoulders to help out - which again can be a good thing.)
I think observing, in this sense, is something that comes naturally to me. Since that’s the case, whenever I want to be more engaging I have to be conscious about it. However, I would encourage everyone to try and observe a little more often than normal. It’s incredible how much you can learn by paying attention to simple clues and body language. You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes, but I definitely think you’ll be shocked if you’re not used to doing this often.
On another note: if you see me doing this, yes, I’m fine. I’m only solving all of your drama issues, finding out how they really feel about you, and learning if so-and-so is really worth investing into. I’m not sad, just watching.
