as a college student, we are expected to express ourselves by writing thousand word essays. Our papers need to clearly express what we want to say and engage the reader. No matter how many hours I do or do not put into this paper, it may only be in English or with my attempt at good grammar. However the paper that we write is not a universally understood paper no matter how well I write it; there are limitations in language.
a language that is universal is the one that is not spoken at all.
people can speak with their bodies by how they physically present themselves to others, but I think the most powerful expression of true emotions is in your eyes.
tears can flow like a waterfall when you are hurt or when you are so filled with joy that only water dripping down your cheek is released from your body.
pupils can be dilated in the fear of a shocking or terrifying event
although different from these black and white emotions are expressed and easily identified by others, more complex emotions can be expressed just through one’s eyes.
Have you ever looked into someone’s eyes and felt as though they can see straight into your soul? I don’t mean the silly things you read in books, but when (in my case, a guy) had such powerful eyes that by just one look it felt as though he knew all of your secrets. Have you ever looked at someone that you had just met and were just lost in their eyes and receiving a loving face in return for yours? You may know nothing about the person, but there is a moment when you both look at each other and something just automatically clicks.
These occurrences are so powerful between the two individuals it is hard for either one to look away, although I am always the one that looks away first. I will never forget the feeling or power of a simple look that has no way of physically touching you, but will remain with you forever.
Looks may be deceiving, but the true emotion behind another’s eyes hold the truth and is the same in any language.
Living in two different places throughout a year makes you feel as though you have two separate lives. I have one in Gainesville and the other back home.
I didn’t expect Fort Myers to welcome me home with open arms when traveling home from Gainesville. I’m not saying that we parted poorly, just while in college I felt as though I had left nothing behind besides seeing my family everyday. Now, I know that I did leave a lot behind, and I missed it. It’s kind of funny how you come back and everything ticks the same with a few changes here and there. And these changes are more in what new building popped up than day to day life and people.
Gainesville is still my home, but it is my home away from home. I love both places. However Gainesville is much more exciting for late night lifestyle, while home is.. well, if you don’t do whatever you are during the day… you are not going to do too much.
All in all, I love my two homes and my different friends that I have in both places. :D
