I seriously think public transport, especially at peak hours, brings out the worst in people. For me, those murderous instincts tend to take over. The sweaty arms brushing against mine, or people charging past me to make sure they get that empty seat they’re eyeing from a distance, everyone just leaning against you, people staring at you unnecessarily- it really irks me. Also doesn’t help when a couple is engaging in some PDA, releasing endorphins-being happy and what not, and I’m here barely breathing.
It scares me though that I sometimes have thoughts of killing the person next to me so that I have a little bit more breathing space.
It’s good then that I rely on buses for transport more than I do for trains. I usually get wonderful seats on buses and have a little bit more time to sleep. However my sleeping on buses would most probably instigate those aforementioned murderous tendencies in others around me. My head constantly rolling around ( I think my head head must have hit at least 3 people around me today) and sometimes I get the feeling I snore too (although I don’t really snore- I think)
So anyways, listening to some tuneage (look at how cool I am using this term) usually calms me down- right until the next person accidentally pushes me or knocks into me. So I’ve made a playlist of sorts that brings you into your own little world- helping you to create a much needed force-field (Serious, whaaat!). Nevertheless, enjoy this one. (:
