I suppose so. Some of it, at least. Are you uh — do you study psychology, then? Or is that just something you happen to be an expert in? -takes the coffee, thanking the lady and blowing lightly on it before taking a sip, closing his eyes as he does so- Thanks, again.
No, no, it’s just something cool that I like to think about. I study bilingual and multicultural teaching, with a minor in creative writing. I love languages, but I also love poetry. [He takes his own coffee, thanking the lady as well and placing a dollar or two in the tip jar.] No problem. I’m Logan, by the way.
Hm, no thanks. I have to stop talking about feelings.
There’s nothing wrong with thinking about your feelings…
That was good actually. I’m impressed.
Really? You’re not just pity saying that? Thank you.
Write me a poem then.
"Confusing as you may be/ I don’t mind you standing here right beside me/ Perhaps it’s the way you speak/ Or perhaps the way you make my knees feel weak/ Or maybe the way you’re actually interested in poetry.” I know, it was bad, probably because I just made that up on the spot, but I tried. I promise you that I’m usually much better, especially when inspiration strikes.
Are you any good at the whole poetry thing?
I’d like to believe so, yes.
I’m just in a shit mood, but I haven’t really been all that fond of overly happy people. What is your major exactly?
I’ll try and tone down the smiles for you, then. My major is in bilingual and multicultural teaching, but I also have a minor in creative writing. I like poetry.
I do, I just choose not to. It’s the learning of languages and such.
Is it because I’m bothering you? Some people say my smile is off-putting. I would hate it if you felt the same, but I understand if it is. Oh! I’m majoring in, basically, language teaching. What a coincidence!
You don’t talk much, do you? And what do you do in linguistics?
