Over the last several months or since the weather has been warming up is that I’ve been getting these weird looks directed at me for some unknown reason that I can’t fathom on why people are looking at me for like I’m kind of freak that shouldn’t leave my own home for any reason.
It doesn’t matter where I’m driving to, whether if I’m going to one of my classes downtown or to the class that I have in the Art Complex or to one of the computer labs on UAF’s main campus for doing some homework for 2 of the 4 classes that I have.
When people do look at me whether or not if I’m in my car or walking to a building (post office, supermarket or wherever) I get a look that says that I’m not suposed to be there or that I have a big red bulls eye on my forehead, on my back, or even on my car. Granted I need to get my car washed and into the service department of the Nissan dealership to have a very major servicing done.
The looks that I have been getting recently, just gives me another reason that I should move to the lower 48 as soon I get my degree’s in Business Administration and maybe in Technology too. Plus, its to the point where I need to have a very major change in my life – like moving back to the lower 48.
Anyways, I’m just tired to a lot of bull shit that I get no matter where I go here in Fairbanks, Alaska. I do my best about being friendly towards to other people. For example, I like to keep doors open for the ladies when ever I can or when people have boxes of mail leaving the post office on Geist Road.
Still, the weird looks and the bs that I’m getting is bugging to the point where I just don’t want to take anymore classes, going to the gym on a semi regular basis, and even to the supermarket.
Sometimes, no matter when I’m driving there is usually someone that drives like there isn’t enough time to get to their destantion so they would rush to get where their going to. Recently, as I was heading downtown for one the classes that I’m in and for some reason I had to go to fourth avenue so I could get to the parking garage and this older guy, along with a woman in a big 4 door ford truck pulls along side and gets in front of me regardless that I had to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting this guys trucks rear end. People complain the way I drive around town. Maybe my driving could be better, but still, people drive like their always in a mad rush to get somewhere.
I’ve also noticed over the years living here in Fairbanks that 8 out 10 times that people rush past will get the red light, and yet I get to the light at the same time that the person that rushed past to get to the intersection. I’ve seen this type of driving all over town, and its just makes me sick that people would rush to any giving intersection and slam on their brakes, and would expect to get through the intersection.
