worst first impressions

worst first impressions
We’ve all heard the expression, “don’t judge a book by its cover,” but when it comes to first impressions, I am the absolute worst at reading people. I have a tendency to think I have a person all figured out, only to realize later that they are the complete opposite. It is part of our human nature to read certain signs and put new things into categories that we can associate them with, but I have been proven wrong with this so many times now that I am actively trying to work against the habit. In college it is especially easy to initially label someone as pretentious, scary, mean, or totally cool, only to find out that they are in fact the most down-to-earth, sweet-tastic, loving, or insane person. Moral of the story: give people a shot. They just might — and probably will — prove you wrong!
