well that's... odd.

I've noticed a funny thing, walking around Goucher with my cello. It's a big, heavy, awkwardly-shaped thing to carry around, but I've learned to maneuver pretty well. I can do stairs and escalators, get through pretty much any door (although I haven't tried a revolving door...), and generally just get myself where I need to go. But it's still really nice when someone holds open a door for me when they see me dragging this bigass clunky case with me. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

Very few people at Goucher bother to go out of their way and hold doors for me, and that's okay. I'm not going to complain about that. But I've noticed the weirdest phenomenon - the people who DO hold the door for me are often carrying very large things themselves. Art supplies, other instruments, stacks of books. I guess it's that they are actively thinking about and understand the inconvenience of transporting huge shit and so it's a sympathetic gesture of sorts, but still... It strikes me as pretty backwards.
