As well as my 10 min observing my surroundings with my eyes, i did my listening activity in convo. I heard a LOT of talking of course, but i also heard someone tapping their cup, trays htting the tables when people sat down, chairs sliding in and out, cars outside, music, laughing, jackets bein takin off and on, silverware hitting the table, and phones viberating or going off.
So for our listening exercise i decided to sit in convo and listen to the people around me and see what I heard. Aside from hearing people eat and the moving of trays and chairs it was very interesting. I was sitting in the middle of one of the long tables and on one side of me there was a conversation about political platforms that changed quite suddenly to space and theories like the big bang theory. On the other side of me there was a conversation about feminism and one of my friends going on a rant about that. So it was very interesting to look to either side of me and hear two completely different conversations going on at the same time at the same table.
