I have a habit of assuming that people see me and think I'm putting on some sort of performance whenever I leave the house with my camera or any other hobby piece that draws attention, even though it's most likely a figment of my imagination. The last thing I want is for someone to be 'intrigued' by me under false pretenses, or to assume that I think I'm worthy of their attention for that reason alone.
I don't like people watching me at the computer or when I'm sleeping. I also get anxious when people stare at me in some form, my clothes or the way I walk. There's a girl in my class who always gazes at my shoes, it makes me feel weird. And yes, I forgot - people watching me write... Worst thing ever!

yeah I had that habit too when I was a kid. but more preposterous. I imagined the whole world was some elaborate setup for a play with me as the main character. Like the main idea behind the Truman Show and I've heard this same idea from others too.
