Being Deviant for a Day In this project I decided to be over-talkative in the sense that whenever someone spoke to me and asked how I was doing or what was new in my life, I would go above and beyond what they probably were expecting me to do so. So for me being a deviant in this way made perfect sense because I normally don’t talk much about myself, more of a listener than anything.

We show so much emotion in our eyes, you can tell a story just by looking into someone’s eyes the way they feel or even sometimes what they have been through shows. I have
