A Personal Ethnographic Report On Halloween

1056 words - 5 pages

When I learned that I would have to do my ethnographic report on what I did during Halloween, I was worried because I live in Turnpike and the most excitement that happens in turnpike is the sound of the garbage truck when it comes to pick up the Wednesday trash. Fortunately something did happen to me and I realized I would not have to write a boring paper of how I woke up and just stayed in my room the whole day. Well the day started off with me waking up and walking to the bathroom to take a shower, as soon as the turned the water on I realized I had left my shower and rather than turning off my shower I stayed in because the warmth of the hot water was too seductive for me to get out and get my towel. In the shower I had my usual thoughts about life, death, and comebacks to old arguments. Afterword I got out of my shower and reached for my toothbrush, which was located in a cupboard behind the toilet, but I grabbed at it too quickly and it fell in the toilet. I stood over my toilet for about five minutes just staring at my toothbrush in the toilet not believing what just happened, after that I started blaming myself for being too impatient. When I was done feeling sorry for myself I went into my room in search of another toothbrush but unluckily I couldn’t find one, so I had to go walk to the local store at around 7:30 in search of a toothbrush. While searching for a replacement toothbrush I realized that not that many people were in the store, I had always thought that stores were busiest in the morning and evening but apparently that’s not true. Once I got my new toothbrush I finished brushing, got dressed and went to catch the 11 to the Transit Center.
In the bus I realized something interesting, people chose to stand up rather than sitting down when there were seats available. It was a strange that people chose to stand when they could have sat, I tried to figure out the reason, I thought it might be because their stop was close or they were young and active. I figured out that the people who chose to stand up were mostly men who were young but still I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t want to sit down. If it was me in their situation I would have gladly take up the empty seat, but the men didn’t move they remained standing all the way to the transit center. Now this realization might not seem that interesting but that wasn’t the only day it occurred, it occurs every day and I have yet to find out why the men chose to stand up rather then seat down, maybe it’s because the seat are not comfy. Another thing I noticed why on the bus was that nobody take the middle seat, if a row has three seats and one person on each side with the...
