The Elevator

One place I know I can find myself everyday, multiple times a day, is the elevator. I live on the 11th floor so I can’t really avoid taking the elevator everyday. It has become such a routine in my day that I don’t even realize how often I am on the elevator. Taking the time to actually notice what my time in the elevator is like was really interesting. I noticed that when the elevator moves I feel pressure on my knees and feet. Almost everyone in the elevator avoids eye contact and stays on their phone. Different elevators smell different, some smell like Chick Fil A and some smell like pizza. When the elevator moves, I hear a beep as we pass every floor. These are just some of the small parts of my day that occur without me noticing.
