"Wow, you have an awesome handwriting!"
How did he react?
He looked at me in disbelief. Took a second, then said "Thank you..!?",
How did I feel?
Thilo studies with me, I had not seen him before but today he sat next to me. Taking a glance to my right I discovered enormous aesthetics on his paper as he slowly wrote down word after word. He drew the letters, making the typeface look perfect. I was impressed. The compliment popped out of my mouth spontaneously, it was the first thing I ever said to Thilo. And I loved his reaction: With his eyebrows tickling his crown his face displayed surprise full on. Saying thank you his voice still questioned the compliment. A few minutes later I realized this was a nice one for the blog. I talked to him again, found out that he is from Berlin, too and that he also just started studying at FU. He dug the compliment project and asked a few questions. I am sure we'll see each other again in class and I look forward to it!
