  1. Are we telekinetically connected? I totally started singing “you are my sunshine, my only sunshine…” to my friends just yesterday the 9th without reading this post until today the 10th. I have fond memories of singing that song with Best Friend R.’s younger brother in the Shannon one night.

The next youngest person is at least 24. Some might say I freak out for nothing, but I know there are other people who have experienced some kind of scrutiny. My friend’s mom told me off once because I made a joke about her daughter’s skirt being too low.

Is that exactly a bad thing- not exactly. The truth is we all judge, both good or bad- oh she looks pretty, oh she looks slutty- but what matters is how we listen and act on those thoughts.
