there have been a few occasions in my life when i’ve been told by those around me that i was embarrassing them — in other words, they didn’t really want to be associated with me at that exact moment. the reasons have varied from my being too loud, to my stubborn refusal to take a leaf out of my hair, to the ridiculously cool sunglasses i recently acquired.
yes, i have new shades.Â and i love them.
and although everyone else laughs at them, makes fun of me when i wear them, and have dubbed me “mickey mouse” because how large and round they are, they’re really just jealous because i’m cool enough to get away with such a ridiculous style.
yeah, i’ll keep telling myself that.
on a bit more serious note, i have a dear sister who is in california and is playing in a guitar competition tomorrow. and i’ll end this this rather uninspired post by letting her know that i’m thinking of her from across the country.
julia, take luck!
