The message in the song (Shake It Off) is a problem I think we all deal with and an issue that we deal with on a daily basis. That we don’t live just in a celebrity take down culture, WE live in a take down culture. People will find anything about you and twist it to where it’s weird or wrong or annoying or strange or bad. You have to not only live your life in spite of people who don’t understand you, you have to have more fun than they do.
I guess twenty is kind of old to be getting your ears pierced for the first time. I never really thought about getting them done before, but I just thought to myself one day ‘what the hell - Everyone else has theirs done, so why not at least try it?’ So I went out a couple of days later and got them done. It does still feel weird to have them done, especially when I wear long dangling earrings or big hoops and feel them banging against my neck when I move, but I like how they look, and I’m glad I decided to get them done.
Catherine, I have something to tell you. As far as I am concerned, our marriage is at an end. Actually, there is no need to end something which has never been. You and I were never truly married. It was a misunderstanding of scripture and a papal misapplication of canon law. It’s true I did not know about these things before but it has been brought to light by learned opinion and it weighs down my conscience. It has forced me to give up your bed and board once and for all. All that remains is for you to choose where to live and to retire there as quickly as possible. I swear to you all will be done for the best.
I don’t know, I’m literally the most awkward, socially strange person.
