...and all that jazz that Facebook has created in all of its weirdness and social anxiety and hopeful acceptance. Fess up: when you post something on Facebook, do you check your account about a million times a day to see who "liked" it? And while you're checking, do you feel sheepish doing so? Does someone "liking" what you posted give you self-worth? And if no one "likes" it, do you feel bad? Do you wonder if no one read it? If no one actually "likes" what you posted? Isn't all this social media a crazy-making tool? It's fascinating, isn't it? A whole new platform to make us feel wonderful/terrible, all at the same time.
Played my first softball game of the Theater League season last night, and BOY! was it F**KING FREEZING!!! I mean, in the 40s by the lake! The season started a couple of weeks ago, but this was the first game I could actually make. SO fab to see my amazing teammates! So fun, though stupidly cold, to be outside and throwing and catching and batting and running around. I love this game, but even more than the game, I love the camaraderie and the friendships that I've built over these last 20+ years of playing. It always feels like the start of summer when the season starts (if summer temps were in the 40s :-/
What are you up to today? I hope whatever you're doing, you're feeling great about yourself and don't need other people to validate you. "Like" yourself!
Fed the geese and ducks and random cowbirds and robins along the Riverwalk over the weekend. Look at these cuties! Many gorgeous goslings in different stages of fuzz from several goose families....awwwwwwwww :-)
