Introverts don’t get lonely if they don’t socialize with a lot of people, but we do get lonely if we don’t have intimate interactions on a regular basis.
[eBooks] aren’t books. You can’t hold a computer in your hand like you can a book. A computer does not smell. There are two perfumes to a book. If a book is new, it smells great. If a book is old, it smells even better. It smells like ancient Egypt. A book has got to smell. You have to hold it in your hands and pray to it. You put it in your pocket and you walk with it. And it stays with you forever. But the computer doesn’t do that for you. I’m sorry.
THIS IS AS SCARY AS “BLINK” OMG GUESS WHO ISN’T SLEEPING TONIGHT
My senior year of college, we’d watch the Madonna version of Evita and say, “Look at all Evita did before she died at 26!” And then when challenge ourselves to do as much as she did.
We didn’t have Wikipedia in college, so I only now just realized she was 33 when she died… so somehow her achievements (however you measure them) seem more manageable.
But, shit, I’m still older than Evita was when she died and I’m not the first lady or vice president of any country.

First there was Kacey Musgrave’s Follow Your Arrow
Make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls
If that’s something you’re into
When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint, or don’t
Just follow your arrow
Wherever it points, yeah
Follow your arrow
Wherever it points
Now there’s Girl In A Country Song by Maddie and Tae on high rotation on country stations… it criticizes the messages about women in popular country. And it’s become a popular song.
Bein’ the girl in a country song
How in the world did it go so wrong?
Like all we’re good for
Is looking good for you and your friends on the weekend
We used to get a little respect
Now we’re lucky if we even get
To climb up in your truck, keep my mouth shut and ride along
And be the girl in a country song
I feel like there’s something bigger happening here and I want someone else to really dig into it.
My mama came from a softer generation
Where you get a grip and bite your lip just to save a little face
Go and fix your make up, girl, it’s just a break up
Run and hide your crazy and start actin’ like a lady
Cause I raised you better, gotta keep it together
Even when you fall apart
But this ain’t my mama’s broken heart
