I've just finished Catcher in the Rye and I'm not quite sure what to say. It wasn't good or bad, long or short, exciting or boring, perfect or imperfect. It was captivating by the way the mood was set and I was brought into the mind of a young man in trouble. I'm glad I read it.
I've been very busy lately. Today I ended up walking for 3 and a half hours, the dogs in the neighborhood got exercised to say the least. I spent yesterday and the day before in Belfast which is one of my favourite places in Ireland. It was, kind of, Holly's first time out of the country. Only legally, let's face it.. It's the same country!!! Anyway, more about that later.
I wanted to mention something. You know the way people assume a lot of things?? I've never been one to assume much. I always ask if I'm unsure. I have always done that because it makes sense to me. However, it's been brought to my attention lately how much people assume about other people! And they talk about their assumptions to other people, judging people. It always says so much more about the person assuming than the person being assumed about. And most of the time it makes no sense whatsoever. It literally blows my mind how much people can assume about other people, they will sit and assume and figure out the other person's life, assuming they know best while their own life is a mess and they can't get organized. They are always miserable people. People who actually do know best, don't assume, judge other peoples lives or, most definitely, don't talk about other peoples lives in a degrading way. That I know for sure.
Shout out to all the non-assumers. If you are an assumer, do yourself a huge favor and stop.
