Three students per post gets on my nerves. Little lost girl fandom strikes at a chord that is really very little to do with jealousy. But speaks of their aching need for validation.
It does mean the pressure if off and I can relax. But the boundaries become very blurred as to what is private and who is who in the order of things.
An old college associate came to visit recently and they dined together. The bright twenty year old daughter is now the new social media fan, sending loving good vibes on a daily basis.
I doubt any of this has much sincerity to it. Simply a cry-out for adoration, and a lust for pretty things to fall bewitched into the drama.
I did it.
So I know it well.
