I can't remember the last time I wore shorts in public. Rolled up jeans -- yes. Dresses with panty hose - yes. (I know. I'm old school in court.) Yoga capri pants -- yes. But no shorts. I was probably 14 years old the last time I wore real shorts out in public. And that is absolutely ridiculous.

Cloudy Confidence

I confided in a friend how inadequate I was feeling. I told her that I have a business degree, not an English degree. I have only ever worked in advertising not writing. I'm under-qualified.
