I have nothing to wear…to stay in my room? Huh?

Okay, I PROMISE I will go back to editing and post the last parts of my short story (Laura’s Closet), but something came to mind, and I MUST share. I mean, this is still a blog, right? Okay, good!

The temperatures are dropping fast again – because Mother Nature apparently has a grudge against Ontario – and even though I have a furnace, I still feel like wearing a sweater. Perhaps, because they make me feel cozy and safe, like hats  – oh my goodness, I love hats! But, that’s another story. I’m rambling now.

Anyway, finding a sweater sounds good, right? The thing is, I seem to go through my wardrobe many times, trying to find the perfect sweater to wear, just to be in my room! It’s not like anyone is going to see me (unless I Skype), but I tend to do this with other pieces of clothing, as well. Basically, my room turns into a fashion show, and my floor becomes the runway, and for whom? I don’t know, my stuffed animals? Imaginary Robert Downey Jr. and Leonardo DiCaprio? It is fun to do, and it does save me a lot of time, whenever I need to pick and outfit to go out. But, other than that, there isn’t too much a point. Well, I guess when it comes to ‘random me,’ there shouldn’t be.

Honestly, I’m probably the only woman in the world who spends less than hour getting ready. Although, I like to keep or start a fashion trend, I like to use my instincts when I pick the right outfit. This is also true when I go shopping. If I go with my friends, I stay for hours, because they stay for hours, and also because I love to hang out with my friends. If I’m on my own, I already know my stores, so it doesn’t take me hours to shop – and this is the part, where men begin to rejoice. When I’m in my favourite stores (like Suzy Shier), I let my eyes do the talking, and my heart do the picking. It doesn’t matter how ‘cute’ an outfit may seem, or how well it may fit. If I don’t feel it, I’m not buying. This also prevents me from buying clothes that will collect dust in my closet.

My stuffed animals certainly enjoy the ‘fashion show’, and probably the many spirits that visit my room – my late ancestors are definitely doing a facepalm – and yes, I do enjoy it, but sometimes it does feel a bit ridiculous. Ah well, this is me, and I’m not gonna change, but how about you? Do you do this, as well? Whether you’re a woman or a man?

Ps: I’ve noticed, I’m starting to call myself a ‘woman’ instead of a ‘girl’. I’m growing up!

Do we run into the same strangers again?

I finally was able to walk to the grocery store today. The sidewalks aren’t icy! I guess Mother Nature is not on PMS anymore. In the middle of my walk, a thought came into my mind. The strangers we walk by or see on a daily basis, do we get to see them again? To be honest, I don’t really notice a lot of people I pass by on a daily basis, so I do wonder if I’ve been passing by them for a long time, or maybe for the first time.

I tend to see a lot of seniors (as in the elderly) if I go to the mall early in the mornings. You see them in groups, in pairs, alone.  How many times have I run into the same seniors? Will I live to be one and look as happy with their friends as they do? I know everyone has a different life, and we all have struggles, but I have yet to see an angry senior while s/he eats breakfast with her/his friends. It’s probably just where I live, or my mind just loves to play tricks. Oh well…

I like to think we will all stop running into unpleasant people, but that will never change. For every person that makes a positive change, there is a person that makes a negative one. Eventually, I do hope one day we can all live in peace. 

Not everyone you come across with is meant to stay in your life. You never know who are you going to meet, and how they’re going to shift your life (whether in a positive or negative direction). Sometimes when you meet someone new, and they tell you they used to take steps where you have already stepped on, you say, “We’ve probably run into each other at some point”. What are the odds you have?

Who knows, maybe the next person you bump into will change your life.

To be honest, I don’t know why such a thought would elaborate in my mind. And to be brutally honest here, I don’t think I’m making a lot of sense. 

 

Of course! The world sort of rules me today!
