Life's too short to correctly pair your socks

I realised that my first post of the year didn't much acknowledge the fact that it was the first post of the year. I know I used the phrase 'New Year's Day' at least once, but the post didn't have much to do with it. I thought I might just make up for it now.

Over 2010 a lot of things have happened and a lot of things have changed.

There are ordinary things:

I now fit size nine shoes.
I am convinced that The Cure is a band that I desperately need to hear more of.
I have eaten sushi.
I have purchased a flippin' sweet jacket that I wouldn't have been daring enough to get in, say, 2009.
I have learned how to correctly spell necessary on the first try.

Then there are the more odd things I have done in 2010. I realised that there are a few quirky things that I never would have done in 2009 for fear of what people would think of me. Life is more fun when you get over other people's opinions and do things like:

Dress as a space cowboy.
Wear a sailor hat in public.
Wear rainbow striped gumboots on a formal occasion.
Write an entire story using mainly song lyrics.
Write "I wish I had a Harry Potter shirt" on a T-Shirt and wear it in public.
Sing. Constantly. I didn't realise how often I sing until it was pointed out to me. I'm OK with this.

I know that if a ran into someone I had known in primary school while I was wearing my sailor hat, they wouldn't recognise me. I had never done anything like that in primary school, I was so worried about what people will think. I am so glad I got over that. Even when everyone is at school, everyone wearing the same uniform, doing the same thing, you never know what they are all thinking. You never know who decided not to correctly pair their socks that day either. Just saying.

formal feet



  1. You always say exactly what I'm thinking!

  2. You mean. . . you also wear rainbow gumboots to formal occasions?

  3. No, i mean, i wish i could! what i mean is... not the exact details but the meaning behind it :)
