Compare and contrast
I’m a control freak! It doesn’t show that much, I’m pretty easy going, but every little detail of my life is carefully planned! It can be draining but I have this weird satisfaction about writing “compare and contrast” lists to make sure that I take the right decision! When I got interested in yoga, 5 years ago, I made this elaborate list of all the yoga studios that I knew in Montreal. I categorized them by distance, type of yoga, price, schedule flexibility and how pretty the studio looked on its web page (I don’t like “sterile” rooms with no sense of style! I can’t do downward dog in a school gym!). That is basically how I’m dealing with my insecurities! However, it seems that things changed since the beginning of the year because I became slightly compulsive. Sorry to disappoint but I didn’t get a body piercing (I did that in high school), a didn’t quit my dull 9-5 job to start my own flower shop (I would love that) and I didn’t even get a new haircut (but I should take an appointment). I simply registered for a felting class. The thing is, I have no idea what a felting class is! I wrote my name spontaniously because I remembered a bunch of cute little felt acorns on shining egg flickr page thinking that I would like to have a bowl full of acorns! Well…this is just how crazy my life is right now ;) Since my felting class starts in three weeks, for visual interest, I will post photos of my finished mobile.
