I have really managed to shock myself this time. I admit I never liked shopping anyway. Even when I was a teenager and in my younger years. But if course I did it because all my friends did and it was just a part of our “hanging out”.
But whenever it was time to go for a shopping deep inside I never really enjoyed it. And I really like new things, it’s just the process that I don’t like. Somehow I feel it’s a waste of time. Many times I even felt like those guys standing outside shops smoking or sitting waiting for their girlfriends to get out of the stores.
But I have never felt quite as I did yesterday. For 2-3 weeks I knew I had to get a new pair of sport shoes and I skipped on my mountain walks during this time. Which of course had its consequences on my weight.
So I surprised myself enough by putting off the shopping although I do have a car and it is only a question of getting to the right spot and walking through the mall.
I just wish it was a quicker process. Those review sites can be useful when buying something technical or machines but when it comes to shoes you just HAVE to try them on.
I have also noticed lately that I have picked only one store where I know I like the design and when I need new clothes I just go there and get what I need. My aversion towards physical shopping also makes me buy same clothes just in different colors when I do find something that suits me.
Like those men that have only one shirt model and costume multiplied 5 times in their closet and when they go to work they just pick the clean one. Well I assure you these men are not an urban myth and they really do exist.
But it was even scary how I HATED going out to buy those darn shoes. I have no idea where this is leading but it doesn’t feel too good.
So after visiting as many as 4 (four) shops :), I managed to find the perfect shoes. I was looking for bright colored ones as that is what is preferred for mountain clothes. And I have seen some colorful sport shoes on other girls and I have decided I want something like that.
Let me present you mine:
In case of trouble not the fashion way!
As you can see they are quite colorful, I’ll be shining away all those mountaineers! 🙂
So in my new color craze I also bought some coloring pencils and a notebook. I have a little mania for nice pens and notebooks. And I just love them when they are new, unwritten. I buy them every 2-3 months and luckily they are inexpensive so I get to enjoy them for cheap:
Oh I am going to love using them! They are SO pretty and new.
So by now you have noticed the pattern: the more colors the better. Ever since college I have had this color thirst. At one point I was missing colors so bad in my life that I was watching some tattoo shows just for the colors in them. I also remember the enormous sense of relief seeing a colorful city graffiti some years ago.
Yes I am thinking I sold my soul to make a living instead of doing what I really love. But a man’s gotta eat you know!
So here is my last color splash, it’s my small backpack that I adore and I think it will be a good match with my new shoes:
I have also decided to post more often in my personal stuff. I just subscribed to a mail from a person doing random reports from his life. Just some ordinary everyday life things. I really like it. So see you soon!
