In North America, we have many, many clothing brands – Gap, Old Navy, Abercrombie, Hollister, Guess, Adidas, Lululemon, Nike, etc. As a former teen, I can say that brands are related to social status in school (though they shouldn’t be). But now that I’m an adult, brands for the sake of brands have zero impact on my clothing choices.
The people who know me well know that I have a little bit of an obsession with organizing – that generally means a neat, well-labeled, efficiently implemented processes that makes logical sense to most humans. I’d say I’m a little more obsessive than most regarding where to put items and how to organize ‘stuff’. But I’ve come to discover that my slight OCD hardly compares to some of systems implemented by others… One system in particular is the labeling done by my better half.
Have you ever received that little something from your partner that makes your day a bit brighter? Sometimes it’s a special event, sometimes it’s a new product, but most of the time (in our case), it’s food – specifically the little snacks. Those make the biggest impact on how my day is going to play out.
As a child, I loved playing video games and remember playing The Lion King as early as age 3 on Super Nintendo. When I was in the double digits, I would come home after school, finish my homework (because the rule was, homework first) and then game until bed. I remember spending entire weekends playing The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong on my N64. Those were the days….
I'm a 20-something woman working my way through life in Canada, traveling when I can afford it and seeking out my passions one day at a time.
