Is there a particular outfit/article of clothing/accessory you like on yourself? Why or why not?
Do you have an activity that makes you feel alive and good within yourself?
There is definitely some repetition going on here. I already talked about how new clothes make me feel good and I posted a pic of the shirt I currently like, so I’m going to try to come up with something different here. I like when I get a chance to wear my Steampunk jewelry. What is Steampunk? It’s basically Victorian science fiction. It’s a combination of the classy and frilly from the Victorian era with the mechanical, bad ass, futuristic cyborg type stuff. I like wearing this stuff because it’s unique. Since I’m shy, starting small talk is often difficult and anxiety-provoking. When at conferences I try to wear something steampunk because it’s a conversation starter. Someone always asks about it and once I get talking, I focus on the conversation and I’m ok.
As for an activity that makes me feel good…..I’m not sure. Hiking maybe? There are aspects I don’t like about it….like the bugs, bug spray, sunscreen, sweat and lack of bathrooms, but I’m outside and it’s good exercise. Getting exercise makes me feel good because I know I am doing something good for myself. The problem is, most exercise is torture, or just feels like a real chore. Hiking is neither. It’s nice to be outside, away from the city and crowds of people. It also brings back good memories. The hiking I’ve done has usually been while I’m on vacation, so times of less stress. Also, Hubby and I got engaged on a hiking trip. This is the card Hubby gave me on our hiking trip. I thought it was cute, he really REALLY likes french fries.
