I finally did an email inbox clean-out. I figured the new year was a good time to unsubscribe from a million business newsletters. For some reason I have trouble letting go of them even if I haven’t bought anything in years.
I feel like I might miss something or forget they exist if I unsubscribe, but I did it.
I wish that I could apply this to my life as well. Unsubscribe from things and minimalize it.
That being said, I know that you set yourself up for failure if you use the new year to make a lot of changes in your life. It’s weird how that became a thing.
The only resolution/goal that I every stuck with was practising my French every day.
Everything else usually goes in the shitter within a month.
I picked up some trousers from a consignment shop that were significantly marked down for the after Christmas sales.
You can see them here. They are Raey and were really long. A 33″ inseam actually, and I had to do a quick makeshift hemming job in order to wear them. I’ll do a better one later, but it is always something that I have done myself.
Ever since I was a teenager. Taking your clothes to a tailor/seamstress wasn’t something you did in the 90s. At least not anyone that I knew.
The doing it myself stuck and while I know a professional would do a better job, in all honesty I couldn’t be bothered to bring it down to one.
So if I didn’t have any basic sewing skills then there would be a lot of things that I would never be able to wear.
I think it is an important skill to have, and thought it was so stupid when they axed home economics from Ontario schools when I was a teen.
While I am a huge proponent of the arts and keeping the arts in school, I personally would have benefited more from a home ec class, than a music class.
I am not a musician, nor do I have any desire to be.
I was terrible at it and it stressed me out.
Weekly Reads and Some Videos:
The shoe worn by Marie Antoinette on the day of her execution, which is super morbid but interesting. She tripped while climbing the stairs of the guillotine, stepped on the executioner’s feet and lost her shoe. Her feet were teeny tiny too. She wore an EU 33.
Inside the Edwardian Manor That Hosted Alexander McQueen. This was such and interesting and fascinating video.
