Yesterday, while waiting in line at Michael’s craft store, I experienced an episode of déjà vu and then quickly realized why: I had spent the previous two weekends also waiting in line at Michael’s craft store. Yesterday, I was buying a dried flower arrangement for my bathroom, the previous Sunday I was buying a dried flower arrangement for my dresser, and the Sunday before that, I was purchasing canvas and crayons so I could make melted crayon art, something that, at the time, felt extremely necessary to my interior décor.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: I need some new hobbies. And frankly, literally every other hobby would be more productive than spending my Sunday afternoons wandering around Michaels! My problem is that I love design blogs and I love crafting, but my interest doesn’t necessarily match my skill level. That doesn’t stop me from trying though!
If only my boyfriend’s name was Michael, so that when I said “I went to Michael’s this weekend,” everyone would think it was some sweet couple thing and not some weird, persistent field trip. ….And if only I had a boyfriend. New hobby???
…Also, I think I need to lay off the dried flower thing, before my apartment starts to resemble a tacky suburban hair salon.
