Want to know one of the key aspects of my personality? Well, I really like it when I am a newbie who has no idea whatâ€™s going on. I think thatâ€™s why I got so attached to running even though I couldnâ€™t go 1/4 a mile when I started. I relish being inexperienced. Itâ€™s so fun to LEARN something new.
I actually used to be the opposite â€“ not being in control made me freak out. But a few years ago, I decided to embrace my inexperience when confronted with a new situation. It made life much more fun!
Case in point: the new Canon Rebel camera. I have no idea what 1/2 of the buttons on the camera mean (what the heck is ISO?), but itâ€™s so interesting to be clueless! 🙂
I stopped by Colonial Photo and Hobby (recommended by Ryan) to ask them some questions and see if I needed a lens filter (I did) or another lens (I did). The nice man behind the counter told me that they are offering a 3 hour course on Canon Rebels THIS Friday â€“ can you believe my luck? I signed up right away! I wonâ€™t be clueless for long!
After the excitement at the camera store, I went for a walk downtown and played with ReBella. This lovely swan served as my model. 🙂
As did these guys:
They asked me to take a picture of them! Randomly.
Then, it was time for a haircut at Alta Moda salon. If you live in the area, I highly recommend Christine! She tamed my mane. I debated bangs, but I always end up going the safe route.
Thereâ€™s a lovely restaurant right next door to the salon that serves the BEST flatbread pizzas, and I considered dining soloâ€¦ but then I remembered Back on Track Month. One of my goals is to not eat out as much! I came home and made my own version.
I bought flatbread crackers from Costco a while back, but Iâ€™ve been eating them straight from the box instead of actually cooking them. They were SO tasty (I cannot remember the brand name now). I topped them with Classico Sun Dried Tomato Sauce, cheese, and â€˜bella mushrooms.
Plus, steamed Brussel Sprouts:
All together now:
Do you like trying new things or does not knowing what youâ€™re doing make you nervous?
