Life lessons.

You would think that by the age of 20 (aka scary scary adulthood) I would have learned a few basic lessons.. and maybe I have, but apparently I haven't learned not to wear new heels when walking around a lot! After wearing these onto campus - a half hour walk each way - I could safely admit to numb feet and a general air of stupidity brought on by the excitement of new shoes. There was a time when I walked around in heels all day quite frequently, but that was probably two and a bit years ago - pre the flat sandal life of five months travelling in Asia. That didn't stop my brain saying 'oh sure, it'll be fine to wear these for a few hours', which has led me to two life lessons today. Firstly, to always, always, always wear in heels around the house or on short escapades before attempting to trot around in them all day. And secondly, that if it's been a few years since you've done something don't expect to be perfect at it! There's the old adage of never forgetting how to ride a bike, which is true because you won't forget the mechanics, but if you or your body isn't used to what you're about to attempt then think twice.. This applies to anything exercise-related, speaking a language, and even to wearing heels!
