exactly how weird lol

I'm obsessed with waxing, I get randomly excited to wax when I have more important stuff to do - not a hobby, but it was the first thing that popped into my mind ahaha

I write poetry sometimes, I also love making clothes, and I plan on developing that a bit more (esp if we go into lockdown next winter)



When I was younger I used to collect sugar packets and rocks (not valuable ones, just rocks :P).

I have an excessive amount of oracle cards lol. Not a weird hobby per se but a little outside the mainstream. And the shear amount of cards I have is truly astounding

I garden (tomatoes, basil, thyme, and chives) , I brew kombucha (my mom did it growing up), my partner and I do meals on wheels, and I collect/use antique appliances (newest is a 1938 Hamilton Beach mixer I got for $15 at a Goodwill), and I can my own tomatoes from my garden for sauce.

I've turned very granola crunchy like my mom on accident lol

My current challenge: International Dance Day challenge for Thursday, April 29, 2021. My goal is to have a more flexible and graceful ballet type of body during the winter time and possible 2nd Covid-19 lockdown in the United States. Also, I will be incorporating run/walking outdoors as well as much as I can as long as it isn't extreme freezing and snowy weather.

 

Diet plan:  I don't want to focus on any particular diet at the moment, but I know for sure I will mostly eat two meals a day, because that is all my body wants: breakfast and a late lunch/early dinner. Also I attempt to eat nothing but whole, non-processed foods. I will make an effort to cook and bake more, which will force me to only eat from home mostly. Also, carry flavored water and a little bag of mix nuts to consume when away from home in order to avoid fast food places. 

 

The link is here: https://www.myproana...etc/?p=73534693

 

This is my REALISTIC ideal body type, from being morbidly obese, for International Dance Day, on Thursday, April 29, 2021 (5 months challenge): Basically, I have no choice to but to be thick in the hips and thighs, but I want to get rid of my protruding, hanging belly in order to look like this girl. Once I reach this body type goal, then I find another body type I can try to attain.

I used to collect beer mats, bottle tops, postcards and letters. I have quite a big stationary collection too. Just lots and lots of different papers, memo pads, notebooks and stickers which I will probably never get around to using.

i am obsessed with selling my “fat” clothes on poshmark and mercari rn. seeing my clutter turn into money is high-key addicting for me, and plus, i’m hoping i won’t need those clothes anymore
i love cosplay too! however yea i feel like i have to be skinny to even feel confident enough to buy anything though lmao. might invest in some good accessories once i finish selling all my other junk.

I'm really into card games now. I've been collecting pokemon and yugioh cards and I taught my mom how to play. I also taught my bf how to play and now he's into yugioh cards. I'm itching for my local card shop to start holding events again (not happening for now because of covid) so I can meet and play with new people.

So, I call my mom 'Moo'. She was raised on a dairy farm so I grew up with cow+chicken decor around our house, and eventually the nickname 'Moo' stuck and I've called her that ever since haha

i have a bit of an over the top nail polish collection, i go searching for specific colours and love hunting them down at obscure beauty stores and clothing/accessory stores in malls.

 

I also collect political buttons. My BF does too, between the 2 of us we must have over 100 buttons from elections goin back to the 60s till today. I have some really cool misprinted buttons, where they made 10 or so, realized there was a typo and then re-did them. I've also found a bunch of hilarious knock off buttons that mock politicians and policies.  most of mine are Canadian politics. He has s bunch of old american presidential election buttons, and some really old ones. combined its a pretty impressive collection

I like collecting a wide variety of vintage stuff. I collect dolls, books, clothing, knick knacks, and makeup (just for decoration), all from the 60's and before.

 

I also have a lot of oddly specific things I collect. I collect angel figurines, crosses and rosaries (only if they don't have Jesus on them, because seeing a crucified man doesn't exactly bring me joy), teddy bears and stuffed sloths, horror movie and rock band tee shirts, and differently published editions of Alice in Wonderland.

 

Yeah, with all my collected things combined my room is a mess and when I get my own apartment it will just get worse. One thing that I think most collectors of things can agree on is thrift stores are the greatest thing in history.


Sweet mary jane, you're quite insane, and all you ever want to be, is like the other girls you see.

A weird thing I collect are razor blades... I don't even use them anymore, it's just sort of... Aesthetic to me? idk

I also collect stickers, envelopes, stuffed animals... And shells/rocks from the ocean! I like the different rock textures and it helps me to calm down a lot!  :P
