This weeks activity definitely had me out of my comfort zone. As the activity was explained to us in class, I began to feel self conscious even thinking about having to dress out of my ordinary style. I’m someone who is really into fashion and the way I look, so this was a little bit of a challenge for me. My ordinary style really has nothing to do with my wardrobe, so I knew I was going to try an identity of someone way more detectable to a strayer. Friday morning as I woke up, I already had in mind what I wanted to wear for the activity. When I was ready to go out I was all decked out in business attire. I had on slacks, heels, and a suit jacket.
I went to a mall to do the activity, and I asked 5 people what they thought I was interested in and what my major was in college. Four out of the five said Business without any hesitation. The other person asked me if I was in law school. Both really good guesses but I was going for business. I surprisingly felt more comfortable in the outfit than I thought I would be. I was so comfortable I ended up wearing it for the rest of the day without the suit jacket and I actually had a lot of fun. So overall, this week I enjoyed our activity and was surprised by how easily it got me a bit out of my box.
