Take me to a museum and I shall love you forever

I feel like I live at museums. And I don’t mind one bit.

The thing is, I find museums really calming, especially when I go by myself. I don’t ever feel the need to see everything, but the galleries or exhibits I do visit, I like to engage myself completely in. Everything is so fascinating, from Roman artifacts, to minerals, to beached whales and their MASSIVE  bones. Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been to the Design Exchange Museum, the Textile Museum, the Bata Shoe Museum, the Gardiner Museum, and (countless times) to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). (I also have unofficial plans to go to the Aga Khan Museum and fingers crossed for the Science Centre and the Art Gallery of Ontario).

Someone once said to me, “wow, you must love learning.” Ever since then I realized that, yea, I do. There is something really refreshing and satisfying about knowing something you didn’t know before and being given the chance to explore and expand that knowledge. Just don’t test me on anything 😛
