I can remember learning about psychometric testing back in third year psychology. I found it fascinating how individual traits and attributes could be mapped out and elicited through certain questions and objective analysis. I can also remember feeling quite chuffed (in an embarrassingly egotistical way) when my 'extroversion / introversion' questionnaire revealed me to be the most extreme extrovert out of my entire tute group - yikes!
Thankfully my tendency for extroversion has slowly sedated over the past decade and I now find myself appreciating life as a more even keeled ambivert, relishing the rejuvenation of alone time.
As a child of the 80’s I was very enamoured with Star Wars!
From running around with my cousins cloaked in brown towels (as only befits a young Jedi padawan), to telling people that the correct pronunciation of my middle name (Leah) was actually ‘Leia’ - I think it is safe to say that I was fairly besotted with all things from that mystical Galaxy, far, far, away.
P.s. don’t even get me started on Luke’s dreamy pair of blues!
Fast forward to my twenties, during my yoga teacher training in the mountains of Quebec (a chapter I now fondly call ‘my month in pyjamas’ due to our compulsory, modest yogic garb - see pic) where my love and awe for all things Star Wars began to resurface.
