I got my first pair of sweatpants at the age of nine.
They were very light and fluffy, and my father bought me two pairs for Christmas when I was 10.
When I was 15, I got another pair.
I’m still not sure how I got to buy two pairs.
My first pair was made in Japan.
There was a very strong feeling of belonging and pride, and a very different feeling of being a foreigner in Japan at the time.
A Japanese friend of mine introduced me to the word “sweat”.
The word “Sweat” was an extremely important word to me growing up.
It was the first thing I knew.
Sweat was the one word that felt right to me.
“What is this?
Is it my hair?”
I thought, “Oh, it’s my sweat.
Do you think that’s cool?
I want to be a Japanese girl.”
I wanted to feel special.
The moment that I started wearing sweatpants, I was like, “Wow!
I just feel special.”
And that’s how I felt, and I feel very, very special now.
So now I have two pairs of sweat pants that I wear to work, and two pairs I wear at home.
One day I’m going to have to wear sweatpants every day.
That will probably happen.
What I want to do now is give back.
How much can I give?
Well, I’ve been wearing sweat pants for about five years now.
I’ve worn them for a couple of years, but now I’m starting to wear them more.
If you’re like me, you probably think that it’s impossible to give back in this day and age.
And to you, I say: I’m sure you can.
You have so many opportunities that you can take advantage of, and there’s so much opportunity out there.
