I am seriously addicted to shopping for things online; But, I don't actually purchase anything.
No, I don't need anything, just interested to see what's up, what's new, what's hot, what's not.
I'm just really into that stuff.
No, I'm not in the mood to knit my own sweater or anything like that. I just enjoy wasting all of this VALUABLE TIME in life.
It's actually really sad. Sigh. Hopefully I will get over this bad habit, I'm trying to break it slowly..
I don't have a set budget or anything but I'm definitely not in the mood to buy anything that I don't need.
More recently, in the past few days I have made a game plan to only buy school related supplies (To fuel the stockpot, you know.), quick food (such as veggies and pre-made salads), and "the hang out fund" for socialization.
That's only 3 things, yet I still feel like I am in the hole and owe money to some.. I don't know, cause that isn't for myself.
My family went to Oregon for the weekend and as always, they come back with some frivolous (IMO) purchases such as designer handbags and 5 snapbacks or WHATEVER. I don't really try to keep track of other people's purchases but please remind me why we need all of these things?
I will admit, that if my mother wants some nice handbag, then sure. You can have it. Why? Because you work hard for your money and if "everyone else" has some, then I guess you can too.
My sister on the other hand doesn't seem to do much at all but gets the nicest things and whatever she wants. WELL WTF.
Idk, I mean when she gets older, who knows if she would still be into all of these mainstream materialistic items. My father is concerned of how she's going to make money in the future or even a living for herself as the days go by.. idk how you just, live. Without working hard to your full potential.
Back again to my personal spending.
As I get older (When I say this phrase I make it sound like I am a mature 30 year old or something but I'm really not even near...) I feel like, yes, people will drift away and you need to figure out who are your close friends.. so you know which ones to keep and trust.
I'm venturing into the water a little bit and hanging out with the people I am in close proximity with. Such as the people I work with.
My mother asked me the other day why I am hanging out with people at work now since I have worked there for a long while now and... I had just now began to hang out with them. She asked if they were new or if they were my boyfriend or whatever else she wanted to ask and technically.. No one's really new and no I am not dating nor am I interested in anyone (Everyone has great advice to not date your coworkers.)
It's just that I'm trying to live it up.
A few in the group are trying to.. get me to do things that I haven't done before or.. done much of at all.
Last weekend we had a pizza night! I rarely ever get to eat delivery pizza. Well. I wouldn't say rarely ever but.. I prefer not to. And if I don't need to eat it, then I won't.
But in my honor of not having any for the past 3 years we ordered a ton.. and yeah! It wasn't that bad. I know it was pretty unhealthy but YOLO I guess.
I feel like everyone else ate one whole pizza while I only had 2 pieces. Seriously yes. 2 pieces. No I am not some light eater or anything. I wasn't with a small appetite.
I just didn't feel for it..
Then again, even when I go out to eat at other places I don't really feel for it either.. such as that one pancake trip..
Anyways, living it up with my coworkers.
And I want to have plenty of money just to prepare for situations such as me being lost in another city miles away.
(which is most likely not going to happen but you never know when you get kidnapped)
In general, I'm just trying to burn less money. I think about how much money I make just working where I work and how technically it isn't really much, not much to even fuel my car driving to work since it's so little, right? Yep.
There are people who live paycheck to paycheck for fuel. They don't fill up their tanks until they get their paycheck and.. yeah.
I'm not one because of my huge credit line but I just want to be ready for anything.
My dad keeps telling me to save up money and stop buying junk food.
So far I am one for 2 because... I don't really like junk food anymore.
I know right.
Like, I seriously don't like it. Looking at the ingredients list is absolutely disgusting while.. it doesn't even taste that good. I have opted for my veggie snacking and serious bowls of cereal. I have nearly 3 servings of cereal and usually I eat cereal twice a day and I know that's probably a ton of ingredients that I don't need to be eating but it's so tasty! I love my variety of cereal! I am a little bit concerned about my 10 ish boxes I have left to eat until September (the back to school cereal sale comes along) because I really want to only buy cereal if it's less than a dollar for a box.
Anyways, living it up healthy.
PS, really excited to start yoga with best friend (: Someday soon when we have time!
Oh, and call me crazy but I'm already shopping for sweaters that I don't neeed. I cannot wait for winter sweater season! Eeeeeeeeeps!
And today I have cleaned out a couple of email accounts. What a pain but I feel so relieved.
