So what may you ask sparked this post? I'll tell ya. The fact that I spent pretty darn close to $200 today. Yep... I know right. I will not shop again all summer. And for probably the first half of the school year. O.O I have no self control!!!! Though I spent an insane amount of money in less than 8 hours, I'm still rather happy. Kind of... until I think about my bank account that is. Then I just want to cry. I keep telling myself to GET OVER IT there's no returning them, but god it just physically hurts me.
Soooo want to hear what I got? This will cheer me up if I get to share so bare with me. :) So I'm a senior this year (next year???) Anyway when school starts I'll be a senior. Yay! Woot! Hurrah! I have two actual "classes" and only one of them is not a joke. The rest of my day is filled with art. How wonderful is that?! You have no idea how excited I am for it! Not so wonderful thing about being a senior? SENIOR PICTURES! *screams* I hadn't even given a thought to it. Just kind of threw out vague ideas for where I would get them done. I'll tell you one thing. Buying senior picture outfits SUCKS. Eighty something dollars! EIGHTY! Though what I got was all really pretty, damn was it expensive. Maurices... I love and hate you. It's all sooo pretty and so my style but why does a tank top have to be $20?! Ugh! Curses! I don't think I'll be able to find pictures but I'll just describe what I got.
- cream crinkle tank top with lace
-burnt orange see through short sleeve shirt
-dark brown sleeveless vest (one of those cool flowy ones that are kind long?)
-cream short sleeve v-neck shirt
-2 cute necklaces to go with
The first three all go together as my "outfit" and I just need to find a decent pair of jeans that I haven't gotten holes in, or completely shredded the bottom. I told my mom she's buying me jeans and shoes. I refuse to spend any more money on clothing. Hell I don't even think I've willingly bought clothing for myself in over 6 months! *cringes*
For some reason I went on a complete movie binge. I bought five movies! I don't know what possibly could have possessed me. Maybe it was boredom around eight o'clock in the morning when NOTHING was open except for Walmart and Hyvee...
-Alice in Wonderland
-Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
I know you all are just sitting there going "What the hell?! She didn't buy books?!" OH believe me. I did not disappoint. XD I bought:
Thanks again for the recomendation Nikki I'm glad I picked this up today! I'm already falling in love with it and I haven't even started reading it yet! And ZOMG! Look at the amazing international cover for it!!!!! I'm drooling over it. No joke. I could just kiss whoever designed that!!! Is that Greek? I honestly have no idea, oh well, it's all Greek to me! (Okay lame joke I know) *drools some more* God I cannot get over how GORGEOUS that is!
I randomly picked this off the shelf because frankly I thought the cover was pretty. I know, I know. I'm horrible but I have an artist's eye through and through. I cannot help it!
-Nightwatch by Sergei Lukyanenko Set in modern day Moscow, Night Watch is a world as elaborate and imaginative as Tolkien or the best Asimov. Living among us are the "Others," an ancient race of humans with supernatural powers who swear allegiance to either the Dark or the Light. A thousand-year treaty has maintained the balance of power, and the two sides coexist in an uneasy truce. But an ancient prophecy decrees that one supreme "Other" will rise up and tip the balance, plunging the world into a catastrophic war between the Dark and the Light. When a young boy with extraordinary powers emerges, fulfilling the first half of the prophecy, will the forces of the Light be able to keep the Dark from corrupting the boy and destroying the world?
How does that not sound absolutely unbelievably amazing?! I'm drooling already. Ugh why do I have so many books to read?!
So that pretty much wraps up my spending today. Wow. I just got re-terrified again. Darn it! I was finally over it! Grrr. Okay moving onto happier things!!!! So I've been buying a lot of books lately. And well I got a lot from NetGalley as well. XD I feel so happy!!! So I thought I'd share you my book haul both virtual and physical.
