mom and i went to the christmas bazaar at the world trade center this afternoon. she bought nothing. it just goes to show how my mom can be such a shopaholic but, well, she really doesn't follow through. she was looking for pashminas (which, i think, is obscure, as pashminas had gone out of style, what, a year ago?) that cost somewhere around 200-300 bucks. heck, that's even cheaper than prepaid.
i think i've told joy some time ago: anything cheaper than prepaid is cheap.
which i think is pretty accurate. i base my accounts on 300s these days. i go over that and i go on guilty mode. considering i spend a max of 100, i suppose it's a pretty good deal. lately i've been saving 1/3 of my allowance money just so i could have cash for christmas presents (and to pay off some debts). basically, if you know me from kidhood, that's scary. i almost never give presents out. i'm not a generous kid-- most times i define myself as being considerably selfish. i save money for my own purposes and stuff. i think i call it self-sufficiency. living alone for ten years does that to you.
i suppose this 'coming-of-age' is result of, well, trying to grow up. i've lived my life too far and too long as a little kid; hence the sakura phase. today, as i went home from the dentist, i actually pondered on the thought that maybe i ought to act like a girl instead of a child, and a woman instead of a girl.
i grew up too fast, regressed, and am now trying to grow up the right way.
oh, and a funny thing i heard on radio this afternoon, in my mom's car:
a guy: world peace!
a guy: magkano ba yang world peace na yan?
will you catch me when I fall? :: |
