So Close, Yet So Far.

Being the teenage girl that I am, I constantly text. The problem, however, is that I have 400 text messages per month. Guess how many times I've gone over at least $20? Every month, basically. So to save my parents from the hassle of spending more than the price of unlimited, I did a lot of begging and Mom basically gave in. That is, until she said "I have to discuss this with your dad first." But let's start from the beginning. Mom already agreed to get me a Blackberry Curve, T-Mobile was having a reasonably priced sale (you know Asian mothers can't resist good deals). The sales associate told us that in order to own a Blackberry, one must also purchase unlimited texting. DING DING DING. Unfortunately, mom didn't end up purchasing the Blackberry, or the unlimited texting for me. So, alas, I must wait until my contract actually expires in MAY 2010 to get a new phone, and unlimited texting. For now, I will go over my bill until my parents get the point.

On with shopping news. I've been to the mall basically every other day this week. This being the week before school starts, it makes sense that the parents would allow me to do so. I've probably spent more on OTHER people than myself though. I did manage to buy two pairs of Martin + Osa jeans, socks from Jcrew (I know, socks), a fleece from Eddie Bauer (for band warmth purposes, not stylish at all), and some body lotion from Coach. Here are shots of the only decent things I bought, the jeans.

straight leg & boot-cut

And yes, I did get these hemmed the next day. Being pathetically short, I had to or else I would destroy the bottom of these jeans in a matter of days. The boot-cut is actually a lighter blue-ish gray wash. My terrible phone camera doesn't produce good images. I had to do some editing to even get the pictures to turn out halfway decent.

Keep in mind that rules were actually designed to be shattered, even in relation to picking wines. Just because the "norm" shows you must pair red-colored vino with steak and white colored with fish, poultry or salad, doesn't imply it's that is set in gemstone. Enjoy your food together with your preferred wines, despite who claims they go collectively! [url=]gitutyyt[/url]
