I just came home from:
a. an appointment with my accountant. I got my tax return done and I have received a surprisingly hefty amount of money for my claim! Yay!
b. spending money by shopping, shopping, shopping! Well, not a lot anyway. I got myself a nice pink knit jumper, an iPod mini armband (to make listening to music while working out easy), food items from the Filipino grocery at the market, hair products, and medicine (for migraine and female problems :p).
I love payday. On top of that, I also received the company's reimbursement for my university fees. I paid the bills, car registration, insurance...
Tomorrow, I want to go to the city to decide if I'm going to get that cute pair of shoes from Steve Madden or that pair from Nine West...
Ah, decisions, decisions...
It's funny how old I feel now. Rewind back a few years, I would have spent the extra money on things I don't really need and I wouldn't have given the bills that needed paying a second thought. Now, I actually paid all my bills FIRST before I bought stuff for myself. Probably the only thing amongst the stuff I bought that could be a luxury item is the pink jumper. Everything else I really needed. Well, I guess if I decide to buy the shoes tomorrow that would be the other.
I have been planning since last month to buy a Burberry bag and wallet. Now that I have the money to pay for it, I couldn't be bothered. In the back of my head, I know that I don't really need it at the moment. Probably later on when I don't have any bills to pay (which is impossible - there is ALWAYS bills to pay).
Money is such an excellent thing when you're younger. When you're older, it sucks big time. So many issues... was it Notorious BIG that said "Mo' money, mo' problems?" Well, he's right.
