Today I went to the mall and bought stuff that I don't need at 50% off. It was nice. I came away with a kickass pair of black cargo pants and two fleeces. I generally don't like fleece (in the sense that I think every single person in this whole city is just freaking covered in it from head to toe 24-hours-a-day and I don't want to look like any of them), but they were very soft, and in colors I really wanted, so I gave in. Plus, the other day when I cleaned out my closet I gave away FIVE hefty bags full of clothes to Goodwill, so I feel like there's a void there that has to be filled. Must. Buy. More. Clothes. The cargo pants are so cute and ALMOST make me look like I have an ass. So close, and yet so far away. Plus, I got out of the house for a few hours, which is very important when it's been raining for weeks and you're prone to depression.
I had SO MUCH FUN last night. We went to the Solid Gold dance party and although my feet almost fell off from dancing in my gold high heel sandals (sorta look like these), we just had a great time and I loved the music they played. In fact, we had such a great time that we decided the theme for my birthday party this year is going to be DANCING, with a secondary theme of DOING SHOTS. Although, with the whole "two days of my life gone due to the dirty tequila and sad, sad movie" still fresh in my mind, I think I might take it easy on the shots. Last night I didn't get drunk at all...but not for a lack of trying. I think the drinks were super watered down. In fact, I knew I was totally sober when my friend suggested we call M. at midnight and I went "No, she's on vacation and the time difference is two hours and I just don't think she'd appreciate that." See how that is the voice of a sober, sober girl? Oh well, it was nice to wake up and feel good instead of like death warmed over.
I am in total and complete denial that school starts on Tuesday. Tomorrow I am spending probably three hours getting my hair done (YAY!), and then I have to go buy books. Sigh. I'll probably spend $500 or more tomorrow between those two activities. I'll tell you what, the money is going fast. Thank God I should be getting some money back on taxes this year, it might just save my ass towards the end of the quarter. I mean, how does the government expect me to survive on my law school budget, which TOTALLY doesn't include registering my car, getting highlights, buying new clothes, bar tabs, and a potential trip to see M. for Spring Break. Sheesh.
