this is Day 1. i have decided to give up shopping. any money i get i am sticking in a stashbox in hopes that sometime before next fall i will have enough to go to New York City. and i am going alone if that is what it comes down to, because everyone so far sucks. so far this has not been easy. i hadn’t even been awake for a full hour and already almost ended up going to Sherway, where i’d inevitably end up in Aritzia searching for that damn teal shirt. and i know i would buy, given how many stores i’ve already been to looking for that damn shirt.
in short: i don’t know how long i am going to last not shopping. writing about it is certainly not helping. i thought it would keep me busy and distracted… but instead i want it more.
