Too Much Too Little

I just spent 3 hours debating whether or not to buy this gorgeous dress I saw online. Ok, maybe it isn’t gorgeous, but it does look pretty, and I haven’t purchased a new dress in like forever. The old me would have bought it without a single ounce of hesitation, considering the fact that is costs less than $30SGD, which in my opinion is fairly reasonable a price. Yet now I cannot bring myself to buy the dress! My expenditure has been outrageous recently, despite the generous ang paos┬áhanded to me over the new year. My bank account is bordering empty and I haven’t even been shopping much! I put the blame on the temptations of private transportation, and my unhealthy addiction to travelling in cabs. Yes, from today onwards I will try my best to stay away from those money suckers and hopefully I will stop bleeding from my pockets.

I have also realised that my loath for sunlight (or UV rays) have become baneful. I think many of my friends would triumphantly shout “I told you so!” since the lengths I go to evading Mr Sunshine have provided an interesting source of entertainment for them. Besides the daily application of SPF 130 sunblock and the propping of a brolly when exposed to the great unshaded territories, I now also feel the urge to stay indoors all the time when the sun is out. That is also why I jog at night – because there is no sun! My mother has also begun to notice my conscientious effort in trying to hide from the sun. I think I need to find the vampire coven, I’m sure I am part vampire…well at least the part where they go up in a puff of smoke in the sun, thus explaining my antagonistic attitude towards light.

Totally random, but there’s a mosquito bite on my neck. And a sudden thought that pretentious girls are all kinds of nauseating. I wonder why the boys are completely unaware and unable to detect the pungent smell of grandiloquence. Perhaps they lack a certain radar which has been cleverly overwritten by their inexplicable attraction to batting eyelashes and high pitched voices.
