i need one. i know, you all are obsessed with fashion and clothing and accessories and you all are "addicts." i get it. but do you feel a strong need to purchase something daily? like yearn. cuz i do. and i feel like this is kinda a problem. im not broke and im not in insane credit card debt, but its like some part of me has this compulsive side that could really be a problem if it becomes the dominant side. and its totally stuff i dont even need. well i mean, do any of us really need half the shit we own? i feel somewhat guilty for doing this when there are people in the world eating sticks and dirt and living in a shanty made from scrap metal. wow. do i really need to buy destroyed jean shorts or should i use that money to umm i dunno, pay for someone's education for a year?! a year! i am all for enjoying the gifts of hard work and savvy economic choices and i dont believe i hand-outs, but i can admit to being somewhat materialistic. i know i cant take it with me. i'd like to be a UN ambassador and have been involved in humanitarian efforts before, and i think i need to get back into that. heavy.
