Diane’s Selection: An Online Shopping Special

16 May

My friends and I were supposed to go out tonight but being the lazy bums that we are, we decided to cancel on each other. Heehee.

Hence, I have hours of free time. I decided to go on the internet. Being the loco shopaholic that I am, I ended up online shopping. Yes, online shopping, again. Shoes, bags, cosmetics, even puppies, for god’s sake.

Right now, I have one, two, three, four, five…. forty-three tabs open. Forty three.

FORTY. THREE.

Forty three tabs of shoes, cosmetics, clothes, bags and puppies that I all want. And I’ve already closed dozens of tabs that I deemed unfit. So that’s like the things that already went through Charles Darwin’s Natural Selection. Well, in this case, Diane’s Selection.

I mean come on. When you go online shopping, there must be a limit of acceptable things that are in the ‘want pile.’ Right? And I highly doubt forty-three is acceptable. So, as much as I regret to say this, I must cut back with this habit of mine. I mean for the past two weeks alone, I’ve already bought (for my discretion, and because you all might think I’m as crazy shopaholic as Rebecca Bloomwood, ) let’s just say that she’s a much bigger shopaholic than I am. And I’m not even close to becoming her. So relax, okay?

It’s just hard to shop for decent things in Tacloban. If there are decent enough things, emphasis on the if, it’s not worth buying anymore because everybody will have them. Equals, mainstream. And I am not in the mood to be on the ‘Who wore it better?’ section of the gossip. That’s why I just buy them all online or when I travel.

Yes, I know. Those were just rationalizations trying to justify my behavior. Nevertheless, I seriously am going to try cutting back.

Between my monstrous eating habits and going out with my friends, my allowance can’t really sustain the additional shopping expenses anymore. Well it could, but that would mean I’m just going to have to survive ¬†eating a biscuit every meal. And that, I surely cannot survive.

I can’t just cut myself off right away though. I’m afraid that if I do that I might go into withdrawal. Yes, I am seriously comparing this to addiction.

Therefore, I am going to limit myself to the maximum of TWO purchases in a month. Yes, that is cutting back in my standards.

But then again that’s another rationalization.
