I’m pretty busy lately. Not to mention that I am officially fed up with my library. I mean, seriously? I didn’t get into the library website for 3 days, and I find that there’s $18 in fines. (Part of it’s my fault but I want to rant). At my library, if you have more than $10 in fines, then you can’t renew or borrow any material. Oh, and by the way, like the George Washington who has a bunch of money in library fines, I can be charged $400 in library fines before they stop fining me. (40 items X $10 fine cap = $400 total DX) I won’t be using my library for at least a while. I’ll see how I can manage.
I have a job! It’s just as a greeter and cashier, but I like the fact that I can make my own money now. My ideal low-pay job would to be working at a bookstore or grocery store, but I’ll take what I can get. Not that I’m complaining…
I’m also setting up a website for my mom’s new nonprofit organization. Oh, and also setting up a newsletter. So yeah, lots of things to go. I can’t give out the URL publicly for privacy reasons, though. Sorry!
Oh, by the way, if you haven’t already read Valley of the Dolls, go read it. It’s awesome.

Listening to Cosmic World by Alice Nine. (Sentimentality!)
Yep, it’s that time again. That time when I feel like getting things.
Oh, look! I made a list!
- Small personal camera (for Wacky O :))
- Books, books, books
- Clothes (this is way overdue XD)
- Office Supplies (Those of you who know me know that I always want office supplies X) )
- Accessories (Mostly bags. Because you can almost never have too many bags)
- Fabric Paint/Dye
- Button Maker
Okay, okay, maybe I’m just being greedy
On the opposite spectrum: I’m packing my 5th shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. You may have heard of it. They give out Christmas presents to needy children around the world through donated shoeboxes. It’s nice. Look how non-greedy I am!

Hey guys! I’m back! So many things have happened, and I’m still tired even though I came back today. Domestic travel is much less stressful than international travel, though. I’m glad I’m home.
I’m not into (conventional) fashion, but I just discovered Polyvore.com. It’s fun to use, but if you look at the prices on each item, it’s crazy. $700 for a pair of heels? $1100 on a purse? Hate to break it to you, fashion industry, but most of us can’t afford to spend that kind of money on clothes. Personally, I’ll stick to my cheapy but goody clothes. Speaking of which, here are my own personal fashion rules:
Tee’s Fashion Rules & Guidelines
- Why buy when you can make?
- Thrift stores are great places for cheap fabrics.
- Never buy a T-shirt over 10 dollars, unless it’s on discount, or you want to support a cause.
- Don’t buy a tank top for over 10 dollars.
- If a shoe’s made in China, don’t pay over 40 dollars for it. (Depends on the brand)
- If you like an item, don’t buy it immediately. Think if through.
- If you have the time to wade through the clearance section, do so.
- If you have the time to go thrift shopping and to alter those clothes, do so.
- If you have a sewing machine, hem/tailor your clothes yourself.
- It’s best to go shopping alone. Friends and family add fun, but you won’t be influenced by their opinions if you go alone.
- Going sleeveless is better than wearing cap sleeves.
- Capris don’t flatter many people.
Well, that’s it. I’ll expand this later and make it into an article. Have fun shopping, guys. What are your rules on Fashion?
