I have been having the most unsettling dreams lately, which is really surprising, considering I barely ever remember my dreams. Last night I dreamt that a family member gave me $200, I put it in my bag, and then my bag was stolen while on public transit! The bus driver was a real asshole and wouldn’t stop to wait for my friend, and wouldn’t tell me where the bus was going. I was all alone, yelling at the bus driver, and the other passengers were looking at me like I was the ‘crazy lady’ on the bus that just wouldn’t sit down. Along with the money, the theif stole my identity, and for some reason I was hesitating about cancelling my credit card, thinking that it would take so long to get a new one. I woke up freaking out, yet again.
I don’t know what’s going on. It’s probably me just being stressed out about finding a job and having income. All I can think about is V.V. Boutique… nowwww. But I can’t, because I have no money. Even if I was to go window shopping, it’ll still make me upset because I won’t be able to get anything. Frustratinggg! I feel like my pockets are burning but I have no money.
Seriously. Every time I go to Value Village I find something to bring home. It is fantastic! I just don’t understand the people that go shopping for brand new stuff. It’s just not that great! That, and whenever I go shopping there I always manage to find something that nobody else will have, and can put together amazingly cute outfits!’
Note to self: Explore V.V. Boutique on 49th and Victoria, and Salvation Army on 3rd and Lonsdale, North Vancouver.
Things I want to do with my first paycheque (ideally):
- Go to Value Village and raid the shit out of their Shoes, Skirts, Sweaters/Cardigan, and Accessories sections.
- Find a winter jacket that is not falling apart and is actually warm
- Get a ball for Charles the Rat to run around in from Petcetera
- Make the yummiest pasta salad dinner for me and my lovely roomie
In the meantime, my goal for today is to print and distribute 10-15 resumes along the Drive today, in between coffee with Josie and trying not to buy anything.
