RE: MY GOD-*BLESSED* HIPPIE-HEART ;0P
Oh journal! I can’t believe it’s a new year! It’s crazy! But what’s really crazy is that I am the new proud owner of my very own beautiful guitar. That’s right! I ain’t lyin’!
Now, it was a $600 guitar and I got it for $400, including a hard-case and a second set of strings. And she’s got a built-in tuner and everything! She’s such a beauty too it’s hard to believe! So now all that’s left is to learn how to play her so I can sing and play my husband/family/guests a song in my lacy off-white strapless wedding gown with a ribbon (a satin ribbon) wrapped around my torso! So very exciting!
So then my only worry this month is how much damn money I am costing my parents. Let’s do a tally…
$110 —Parking pass for school
$420 —Victoria’s Secret clothing
$ ?? —Groceries/Toiletries
Ugh! They’re going to kill me! But at least I will be a well-dressed beautiful guitar-playing hippie (at heart) lawyer one day. They’ll be so proud! And all for the bargain price of hah! Prolly about a million dollars!
But really, I am sending them $200 now for the guitar and I am sending them a grand for all else at the end of the month when I get my loan money. So see! It’s not so bad! And I don’t even have all those books to buy this semester hoorah! I do wonder if I have new books for any of my four classes that are continuing on through spring. I can’t wait till I get to pick my own classes! Boot camp is half way over Miss Maris! You can do it!
