I can feel myself getting happy as I write this. I can’t believe it’s only been three days since my last post. I think back to september, october and november and cringe because I know I barely blogged (can this be used as a verb? I’ll say yes.) I wanted to do a review on the December 2013 ipsy but it hasn’t arrived. So I’ll just write about the next best thing: empyting my closet.
It’s been a long time since I’ve used eBay to sell stuff but after realizing that I don’t wear most of the clothes I have, I came to the conclusion that making space in my closet wasn’t such a bad idea. I’m used to opening it and grabbing one of the first things I see. Today I forced myself to look through everything and laughed when I found shirts I bought for school and sadly forgot they existed because the were hiding in parts of my closet I don’t normally check. Oh well, I guess I won’t have to shop for next semester! The thing is, I enjoy looking like crap at the university. Walking each day with a Superman backpack rubbing against my back is not easy, especially when I get to the apartment to find that the back of my shirt has pilled. (Is that even a word? Let’s say yes again.) So, cheap t-shirts are a must. Tip: Get men’s shirts. They are way cheaper and you can customize them with your handy-dandy scissors.
After making a few pyramids of clothing, I had to do what I hate the most: take pictures and make the eBay listings. Seriously, this process takes up to an entire afternoon. Between shots, I found myself trying on what I thought I was going to sell and tried to convince myself that the perfect ocassion to wear that poofy, tutu looking skirt, those leather shorts and that green corset would come. Who was I kidding? Of course it wouldn’t. I got a little dissapointed in myself when I saw so many tags. A lot of the things were new. Most of them purchased online because I loathe going to the mall. After this experience, I’ll definately limit my online shopping.
I felt the need to sell, frankly, because I desperately need the money. There’s a study trip to Paris next semester and I already paid the deposit. I know myself and if I don’t do it now, I’ll never get a picture taken with the Eiffel Tower in the background. I thought about using my Student Aid to help pay for it, but that won’t happen because of an error in my application. I also made an account on GoFundMe after a friend of mine quickly got financial help to go to Egypt. So far, I have $40… And 5 of those dollars are mine. I didn’t think about how social he was. I, on the other hand, am not. I’m holding on to the one friend I made in elementary school, who’s also going to Paris. (At least, we hope we get to go.)
After writing this wannabe sob story, I welcome you to check out my eBay listings and if you feel extra genereous, I will infinitely appreciate a donation on my GoFundMe page. It would mean the world to me.
I sign off with a wire hanger poking my butt and a plastic one stabbing me in the back. Sacrifice is painful. 🙂
Merry Christmas and may your wishes come true!
