In the fall I'll be going to a college around 5 hours away from my hometown, and since I'm pretty much an only child (my half brother is 18 years older), I've never had to deal with sharing a room with anyone. Because of this, my parents are going to be total sweethearts and pay $700 a month on rent for my apartment, not to mention food, tuition, books, etc. So anyway, for Christmas, among my other presents, my mom gave me a check for $2000 to go towards whatever I wanted. You can imagine my first thought... LV FUND! But, I've decided to be a bit more responsible than that and start a savings account to go towards my apartment so that they won't be obligated to pay for decor, furniture, etc. So I'm on a ban for quite some time, even though I'd already planned on several purchases that I'd been wanting for a while. Just feeling a blue because of it, and felt the need to relieve the stress, haha.
