Oh my gosh, it feels so good to get paid. I could finally go shopping and buy nonessentials without guilt. I got a little more groceries than usual, too.

I bought an Otter Box Commuter for my phone because my phone badly needed a new case. The other one was aging, and I wanted something sturdy and made to protect against impacts. I thought it would come in handy since I use my phone for work. The only color they had was black. I prefer to express myself with other colors, but lately I have wanted to appear "more professional"* (I am working with only men now), so black it was. I have considered buying stickers to put on the back, though. :D

It just feels weird being able to afford nonessentials again. One store was having a BOGO sale on sandals, and there were some very nice ones that are the kind I'd been wanting to get, but they were $70. But really, I could've gotten two pairs of $70 sandals for the price of one. Not a bad deal. .............Actually, I might have to buy them now. They had my size!!

But I spent a lot today already. Tomorrow I want to go see a movie.

I figured after all that walking around in stores today, I could skip out on exercising. A poor excuse, I know. I can do it tomorrow. Instead, I hung out at the pool for the first time. I didn't spend a lot of time out there because there's no shade until later in the day, and I don't like to sit out in the direct sunlight to tan anymore. Heck, I don't tan at all anymore. I have completely eschewed the tanning fashion for the sake my personal health, and I don't care how white I am. Plus, I didn't put on any sunscreen before I went out, and so I only planned to stay out there about fifteen or twenty minutes. However, it was too cold in the shade to sit, and I thought it wouldn't hurt to sit in the sun for a short bit, like maybe five to ten minutes. I wear board shorts over my bottoms, and I somehow managed to get a very slight tan. :( I could see it in the shower. Crap. No more pool time without sunscreen.


*This is not stopping me from wanting a Hello Kitty license plate frame. So what if I've got one on my Toyota Tercel among the Ford F250s and Dodge Rams in the Forest Service parking lot?
