I should get an award...

...for helping out our nation's economy!

I am so stressed out right now, people. I know I haven't updated my blog in forever, I haven't made any videos in a really long time, and I also haven't completed my graduate school application. It's funny how I always think I have more time than I actually have. Before spring break, I was like "Pfft, I have 10 days to do my homework and finish my admission essay. I will just relax a bit." Now, 10 days later, I've done NOTHING. My application is due on the 28th, and I have 4 group meetings this week, 2 presentations, and a term paper due. I'm officially screwed. Bye bye my semi-decent GPA! It was nice knowing ya!

Now, under these stressful circumstances, normal people would forgo the luxury hobbies like YT and blog to focus on studying and such, but not me. I've been doing catch up on YT vids all day (FUZ! I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU!! You made me an addict!) and updating my blog. Also....I hauled like a mad man online recently. I think I will wait til I received the packages to do a collective haul post.

However, I did a little calculation on how much I spend in the past week on beauty related products...The grand total? $525.35!!!

I think it's time to chop my fingers off. I think I'm going on CT (cold turkey) til I graduate (5/2/09). Yes, I'm even skipping all MAC collections, even if they include MSFs that I'm drooling after. I MUST RESIST! I will NOT, repeat, WILL NOT spend $27 on a MSF when they used to cost $24! MAC is getting greedy! I skipped HK collection all together (OMGWTFBBQ!! shock horror!), and I'm planning on skipping Sugarsweets and grand duos. I'm doing very well so far. Even those delicious swatches on Specktra didn't tempt me. I think I'm over MAC....*iz prepared for the massive stones that are aiming towards me by fellow beauty bloggers* But seriously though, after spending thousands of $$ on MAC products, I don't get its appeal anymore. All the colors are very similar with different names, and the prices are getting ridiculus! I'm not spending $15 on a 1.5g e/s, thank you very much.

Anyway, I have to get back to my case analysis for P.F. Chang's. I promise I will do a video after Thursday! I promise!!

Peace out!
Tao

P. S. On a side note, some subscribers are kinda rude when making requests...I don't HAVE to do anything, stop making it sound like I owe it to you to make a requested video. I'm more likely to do a request when you put "please" and "thank you" in the request, instead of "you have to" and "I'm waiting for a ..." I reckon that I'm one of the nicer YT-er, I try to answer every message I get and read all the comments. So please, try to be nice and polite when making requests. They are more likely to be answered.

P.P.S. Getting recommendation letters is a BITCH! I wish I knew where my manager from MAC went, she's not there anymore... =( I need 4 recommendations, and so far I've only got 2. I'm REALLY tempted to just make up someone to add as a recommender. LOL!

P.P.P.S. I havn't worked out in like 1 week. I can FEEL my muscles get jiggly again. AFTER THURSDAY!!!!

LOL, sorry to get you addicted! But boy it's an honor that you're addicted to my YT! xD You're too sweet!

Wow over 500! I can't wait to see what you got! I don't even want to calculate how much I spent this past weekend.. well I have already but I won't be publishing that, hahaha.

Good luck on your papers and stuff!! <3

MiuMiu said...

wow..that's a pretty massive haul hehe..can't wait to see it all =D
i agree with getting the letters..my ex managers are so lazy that I have to write it and then they sign it. but it's way better than having them write crap lol. maybe you could just write one and ask someone to sign it too!

i know what you mean by spending a lot on money on MAC lol. They are particularly evil because always release LE consecutively. It's more like the novelty factor more than anything! I have definitely become more selective the more i've come to know how MAC works!

wahh $500 cant wait to see!

izumi said...

i like MAC but.. you know. there's so many dupes out there with just less pretty packaging. i'm trying to find as many dupes as i can, because.. it just makes more sense to my wallet, haha. sounds like a massive haul :) can't wait for your update! and good luck with getting letters of rec! i remember doing that in high school, it SUCKED!

Askmewhats said...

*hugs* I know what you mean about those requests that they sound like your "boss", its like they pay you to do reviews! gosh!!!

Anyways hugs to you and I hope you get back to your workout soon, it does relieve stress, but do not force yourself to work out if you're tired ok? *hugs*
