    Patricia

    Majority of my friends call me Trish, I guess you could call me that too. I'm a transcriptions editor with a really messed up body clock and never ending affinity for films, food and written words. I like street art, sweets, neutrals and monochromes, sushi, window seats, golf carts and lazy weekends.

    Some of the things that completely preoccupy me are my fixation with the now defunct The Civil Wars and their beautiful art of sadness, Oh Sehun, sleeping, CSS and HTML, @iameden, and those damn hypnotizing Tasty videos. Top country in my travel bucketlist? Iceland. But the one that will always have my heart? Hong Kong.

    Patricia The Spender


    We all know that during December, we all got extra money because of the different bonuses (Christmas bonus, 13th month pay and/or annual tax refund). I told myself I'm gonna save money this time around so I can pursue the Web Design course next year but it seems the universe conspires once again, and now I am powerless over the things I spent my money on. I could just slap myself hard on the face for all the unnecessary purchases I made, a couple of thousand pesos could've been saved. But oh well, the damage has already been done.

    Here's the list of the things I shouldn't have bought but sadly, I gave in and I did:

    1. A new pair of Chuck Taylors (Degree of needlessness: 1/5)


    Well, maybe I've been meaning to buy a new pair but definitely not now. When I went to the Converse sale, I thought I could avail a pair for around PhP700. Lol. Yes, I was expecting that much discount. I'm only half guilty for purchasing the shoes because in the long run, I know I will need this.

    2. Fuji Instax Cheki Mini 20 (Degree of needlessness: 3/5)


    I love anything instant, that's what I say over and over. I have no plans whatsoever of acquiring this analog camera until I came across a certain post in Tumblr. And the impulsiveness washed over me, after a few minutes of finding this is Ebay, I clicked 'Buy Now'. I was thinking now on how I shouldn't have bought this but paying around PhP3,000 for a package that includes the camera, 2 batteries, snap on close-up lens and 8 films seems like such a good deal that I, unfortunately, didn't resist.


    3. My own domain name (Degree of needlessness: 4.5/5)


    If you're paying attention (or if anybody out there is paying attention), you would see that my personal blog is now under http://www.leftoverjinx.com! I bought the domain name just this morning and felt like an ultimate newbie when I was having a hard time redirecting my domain name to this blogspot account. Thank you so much, Google. So the scenario was like this: I thought of trying to pay through my debit card, I thought it wouldn't push through. But it did. Hahaha!

    4. A kilo of chocolate truffles and 4 cans of Spam (Degree of needlessness: 5/5)

    I absolutely love Spam and chocolates but I had no intention of buying these until we went to SNR yesterday together with our Operations Manager. Once exposed to the temptation, I can't help but give in. And that sounds so gluttonous, right? I keep thinking that what I spent here could've covered for my bill in Globe. Lol.

    Or maybe, I do not really regret buying these stuff because I like them all. It was more of the timing when I bought these things. They were not a part of my To Buy list for December. Lol.

    This would be the last. I promise.
