I'm absolutely a terrible compulsive shopper. Other than being obsessive with clothes, I tend to have some kind of obsession on something where by I buy and buy and buy non-stop until the particular obsession wears off!
It's kinda seasonal obsession whereby it comes and goes but the time is not always the same. When I was in high school, around the age of 16 and 17, my obsession was with CDs! I would buy one every single time I went out! It got so bad until I bought like 1 CD per week! And mind you I'm a student, so spending RM 40 (USD $14) on a CD per week is no easy task! It totally burnt a whole in my pocket.
Right now I have like over 70 over CDs in my room. They are indeed my precious collection, my treasures but I have no idea how to bring them over when I go over to US to study!
And the thing with this obsession is I only listen to the particular CD when I first bought it. After that I just don't listen to them at all. they're precious of coz but they are just there for me to admire. Weird right?
When I finish high school and esp when I just finished getting my chicken pox, my obsession was make-up. I was obsesses in going over magazines, seeing which brand has the best product, going over to the make-up counter asking to try this and that though I have tried it god knows how many times, and spending over hundreds over ringgit in buying all these stuff!!!
And I'm totally a branded person. I rather not use anything than use some over the counter make-up so of coz this obsession totally burnt a hole in my pocket again. And I'm totally not a make-up gal. I was so obsesses about it in the first place was because I got chicky scars all over my face, and my ex-high school galfriend just got back from Australia and she was all made-up! So kinda made me feel.. you know..
Not so confident!
Unfortunately, after spending so much money on make-up, buying foundation, lip gloss, (I assumed you guys can't differentiate them at alL!) blusher.. bla bla and bla.. I don't use a single one of them now! My scars on my face are slowly disappearing and I don't wanna wear make-up now! It feels so hot and bluek!!! Don't like.
So one obsession down the drain agaiN!
Now.. my obsession is with books!!! Yeah.. of all time right? I buy so many books where am I gonna put them? My family is migrating to Vietnam soon and I'm just adding to their rubbish! I can't very well bring them to my university when I get there..
I'm buying 2 to 3 books a week and I'm reading like 1 book 2 weeks! Don't ya think it's a waste of money?
Sigh.. told u it's my obsession!
Do you have an obsession?
