can you tell that I’m procrastinating?

Term paper deadlines are looming. And a lot of assignments are due soon. And I have a test next week.

…so I decided to go to the mall. 8V

  • Made a beeline to Wal-Mart’s video game section. Didn’t find anything interesting.
  • Smoothly transitioned from the video games section to the children’s trading card games section. |Db
  • Checked out the cosmetics section while hugging onto my LC2 for dear life.
  • L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadows were on sale. Decided to grab an “all night blue” since I like the “burning black” I recently bought. (Those pictures don’t do the colors justice.)
  • Left Wal-Mart with a considerably lighter wallet. OTL
  • Went to EB Games to pre-order Tales of Graces f. The cashier spelled my name (Lily Omidi) “Lilly Omidie”… heh, the receipt looks so derpy. I spelled out my last name four times for her… mmm. 8V It’ll cost ~$68 with tax… I really hope I love the game, because there’s no way in hell I’d be able to resell it for anywhere near that much. Curse EB Games/Gamestop for their pre-order incentives!
  • Next order of business: bookstore!
  • jhgasdjkl they were having a ‘buy 3 get 1 free’ promotion. I still have like 20+ brand new books that I bought in the past few years and haven’t cracked open but my iRewards card expires at the end of the month, and I still had a $25 gift card, and this promotion is irresistible…  so. *w*
  • It took a lot of willpower not to grab 4 manga.
  • …a lot.
  • Especially those Black Edition Death Note volumes.
  • God, those things are gorgeous.
  • And Sailor Moon hnnnnngh SO TEMPTING. But I’ll probably just pick those up at the next anime con I go to, so… self-control!
  • Grabbed BZRK immediately. MICHAEL GRANT. Need I say more?
  • Had a hard time deciding on the other 3 books. Finally settled on;

the latest additions to my ever-growing library! ♥

  • Delirium; for the sake of keeping up on YA trends. It’s often name-dropped and I finally caved in.
  • Divergent; ditto. Except this seems more like my kind of book.
  • And I guess I can’t avoid The Hunger Games for much longer. Last year, I bought it, but changed my mind about wanting to read it and promptly returned it. :d
  • Sad fact: 3/4 of these books are in present tense. (SOB ILU MICHAEL GRANT) I knew what I was getting myself into since I checked the books (and it’s the reason I adamantly avoided THG) but the reality is still incredibly depressing… brb killing myself
  • With the iRewards & ‘get 4th free’ promotion, the total came up to $38.78 (including a 5 cent bag, bwahaha)
  • …minus the $25 of my gift card. \m/
  • Hefty discounts and gift card aside, it felt good to only hand over $13.78 for 4 quality new books. The hardcover BZRK itself has a cover price of $19.99 CAD.
  • Grabbed a celebratory Oreo cheesecake Blizzard. You know, to congratulate myself for having blown so much money instead of doing any schoolwork.

Aaand now I’m setting my alarm clock for a few hours earlier than usual because I need to scribble up an assignment for tomorrow morning’s Social Statistics and Data Analysis (a.k.a. math… motherfracking MATH! >:U /foams at mouth) class. o3o

  1. Yay for getting Tales of Graces! Did you start playing it? I’m already at the end of the main arc but haven’t gotten to the final boss yet ;P

    • I’ve started it, but ahh, I’m buying more PS3 games than playing them… XD; I bought the sequels to FFXIII and Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm before playing the games themselves… >>;

      I probably won’t get to properly play Graces f for a long time… but it looks like a great game, and I can’t wait to tackle it! *^*
