It’s literally just a few days shy from Christmas and I’m darn sure that the gifts are slowly starting to pile up. If you’re like me, then you’ve most likely opened each and every one. As a child, I’ve always been impatient and I hate surprises, so waiting for Christmas eve back then was like torture. Now that I’m old enough, I no longer have parents admonishing me for being impatient so I open at will.
This year’s Christmas is a slight bit more different than my previous ones: I went through an ordeal that I would probably not wish on anyone (save for the offenders, I would wish it on them a thousand times and over). I apologize, don’t mind me, I’m still in the process of “getting over” things. However, for someone hypothetically “suffering”, I think I’m doing a pretty good job as I’m still in the spirit of giving rather than being a type A grinch.
So anyway, for Christmas, I asked a few of my fashionable friends for options they’d like to receive. A handful of them gave me one answer: “Fur”–be it a hat, a vest, a coat, or whatever. I jokingly told the rest of those I haven’t asked to lay off the fur lest I have PETA running after my ass.
I think, perhaps, this is a turning point for Winter 2010–my good friend and I have been talking about how we are so uninspired for Winter 2010 because there isn’t really that much to look forward to when you shop; I mean, has anyone been to the high street stores for winter? Everything looks drab. Now, with the arrival of fur, people can practically have a little bit of fun. Here’s my take (and maybe, if you want to give someone some awesome fur items, check out Forever 21’s selection–like I did–or opt to give them a gift card):

People had asked me what I want for Christmas. Two weeks ago, I had a long-ass list of trivial things. Now, I’ve decided to push all those away and save up for a camera (I’m sorry if you expected something awesomely sensitive like World Peace). Thank you to all those who chipped in to help–be it financially or mere support or kind words. You are all so lovely and one day, I hope to be of help to any of you as well.
I will be attaching my donation widget on every one of my blog entries until I’ve managed to buy my own camera. Once again, it’s not mandatory, so don’t get your knickers in a twist, I’m just trying to exhaust all my means.
