    Aftermath of a financial apocalypse...

    So after yesterday's evening, (and 3 days before i get my salary), when i decided to get yet ANOTHER 2 G's, the olive GW9400 and the GD-X6900 in black&white, which are now ordered from amazon, i went to bed with the nastiest thoughts of guilt, questioning why my ego always gets the best of me, when i could probably feed a family for a couple of months with the money that i spent, (not much for some, lots for me).

    So when i woke up this morning, still feeling echoes of those "mea culpa's" ive been saying to myself till i fell asleep, i decided to finally accept my actions as my own responsibility, got dressed, checked if my kid was still in bed...

    ...went out...

    ...and...


    I GOT THIS... :\

    Now,
    ...worry not, because for 180 bucks, i cant really say i bought it, it was more of a theft.

    So finally now yes, i can really justify the feelings of guilt ive been feeling since yesterday.

    Isn’t “buyer’s remorse” a wonderful feeling?!?!

    By the way, nice set, wear them in good health.

    You’re a G-Shocker and you officially have “the sickness”, no chance your mental health will recover.

    G’s just have this way of making you poor. It’s a fact of life.

    I never feel guilt about my spending and how I could save a panda or some stray animal or kids in need of something. It's, not that I'm cold hearted, I do my donations to charities that I trust and are local.

    I take care of my family and we do splurge on ourselves.

    If giving makes you feel good, do it. If more immediate family centric, go for it. This is a 1 ticket ride, so as, long as you are not hurting others with your actions, enjoy.
