You guys...this studying for the LSAT thing has not helped my frivolous spending. In the beginning it was fine but ever since the 3 week countdown mark began I have been suddenly spending a lot. I'm not sure if it's because I've been away from everything and also because I didn't pay attention to fashion week at all, or if it's from all the non-stop studying, or if it's from the sleep deprivation but I have purchased quite a lot in the past 2 weeks.
Here's a breakdown because I need to be held accountable:
Zappos - Steve Madden Pembrook booties $129
Hautelook - Splendid items (LOVE this brand and have been waiting for a sale) $154
AE - Black ankle boots on sale $35
Forever 21 - some basics for Fall (including the coolest cobalt blue skinnies) $112
As you can see...I basically blew my shopping budget out the window for the entire month of September AND October. I don't know what happened but there you have it. My brain has been mush from studying logic however it still has time to think about shopping.
The stress, anxiety, and panic has set in and I think I have resorted to doing what I know best, and that's shopping. I have found that I turn to spending money when I am in these types of predicaments and by blogging about it, it really helps me realize that I need to reel it all in. I began this blog to stop this habit and I did successfully but when you throw yourself in a busy schedule and you are put under pressure, that's when self control needs to come in.
I also wanted to check out Target to see if they had any Missoni x Target stuff but I held back as I knew I wouldn't be able to control myself. Also I've been wanting to decorate my office space since I am there more than half of my life so I want it to be soothing and comfortable, but I haven't had time to think about it yet.
The LSAT is in 12 days and I'm in panic mode. The studying has been kicked up a notch and I'm now getting 4-5 hours of sleep and drinking coffee like it's going out of style. Starbucks is making a small fortune out of me and yes I know that if I stop buying Starbucks I will have more money if I invest it but right now nothing can buy sanity more than my iced white mocha so Starbucks it is. The library is my 2nd home and I am constantly thinking of fallacies and valid/invalid arguments when I talk to people. It's getting a bit annoying. I'm thinking that I should get a massage the Friday before to release the stress and emotion since it will be the most important test of my life. I just have to keep studying so I don't have to take this test again in December.
Anyone have any tips for combating nervousness, anxiety, panic, stress, or plain ol butterflies?
