1 Super cute Domo backpack for $18, WHICH I HAGGLED TO... $15. Mostly I just complained about how expensive it was to my friends who all nodded eagerly back at me. Then I complained to the guy selling it. He gave me a helpless look and said "Okay you can have it for 15." SCORE.
2 A set of gift boxes, a coin purse, and a notebook. COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY TO MY SURVIVAL (I mean, who writes in notebooks anymore?) (I DO!) (but I have like 3 unused ones still in my drawer) BUT ADORABLE, NO? Yes. The gift boxes were $3, and the coin purse & notebook were 2 for $4.
3 CAT EARS and a Hello Kitty barrette! 2 for $10. Both are accessories that I can wear to work... sadly. I work at a booth selling Hello Kitty items, what do you expect me to wear? A tailored 2-piece suit with stilettos?
I promise you I'm not the weirdest Chinese girl you have ever met. Swear to God.
But I think working at two sushi spots and the Hello Kitty booth has... changed me.
On a different note, I was finally fired from Sashimi Sushi... So am now currently hunting for another job PLUS a place to live for my upcoming second year at UBC. Preferably around Commercial-Broadway skytrain station or Metrotown OH MY GOD IF I LIVE AT METRO I MIGHT JUST BECOME THE WEIRDEST CHINESE GIRL YOU HAVE EVER MET. Hel-lo, they have T&T, random Asian clothing stores, and a bazillion Chinese people living in one tiny community.
But honestly, I need to find an apartment, and fast.
And now a relic from the riot grrrl + Sassy mag era.
