I recently signed up for a membership at this gym right outside the back entrance of my apartment complex. It was 50,000 won (about $50) for a month, and it allows me to go any day and any time. Well, I started on Monday, and I discovered that my Skechers walking shoes were not going to work while I do the elliptical machine. My sole exercise shoes are not in good shape, so I decided to go buy a new pair of shoes today.
Anyway today was a long and difficult day for me at work. I’m suffering from a cold, and me being sick right now means I’ve been sick every bloody month since November! I felt so lethargic today. X_X;; After work, I went to the PX, and I suffered another dreaded disease called Priceritis. This seriously should be catalogued as a disease. Looking at the shoe prices gave me the following symptoms:
- Feeling faint
- Watery eyes
- Mental breakdown
The cure? NONE — Unless you count screaming bloody murder to yourself.
I don’t know what is going on with the economy (other than the fact that it sucks right now), but I have no fucking desire to pay $50-$120 on a pair of shoes. MY GOD. I looked at Nike, New Balance, and whatnot and nearly fainted from shock. The last time I went shoe shopping, which was about a year ago, I don’t recall shoes being that bloody expensive! I mean, DAMN. This is why I hate clothes shopping!
After scrounging around for a bit, I chose to get this in light blue for $46.75. Unfortunately, I had to stock up on other stuff, so my grand total on this shopping trip was over $90. OUCH. That means I only have $17 bucks in my bank account. WHOO HOO. X_X;; Thank goodness pay day is coming up on Tuesday.
