Things I'm Into.

1. Pretending to grow my hair out. If you know me then you know my obsession with growing my hair out. You may also know that I have never had long hair before. I have said, countless times, that I'm growing my hair out. Has it ever happened? No. I have always managed to chop my hair into a layered bob just when it's about to graze my shoulders. Well, once again I have claimed that I am growing my hair out. Who knows if it will actually happen this time.

2. Pretending that I will win every contest I enter. I enter contests with the absolute certainty that I will win them. I entered an Urban Outfitters contest to win a $1,000 shopping spree and was so convinced that I was going to win it that I actually started to fill my shopping cart. I also entered a contest to win a Coach bag and I was so sure that I was going to win that I contemplated withdrawing my entry because I thought there was probably someone else in the contest that wanted the bag more than me. Yep. It's true. And here's the best part: I'm not even upset when I lose. So, I guess it's not really a bad thing. And one day maybe I'll actually win.

3. Pretending to online shop. This is one of my favorite things to do. I would actually call it borderline unhealthy. I 'buy' things online by clicking 'Add to Cart.' I don't actually buy anything, I just watch as the price adds up and dream of buying all the things I want. Just a few days ago, I 'spent' $3,000 at Anthropologie. I like to call it 'retail therapy for the empty wallet'. It's quite effective.

4. Pretending I live in an apartment or house. I have lived in a dorm for two years. I don't have any complaints. I think it's been one of the best experiences I've had and I met my core group of friends by living there. When I daydream, though, I always picture myself in an apartment or house. I attribute this to the fact that all the things I want to do would be much more easily accomplished with a bigger space.
