I just recently watched Confessions of a shopaholic at my friend Jason's place. I know, that movie was shown months ago, and since I'm not a movie buff, I just watched it because that's one of the most recent dvd copies he has.
I like chick flicks. Ofcourse I'm a lady for one thing, and I just hate seeing gory films with blood all over the screen. And I loved this movie. Let me just say that I can relate with Isla Fisher who played Rebecca Bloomwood, an obsessed shopper-turned-successful columnist. I love writing... I am a frustrated writer. and I have lots of credit card debts for being a shopaholic once. Well, I'm not really that type who will not go home without at least 5 shopping bags. But the fact that I have loads of cards and debts makes me really go for this flick.
It has been so hard for me for the past couple of months, struggling real hard, rendering overtime work and looking for extra income just to be able to pay off all my debts. You wouldn't want to be in my shoes. You wouldn't want to hide from all those collection callers just like Rebecca Bloom. You wouldn't want to be like me who tries hard to resist all temptations to go to malls because surely, you'll buy something AGAIN rather than paying what you purchased the week before. Even I have a very stable job (is it?? hahahaha!) and has been with the same company for almost 5 years which pays well somehow, salary and allowance won't be enough to pay everything off. With a husband who is sooo much like me, you'll feel like heaven one minute and hell after.
On the brighter side, I am not using my cards anymore (as of today), had one paid off and cancelled(which leaves me 3 more), and I am trying my best to recover from all my responsibilities.. I just hope I can do it before it's too late......
