So I woke up at 6 to get ready to go to Valley Fair got to the mall at around 7 cause my sister woke up late. So first we stopped by Metro Park but I didn’t buy anything there cause shit was too expensive. Then we headed towards Macy’s where I bought 2 Levis. After not buying anything at Zumiez and Pacsun we went to American Eagle and I bought 2 flannels. Finally on the way back to the car we stopped by American Apparel and I got a new jacket. So we ended up leaving at around 11 and all in all it was a pretty good shopping day for me considering I only shop for clothes every few months or so. And now I’ll go eat some food, do some laundry, and take a nap.
