Spending Mode and Random Thoughts About Music
Recently, I was made aware that I have been on a spending mode. For someone who is usually thrifty, I do get those periods when I throw caution to the wind and burn cash like there were no tomorrow. And when it happens, I do tend to get carried away.
I honestly was not aware of that, until I glanced at my bank account last night. Yup, even though the sight of this blazingly beautiful red epiphone es 335 pro at guitar center made my blood quicken, there is no way in hell I can afford to stay in my spending rut.
On a related note, if you have known me for a while, you'd know that music plays a crucial role in my daily life. When I was younger, I always had a battered acoustic guitar with me. My mom would berate me for playing the keyboard when I had chores to finish. (That wasn't always the case, though. I remember hating piano lessons when I was 5 years old.)
Seeing that guitar for sale online made me think about those days. I have not held a musical instrument in ages. Maybe that's what I need to dispel these inexplicable moments of gloom that seem to like visiting me recently.
Back to my spending mode...This has got me thinking. I noticed that I tend to go all out when I am not in the best position financially. Is it a way of trying to deny reality? Or am I just really so whimsical at times and that I do not even realise what's going on?
Does anyone else have this tendency?
