So this morning we had a guest come over. Sajid’s driver/carpool lady wanted to come over to visit since she had only 2 more weeks of driving him. I liked her, she was really nice. Ma was saying her very wealthy brother had just recently died. She at point told me about how her daughter when she was 16, had become anemic due to heavy, irregular menstrual bleeding aka…menometorrhagia. I was asking why that happened, trying to figure out all the million reasons why heavy bleeding issues even happen. She didn’t really answer it so I was left to just guess. But then I realized that all that stuff I crammed into my head two weeks ago have become a blur. *sigh* I can never retain medical stuff. Could be hypothalamic-pituitary issues, since there was no abnormal ultrasound, but who knows.
Anyway shortly after she came, one of our neighbors, Quail Auntie (I don’t know if her nickname is actually Quail as in the bird, or some random bengali word like kwail? Who knows?) came over with her adorable little toddler and his grandma. She was somehow related to Sajid’s driving lady. Anyway it was pretty enjoyable morning, listening to bengali women talk about life. Yes, I am like an old bengali grandma myself, but with crappy bengali XD.
Driving lady left, and then Lovely auntie (her nickname IS literally Lovely) came over and then the three of them (including Ma) were talking about random stuff. I was like okay, I have errands to run. First off, I had bought a black shirtdress from Uniqlo a month ago exactly, but when I got home I realized it was very very thin and see through (even for a black dress), and I had yet to return it. Today was the last day to return it (thank God I actually put that on my calendar!!). I actually ordered a way better black shirtdress from Mango (was my first time ever ordering clothes online without trying them first) but thankfully, it fits well. And it’s so much better made than the Uniqlo one.
So I went over to Herald Square. I first went to Aldo. On Saturday, when I bought the pretty dreamcatcher necklace, it actually said Buy 2 get 1 free, but I never picked a second item to be free, because I didn’t like what that Aldo had for sale. So I tried to get my second item today. I just showed my receipt and it worked, and I ended up buying this hand chain. I have no idea when I’ll actually wear it, but I have it in stock.
After that I went to Uniqlo to return the shirtdress. Then I went to Forever21, which was pretty interesting…so the store lost a lot of power. There was no AC, they couldn’t use credit cards, and the whole back of the second floor (like the jewelry section) was completely dark. Some lights for flashing, indicating something went awry. Technicians were all over the place too. I had wanted to get cat-eye sunglasses, but I could barely see anything. And they didn’t take cards, so it was a useless venture.
Then I went to the new big H&M (which is like diagonal to the other H&M…). I posted before about an olive satiny blazer I liked. It was $34 before, but it was on sale for 20. I couldn’t find the olive one, which pissed me off, but I thought black was always a safe staple. I also got sunglasses. I wonder if I’ll actually wear them…
Then I went to Payless, where I got very much needed comfy shoes for walking. Flats are really bad for me, and my current comfy shoes are sooooo damn smelly!!!! Even washing them doesn’t get of it. Payless made yearly versions during college days of my fave comfy shoes by Comfort Plus, but they seemed to stop making it, which was annoying because I really needed new shoes! I settled for the champion shoes. Should do the job. I do need sandals though…too hot for closed shoes.
I made pitstops at JC Penney and Starbucks, and then went my way home. Also, I am soo glad that for once I remembered to take an umbrella, because it was pouringg like hell!
Didn’t really do anything this evening. Spent forever editing pictures. I am a Fotor addict (photo app). Love it. If you see my pics, it’s obvious I’m going through a severe vintage/polaroid wannabe phase.
And then I watched Pitch Perfect, which was awesome!!! They just announced Pitch Percfect 3, which is great…but I gotta see the second one!! But it just got out of theater, so now I have to wait… *bummer*. I had a massive crush on Jesse, he was sooo cool. So cute. Beautiful amazing voice *swoooon*. And he was soo into Beca!! He was so charming and funny around her *swoooon again*. When she sang the Breakfast Club song at the end, I was like omg sooo romantic!! And then the final kiss. Ugh the feels. It was perfect.
The movie made me wanna pretend doing acapella. Why do I lack such natural abilities why??
Anyways, I need to plan my day for tomorrow and then sleep. Currently listnenting to Coldplay’s latest cd, Ghost Stories. Everyone needs to listen to O and Always in My Head. Hands down, probably their best ever “solemn/mellow song.” Aside from Fix Me. That will always reign #1!
