My First Ebay Purchase!

I just won an ebay auction!!!

I'm so excited! This is going to be my first ebay purchase. I have always thought about buying things from ebay but never actually tried it. I've had an ebay and paypal account for a few years even!

Well lately I have been browsing around and finding so many things I want, and for so much cheaper than in the makeup (MAC, Smashbox) and Roxy purses and clothing.

I just bought a Smashbox Creamy Highlighter Quad, and have a few other items in mind that I've been keeping my eye on such as a few roxy purses, some MAC and Philisophy items. People warn me that Ebay is addicting, but I don't really care I say let the addiction begin!

Here is a picture of what i've just bought!

A recent weekend trip with a co-worker has got me thinking about relationships. She's got a boyfriend and boy, does he ever make me glad that I don't have one. I mean this guy is a fairly nice guy and all, but there is just little things he does that drive me up the wall and then it makes me think about myself and what I would be willing to put up with if it was me.

It's just little things like...always correcting her on every thing she says/does, and always telling her what to do. Sometimes I think he acts more like her father than a boyfriend! It gets me thinking, how much is too much? How bad does he have to be before you can start calling him "controlling"? He doesn't hit her or call her names, does that make it ok?? Or is this a warning sign of future behaviour like that?

When I hang out with them, I think to myself " if this is what its like to have a boyfriend, then I don't want one!"
I like to think that if it was me in that situation I would definately get out. But you can't really say until you've been in it right?? I bet all girls say that until they find that one guy they love too much to let go no matter what right?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic! How much is too much? How much would you put up with before you leave?

Need to vent!

Well today has been a pretty stressful day for me and I just need to get things out here. Lately I have just been not feeling like myself. I am just so stressed out lately at work. I mean I do love my job but I work in a pharmacy and its a very stressful job. Plus I just got promoted (which IS good) but its also an added pressure. There is still so much to learn (which is good cause I like learning) but it leaves me feeling stupid (for lack of a better word) most of the time.

Plus I am really moody lately, like the littlest things set me off and I want to cry. Like when I made mistakes at work, and people correct me, because they should cause I need to learn but sometimes I feel like how could I be so stupid?And then sometimes when I am dealing with customers, I can see in their eyes that they don't believe me because I am so young. I feel like they are thinking "she doesnt know anything shes just a girl" and I can tell they are thinking it and then it makes it harder for me to be pleasant with them because I feel like they are judging me.

I just feel really emotional lately and I don't know why. I feel like the stress is just too much to handle right now and I can't take it...but I don't know what I can do other than just to take it day by day...ugh.

Well thanks for letting me vent!! If anyone is or has been in this situation and has any suggestions please comment!

Just thought I would post a quick update on what's going on with me.

Currently reading : The Time Travellers Wife. Anyone heard of this book? Someone lent it to me and I have been reading it for about a week...and well I'm not really getting it I'm afraid. I am not really understanding what's going on, but I keep on

Work has been going good...yesterday was pretty busy and I worked late, but oh well thats an extra hour of pay. Time has been flying by and I am learning lots. Hopefully we are still hiring one more person to take the pressure off a bit.

Coming up next month I'm going to Ottawa!!!!! I'm so excited! I have been there twice and it seems like a really nice city to live in. Infact I may contemplate moving there in 3-4 years!

I'm looking to read some really good books about like personal finance or investing for beginners. If anyone has any recommendations I would really appreciate it!
