i really hate the mall.
But I went anyway yesterday morning with a few of my siblings. We heard that forever21 was opening a store near us and were giving away gift cards to the first 200. Yeah, we actually went and got in line, but we didn't try very hard to get there early. We still each got free $10 cards and did a bit of shopping. It was CRAZY. CRAZY. Like, what the heck was I thinking crazy. I got three long undershirts that I have been meaning to get and I got them for free. So that did make me feel good. But standing in line for all that time and watching how people acted as they ambushed the store, reminded me how much I dislike malls or any sort of shopping center. I looked at the quality of the stuff too and honestly, it's really cheap crap. Don't get me wrong, I have gotten stuff there before and I don't have a problem with buying things there on occasion, but it also helps me realize that their stuff really isn't very special. And just looking at all those shoppers...man. If you want to start hating people, go to crazy shopping malls where there is some sort of deal going on. Yikes. But I got my undershirts so I'm not complaining...much. When we got home, I phoned J and we headed to the Palisades, a ten minute drive from my place. It was great. We hiked all around the park, sat and enjoyed the view for hours. I will take nature any day over shopping malls.
