Of all the introductions I made about myself, I forgot to tell you how forgetful I can be. I can remember my childhood memories and even simple moments from the past but there are also simple things that I tend to forget easily. It’s like I have some sort of short-term memory loss. Hehe. I will give you an example. This is what happened to me today.
Since yesterday, I was thinking to buy a dress for our youth camp next week. I was chosen to be the emcee last year for the Banquet Night so it’s better to be prepared this year. 😛 This morning, I still couldn’t decide if I’d purchase one because of oh-so-many reasons but in the end, I’d given up and decided to go to a boutique.
I’m not the type of girl who loves shopping but ever since I discovered this particular store in Cavite City, I felt like I wanted to buy at least one piece of clothing there every month. They sell nice clothes in a very affordable price. I went there with my cousin and friends. They were suggesting some dresses for me but since it’s summer, the designs and styles are mostly floral or summer-y. I need a semi-formal dress not a casual one so I guess, maybe I should not buy at all. Maybe, it’s a sign. Until, I saw this blouse hanging in the corner. It’s a loose long-sleeved cover-up type of top in brownish/dark purple-ish color. I think I could wear it for summer because it’s a bit see-through but I could also wear it on cold nights. When I tried it on, I literally fell in-love with it.
So, I didn’t think twice and bought it. It’s worth 350 pesos which is a low price for how it actually looks like but it’s also the same value as two hours of my tutorial. It was placed inside a paper bag and I was carrying it as I walked out happily from the store.
I had to ride two buses before I get to be at home. So, during my first ride, I edited the pictures that I would be posting on my Instagram just to pass the time. Then when I got to the bus stop, I transferred to the next mode of transportation. All seats should be occupied by passengers first before the bus got to move. So again, while waiting, I needed to kill boredom by browsing on my phone. I forgot my earphones so I couldn’t listen to music. I thought of taking a glimpse on my new blouse because I was so excited. Then, I realized… it’s not… with me… anymore. I left it on the other bus and it’s too late for me to go back.
I wanted to cry. I just wasted Php350 and the chance to own that gorgeous top. Well, technically, I owned it for about 15 minutes. Anyway, it’s not really much but it was the only one on the shop. I know when I go back there, I can’t buy another one like that. Probably, in a different color but not that one. How I wish I didn’t buy at all. I wanted a dress in the first place. Another thing I regret, why didn’t I hold that paper bag and just placed it beside me when I know I’m prone to forgetting things?
Well, yeah, this is not the first time that it happened. When I was 11, my mother scolded me hard because I also left my bag (filled with my dirty clothes) on a bus. I already lost a lot of umbrellas (those large ones) because I forget them when it’s not raining so I always prefer those folding ones. In my old school, I was known to always forgetting my tumbler in different rooms. I sometimes think I’m hopeless.
Well, what’s done is done. So, like what I’ve always planned on my blog, I should stay being positive.
Lesson Learned: If what I’m carrying is not heavy at all, hold it. FOCUS!!!
The Bright Side: I didn’t lose my phone or my wallet. It’s just a piece of cloth (and 350 pesos). I should move on.
