Well, this time comes around every year now. You see, a couple of years ago, I made $300 watching dogs while people were away. Due to some very careful and disciplined spending, as well as only using the money people give me to by things now, I've only lost a portion of the original 300 dollar sum, which is now brough down to 250 dollars aproximatly.
Of course, every now and then (about every 6 to 12 months) I get a great desire to spend my money on something novelty. Unfortuntly, money does burn holes through peoples pockets, and I'm no different. So, I'm trying to add on to my collection of things Roman, including building a small library of Roman Literature, collecting some coins, and now I've set my sights on the infamous gladius, though my room is dressed in mideivil decor (burgandy walls, several tapestries mounted in different areas, a sheild hanging on the wall, nice bow in one corner) I have a desire to add another touch to it by getting a sword.
Of course, the trouble is convincing my mom to let me get it. I think I might be able to win out on "you bought my sisters all this stuff, for free, I'm offering to pay for this" but I'm not sure. Maybe I'll get it, maybe I won't. I lie in hope.
