“No Lindsey, you don’t really need that right now,” is what I kept telling my self last Thursday walking passed a boutique downtown. The first week in and I am feeling anxious and pretty annoyed, but keep telling myself I can do it. But instead of grieving over the temptations to shop, I have been busy with studying and not had the time to think about buying apparel items. This weekend, instead of buying a new Mizzou shirt for the game, I made a T-shirt dress that actually turned out to not be so bad. I admit, I was a little nervous about how it looked on me but with the compliments from my friends on how cute it was made me feel relieved that I had accomplished the challenge of resisting my urge of buying a new Mizzou outfit.
