Confessing my sins – Online Shopping is dangerous

This is a translation of the e-mail I wrote to my mother after spending over $800 online on things for my room:

Mommy,

I spent a lot of money, but don’t worry cause I should have enough left to pay you the tickets (speeding tickets, etc) and save up some when I receive my money. =D
Here’s a list of what I bought.

From orientalfurniture.com:
3 tatami mats
1 of these – 4′ by 2′
1 scroll – 2′ by ~6′
1 black lamp

From overstock.com:
1 comforter set, very nice, chocolate color
1 set of bed sheets – Ivory
1 set of pillows

For Bella [my cat]:
1 scratch-post, expensive [she better love it]
1 de-shedding-brush [so I don’t have to clean as much]

That’s all I bought — now I won’t eat for a month, haha.

-Omar

So that’s how I managed to spend a lot of money, before even getting it. I’m pretty happy with everything I’ve received so far though, and I’m excited for the things I’ll be getting next week. The bed sheets, the pillows, and the art, is all great. I’m in love.

  2. People often have a preference for tropical fish because of their beauty, their spectacular shapes and colors. Tropical fish are considered to be Freshwater Fish. Freshwater fish are quite easy to maintain, like the saltwater ones, but they needs a great deal of responsibility. Freshwater aquarium fish reside in a variety of different water habitats from fast-flowing streams, to lakes, and rain forest rivers. So their biotope can be very different from one fish to another. In order to recreate a natural setting for the tropical freshwater fish, it is important for the hobbyist to follow some simple rules.

  3. it is always AT RISK to shop online, mainly because you're not seeing the item and they might send you a different item. however, not exactly dangerous – not unless if you're giving away your card number.
