I have been having… urges lately. No, not those kinds of urges, those are normal.
Sort of whimsical and fruitless ones.
The one thing they all have in common is that they’re about spending money for little gain. Some things that pop into my head are paying for WoW services (race changes), buying up music, buying other video games (Borderlands, Left 4 Dead 2 and Modern Warefare 2 was another one – shooting things seems to be a theme) and looking for books to read.
I’m wondering if it is guilt that people were let go recently, unsatisfying work, worry over the wife not talking to her mom (and guilt that I’m happy the mother in law hasn’t been around much), boredom or overtiredness, unhappiness or another sign of mid-life crisis? (I did have an urge get get a Mustang recently.)
Combination of all of the above?
