Like every year before 2017, the year was filled with ups and downs—though today’s world and local news have almost made it impossible for us to look into glimpses of hope. I, The Deranged Writer, have also a year mixed with development and disappointment, glory and melancholy. And without further ado, I am going to talk about my year that was 2017.
Warning: A few items are pro wrestling related, so for those who are non-fans, I apologize for that. But why are you not watching yet?
I just turned 27 last December 5, and it was perfect timing that my office released our 13th month pay. Oh, boy! Not including a house and lot and a new iPhone X—All the things I can buy with all of these moolah, baby. Fuck yes.
Wait a minute though. I do need to save up more primarily because my family and I will move out to a condominium in 2020. Which is why I might only buy one of the things on my wishlist this holiday season. Or two. I don’t know. We’ll see.
But anyway, here’s my list!
Brown Formal Shoes
Last year I was able to buy my first pair of black leather boots in Palladium. I love wearing the pair so much that I kept wearing it for almost 300 non-consecutive days. What? Yes, I did. Thank goodness they have not given up on me. Yet.
But, aside from my blue Adidas rubber shoes, I can’t always depend on my constant journey buddy. And having a pair of brown formal shoes (oxfords or brogues) is the perfect pair to change my shoe game.
Shoe game. I never used that term before. But yeah.
