2017: The Year…

Like every year before 2017, the year was filled with ups and downsβ€”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?Β 

My Christmas Wishlist (2017)

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 Xβ€”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

Brown Formal Shoes by Clark’s.Β Β£78. Not what I really want, but close enough.

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.Β  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.Β I never used that term before. But yeah.
