The Act of Wanting

'To want' is a powerful verb. It perturbs into your mental state and well-being, disturbing your process of thought, other times enhancing such thought-process. Part of my very personal, secret (well, now it's no longer a secret) daily ritual is virtual-window shopping, sitting on the bus, waiting for someone, in-between lectures. Admittedly, it's a materialistic act - more than I'd like it to be. But also it is a form of inspiration. What's in the shops allows for a bridge between wanting items by sheer happenstance and wanting items due to having seen them, or an idea of them. I tend to think upon my process of thinking, the why behind the thinking for want of a better word. I don't know if this is normal or just plain weird... you tell me.

Philosophical speak aside, here is what's currently "perturbing" my thoughts. You will notice that most of the stuff here is far from affordable for the average twenty-year old trying to cope with studies and life but here's another thought - why ban quality out of our lives? I like to look at high-end, quality pieces because that's the only way you can learn to spot the difference between a twenty-euro pair of shoes and a 700 euro pair. So, no, I am not going to delude you and myself with high-street 'bargains', even if that's all I can afford.
Oh sweet wanting, she said, looking at the shop window, counting her pounds to the penny.
