I bought new running shoes yesterday. I’ve been running more regularly recently and have been getting weird shin pains that I’m hoping are from my old shoes and that will magically disappear with the new shoes. I’d had the old ones for a couple years anyway, and the pressure of having just bought new shoes might keep me running until the first real snowfall.
I bought a Mac a few years ago because I needed a new computer. I decided not to buy the cheapest PC I could find because I swear I sit in front of this computer more often than I sit in front of my husband. I am a freelance editor, and without my computer I’m just a near-homeless person with uncanny grammar skills.
Of course I’m privileged that necessity doesn’t make me buy a crappy PC because I can’t scrounge the money for a Mac. But if you can afford a little bit extra without having to eat cat food, then it is good sometimes to make a gesture of faith in yourself.
What do you invest in?
