So in the next couple months, the government will be returning a couple thousand of my hard-earned dollars. I've got an intense internal debate going on about what to do with it. Have a listen.
Sensible Me: "Put it all in savings! Max out your Roth IRA contribution from last year! You'll need the money when you're old."
Shopper Me: "Naw, I'll never be old. I'll just keep it in checking and not worry about spending. I need some new clothes anyway!"
Photographer Me: "Clothes, schmothes. Who cares what you wear? BUY A DSLR, STUPID!!!"
More Sensible Photographer Version of Me: "Too much money gone at once! Buy a zoom lens for the film camera!"
Hardcore Photographer Me: "That thing is a piece of crap and you want a DSLR anyway. Save the hundred bucks and BUY A REAL CAMERA!"
Wanderlust Me: "Um, hello? No point in any camera at all if you're sitting at home all the time. Get out and GO somewhere!"
Maploving Me: "But to where? Glacier? Alaska?"
Passport-Stamp-Seeking Me: "Pshaw. The US is for sissies. Go to Patagonia! Or Peru! Or Vienna! Or Cinque Terre!"
Hardcore Photographer Me: "Are y'all high? Why go to an amazing place without an amazing camera?! BUY A CAMERA, DUMBASS!"
Travel-lovah Me: "But waaah, I haven't gone anywhere. If I buy a camera then I'm wiped out and can't travel!"
Realist Photographer Me: "And there's no reason to go somewhere incredible with a good camera if you don't know how to USE it, or understand how to make good pictures. Take another class or something."
Fit-Conscious Me: "Speaking of classes, get your lazy ass a trainer. Jeez."
Pennypinching Me: "Earn interest, use it later! BANK! SAVINGS!!"
Tired of Hearing Voices Me: "Shut up, all you troublemakers. I can't do anything with it at all. I'll need it for bills soon anyway. I hate decisions. Go away!"
