I haven't published an entry in NuTang for a while so I thought I'd catch up. I'm in my ANSC 119 class right now at UCSD (gestures in society) and the TA is going over the midterm.
This particular midterm was so abstract it was hard to grasp. I feel like I rambled on too much in some places and cited the same examples several times because I could not get a handle on what the Professor was posing with the quotes available.
Anyway, this is my last class of the day, then I go to RIMAC to work out. After that, I'm going home. I'm not staying on campus today because I just don't feel like it. The weather outside is beautiful at the moment, so I will take advantage of that while it lasts.
I have one quarter left before I graduate(!) and it has yet to hit me. Woo.
Time to refocus on the lecture.

Ok, so out of curiosity I decided to google Hollister Co. and Abercrombie and Fitch just to read up on the origins of the similar brands. Turns out HCO is a tangent of A&F and that there are particular pricing strategies involved to distinguish one from the other. Interestingly enough, I actually like the feel and fit of HCO clothing over A&F stuff, and it's supposedly the "cheaper" brand that I just read caters to the 14-18 yeard old demographic.
Well damn. I'm definitely not 18 anymore and I don't particularly see any reason to be spending extra $$ on something that looks exactly like it's most cost-efficient alternative. Yes, there are people who SWEAR they will not be caught wearing the "lower-end" of this clothing hierarchy, but honestly, I could care less. I wear what I feel comfortable in and if it's cost-effective as well, then hey, I'm all on it.
And don't even get me started on this Ruehl.925 madness. Different strokes for different folks for sure, but I'm more than satisfied with my clothing choices thus far; maybe if I feel like it, I'll "splurge" on an A&F or Ruehl shirt every now and then. /sarcasm
