I visited Ollies Bargain Outlet for the second time in a week and purchased two sheet sets, along with some morale boosters like a paint-by-numbers kit, modeling clay, drawing books, and puzzle books like sudoku. However, I may not be able to afford such purchases in the future as I went over my budget. It's strange how we tend to overspend during sales. The bag containing my purchases weighed twenty-eight pounds, and it felt even heavier as I carried it from Ollies to Taco Casa and then to the bus stop. It was quite a workout!

I'm not sure whose twisted idea it was to put hundreds of adolescents in underfunded schools run by people whose dreams were crushed years ago, but I admire the sadism. -- Wednesday Adams, Wednesday
