I often find it fascinating how I can be really stingy with my money when it comes to things like clothes or food. I can rant for hours how I don't have too much money for good food, but I can go and buy really expensive stuff without blinking an eye when I feel like it. I guess it has to do with what I consider useful. And I like to buy things for future purpose, too.
I think this latest buy is one of those "investments for the future". The thing which really is useful in being a student is the 80% discount of Adobe products... ;) Especially now that they've changed the policy and one can use the student editions also for commercial use after one has graduated. But I don't think that far ahead, I just want to see what I can do with these things - and with my videocam. :D
