Well Haven't You Heard the Rumors

Everyone at my university is reacting to the recent celebrity gossip about a certain Miley Cyrus enrolling next year. Emotions are ranging from anger and embarrassment to those who are simply giddy to possibly spot a celebrity of our generation in the area. And unfortunately, some of the people in the former camp are attacking the latter for being so clueless or just desperate to meet someone, anyone who is famous.

What do I think about this? Andy Warhol said "In the future, everyone will be world famous for 15 minutes." Miley's had her time in the spotlight and maybe you'd like to think that she'd trying to settle down and lay low for a while. I'm not a fan of her work mind you but everyone has a right to apply and enroll in higher education. If I don't want to associate with her, I don't have to since she will most likely be in another major that isn't related to mine.

This is in response to your PM. For some reason, LJ is marking my messages and posts as 'sent' and 'successful' but nothing appears in my 'Sent' box. I hope this comment succeeds!

Yep! ^_^ I'm looking for 380 SGD + shipping. Where are you located?

Hi there! I'm experiencing the same problem as well with my messages - glad to know that this comment worked!

I'm located in the US, 92128 CA. May I ask the condition of it and whether you would consider taking offers?
Feb. 11th, 2012 04:48 pm (UTC)
Hiya! OK, shipping would be about 35 SGD as it's really material-heavy, but I could go down to 390 shipped if it helps :) If this is still too high, what offer do you have in mind? Another buyer messaged me after you, so if she's looking to make an offer too, I will take the higher offer. I hope that's alright! You have priority for sure though ♥

It's in great condition, no stains or flaws. The age doesn't show and there are no armpit stains or anything :) I have never worn it out before -- it's a pretty dress and it really is very 'me', but it's just been hanging in my closet and I felt I should let it go. XD;;

That's perfectly understandable - wanting to take the highest offer.

I am in love with the color and style of the JSK but my only problem is convincing my folks to let me drop $390 on a single dress without knowing right off the bat if it will flatter me or fit properly. I'm in the process of applying to become a paid tutor at my university so I'm hoping that will bring in some income.

I'll let you know what they say, especially since its my dad's Paypal I'd be using. If they were to say yes, could I do $350 shipped?

380 SGD is actually 300 USD, not 380 USD if that helps. XD Would it still be in range if I went down to 380 then? ♥

I know its $300 US, no worries. I guess my brain was saying to type in SGD instead of USD in the last few posts.

May I ask what the other buyer is hoping to pay for the JSK?
Feb. 12th, 2012 04:36 pm (UTC)
Ack, my bad! I usually remember to list USD and EUR conversions, but forgot to do so this time.

The other buyer has proposed a trade instead, and I would rather take $350 shipped over the trade. Is it alright if PP fees are added on top of that, though? It would be 364 SGD after fees (4% - 3.4% + border fees).

Hi there! Is it okay if I let you know by Sunday? Things were hectic this weekend and I didn't want to ask my folks about the JSK if there was other important stuff going on.
Feb. 14th, 2012 06:04 am (UTC)
Heya -- no problem at all :) I can wait until Sunday. Should there be any updates on my end, I will let you know here.

I do prefer cash to trades right now so it is unlikely that I will sell it to the other buyer; however, if someone offers me my asking price in full or on a short payment plan (I think it seems unlikely though), I will sell it to them unless you might consider my asking price - in which case they would be second in line.

Lol that was one long sentence. I hope I was clear though *_*

Hi! A third buyer was willing to pay my asking price, so I have invoiced her. If she falls through, I will let you know.
Feb. 18th, 2012 08:12 pm (UTC)
I'm glad that happened. I was about to tell you that I decided against the JSK in the end. Hope the sale goes through smoothly!
Feb. 18th, 2012 08:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :) No worries, I'm glad that it worked out for both of us in the end.

she's getting the BESSSSST OF BOTH WORLDS, lol. i watched hannah montana way back when, but haven't followed her since.
Feb. 12th, 2012 04:03 pm (UTC)
Yeah I used to watch it too then got sick of it. Now she's living a lifestyle I'm not crazy about and I'm left wondering why she even decided to choose it.
