Dear self, about this Alexander McQueen bag that you keep thinking you wish you could afford, I don’t know what to say to you.

Do you really want this Alexander McQueen bag? Or do you just think you want it? Do you really even care about material things? I’m not convinced that you do. And frankly, I think you need to figure yourself out. Because you are all over the place and I just don’t get the sense that you ever even know whether you’re coming or going.

And I’m not trying to be mean or anything, but you’re not exactly young anymore. I don’t think you can really afford to be all over the place anymore. You’ll never get your hands on this or any other Alexander McQueen bag this way.

What do you like so much about this Alexander McQueen bag anyway? If it’s the butterfly, just buy yourself a cheap black bag and find a way to stencil a butterfly onto it. Why would you even want to spend $1619 on a bag? And it’s such a small bag for that kind of money. I don’t know about you sometimes. One minute you’re all practical and sensible and righteously indignant about not measuring your worth according to what you have and what you don’t have. And the next minute you’re all depressed because you can’t afford to buy an Alexander McQueen bag that you darned-well know is way more expensive than a bag has any right to be.

Wake up. Get your act together. Maybe then you’ll be able to afford an Alexander McQueen bag if that’s what you want. If you think that’s what’s going to make you happy, is being able to buy designer bags. I’m not judging you. I mean, if that’s what will make you happy then focus your energy on getting to that point in your life where you will be able to buy any designer bag your heart fancies. Frankly you should already be at that point. And I’m sorry to say, at this point, it’s highly questionable whether or not you can ever get to that point. It’s quite possible that where you are right now is the height of where you are ever going to be. I know that’s a depressing prospect, because you’re really far down there on the totem pole. You have nothing. And after your stupid stint of increasing your credit debt by several hundred dollars to participate in the madness of the holidays, you now have even less. So I don’t know, you might never for the rest of your life find yourself able to afford an Alexander McQueen bag. Not that it should matter. It’s just a bag. But seriously, figure yourself out. Because if you really want any of the things you say you want, this is probably the last year of your life that the window of opportunity will be open far enough that you might still be able to get through it. Can you hear the clock ticking? Time is running out on you. Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock…

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
