Seriously, I had hardly any clothes that fit into GEOS's work dress code, so I basically had to acquire a whole new wardrobe. Suits, dress pants, skirts, collared-shirts, etc.etc.... I'm so lucky my mother bought 99% of it for me. I would've given up shopping for all this stuff relatively quickly, had she not been helping me, so I was glad she was there yanking more shirts off the racks for me to try on, even though it got wearisome after awhile. I overheard her saying to my aunt that shopping for me was her way of distracting herself from / calming herself down about the fact that I'm going to Japan soon.
Overall, I bet I spent at least 12 hours traipsing through stores for clothes this weekend. NEW RECORD, I do believe! *flomps over* I think I might need one more pair of shoes or something, but not really anything else. That's one less big thing to worry about.
