It is no secret. I love the internet. What you may not know is that I also love getting packages (who doesn’t?) When I got my first credit card way back in 2004, I was able to put these two magical things together. And since 2004, Amazon has been there for me.
This is an self evaluation based on online shopping habits

I started out in late 2004. I had just transferred to Springfield college. I was a junior. And on October 17th, I placed my very first order on Amazon.com. Season 1 of Degrassi. The finest Canadian melodrama cable has to offer. It was an omen of things to come.
3 DVDs – Kentucky Fried Movie, Mulholland Drive, Degrassi Season 1

Kind of pathetic beginning here. 3 orders in 3 months to start. Then only 2 over the next 12. What was I doing?
Iliad & Odyssey Boxed Set – I have read a combined 10 pages of these two books. They make good paperweights (Worst Purchase of 2005 Award)
The 50 Year Seduction – A must read for any college football and/or televised sports fan

Ok. So I started out slow. I was still in college and I didn’t have a job. Cut me some slack. The only two items I purchased that year was Season 3 & Season 4 of Degrassi. But those are two amazing seasons. Manny got an abortion. Emma got gonorrhea, Jimmy got shot, the breakfast club episode, Billy Ray Cyrus as a cab driver, Terri gets put in a coma, Stay away from my boyyyyyy both of youuuuuuu, I makea da posters for your dance, Mr. O

This was a year of big purchases. It started with a GPS bought as a graduation presents for someone else. A new camera during the Olympics since I was over worked and needed something to look forward to. It was a awful camera. And it ended with the purchase of a 42″ plasma TV. (Sexy) That year I also signed up for an Amazon Visa Card. Now I earn triple points for any purchase on Amazon.
