    I have a rather nasty feeling I'll have to skip this. It all depends on what my financial situation will be. If I can't get any sort of financial aid for next semester, I won't be buying any MAC for a rather long time. =/

    i hope you manage to get some aid then - it's not easy for students at all anymore same thing happens in the uk. i only got a certain amount of student funding because my parents earned over a certain amount. which was stupid because they didn't pay for my things - i did it all on my own. i had to get a part time job and worked the 3 days when i wasn't at uni and then studied my ass off at night.

    I just read a few days ago that the Federal Pell Grant program has been/will be stopped. This sucks!

    How many collections can MAC come up with in a year? It seems like we have had collection overload over the last few months. Especially this month! My wallet will still be recovering from September MAC purchases in Dec!

    We still have the big Holiday collection (50+ pieces), the (expensive) Couture collection, and usually MAC releases three collections just after Christmas. I wonder if Glamglass will be part of the three after Christmas or if we are lucky and get four. I vote for four. LE around Christmas are just divine.

    But of course, they don't want to raise taxes on the top 1% of Americans (the rich folks) so why not screw over the poorer folks...this is just getting ridiculous, seriously, I really don't understand why they won't raise taxes on them, our economy balance is totally off and this is a BIG reason why, the rich get richer the middle class and poor get poorer, soon the middle class will be non existent!

    I digress...
    Depending on what comes out around this time I don't know what I will be getting, I have been slowing down with MAC, I am mostly looking at past collections and things I missed out on before I got into it.

    I'm usually a Fall collection girl, but since I've been a little nonplussed this year, I'm hoping for a few gems in the holiday and post-holiday launches.

    Yes, it really sucks for those who want to go to grad school as it will become so much more expensive, for both the private and public school level. The best bet is to have an outstanding GPA paired with a top GRE/GMAT to get full funding for grad school (while full funding probably barely covers the minimum, at least one won't end up with big loans).


    With regard to buying items from older collections. I would treat it as if you go to an outlet store: Don't go there and think I need "X," because most likely you won't find it. Just keep an open mind what is offered on the sales thread and then buy it if the price is right.
