It's been a week since you all know your match! How's everyone doing? Two weeks left until the shipping deadline.

I might end up spending more money on packaging than the contents of the package

One week until the shipping deadline. Time to wrap it up! I will be expecting PMs from all of you to tell me you sent your package.

Not an official part of the care share but I recently asked @natural.log if she could proxy some items from Hong Kong for me and she ended going above and beyond any expectations I had for the incoming package!!

For starters, I was warned about a large envelope but this was really massive. Size 11 shoe included for comparison.

Image

I had expected one thing but upon opening the package was completely shocked by the amount of goodies and care. The chocolate cream pocky will be saved for a special occasion and 2nd is a fantastic mag so far.

Image

Including a lovely illustrated note featuring some well-known faces and a hand-embroidered patch!! I'm scared of commitment but I have a bomber that I wear 3+ times a week that this will likely be adorning.

Image


The care season has begun!!

and now, what you've all been waiting for... the first care share unboxing of this year's holiday season!!!

Image

@rjbman did a superb job of assembling this package together! strong, strong lineup we've got here. was admittedly a tad disappointed when there was no candy upon first glance, but only after trying that fruit and nut mix did i realize just how wrong i was. that shit is god's candy. as for the rest of it, good stuff all around. will definitely read zero history asap as you said it's heavily tied to many things both fashion and non fashion wise ct adores, and will also give gq a shot even though i've never so much as even picked up a fashion mag before. socks are sick, xwing has already been assembled, and the albums remind me of my 8th grade years when i would belt out songs about drugs and incest without knowing what those actually were!

not shown was the nicely written out letter ending with a link to a short, story story inspired by that one raf sweater fit o'mine. as a side note, said story was eerily similar in subject to my common app essay... no idea how that happened, guess great minds just think alike!

all in all, great care share to top off what has been mostly a great year, and thanks again ryan! can't wait to see the rest of them unboxed!

Thanks @inc. for the package, it was incredible - I'm snacking on the butter crisps now. You are a lovely lovely person. Do you have any recommendations for the brewing of the tea?

thank you oh so much @oldtrailmix/Thor!!!!!! (had to do some detective work to figure out who you were haha)

Image

clockwise from left:
the most bitchin supreme shirt ever: seriously I love this thing, thank you so much. so soft and nice and boxy :^) plus this is probably one of my favorite graphics of all time. feels weird to accept this honestly.

Willy Shakes' King Richard III from fucking 1896: you know me so well! I love old books!!!!!! and some say the Histories are all bores but I really love them, this is one of the only ones I haven't read! looking forward to reading it and maybe even find a cool audition monologue in there ;^) some beautiful illustrations in there too:
Spoiler:
Image

the play Rain: I don't know much about this but it looks awesome! I know there was a movie of it w Joan Crawford in it and that my theatre teacher really likes the play. plus dat play/t shirt synergy

sand from Omaha Beach, Normandy: idrk know what to say about this except it's super cool duh

"S" monogrammed socks: I now consider my sock collection complete, shit yes. and I think these may be from a college but I'm not sure?

a lovely postcard with an equally lovely note on the back: thank you Thor!!! no you did not mess up at all, this is more than I ever expected to get for this :^) you have a wonderful holiday season as well!!!

edit: since I didnt take a video of the unboxing, here's a picture of me looking creepily happy wearing my new shirt!
