EDIT: I have updated this post with images of me wearing the shirt.

Seeing as how I am going look pretty, financially wise, I decided this was the year I do cool stuff for myself, because I can :). One of the many cool things I have wanted to do, is to print my shirt, with the words: “Haters To The Left” on it.

I discovered this really awesome phrase 3 weeks ago, on the “South Africans Who Love K-Pop” Facebook Group (Which I must say is a REALLY awesome group on Facebook… I login to Facebook just to see the content in the group). Someone had posted this meme on the group, and it really moved me:

This GIF has laid the ground rules: Haters To The Left!!

Because I had itched to get a shirt with the above words written, and that I had a bit of money in my bank account, I decided to visit my local T-Shirt Printing Store, which is about under 2KM from where I live. When I got there, I told them I wanted to get a shirt printed with the text “Haters to the left”… The store had a lot of amazing fonts to choose from – I picked a custom-made font, which was super awesome!! They were so friendly to me, they sent me a rough plan of what the shirt print would look like.

After I had a look at the rough plan and I gave it the A-Okay, they went on with printing the T-Shirt. Because I have a hectic schedule, it was not possible for me to pick it up the day after I had ordered it – so I had to pick it up on a Saturday morning. The cost of the T-Shirt was just R110.00!! I am pretty sure this T-Shirt would have sold for anything between R180 – R250 at your usual clothing stores.

I have shown my housemates, a few classmates, and my friends the T-Shirt, and they all love the phrase! I even got a suggestion to make a Vest version of the T-Shirt (which I probably will do, as this shirt came out to be a little too big for me). I will wear this shirt on campus and everywhere else I go!! I can’t wait for the début of my T-Shirt!! Below are two images of me wearing the shirt!!

This T-Shirt was just one of many crazy plans I have!! More coming soon!!
