Alrighty - so this is around the beginning of my jet setter life
(hopeful life I mean...)
I was at Newark for about a 2 hour lay over on Monday. I was pissed they had some imitation Starbucks near my gate so I couldn't get coffee. I know, I know - Starbucks is just as good as any others. But you know something - when I buy something, a lot of it about the label. I like labels, I like prestige and I like quality. Lands End has some pretty good quality stuff - but there's no label. I'd much rather get something from Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors or Burberry even if I have to pay 10$-100$ more.
So it was kind of a rough start to the day without my coffee. But I deiced to pick myself up from the let down of the day. I explored the area near my gate and I found a news area. I found good ol' Elle and bought it. I got some Juicy Fruit too. Only problem is - tax was like $1.00 and I was short $0.15. My6 parents don't let me have financial independence so it's not like I could have charged it on debit - in fact they don't even show me my bank statements. Luckily the guy just paid the 15 cents with his own money (such a cool guy).
That brightened my day. So with my Elle and Juicy fruit and my bag in hand I went back to my group. I started flipping though it and they were surprised that I got Elle. What surprised me was that they were surprised. I'm not some straight dude. I'm gay! I like boys. They got over it quickly though.
I got home at BTV international Airport FINALLY! ( I had like an hour delay - UGH!). My mom saw it and was suprised. I was just like "What?!?!".
*sighs* Can't the fact that I like fashion magazines not be a suprise?
