Why don’t you investigate how to best use the public transportation in your life? I don’t live in a city, so this doesn’t apply to me, but so many of you do live in wonderful metropolises. Why drive when you can catch a train? Save the earth, reader!
Why don’t you whine a little bit to your family until they agree to pay for something that you want (but don’t want to pay for)? I must warn you, this is not always an effective technique, but then again, sometimes it is. I now have tickets to a Dolly Parton concert in London and a pass to Disneyland Paris for a day. YOLO. (That’s an ironic YOLO, of course.)
Why don’t you switch all your writing paper from lined paper to grid paper? It’s so much chicer to follow along with the little boxes than it is to write on a tedious line. It’s also so European! You can get it anywhere, too, such fun!
Why don’t you visit your local consignment shop and put together the fanciest ensemble you possibly can. You’ll be surprised by the treasures you might come across — I once found a really good fake Louis Vuitton bag. Good times. Go shopping, reader.
Why don’t you go shopping for new leopard print clothes? Buy leopard print bags and shoes and scarves and belts and shirts. If I had been born earlier, I would have become fast friends with the woman who inspired these posts: Diana Vreeland. She once said, “I’ve never met a leopard print I didn’t like.” Wonderful woman.
I’ve been practicing Friday for my entire life.
I need to catch up with you. I’ve only got the shoes.
