I wrote last week about all of the changes that are going to be occurring over here (and really… I can't wait… but I have to for a bit… these things take time!) and it got me thinking, once again, about my own life. I've written about this before, but I'll be honest… I inherited some wine from a friend who is moving to Guam (!!!) tomorrow... and SB and I just killed a bottle of it... and I've got some really killer music on, so I'm feeling more reflective than usual.
I really always thought that I would graduate college, get married right away (I'd been living with the same person for years). We were going to buy (yes, buy… as 22-year olds) an amazing apartment in Chicago or Manhattan and work fabulous jobs (he in finance, me in fashion). We were going to run in the fashionable circles and would inevitably end up attending charity functions and spending way too much time at VIP tables with bottles of Cristal. I'd eventually make it into the pages of Teen Vogue, despite being my my twenties and only being 5'4" just because I was that cool. By then, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie would be my BFFs, so they'd be sending their private jets to pick me up and fly me to Tahiti on the regular, and at that point, I wouldn't really have to work anymore. I would have successfully Kardashiened my way to fame and would probably start popping out babies by then, because who doesn't love a celebrity baby?
I think it's safe to say that none of that happened… thank goodness.
In reality, I'm getting super nostalgic for the 90s. My dancers have recently been subjected to a slew of Spice Girls, NSYNC, BSB, and old school Britney Spears in dance classes (and they still think I'm awesome… a class that I don't even teach, but stuck around to get started because their teacher was running late told me that they love my classes because I'm the "fun teacher.")(yay!). And since the oldest I ever was in the 1990s was 13, I feel that I really missed out on a lot of the grunge fashion that's truly marked the era. So I'm making up for lost times in this outfit. What do ya think?
