Romantic Vintage Ballet Flats - Le Bunny Bleu

If T.V. has taught me anything it's that a nice glass of scotch or bourbon is what you drink when you're upset, happy, or feeling any emotion. At least that's what 30 Rock, Criminal Minds, Mad Men, The Newsroom, and basically any show that features an alpha male tell me. Whenever, I'm on the plane I always have a ginger ale, pretend its a glass of scotch, and love to sip it while looking pensively out the window like I'm Jack Donaghy. It may seem like an odd thing to do but it's almost like I'm meditating. I love traveling and I know I live in the future too much and so just those moments of me pretending I'm in control of my life sipping scotch and looking out upon the world where I'm privileged makes me live in the now and remember things. 

That probably doesn't make much sense. Maybe it's because it's 2 a.m. and I'm planning on pulling an all-nighter and I tend to think "deep" thoughts I think are stupid in the morning. 

I just watched the Newsroom season finale and Sloan Sabbith put me into perfect words: "The greater fool is someone with the perfect blend of self-delusion and ego to think that he can succeed where others have failed. This whole country was made by greater fools."

I want to drink bourbon, work on Wall Street, and be involved in economics academia. All those things are controlled by alpha males. I want to be the greater fool and hope that I can be the woman that enters a male dominated world. I'm aware that the financial / corporate sector of America is perhaps the most sexist and maybe that's what I like about it. I want to be the one to prove people wrong.
