I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Which I didn't realize until I started writing it and it all came out. Apologies.
Also, my mom just got me the one thing I wanted for my birthday: a new Brenthaven bag just like the one I already have for school on eBay. It's gorgeous, and it's lasted for four years with minimal wear and zero damage.
I've been fretting over what to do when this one eventually wears out on me, and now I know: I'll have a new one to use for school and that will make this one last longer. Yay! This one is new - or so it's claimed on the site - and I got it for a fair amount less than I got mine for at the Apple store. (Where I would have bought another one, but they no longer sell them. Sadness.)
But this is good. I know what I'm giving away to one person for my birthday. (I feel good giving gifts so I give out at least one or two on my b-day.)
