What I Wanted,Ain't What I Got

What I Wanted, Ain't What I Got... by Bougie Girl Apparel
I wanted something. I mean, I really wanted it. And I thought that if I made all the sacrifices, played the right games, and sucked up to important people that what I wanted would occur.

But, it didn't show up at all.

Instead, I ended up with an ulcer, a bunch of fake friends, and no real sense of direction.

Warning: I Try Too Hard

Warning: I Try Too Hard... by Bougie Girl Apparel

I have tendency to try too hard. Don't say that you haven't been warned. I will one up you effortlessly and without remorse. I am not afraid to put myself out there...WAY out there for the sake of being the center of attention. Did you have a tough childhood? I bet mine was 10 times tougher and to prove it to you, I will regale you with anecdotes which are reminiscent of a Dickens novel.

This Is Why I Am Not Checking Your Phone...

This Is Why I Am Not Checking Your Phone.... by Bougie Girl Apparel

I don't have to check your phone, email, or even Facebook account to catch you in a lie. All I have to do is listen and actively apply my critical thinking skills. Checking your phone and your other accounts is an invasion of your privacy and I am not into infringing upon the rights of anyone. Especially, when they are so clearly not worth my time.

I Am The Common Denominator

I Am The Common Denominator... by Bougie Girl Apparel

My successes and my failures have one thing in
 I am the common denominator and I must never forget that. Otherwise, I am doomed to an existence of eternal unhappiness and emotional instability.

This Is What A Relationship Hassle Looks Like....

This Is What A Relationship Hassle Looks Like... by Bougie Girl Apparel

I am what you call a relationship hassle. A real pain in the neck...or so I am told. Apparently, men whom are  actively cheating on you, do not appreciate being called out on it. 
My mistake, next time I promise to do a better job of looking the other way.
Far be it from me to expect fidelity in an exclusive relationship. 


Hipstertabulous by Bougie Girl Apparel

I live in a world inhabited by esoteric and obscure things...which is exactly how I prefer it.  I hold no interest in being a member of the cultural proletariat. I wear ill-fitting iconic retro clothing, read poetry chapbooks of political dissidents from the 1950's, listen to obscure garage bands on satellite radio, and use a toolbox as my purse. 
I hold 3 graduate degrees and I work in a coffee shop where at any moment I have been known to converse with customers in a 19th century dialect of  Hungarian.
My  clothing attire, reading choices, musical tastes, and obscure cultural references have been carefully cultivated in an effort to isolate  me from the rest of the world.

Other People's Karma

Other People's Karma... by Bougie Girl Apparel

I spend way too much time obsessed with other people's karma. That jerk Ex of mine, whom cheated on me with half of my friends. He's got bad karma for sure. I hope that I am around to see his world crash all around him. 
My former BFF from elementary school betrayed me and then spread a whole bunch of lies about me...there is a package o' bad karma coming her way.
My former co-worker who stole my ideas and then got me fired. Karma is gonna eventually atomize his career. All I have to do is wait for these cretins to get there just desserts.

C Student Wunderkind

C Student Wunderkind... by Bougie Girl Apparel

I am a educator's worst nightmare. I am a C Student Wunderkind. My high school guidance counselor hated me because his stern warnings about my lack of academic drive did not inspire me to raise my GPA.  However, he was right about my crappy work ethic being a problem for me down the road. I did take his advice on that score and it was very helpful. In fact, I attribute it to a majority of my success. See, as a C Student Wunderkind I was free to attend community college and then a small no name 4 year college in the hinterlands of North Dakota sans judgement from anyone. My friends and family were glad that I was in college. Throughout college, I maintained a successful online retail store selling unusual jewelry pieces which I made in my spare time. It put food on the table and kept a roof over my head.  Right before I graduated from college, some  TV reality star began wearing my pieces. She was nice enough to give my jewelry a plug …
