WHITE HOUSE DOWN

posted by Elshane on May 20 2014, under Fashion

Taking a trip to Washington D.C. this weekend was a sweat-induced exercise in U.S. History. All of those facts we learned when we were younger: the dates, the names, the series of events, the teams, the victories and heartbreak, slowly resurfaced, as if I closed the book on History of the Americas 101 just a few years ago.

Funny enough, I was re-learning the banes of my youth during the my daily informational strolls around D.C., while at night, reading #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso, friend and founder of NastyGal. She recounts her youth of being the anti-student, never absorbing, always fighting the rules, jumping from school to school, perpetually quitting, and eventually homeschooling.

Sophia and I are now in a place of trajectory fashion domination (fair enough, her best-selling author status and $100+ million dollar company review gives her an edge), but we both forgot what year the Civil War started. 

The only difference seems, I care that I forgot.

She doesn't.
