A few months ago, I used a fake $10 knock-off Longchamp bag to carry my things because it was big enough to fit my laptop. While I tried to own it – “Yeah, haha, it's a fake,” – I couldn’t. I still feel the sting of embarrassment when I look at it, or when I see a girl on the train with a real one.
Neopets is the greatest kids’ game website ever. It taught me almost everything I needed to know about the world. While I learned nothing in my high school math class, I learned all about the stock market while restocking my shop playing Neopets.
