Don’t Fake It.

When you’re Rory Gilmore, money doesn’t matter. Like, you can be completely terrible at your low-paying job in a dying field and still manage to scrape up enough cash to make frequent international trips. It must be nice.

We’re betting you are much better at your job. We’ll give you the benefit of the doubt there. And while you might not necessarily have the cash or free time to gallivant overseas at the drop of a hat, you can still have plenty of fun much closer to home this week.
