Magazine Fetishes...Cause That's Normal

Once upon a time ago I used to be obsessed with buying magazines...the only real reason I stopped is the stupid word called budget. 

You know you are an adult when you are weighing the cost benefit of buying a magazine versus buying food. My top three favorite magazines were always Shape, Cosmopolitan and Vanity Fair. To this day I still get delighted to fly just to buy the stupid magazines...yes I know you can read it all online but to me it just isn't the same.

I wouldn't even be home yet and nearly every quiz in my Cosmopolitan magazine would be complete...stupid Austin favorite were the couples quizzes and the sex quizzes. I never. NEVER. seemed to get the answers I wanted so I always did the quiz twice: once to see what sort of partner I was and then once to get the answer I really wanted. When it was all said and done I would claim the magazine was full of sh*t and wonder why I even bought it. Then next month do it all over again...signs of an addict.

Now I secretly get excited to wait in the longest line at the grocery store in order to 'take' the quiz, determine my results and then return the magazine to the shelf all before the person in front of me finishes checking out. Am I the only one worried that the cashier might tell me I have to buy it if they see me reading the same magazine for too long...I am weird...whatever.

But today I didn't have to choose the longest line, hide my magazine fetish or cheat on cosmo quizzes! Erin over at Two Thirds Hazel has created a fun link up called the Blogmopolitan Quiz and as soon as I saw it yesterday float through my bloglovin feed I knew I had to fill one out for myself. And yes I might have changed my answers a few times...some habits just don't die!

After rereading my quiz I realized I obviously had booze on the brain, so its time to trade the mister a kiss for a boozy drink and do a little relaxing before Saturday School tomorrow.

Hope you have an awesome weekend!

  1. I could have easily written this exact post. We are so the same. Are you obsessed with Buzzfeed quizzes too? I sometimes take them twice when I don't like my first answer! I'm definitely doing this!

  2. I love taking the Cosmo quizzes too - but I have the same reason for why I don't get piles of magazines anymore each month. Budgets are such a boring part of adult life.
