Looking up '50 Surreal Places To Visit Before You Die' does not make you one. Neither do trips to Bangkok and Ladakh. The word you're looking for is aspirational, like the rest us.
Yeah right! If you bothered to update your bio on Twitter, you are anything but that.
Wake up. Your bio says that your mind wanders. Nobody cares.
As opposed to a mama who is not proud?

Just because you have a food blog and eat out four times a week doesn't mean you're a foodie.
PASSIONATE ABOUT LIFE

Of course you endorse them! You think inappropriate tweets are cool and want them on your profile.
