"126 posts, 62,321 words, 5 new pairs of shoes, and a couple of romances later, I have to ask myself, 'Am I now a Cosmo Girl?'Whew. Sounds like she's still got her head on straight. But what now? As a commenter helpfully negs, "Keep striving to be better!" (We're glad she's not a full-fledged Cosmogirl, anyway—it has no future. What do you do as one? Marry an i-banker?) [The Making of a Cosmo Girl]
Before I can answer, I have to admit that my conception of the “Cosmo Girl” was a tad unrealistic from the start. I saw a flawless woman who was so beautiful and sexy that she had boys begging to date her. She also had money, success, and fame. I came to realize that being a "Cosmo Girl" isn’t about all of that. It’s about being fun, fearless, getting in touch with your sexy side (even when you don’t have a man!), loving your friends, kicking ass at your job, and having dreams and goals. In a nutshell—being passionate about making your life the best it can be."
