    Bee When I came to New York City, I was engaged to the man of my dreams and I was ready to take the marketing industry by storm. But now? I'm single and working at a dead-end job with a pervy boss. It's official-this city kicked my a**. It's time to pack my bags.

The nickname probably comes from the fact that they're exorbitantly wealthy. Old wealth. The kind that isn't flaunted around. But you can tell by the way they carry themselves. Or maybe the name just refers to the fact that they're so beautiful it's almost hard to look at them. No matter the reason for their nickname, it's an ironic one. I've only been going to this school for a week, and I already want to...read more

    The easiest way to get over someone is to never see them again, right? So when my ex stomps on my heart and throws it into the ocean...I decide to spend my summer on the opposite side of the country.
