Good Reads Mailing List | 2005 week 1 number 2 (a letter from her father)

Prada Princess is the moniker and blog of an anonymous New Yorker, who recently came into a substantial trust fund and is obsessed with Lindsay Lohan. Her blog chronicles her problems with her family, her attempts to buy property rather than continue to “waste money on rent”, and more than one entry is in response to the nasty comments she receives for being such a rich bitch. Her father, understandably, is dismayed, concerned as he is about his daughter’s irresponsibility. Prada Princess has shown herself to be thin skinned, superficial, compassionless, and not that bright, and her father has written her a letter, which she has posted on her blog. – Timothy


A letter from my Father | Prada Princess
“Besides your indolent treatment of your finances and family, my other chief concerns is the way you treat your time which is more valuable than any amount of money in the world. Money can be lost and gained but time can only be lost. I lie awake at night with this fear that you will not have found your way and end up becoming a spinster who lives alone with her 20 cats becoming bitter and angry with the realization that any opportunity to create meaning in your life is long past. Your trust fund does not give you the right to do anything you want. It is an actually responsibility that has been given to you. And you are failing miserably in fulfilling it. As parents we have failed in raising you properly and now your life is entirely out of our hands and we are helpless to to assist you. […] I beg of you to please wake up and think very hard about who you are and what you are doing with your life besides focusing on dreams that will never come to fruition. You have many years ahead of you, please you use them in a productive manner and review your life. The last thing I want to do is compare you to your older sister. But my heart wells with great pride with her accomplishments. I am not telling you to become a doctor, get married to a lawyer and raise a family in Palos Verdes. If you yearn to become a doctor and get married then do it. If you desire to become an English teacher at Exeter that’s fantastic too. But on this New Year please pick a path and walk it.”
