Meet Winter Raymond, Overachiever

Women’s magazines often make women feel inadequate. That’s, like, what they do. But seldom do they make us feel quite so inadequate as September’s Elle, which features a woman called Winter Raymond:

When 27-year-old Winter Raymond isn’t slogging through her third year of law school in Boston, she’s in Seoul, Korea, juggling a law firm internship, a fledgling company (Seoulplay, a concierge service for business travelers she launched last year) and burgeoning TV stardom on the Korean answer to The Dating Game, in which she hits the town with famous comedians.

Really? How is that even possible? It’s like she’s one of those characters from Heroes. Also she apparently does all this wearing $1,500 Jimmy Choo sandals and carrying a $2,595 Gucci bag. We, on the other hand, can’t even put on earrings in the morning (the effort makes us nauseated). We totally hated her immediately. Then we saw a clip of her on Korean TV show Hello, Monday Night.

We have no idea what she’s saying, but we’re totally charmed.
