Magazines
Momoka Sasaki/Staff

Magazines were some of the first forms of entertainment. You could get the latest fashion tips right at your doorstep. Or you could figure out what your next garden project would be while waiting at the dentist’s office.

I remember being a little girl wondering why Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie were on every magazine cover leading up to the grocery store checkout. The type of magazine you gravitated toward could also show what kind of friend you are in real life. Take this quiz and find out what magazine you are most like and how it translates to your life relationships!
