4 Retro MTV Dating Shows That Need To Return

One of the highlights of my youth was to pretend to do homework and instead watch the dating shows that aired in the afternoons on MTV. These shows taught me a lot about what single people look for in potential mates such as a nice rack and "fun" personality. Unfortunately the lessons I learned watching these shows have not served me well as I am still single at 22 years … [Read More...]

Step Off The Ledge: Should I Break Up With Someone I Don’t Like Anymore?

Dear Lauren: If you realize you don’t like someone, should you tell them the moment you realize, or wait for an opportunity where it won’t mess up something important going in their lives?

Newsflash: You Will Never Meet a Nice Guy at a Bar

My bestie and I used to go out almost every Friday or Saturday night planning to meet guys. We’d each sit there and wait for men to approach us. Sometimes it happened, but they were nerds who weren’t our type and other times we’d wait all night long to no avail. We mostly went to […]

How to Shop at Anthropologie When You’re Broke

There’s an Anthropologie store right next to my internship, and the other day I decided to go in and poke around to see if there was anything good. I saw lots of stuff I liked, but it was WAY out of my budget. $58 for a single painted wooden bracelet? $128 for a blouse? Well, […]

friends in your twenties leave without reason

Friends In Your Twenties Leave Without Reason

William Shakespeare once said, “A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.” This is one of my favorite quotes about friendship, and maybe it’s because it’s hanging on a wall in my best friends’ room. So […]

This Is How I Became A Casual Drug User And Raver

I think like most people who grew up in the suburbs, my parents always told me not to do drugs.  I grew up in a stable home and didn’t have any major reasons to escape, besides maybe my mom telling me to clean my room when I was willing to eat off the floor.  When […]

The Size of Your Jeans Is Meaningless

“What size are you?” might be one of the most difficult questions asked of a woman. Clothing sizes are almost completely meaningless. I know some people get really sensitive about getting asked this question. Personally, I don’t mind if someone asks me what size I am, unless they are trying to be malicious. You know […]

I’m Tired of People Telling Me Horseback Riding Isn’t a Real Sport

When someone asks me if I play sports, the conversation usually goes a little like this: “Do you play sports?” they say.  “I ride horses,” I reply. “Oh, so the horse does all the work,” they respond. Sigh.  Here we go again, should I be offended? What’s even more degrading than someone demeaning something I […]

Songza is the Coolest Internet Radio Site

I work at a call center and we often play music. We’ve used Spotify and Pandora, both of which are fine music providers, but my favorite Internet radio site is Songza.
