As of late, I’ve entered a brand new world of pretty things. And by pretty things, I mean clothes and make-up.
I’ve always had a minimal routine in the mornings. In the past I’ve thrown on jeans and a t-shirt before class and put on some mineral powder. [read more]
I’d like to talk about what happens when you lie to yourself.
I don’t mean The Pizza Lie, when you put two pieces of pizza on top of each other and pretend it’s really one slice. Or The Shoe Lie, when the shoe in question is actually a size too small but you make yourself believe that it fits because they are so fabulous and match your new top. [read more]
I’d like to share something with the women (and men) who visit this page. It’s something that I know everyone else experiences. And it makes my blood boil.
I’m friends with mostly guys. And they have a lot to learn in the sexism and equality department, even though they honestly think themselves to be totally respectful of women. They all know I consider myself a feminist, but they can’t get through their skulls that men can be feminists as well. One of them has actually stated that men cannot be feminists and he thinks feminists are too extreme. I feel like if I regulated his testicles and gave him a 20% pay cut, he’d probably be just as militant as he thinks we are. But that’s a story for another time. [read more]

Can I just rave about Frozen?
I’m going to rave about Frozen.

Dear Nick Adams,
Firstly, click on the gifs. They really do a great job of illustration.
Secondly, I’d like to congratulate you on the publication of your most recent book, American Boomerang. I’m aware that it isn’t your first book and that writing a one takes an enormous amount of patience and persistence, so hats off to you. You certainly have diligence. [read more]
Not that long ago we posted an article about how Keenan Thompson didn’t think that WoC (Women of Color) were ready for SNL. This led to a skit in November that showed Kerry Washington illustrating the exhaustion of portraying Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Beyoncé . The skit included a humorous disclaimer stating that SNL’s lack of black women in the cast was ‘not an ideal situation’, which I appreciated because it was a candid response to the problem.

I have spent the vast majority of my life being an overachieving perfectionist. Such a negative description, but sadly true. Part of it is genetic, but sometimes we encounter environmental factors that push us over the edge and straight down to Crazy Town, Nebraska. My push?
Mononucleosis. I never thought I would be defeated by a virus, but neither did Neighbor 406 in Zombieland. It’s supposed to be relatively harmless. Sleep for a week and you’ll be fine, right?
