The word therapy conjures an image of a serious man with a steno pad taking notes while a patient reclines on a black, leather couch, talking about her childhood. I’ve been to therapy a bunch of times and never once have I reclined. One of my therapists was a tough talking Texan who threw a Kush ball with me as we spoke. Another was a completely bald little person who drank protein shakes and gave me existential philosophy CDs to listen to. Yet another liked to write possible solutions to my problems on a dry erase board.
While there are therapists who employ the whole reclining on the black, leather couch while you talk about your childhood thing, that’s only one kind of psychotherapeutic treatment available. If you’re not into that (I know I’m not!), don’t let it stop you from seeking out some support for your issues. There are many, many other approaches and types of therapy available. Depending on your personal preferences and what kind of issues you might want to tackle, you’ve got options. Many, many options. So many, that I’m only going to tell you about a few. Click on through for a very abridged breakdown of some of the most popular types of therapy available.

You know how sometimes you’re like, “Yo, whatever happened to that guy who played simpering Billy Campbell on ‘Melrose Place’?” And then it turns out that Billy Campbell is actually Andrew Shue, and Andrew Shue is the founder of Do Something, an organization that encourages people to, presumably, Do Something to make the world a better place. Every year, Andrew and pals host the Do Something Awards, which honors people who have really Done Something extraordinary, and a slew of celebs come out to fete them. (Including, presumably, his old “Melrose Place” castmates, who go, “Oh, so that’s what Andrew’s been up to!”)
Now that we’ve cleared that up: The 2012 Do Something Awards were held Sunday night, and here’s what everyone wore.
I like to think I love animals as much as the next gal, but to be honest, a lot of them scare the shit out of me. And I hate to admit it, but my fear is often based purely on looks. I am so shallow. For example, I think bears, which could kill me with just one swipe of their paw, are adorable — I just want to cuddle them! But an Aye-Aye, despite being totally harmless, sends horrified shivers down my spine. That’s why this slideshow is made up of the scariest-looking animals in the world, not necessarily the most fearsome. I’m so terrified of these 12 animals, I am actually angry about it. You’ve been warned.
I don’t know why, but I picture Lana Del Rey as having the personality and the voice of Kristen Wiig’s “Saturday Night Live” character “Sexy Shanna” — the “sexy” secretary with the high-pitched Marilyn Monroe-ish voice who’s kind of a dumb vixen. I’m not saying she’s actually like that, but something about her affect makes me think she’s a pretty girl who farts a lot.
She’s the star of the new H&M fall ad campaign, and while the shots are beautiful, some of her poses are cracking me up. Check out her looks — and our captions — after the jump!
I’m five feet tall, okay? Let’s just get it out in the open there. And while I don’t find heels to be terribly uncomfortable, I do find them to be terribly inconvenient, especially given my subway commute and my natural propensity to fall all over myself all the time. My height doesn’t particularly bother me — in fact, I forget how short I am until I’m standing next to someone who I perceive as tall, i.e. normal — but it does make me look a considerable amount younger than I am. Like … let’s say 12? Lately I’ve found myself craving a bit of height without the physical hindrances that come with a sick pair of pumps, so I’ve turned to booties with a small stacked heel to get the job done. They also hold your foot in so you’re not slipping and sliding everywhere, which is always a good thing, especially when you’re me. Whether you’re closer to my height or Iman’s, these 10 pairs will give you a bit of a boost, but are still comfortable enough to see you through the workday in style.
