I had been dating Jared a few weeks when my friends started questioning whether or not I’d made him up.
Jared was the awesome boyfriend they only heard about and never met. He cooked for me, we loved the same TV shows, he looked great in pajamas, we had great chemistry, and we could laugh for hours. There was only one problem with our relationship: I couldn’t stand him once we were out of the comfort of our living rooms. Read more … Keep reading »
“I wouldn’t want to be 20 now. I know so much more, and I’m much more comfortable in my skin, saggy as it is. … When I hear young girls complaining about superficial things … You’re at the peak of your physical beauty right now!

It wasn’t meant to go this way.

This was, no doubt, because my favorite TV reruns – like “The Brady Bunch” and “8 Is Enough” – made it look like all fun and giggles to have scads of siblings to play with. Turns out I was wrong. According to a new report from Understanding Society, a study tracking 100,000 people in 40,000 households in Britain, children without any siblings are happier, and the more siblings children have, the unhappier they become. The individuals surveyed cited the following reasons why: bullying by siblings, lack of privacy/space, and competition for parental attention.

Or to convince Michelle Duggar to tie those tubes already. [The Guardian] Keep reading »
