Recently, a friend sent me a link to a YouTube video called “Can Men and Women Just Be Friends?” I rolled my eyes. I hate that question. It’s heteronormative and sexist, and yet, I clicked anyway.

The video has more than 5 million views. In it, women on a college-campus all say, “Yes! Of course men and women can be friends.” But the college-aged men aren’t sure. They report always wanting “something more.” The women also admit that many of their male friends have crushes on them. Watching, I squirmed in my seat. The video hints at some unnamed truth in the male/female friendship dynamic: the male friend who is in love with you, who you kind of lead on but who you do love, in some way.

January's Luckiest Days!

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): If you need to lie down, whine, or throw a temper tantrum, go ahead. This is your time to let it all out and indulge in some scream therapy if you have to. As it goes, the more theatrics you put out, the more emotions you will release, and the more information the world will have in order to properly adjust itself around you. So, put on a show and sell it out!

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): Gamble with what you have and let the chips fall where they may. There is no more time to waste on the what ifs, as there is no way to ever know unless you walk through that fire and see the situation from a realistic point of view. After all, there is still a lot more information you may never know, until you get closer to it. Keep reading »

Leo Epstein: “Most likely to become a billionaire recluse a la Willy Wonka.” This is what I was voted in my high school yearbook. Although, now that I think about it, to be “voted” this title seems highly unlikely, and my guess is that the 2003 yearbook editor took some very generous editorial liberties in these pages.

I had forgotten all about this until I was organizing my closet last weekend, when I came across my old yearbook. Most likely to become a billionaire recluse a la Willy Wonka? What in the hell did that even mean? How had I merited such a weird future? And while the billionaire portion of the prediction seemed cool, the thought of living a solitary life in a uniform of top hats and velour tuxedo jackets wasn’t what I had in mind. This designation—was it a compliment or an insult? Keep reading »
