Vice Week: On Wrath

Here are some things that make me irrationally spitting mad: People walking down the street that don't obey the unspoken laws of the sidewalk, the inefficiency of the MTA and the USPS, overheard conversations better conducted in private, occasionally my sisters, my mother, student loan bills, things that I want that I can't have. I…

Frisky Rant: There’s A Difference Between Being Critical And Being “Too Angry” — Trust Me, I Know

Some of the feedback I get online is that I’m “too angry.” When people tell me I’m “too angry” in my writing, my immediate thought is somewhere along the lines of “HA HA HA HA HA HA YOU HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA.” That’s because I know what “too angry” actually looks and feels like. Whe…

5 Everyday Things That Drive Us Nuts (For No Reason)

We all have pet peeves. We all have rage triggers. For some people, it's loud chewing. For others, it's people who point when they talk. But sometimes, even though our hearts race and our fists clench, we know we're wrong. Or if not wrong, we know we're overreacting. And it just doesn't matter. We can't hel…

Girl Talk: I’m Going Back To Therapy To Deal With My Anger

Last week, my mom and I were on one of our regular "dates," headed to see the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at Discovery Times Square. Times Square is definitely an area of NYC that most New Yorkers try to avoid unless necessary -- it's overrun with tourists, who make it difficult to get to your…

Girl Talk: Finding The Good In Goodbye

About a month ago I was standing in a sandwich shop near my office and my mind went to the place it usually does, which is wondering what I would do if Ex-Mr. Jessica walked in. His office is only 10 blocks away from my own, so there is a very real possibility we may…

Why Am I Such A Jerk To My Husband?

While discussing my New Year's resolutions, I flippantly threw out that I was going to try to be less of a sarcastic jerk when talking to my husband -- you know, for the sake of my kids. Yes, it's true. I have caught my boys -- even the 4-year-old -- using some of my ow…

In Praise Of Angry Sex

Mostly, I'm a girl who mopes when she's upset. I'm not intending to be passive-aggressive: I simply turn inwards when I feel disappointed, sad or hurt. Like many women, none of those feelings leave room for me to feel at all sexual. I simply cannot compartmentalize myself like that. Up until recently, I would have…

Girl Talk: I’m Ridiculously Hard To Date

If you ever met me, you'd probably think I'm a bitch. I wouldn't argue. I like to yell and complain, and I never hesitate to tell someone if I don't like them unless I think I can gain something by keeping my mouth shut. I'm volatile and can go off like a firecracker without a…

Are You A Rage-aholic?

Last week, I was in line at the grocery store. I had just finished a hardcore workout at the gym and was starving, so I popped in to pick up a few things. Meanwhile, my Blackberry was going off … emails, questions, work to be done. My mom was calling. My friends were texting about…

When Will I Stop Being Angry?

So, it’s been a year since I got dumped. Frankly, I would not blame any of you for being at the point of thinking – if not saying – “Why the f**k hasn’t this bitch gotten over this yet?” I wonder the same thing myself. There’s that saying that it takes half the length of…
