Oprah Is Chillaxing Hard Now That She’s 60 (Well, As Much As Oprah Can Chillax)

“What’s great about 60 is you are through with the bullshit — it means you are really and truly through. Now, Camille Cosby had told me at 40 that happens, but 40 you’re still … in the race, you’re still competitive. And at 50, you’re still like, ‘Do I need to?’ 60? You are chilled. You…

31 Reasons Why December Birthdays Suck

We’re reposting this listicle from last year because, surprise, surprise, Ami feels just annoyed with her December birthday as ever.

Beyoncé Excited To Turn 30, Starting To Think About Babies

“I’m gonna be 30. I can’t wait because 29 is very strange. You’re still in your 20s but you feel like you’re supposed to be 30, and I feel like a woman. I feel like 30 is the ideal age because you’re mature enough to know who you are and to have your boundaries and…

What I Wish I’d Known Before I Turned 25

This past Sunday was my 25th birthday. While I don’t think of 25 as old, I definitely think of it as getting older, as I am now closer to 30 than 20.

At this sort of “in-between” moment, I got to thinking about what a difference five years can make.

I’m a completely…

I have big plans for my birthday this month. BIG ones. Wanna hear them? OK, I’m gonna sit at home in my pajamas, eat chocolate cake, and watch reruns of “The Gilmore Girls.”

Girl Talk: Going To Las Vegas For My 21st Birthday … With My Dad

When I was about 10 years old, my dad made me promise that—as soon as I turned 21—the two of us would go on a father/daughter trip to Las Vegas. The pact stipulated that it would be just him and me making our way to Sin City—it would not include any kind of boyfriend, or…

What’s So Special About Being 17?

I just turned 21, and to me that is the climax of birthday celebrations. I am now legally allowed to do almost anything in the United States—except rent a car, for some reason.

29 Things You’re Too Old For As Of Your 29th Birthday

One of the biggest time sucks on the internet for me, besides reading “Lost” theories and playing online Scrabble, is reading dating columnist and “lifecaster” Julia Allison’s blog, as well as the blog that mocks her mercilessly, Reblogging NonSociety. I have no excuse; I just find the whole thing entertaining and hilarious, and it’s not…
