As long as I can remember, I haven’t liked change. I preferred to be unhappy or uncomfortable in routine rather than try something new because I was scared or didn’t know the outcome.

In 2009, after two years in non-profit media, rather than look for something new that put my journalism degree to use, I jumped at the chance of a promotion within the company.

Fast forward to 2011, and I was deeply unhappy with my position in Development. Keep reading »

9 Better Applications Of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Than To Military Personnel

Woo hoo! At exactly 12:01 a.m. this morning, the Pentagon repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the Clinton-era policy that said gays and lesbians could serve in the military as long as they kept their personal life a secret. Finally, the military has let go of this ridiculous policy—which led gay military personnel to have to weave intricate lies to cover up their sexuality and face discharge if they were outed—and adopted a zero tolerance policy toward anti-gay behavior. This morning, we got to read all sorts of heartwarming stories—like about Navy Lt. Gary Ross, who married his partner of 11 years at midnight as the policy was repealed. “This is Gary’s official coming out,” the justice of the peace said during the ceremony. [Slate, Newser]

The Most Important Things We Learned In College

In college, you learn many things. A smattering of organic chemistry principles and formulas. An assortment of historic dates, and what exactly happened to lead to the events that went down on them. Not to mention the plots to, oh, 10 or so books per semester of an English class. Those things are awesome. But I think most of us agree that the bigger things you learn in college won’t ever be found on a midterm. After the jump, The Frisky staff shares the most important things we learned from our college experiences. Keep reading »

Taylor Swift Lives Life Likes She’s 80

“Live your life like you’re 80 looking back on your teenage years. You know if your dad calls you at eight in the morning and asks if you want to go to breakfast? As a teenager you’re like no, I want to sleep. As an 80-year-old looking back, you have that breakfast with your dad. It’s just little things like that that helped me when I was a teenager in terms of making the choices you won’t regret later.”

Taylor Swift tells PopSugar the best life advice she ever got. Wow, perhaps this explains how she is so darn composed at the age of 21. I mean, if I was as mature as she was when I hit legal drinking age, I would have taken over the world by now. [PopSugar] Keep reading »
