I bet you didn’t think there was anything good about getting cheated on, huh?

I know what you’re thinking… how could I possibly learn anything from getting cheated on? You can though. Take it from me… the minute you get passed the fact that he cheated on you, you’re able to see the beauty in… READ MORE »

This was a year of changes, challenges and questions, and that made it full of unexpected lessons. Some realizations I had this year should probably have already been obvious to me, some I wish I’d never learned at all, and some came as a huge relief. A few of observations from 2014 that I’ll keep… READ MORE »

Did this year’s experiences teach you anything about yourself that you didn’t expect? I learned that I’m more resilient than I thought, that I can actually make a good pie crust, that I’m more productive in the morning than at night, that I will never willingly wear harem pants, and that I can find the… READ MORE »

Most of us enter the working world pretty ill-prepared for the harsh realities of office life. Even college isn’t much of an education in that regard; hell, arguably the most valuable thing one learns in college is how to bullshit your way through a class you didn’t do the reading for — a life skill with many… READ MORE »

Say what you want about Kim Kardashian; she’s brainless or talentless or a complete marketing genius. Whether you love her or hate her, she’s tapped into the zeitgeist in a way that no one else has in recent years. But I’m less concerned with why we’re so fascinated with her–she’s rich, she has drama, she’s… READ MORE »

It just so happens that two of my all-time favorite movies are both celebrating their 20th Anniversary today. “The Shawshank Redemption” made me laugh, cry, and truly appreciate the legendary acting of one Mr. Morgan Freeman. On the other hand, “Pulp Fiction” opened my eyes to the genius behind Quentin Tarantino’s directing and taught me… READ MORE »

You know those moments when your conscious mind separates from the body and you briefly become an observer of your own actions? You watch your lips move and hear yourself rambling on and on, lecturing your younger coworker about life. You’re horrified at how cynical you sound, but you can’t stop yourself. It is in… READ MORE »

When I graduated from college almost 10 years ago, I remember breathing a huge sigh of relief. Finally, I thought, I’d arrived at the finish line and could begin the new, exciting chapter in my life. I walked (well, more like rolled, considering I’m in a wheelchair) across that stage to proudly accept my diploma,… READ MORE »

After being in a relationship for 10 years, Nick and I have gotten pretty damn good at dealing with relationship-related issues. We are still learning, of course, and probably always will be, but when it comes to the challenges that arise from sharing a life with someone, we’ve got a solid handle on it. Balancing… READ MORE »

For three years, I woke up at 4 a.m. every day. I spent two days a week as a full-time student; one of those, I was at school from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and the other I split with one of my five weekly eight-hour work shifts. I did all of the driving in… READ MORE »

I worked at Whole Foods for almost four years, the majority of which I spent in the bakery as a cake decorator in a fun, busy suburban store. It had some serious ups and downs and a variety of challenges that were unique to the company and their customer demographic. I’m glad I had the… READ MORE »

Today a very special day, friends. It’s Connie Britton’s birthday! To say we love Connie would be a massive understatement. We are ridiculously obsessed with Connie. As Tami Taylor, she gave us the mother/best friend/wife/sister we always wanted. As Rayna James, she became our new favorite fictional country singer. As Vivien Harmon on the first… READ MORE »

2013 was a pretty big year for me. I turned 28. I moved across the country. I started doing art again. I got a Twitter reply from Wynonna Judd. But most importantly, 2013 was the year that a shit ton of really important, embarrassingly simple life lessons finally clicked. You know how you can hear… READ MORE »

Not to sound like a fall cliche of a human being, but this weekend I went apple picking on a small farm in New England. And as these activities which snap you out of your everyday routine tend to, apple picking led to my own mini-spiritual awakening. As I was harvesting my bushel of fruit… READ MORE »

Out of every bright star in the overcrowded reality TV sky, I have to say that Angela “Big Ang” Raiola is my absolute favorite. I discovered Big Ang one afternoon, slumped on the couch after a very late night, scrolling thru the deep, dark corners of Hulu. Settling on Mob Wives, I was greeted with a… READ MORE »

I will just come out and say it, because this is a safe space — Adam Levine is my secret guilty pleasure and celebrity crush. The hair, the inscrutable tattoos, that reedy, breathy falsetto — he’s the dude that induces eye-rolling at the beginning of the night, but at last call, you’re taking him home. READ MORE »
