I am 4’11” and I absolutely love it. While it wasn’t always something I liked, these days I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s a part of who I am and really fits my personality. I can sit comfortably in a tiny airplane seat, I can crowd-weave like nobody’s business, and being tiny secretly makes me feel dainty (never thought I would admit that one!), The bottom line is: I like being short. But the strange thing about my height is this phenomenon in which people seem to think I don’t know I’m short. They also believe that it is now their personal job to inform me, in case I hadn’t realized in the past few decades. My height is a part of my persona, but it’s kind of old news to me. It never occurred to me to bluntly inform others of the status of their physical traits, but there is something about being short that makes me an unsolicited opinion magnet. Maybe this happens to tall girls too? Enlighten me.

The thing is that when people make cutesy “short” commentary to me (which usually isn’t meant to be rude) they honestly believe they are the first people to say it. Here are the most common things people say or do to me that they think are oh-so-original. Some are endearing and funny, some are eyeroll-inducing. ALL are overused… Keep reading »

40 Annoying Habits That Will Give Your Coworkers A Nervous Breakdown

In honor of Global Handwashing Day (yes, it’s real holiday!), the Metro UK compiled a list of the five most annoying types of coworkers. Among them were the sick person (who spreads their plague just by setting foot in the office), the feeder (who shows up every day with leftover cookies or birthday cake) the noisy eater (who slurps and sucks and licks their fingers after they eat Dorito’s) the stuff losers (who are always looking for their pen or their shoes) and the Google disbelievers (who still doesn’t know where to look for guidance about how to spell the word I-N-F-U-R-I-A-T-I-N-G).

Really? These sounds pretty innocuous when compared to some of the INFURIATING human beings we’ve worked with. We’ll take the person who brings in cake over the person who announces their bowel movements any day of the work week. Here are the top 40 most annoying coworker habits we’ve encountered. Please note: If you do any of these things, on behalf of the workforce, we beg you to stop before you drive your colleagues insane. Keep reading »

13 Common Misconceptions Couples Have About Singles (And Vice Versa)

Misconceptions Couples Have About Singles And Vice Versa

Couples and singles often view each other with a mix of confusion, suspicion, and, sometimes, straight-up hostility. We all know, deep down, that someone’s relationship status doesn’t define them or instantly turn them into a cliche, but that sure doesn’t stop most of us from making some ridiculous generalizations — even if we’ve personally been on both sides of the coin. Are your married friends sublimely happy all the time just because they’re married? No way! Is your single friend really free to dog sit for you anytime because she has no life? Nope. We wanted to debunk some of these ridiculous misconceptions as a reminder that we’re all on the same team. Here are some of the most common misguided assumptions single people make about couples (and vice versa). Read on to see what assumptions you might be making… Keep reading »

Groupons I would actually use

I used to love Groupon, but lately the offers showing up in my inbox are getting more and more tragic. Five dollars for $15 worth of tempura at the sushi buffet a few suburbs over? No thanks. Half-priced Botox at a “salon” in a converted warehouse? I’ll pass. But all these epic Groupon fails did get me thinking about the kinds of Groupons I would actually be eager to use. Most of them are of the fantasy variety, but hey, a girl can dream. Here are 15 imaginary Groupon deals I would redeem in a hot minute: Keep reading »

Little Details Women Want Their Boyfriends To Remember

No boyfriend is perfect. But when you’ve taken one into your heart, you’ve made a silent vow to accept each other as you are, imperfections, foibles and all. You’ve asked him a quadrillion times to stop leaving his wet towel on the carpet, yet, faithfully, it ends up there after every shower. And each day, you pick it up and hang it on the hook behind the bathroom door because, you know that he will make you scrambled eggs with cheese, just the way you like them, without being asked. This is love. What redeems him for the mildew stain he’s left behind in your bedroom? The little things he remembers that make your heart cartwheel with joy. Remembering things like your anniversary are a given, but other personal details — like the anniversary of your gram’s passing — can mean so much more. Here are a few: Keep reading »

October is country music month — what better time to spread some love for a genre that’s adored by half the country and reviled by the other? Country music is a pretty standard life soundtrack if you live in the South or any rural area, but if you live in a city, especially a super liberal, quinoa-eating, Ralph Nader-voting, Arcade Fire-worshiping one (ahem, Portland), being a country fan can be pretty lonely. In fact, when I lived in Portland, I was convinced I hated country until a couple of my friends basically forced me to listen to it. Now I live in Nashville. Coincidence? Kind of. Mostly. But really, I love country music and am always excited and perhaps overly willing to convince other people to love it too. Wondering how to get your hipster friends on board the country train? Here are some tips… Keep reading »

Ami subscribes to a religion of her own creation called Spiritual Eclecticism. You are all welcome to join, by the way. Winona is a recent convert. It’s a non-denominational and free-form cult of one. The only requirement is that you regularly engage in rituals of your choosing for guidance and comfort. They can be adapted from New Age practices, religious ceremony or something funny you saw on “South Park.” The only caveat is that you feel a genuine connection with them. No need to wait for Halloween to stand out in the woods and summon the spirits of your ancestors — or whatever gets you there. In Spiritual Eclecticism, you practice your unique rituals year-round. Here are a few of our favorites to get you started. Feel free to rip them off or invent your own. It’s your world. Keep reading »

10 Redeeming Qualities That Make Unbearable People Bearable

Redeeming Qualities That Make Unbearable People Bearable

Some human connections are deep, complex, and endlessly rewarding. And then some  fall at the other end of the spectrum: the people in our lives who we find irritating, boring, or abrasive — the stoner we’re on a date with, the annoying coworker who snort-laughs, the great uncle who insists Obama was born in Kenya. However, there’s a catch to these take ‘em or leave ‘em people in our lives — one small detail can be enough to tip the scales from irritation to love. Discovering that random redeeming quality is all it takes to go from “I wouldn’t be sad if I never saw you again” to “Dude, I just realized I am obsessed with you.” These epiphanies can come in the form of an unexpected talent, an idiosyncrasy, or a wild band camp story. Here are a few examples of qualities that can transform a person… Keep reading »

Meditative Beauty Rituals

When I went on a makeup hiatus, one of the most unexpected epiphanies I had was that I actually missed the time I spent getting ready in the mornings. Not because I enjoyed getting up early or repeatedly poking myself in the eye with a mascara brush, but because having some time set aside every morning to look myself in the eye (via the mirror) and get mentally prepared for my day was surprisingly centering. When I thought more about it, I realized that my morning makeup routine wasn’t the only beauty ritual that I find to be strangely meditative. Here are eight more… Keep reading »
