  • Single Girl Society: “It’s Complicated” But We Don’t Need To Know That

  • 5 Things You Should Never Do On Facebook

    Back in the day (when I still had a MySpace account) Facebook was a brand new platform for social opportunity and getting to know people in college. I remember the days when my status was restricted by the word "is" and I only had 50 pictures tagged of myself at graduation parties and I thought I was super rad. Suddenly, My Space turned into the Britney Spears white trash of all social networks and I was spending the majority of my time on the blue and white pages of Facebook.

  • One Month Challenge: Giving Up Gossiping, Week 2

    And so ends my first full week of no gossip.... and it was pretty tough. I would go to tell my family, friends, or boyfriend something and before I even opened my mouth I would have to ask myself if it was gossip. A lot of times, it would be, so I would have to stop, come up with another topic and start over.

  • The 9 Friends You Avoid At All Costs

    We're all well aware of the friends every girl needs, but what about the friends nobody wants? Is there anything more annoying than having to avoid a friend that you hate?

  • Facebook Is Ruining Everything

    Facebook is the hallmark of our generation. It's usually a good way to see what your friends (or acquaintances, or enemies...) are up to and a good way to kill some time.

  • Your “Ta Ta, 2009″ To-Do List

    Ah, the new year is upon us, ladies. I absolutely LOVE this time of year, when everything feels so fresh and full of promise (or is that just the fact that I finally have my mom to clean my dirty laundry?). But, as tempting as it is to delete the old year like last week's Nip/Tuck season finale, there are still some (very valuable) days left in 2009.

  • Facebook Wall of Shame: No One Cares

    Everyone has that one friend who is a habitual Facebook status updater. Their life is an open book for all of their cyber friends to read. As if people care that you are at the gym right now or cleaning out your earwax. There are some things better left un-updated. And there are some places and times when it’s not OK to update either.

    I am going to have a sit down with my Facebook friends list and carefully consider who belongs there, who does not, and which family members need to be moved to the "Limited Profile" list.

  • Life After College: Back-To-School But Not For Me

    Lately it seems like Facebook is on a mission (aided by the company that sells prozac) to make me feel suicidal every time I sign on. For weeks all the status updates and albums were "lovin' summer" and "will it ever stop raining this summer?" I could easily relate to those as I was also experiencing summer and the torrential rain showers of '09.
