Into the woods! Into the woods!
It's scientifically proven.
What - you never noticed before?
You go, Amy!
This month, Lisa Belkin, a writer for The New York Times’ Motherlode blog, wrote about her own disbelief and utter shock towards the following message sent by the Sigma Nu fraternity of Duke University: “Hey Ladies, Whether your dressing up as a slutty nurse, a slutty doctor, a slutty schoolgirl or just a slut, we invite you…” Lisa Belkin admitted to being stunned by the message.
No, I’m not talking about moving home with your parents, which I fully support. The New York Times recently published an article about the current trend of parents purchasing shiny new NYC apartments for their kids as a graduation present.
After months of studying and working my post-grad ass off for the LSAT, I finally got my score.
Earlier this week, the New York Times posted one of their chuckle-worthy trend pieces on how the look of Seinfeld icon Elaine Benes is suddenly de rigeur among fashionistas.
I am the perfect product of a 20-something generation. I am 23 years old, I've graduated college, I'm single and I live at home with my parentals (wow, typing it in a sentence just made me realize how pathetic it all sounds). I'm doing a bit of freelance blogging and slowly looking for jobs (by slowly I mean sifting through jobs that don't give me a heartbeat and leaving my energy for the ones I truly love).
There are some things you shouldn't fake but you do anyway. We've all done it. I did it last night. Heavy breathing, a little writhing, a moan or two, and you're got yourself a straight up 'big O.' Hey I just wanted to get some sleep, I was too damn tired for a marathon sex sesh.
Not only does college leave me stumped in my latest lecture, the daily grind leaves me scratching my head as well. Especially when it comes to my questionable relationships with men boys. Countless hours spent over-analyzing his latest text, the way he touched my arm in the bar, and how many days it took him to finally pitch me a Facebook message... It's exhausting.
I know that if I don't clock in at least thirty minutes of cardio per session, I feel like my gym outing has been a waste and a failure. And I'm always hard on myself if I leave without doing crunches, even if I've run a couple of miles. In short -- going to the gym has become about the time clock, but according to a study published in the New York Times, I'm going about things all wrong!
For the past few months I’ve been talking your ear off about why the earth is in trouble and how you can go green to save our environment. And while it’s great to do whatever you can to protect the planet, there is such a thing as caring a little too much. According to the New York Times, there has been an increasing amount of people that report anxiety and stress because they feel like they are never as green as they would like to be.
Ever wonder why those treacherous treadmill sessions haven't turned you into the next Gisele? Are you one of those people who thinks that you can eat a slice of pizza after leaving the gym because the body is supposed to burn more fat on days that you exercise? Well, step away from the pizza, woman.
Elementary school sure has changed since we were kids. Today, recess is getting shorter, cafeterias are getting healthier, and Halloween is getting much, much less fun.
If you’ve read any news blogs or even watched a televised newscast in the last week and a half, chances are that you’ve heard the tragic story of Annie Le, the Yale grad student who disappeared ten days ago. Her body was found hidden inside a wall at the building where she worked last Sunday—which was to have been her wedding day. Now a lab technician named Raymond Clark has been charged with Annie’s murder.
Too many times, my running activity is hindered by pain. After numerous doctor's visits and trips to the physical therapist, I've learned that chondromalacia patella or "Runner's Knee" is the cause. This is when your knee cap rubs against one side of the knee joint ... ugh, I just cringe at the thought of it.
So you’re determined to get those rock-hard, washboard, Jessica Alba abs. And you even stepped up the intensity of your workout by increasing those crunches and sit-ups to ensure that your stomach is flat in no time. Well, its time to stop that. Right now.
So I was reading the news the other day--you know, the usual depressing stuff about the economy and my freakshow state government--when I came across an item that made me literally spit out my iced chai in bewildered shock.
Although we gals have pushed, yelled and fought for our rights for decades, it’s an unfortunate fact that men dominate a number of professions in the U.S. (and often make more money than women doing the same things). Can we imagine a world where estrogen ruled, women weren’t subjected to workplace prejudices, and men were delegated to diaper duty?
Demonstrations and riots broke out in the city of Tehran last week when voting results confirmed that the conservative candidate Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had defeated former prime minister Mir Hussein Moussavi. The protesters, many of whom are women, believe that Ahmadinejad was re-elected unfairly and through a corrupt voting process.
Always looking for new ways to curb your appetite and shed those stubborn pounds? Now that bikini season’s among us (or at least among those of us that don’t live on the East Coast, where it’s been raining for about 10 days now), finding a way to cut calories and look good on the beach is on everyone’s mind. Enter Sensa.
If your internship is anything like mine, not every hour in your 9-5 day is filled with important tasks and urgent errands. Although I certainly have things to keep me occupied, a less than full schedule can make the time spent in your little cubicle feel awfully long and completely brutal.
Everybody’s doing it. There’s different types, names, and ways to do it. Two girls, one guy. One girl, one guy. Two guys. You name it, it happens. And according to New York City’s most trusted paper, this oh-so unusual and odd act causes “peer pressure,” and is leaving parents “baffled.” That’s right everybody, we’re talking about hugging.
We all know that eating right, exercising, drinking lots of water (not excessive amounts of alcohol), and not smoking increase your health and your chances of living longer overall. But let's be honest--how many of us actually do all those things, all of the time?
The New York Times is reporting on a new study of American media consumption that says the average person spends 8.5 hours every day in front of some sort of media screen (television, computer, cellphone, etc.).
