I Have Small Boobs … So What?

Boobs – we all have them. Some are gigantic, some are barely there. Some are 100% real and others are fake. While some of us can fill out bras, some of us need a little push up enhancement. In a big breast lovin’ society, it can be hard out there for a girl with a smaller chest. But I’m not going to lie – I love my small boobs!

Why Feminism Works For Me

I wear push-up bras and high heels. I go gaga for lip gloss and lipstick, nail polish, and heavy eye-make up . And I'm not even going to lie, I'm a sucker for pouty boys that call me ma'am. But besides my affinity for sundresses, pearls, and men in ties, I'm a feminist. In fact, I've always considered myself to be one. But despite my own declaration in the fight for gender equality, this doesn't seem possible to people.

Birthday Faves: 21 Things I Learned in My 21st Year

Just last February, I was planning my 21st birthday party. Now, I’m facing 22 (or as I like to call it 21+1) straight on. Even though the last twelve months have gone by, it feels like just yesterday I was indulging in jello shots and margaritas. For my 21st. Because just yesterday I was indulging in jello shots and margaritas.

Stop Hating on Ke$ha – She Is Who We R

While I can understand why some people don't stand behind her gold tooth, nose ring, obsession with body paint, catchy techno pop beats, and copious amounts of glitter references in her songs, I can't understand how people (especially college girls) don't want to dance along with her. Ke$ha is the ultimate college girl!

The Post Grad Journey: “What Do You Want To Be?”

I think it's interesting how when you are younger people tell you that you can be anything you want to be, or anything that you will set your mind to. Although we all wish this was true, that's not always the case. Come adulthood, people get caught up in stereotypes and expectations. And quite frankly, I'm sick of it.

Even though Christmas is on Saturday, I honestly couldn't care less this year. With everyone around me so happy and festive, I feel like the odd-woman-out. However, I think I have a decent excuse. Instead of “Jingle Bell Rock” in my head and busy days spent shopping at the mall, I'm singing the Student Loan Blues while staring at my empty bank account.

The Post-Grad Journey: Screw You, Self-Help!

If you google “life after college” or anything related to being a post-grad, tons of self-help websites and survival guides appear. And even though I write a column about being a post-grad, I can’t help but find this to be incredibly annoying.

The Post-Grad Journey: It’s Time for the LSAT!

Some people train for marathons – spending every day building their endurance, improving their time, and practicing so they will be able to cross the finish line. I’ve been spending the last five months doing all of the above, but I’m definitely not running a marathon anytime soon. Instead, I’m taking the LSAT … this coming Saturday.
