Why You Should…Stop Texting

I love texting. It is perhaps my favorite invention next to the internet (how can that not be everyone's favorite invention??). My love has gotten to the point where I send out about a hundred text messages a day, but only make phone calls every couple of days. That got me thinking...what happened to my voice?

Harvard Hits The Runway

Although it's a pleasure usually reserved for high school students and younger, I still get excited about what to wear on the first day of school. In college, nobody cares what you wear to class (as exemplified by the large numbers of sweatpants and over-sized t-shirts I see in the lecture halls), but I still like that feeling of picking out a special outfit and preparing myself for another semester.

Celebretard Showdown: Kanye West vs. John Mayer

This installment of Celebretard Showdown could easily be called The Douchebag Edition, considering our subjects. Who is more pretentious? Who has talent and who just has a big mouth? So many questions, so little time (let's face it: there's only so much time you can spend reading Kanye West quotes before losing all faith in humanity and wanting to smash something).

No Twitter = Life In Shambles

Oh. Em. Gee. Twitter is down today. I click on that cute little blue "t" in my favorites and nothing happens. Nothing! That means no one will know what I'm eating for lunch.

Why You Should…Be Naked

I love clothes. I have a closet full (or three). My love borders on an unhealthy addiction (so says my parents and the credit card company, but bah!), however...I also love being naked. No, that does not mean I love being naked with other naked people. I like being naked by myself. Just watching TV or reading a book or, even better, taking a nap.

Dear College: I Want My Money Back

After four years of attending a Big 10 school, I am now in big time debt. I'll be in even more debt after I return for yet another semester. Do I have a job? No. Has my university made good on their promise to hook me up with sweet career options and internships? No.

Celebretard Showdown: Mischa Barton vs. Tara Reid

There are a lot of celebrities out there that simply disappear, whether it be voluntarily or due to lack of talent/rehab/Bermuda triangle. There are a couple that have massive amounts of issues, yet refuse to disappear. In fact, they seem to pop up everywhere, strutting around uninvited on every red carpet.

Let’s Put An End To These Fashion Faux Pas!

By now, we're all familiar with the fashion atrocities committed by the male population. No, sweaty dude, that mesh tank top does not look good on you. Or anyone, really. But women are not free from errors - actually, considering our traditional involvement with fashion, we make rather more mistakes.

Introducing: The Best. Workout. Ever.

Since I don't exercise in a traditional manner (i.e. don't exercise at all...), I end up counting any and all physical activities as exercise. Like walking to the train station. Or shopping. Or sex. Well, apparently someone else is on the same page as I am.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Dress Yourself Thin

I, like most girls, have a complicated relationship with my body. After years of self-torture and dressing in clothes that would probably work better as yacht sails, I've come to the conclusion that my body is certainly not perfect, but it is mine. Ever since I started going to college, I tried to capitalize on this love/hate thing.

Why You Should…Shave Your Head

Every girl has a love/hate relationship with her hair. If her hair is straight, she wishes it were curly. If her hair is curly, she wishes it were straight. Frizz is constantly on the attack and there are never enough bobby pins. Yet, our hair can either make or break a look, so we spend hours planning, executing, and perfecting our style.

The Weekly Wrap Up: Fall Fantasies

It's been an interesting week. Now that we're in the thick of summer, we're starting to look ahead to the...fall? What? Despite my resistance to any and all cool weather thoughts at this time, they are here.

Celebretard Showdown: Paula Abdul vs. Kara DioGuardi

During one of my sweaty midnight marathons (not the good kind, trust me), I happened to see one of the more recent episodes of American Idol. If I despised the American Idol judges before, you can bet that Kara DioGuardi's actions didn't make my feelings any fonder. What was she thinking?? I mean, the only one to rival her in craziness is Paula Abdul.
