There's almost nothing worse than waking up in the morning and discovering a big, fat zit in the middle of your forehead. And it always seems to happen the day of sorority formal/a new ID photo/a presentation/any random Tuesday when you pass your crush on the way to class.
Happy Tax Day! I know it's not the best day for those of you who have to hand your hard-earned money over to the government (perhaps a free donut will help?), but some of you might be lucky enough to be getting some cash back. Hooray! If you're anything like me, you were so excited at the prospect of having a positive number in your bank account that you started spending that money before you even got it.
Ah, getting dumped- we've all been there, and it's not pretty. Whether it was a long-term, serious relationship or a fling in which the end was inevitable, getting broken up with sucks. A lot. But even more pathetic than the subsequent week spent downing ice cream, getting incoherently drunk off boxed wine, and sobbing to your friends is the way in which some dudes choose to perform the dumping.
When I was 16, I needed an easy job that could fund my many expenses (like the two beers that got me drunk on the weekends and movie tickets for 7pm on Fridays). The mall was an obvious choice, since I'd always have someone to hang with on breaks (the place employed my entire high school) and I'd have a sweet employee discount.

LiLo's fallen and she's fallen hard. First her acting career, then her love life, and now her popularity. While she hasn't had a real movie since Mean Girls and, as such, no real income, Lindsay has been bar hopping to score some cash. But even that isn't bringing in the dough anymore. In fact, it is rumored that Snooki is now making more per appearance than Ms. Lohan herself.

I am currently going through my most difficult breakup yet in college: my relationship with Spring Break has ended. This was the first year I went away for the week, and I must say I'm appalled that anyone expects me to just come back to campus and start going to class and (gasp) STUDYING. Can't I at least get a week of mourning, people!?

Women's History Month is (unforch) coming to an end, and this week, it's time to pay homage to a very different type of hero. All month long we've been telling you why we worship various female celebs based on their fierce fashion or sense of humor. To finish out the month, I want to share with you all the story of Khadijah Williams, a freshman at Harvard University who proves that a woman can achieve anything with the right amount of determination.
Let's be honest for a moment: house parties and bar hopping are all great weekend (or weeknight...or weekday...) activities, but they can get pretty exhausting for us ladies. We have to primp for hours, wear excruciatingly high heels and tight clothes, and still manage to look good after gettin' low on the dance floor to whatever Black Eyed Peas song the DJ decides to play.
Ellen Degeneres is a household name nowadays, and rightfully so. From her hilarious antics, sweet dance moves, and generous heart, Ellen does it all, and that's why she's our fourth inspiring woman to be featured this month! Ellen has come so far in both her personal and professional life and it's all because she works hard and is not afraid to be herself.
Flip through the channels on any given day and take your pick of whose lives you'd like a firsthand look at- pregnant high-schoolers, wealthy housewives, bridezillas, fist-pumping guidos, drug addicted celebs, trashy hoes fighting (literally) for the love of a rockstar, famous-for-no-reason celebs, tiara clad toddlers, and people who've had waaaaay too many children.
When the word mentor comes to mind, we think of someone we look up to for advice and guidance. Someone we truly respect and admire. And unless you happen to be the 7-year-old girls that I babysit, that person is probably not Hannah Montana.
I understand the appeal of March Madness. Really, I do. We all need a little distraction to get us through this month when midterms and papers abound, everyone's depressed post-Spring Break and the warm weather is teasing us.
You might have noticed that lately, magazines and TV are being applauded for finally displaying "average" looking women. From America Ferrara starring on Ugly Betty, to Tina Fey on 30 Rock, to Glamour giving Crystal Renn her own spread, it seems like the media industry was actually making some headway in this department!
