Seventeen Says The Darndest Things: November Edition

Seventeen continues to perturb me in ways that Glamour never has. I just can't get over the one-dimensional messages this magazine is sending to girls.

It's not a big deal, right? But when does it cross the line?

Whether it's clicking rapidly through photo albums and tagged pictures or checking out every. single. girl. who posts on your random hook-up's wall, we've all been there. And that's OK.

The Weekly Ten: My New Year’s Resolution List

This week, after a particularly grueling New Year's Eve spent with 25 people in one tiny house with one tiny bathroom in New England, I had time (a lot) to reflect on my resolutions on the train ride back to NYC.
