"The best thing about being a girl is, now I don't have to pretend to be a boy."
W Magazine did it again and hands down had the best year for magazine covers.
This might come as a total shock, but people don't read Playboy for the in-depth articles.
By university, most ladies probably know someone who has battled with anorexia, bulimia or some form of an eating disorder. Though it's not a gender specific disease, it is most prevalent in young women. Researchers from the London School of Economics recently did a study on eating disorders, finding them to be "socially transmitted diseases."
For an issue that is supposed to be inspiring women, I was feeling pretty dejected reading through it. Glamour made me feel skanky, unhygienic, and sexually unadventurous. And then I came across an article that was so absurd that I had no choice but to feel a lot better about myself because at least I'm not clueless enough to take this advice seriously.
When I first started this internship, I had high expectations. I knew that it would be different than the other internship I had; I could tell from the interview alone that this one would be a little bit more exciting, a little bit more hands-on, and was definitely about a subject matter that I enjoy.

It’s no secret that interning can be a dull job. In fact, sometimes internships get such a bad rep that we forgot that they can also have some pretty amazing perks.

It's gift giving time and that means one thing: you've got a lot of wrapping to do. And if you're anything like me, you're way too cheap to spend money on holiday wrapping paper. Plus, is it really fair to our lovely planet to waste a tree on something that just gets thrown away? I don't think so.
Even though celebrity gossip websites like Perez Hilton and TMZ have become a daily pop-culture bible for some of us, there are always those moments when the internet just will not do.
I love books. I just unpacked my massive book collection and filled like ten shelves with those suckers. Everything from horror to fantasy to sci-fi to children’s to textbooks - I refused to sell anything back because it was pretty much a rip off. Seriously, $15 for a book I spent $100 on? And never opened?
Okay, maybe "new" is not technically true. But hear me out.We all have that old once-loved pair of perfectly worn-in shoes that are still perfectly functional but are (a) out of fashion, (b) scratched up, or (c) both.
