Four Easy Tips to Help You Stay Awake at Work

School’s out for summer and the time of sun, relaxation and road trips has arrived. But chances are, like me, you also have a summer job or internship that requires you to spend long hours sitting at a desk.

Tuffy Luv Gets Bugged About Beds

So to start, this is humiliating, but last Friday night I peed my bed. I'm a 24 year old grad student and live in the dorms at my school. I have no idea what happened, and this was a completely random event. By no means am I a bedwetter...anyways, my roommate found out (it was pretty easy, she was awake when I woke up soaked...), which was even more embarrassing.

The Weekly Ten: Why You’re Fat

This week I've been inspired by ThisIsWhyYou' or my own personal struggle with winter weight. Between the Christmas cookies, Starbucks peppermint mochas and, oh yeah, lifting my drinking ban, these have all caused me to pack on the weight over the past three months. I could not be more annoyed with the term "winter weight," or having to rationalize that I'm not getting fat, just fluffy.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: What Makes a Good Friday?

In honor of the goodness of Good Friday, I decided to make this Friday extra special and do everything to make sure it was good: I ate a donut for breakfast (good), I put real cream instead of skim milk in my coffee (good), I never got out of my PJs (good), and I'm hoping to watch the entire first season of The Hills on DVD (very good).
