Awkward Moment of the Day
Me (in the stall of the ladies' bathroom, after realizing that my toe was bleeding): Oh my GOD, I'm bleeding!

Dating in the Digital Age
A friend of my cousin has taken on a new, somewhat severe approach to dating. No texting. I know this sounds like no big deal, but think about the percentage of your interactions with members of the opposite sex (or the same) that occur via text. Imagine cutting texting out of your life. No responding to texts you get, no quick “hey, what’s up?”, nothing. It sounds unnecessarily...
Here’s my philosophy on dating. It’s important to have somebody that...– Sophia Bush, as Brooke Davis “One Tree Hill”

Earlier tonight I was heading out to dinner downtown with a few friends. My friend Lauren picked us all up, and about halfway there, this random guy walked in jaywalked in front of us and we had to hit the breaks. Lauren honked, maybe a little too long, but rightly so. I mean, we all jaywalk. But who seriously sees a car coming and then deliberately walks out in the road SLOWLY. Anyway, this guy...
Freaks and Geeks is on!
I got back to school today. I unpacked (sort of) and threw on a dress… went to the usual bars with the usual people in the usual scene. And you know what? It sucked. I knew that I wasn’t looking forward to come back, really, and I knew that I was at least a little bored with the bar scene, but come ON. Tonight was rough. It’s 11:20 and I’m already home. So I think I might...

I just made grilled portobello mushroom tacos with avocado and homemade salsa verde for dinner. SO good.

Lester Bangs: Aw, man. You made friends with them. See, friendship is the booze they feed you. They want you to get drunk on feeling like you belong.
William Miller: Well, it was fun.
Lester Bangs: They make you feel cool. And hey. I met you. You are not cool.
William Miller: I know. Even when I thought I was, I knew I wasn't.
Lester Bangs: That's because we're uncool. And while women will always be a problem for us, most of the great art in the world is about that very problem. Good-looking people don't have any spine. Their art never lasts. They get the girls, but we're smarter.
William Miller: I can really see that now.
Lester Bangs: Yeah, great art is about conflict and pain and guilt and longing and love disguised as sex, and sex disguised as love... and let's face it, you got a big head start.
William Miller: I'm glad you were home.
Lester Bangs: I'm always home. I'm uncool.
William Miller: Me too!
Lester Bangs: The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what we share with someone else when we're uncool.
William Miller: I feel better.
Lester Bangs: My advice to you. I know you think those guys are your friends. You wanna be a true friend to them? Be honest, and unmerciful.
Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves, and of course, each...– Betsey Johnson (via ellamaye)
these sneakers have HEELS HIDDEN INSIDE THEM. I can’t decide how I feel about that. I mean, at 5’10 I really can’t relate, but if you’re short, this is the equivalent of a push-up bra for leg length. I bet they make your feel look tiny though, which I could definitely appreciate, if they didn’t make me seven feet tall. What do you think?
