Aging out of Friendships

I’ll be 30 this fall, that feels like a big deal, at least it does to me – it’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I LOVE birthdays, I can get a little extra when it comes to celebrating and gifting. As I approach the end of my twenties, I find myself thinking about what the past decade…

#EatFeast

Working in an ad agency can be incredibly rewarding, I still get giddy when I see something I worked on covered in the press or just existing out there in the real world, but it can also be incredibly taxing and it often means lunch is super quick and maybe not so healthy.

Roosh V Counsels Followers to Break the Law

I’m a proud feminist. That’s no secret, I believe men and women deserve equal treatment. Simple. As. That.

To your face they say, “Oh, poor dear.” and “I’m so sorry.” Which feels like a platitude or the words of someone who simply doesn’t understand. Behind your back they say, “I wonder what she did?” and “I bet she was drunk.” Which reminds me that somehow what…

4Chan Fakes it

Earlier this week the internet at large was introduced to the site EmmaYourNext.com. The site, thought to be a brain child of the man-trolls that live on 4chan, promised 48 million visitors that a new batch of naked photos were coming and this time they would victimize Emma Watson. Having just spoken at the UN on the subject of gender…
