How To NOT Live Every Day Like It’s Your Last

BeFunky_Nuclear-Explosion

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the saying “live every day like it’s your last”. We see it embroidered on pillows or posted on Facebook with inspirational photos by the same idiots who tell us to dance like no one is watching and something about the number of moments that take your breath away. At least twice a week I get a similar email from a well meaning friend or relative that includes a heavily recycled message meant to be uplifting in some way or another. I love Read More…




How To Use A Drill

About a year ago I joined the ranks of a very proud group of people: those who “live alone”. I’ve noticed over the years that anyone who has an apartment and doesn’t share it with a dozen people they met off of Craigslist is only too excited to tell you how much they LOVE living alone! “I soooo do not miss having a roommate.” They’ll exclaim. “At least if there’s a mess I know I made it.

Hair is awesome because, unlike losing weight or plastic surgery, you can alter it with such ease and it completely changes your whole aesthetic. Ever since I was thirteen and my mother finally allowed me to grace my darkening head with brassy, orange streaks of “blonde” via Sun-In, I have consistently colored, chopped, teased, sprayed, crimped or straightened my hair according to who I felt I was at that particular time in my life.
