    6 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Cut Out Dairy

    6 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Cut Out Dairy

    Let me start off by saying: I love cheese. No, I mean I love it. Not like normal love… like I would marry a block of cheddar and slip off with a cube of Swiss on the side. I would bathe in it from here until eternity; I would turn my head up to sky […]

    The 7 Real Differences Between A Tourist And A Traveler

    I took a bus trip around Europe once; we started in Amsterdam and weaved our way by highway down through Germany and Austria and curved into Italy and back up through Switzerland and France.

    20 Quotes For When You Feel Like You Just Need To Get Away From It All

    20 Quotes For When You Feel Like You Just Need To Get Away From It All

    There are few things as important to me as my passport; it's tattered, well-worn and stained with stamps of cities, countries and continents that are soaked into its creases. It has borne witness to every exploit, to every missed plane and every excited skip I've taken from airport to city-center. It's been lost — and […]

    I Fell In Love With A Sociopath (Spoiler Alert: It Didn't End Well)

    I Fell In Love With A Sociopath (Spoiler Alert: It Didn't End Well)

    He told me he loved me 10 minutes into our first date. Yes, looking back, it should have been a sign, but I was distracted by his straight teeth and crooked smile. The first time I met his eyes, they were wild: furtive, feral; brown-black pools that sparkled with equal parts charm and menace. He seemed […]

    21 Struggles Of Just-Sort-Of-Kind-Of Speaking A Second Language

    The moderately bilingual struggle is real. You trip over words; you word over trips. You're never quite there, and people always speak too fast or too slow.

    Restless Spirit: Why I Refuse To Spend My Whole Life In Just One Place

    Restless Spirit: Why I Refuse To Spend My Whole Life In Just One Place

    Distance is life's greatest teacher. It makes our hearts grow fonder, dazzles us with necessary perspective and wedges space between us and all those things we swore we couldn't live without. There is nothing like distance to demonstrate – painfully and otherwise – what exactly we need to be happy. I've made a case for moving all […]

    11 Struggles Women With Big Boobs Have With That Stupid Second Button

    Jerry Seinfeld explored the infamous shirt fastener once, saying, The second button literally makes or breaks the shirt. Look at it, it's too high, it's in no-mans-land. You look like you live with your mother! And, of course, Jerry was waxing poetic about men's shirts and the way they show how loose or uptight a gentleman is; however, […]

    51 Signs You're Self-Destructive And Give Zero F*cks About Changing

    I didn't always know I was self-destructive. It wasn't a choice I spontaneously made when I turned 16 and sipped on that first Bacardi Ice in a damp, dark basement (sorry, Mom). I didn't know the fact I'd forgo sleep for days in favor of dizzying dance floors and embark on three-day benders with absolute […]

    My brother is three and half years older than I am. He's about three inches taller and has had exactly three relationships in his lifetime.
