The TV Gods are smiling down upon us children of the 90s because Topanga and Cory have returned. That’s right, our favorite sitcom couple is back in action. The duo will be playing their characters from Boy Meets World, only all grown up. The new, conveniently titled series, Girl Meets World, managed to snag the original two stars,...Read More!
When I look for a new bar to frequent, my search query usually consists of words like “dive bar,” “happy hour,” and “cheap.” Recently, my co-workers introduced me to a place that not only satisfies the latter two, but also provides just enough of that trashy dive vibe without the fear of contracting an STD from the bar...Read More!
The new year is upon us and, granted the world doesn’t end tomorrow, it’s time to start thinking about our New Year’s resolutions. I love the start of a new year because for a brief period everyone genuinely believes they are going to finally drop that weight, get that promotion, and quit all those bad habits. In order to increase the...Read More!
Fa la la la la la la ka-ching. I don’t want to sound like a total Scrooge, but the holidays are sucking me dry.

Despite the recent chaos around me, my quality of life has increased tenfold. I owe that improvement to 13 pounds of poodle perfection. My father came to visit me recently me and with him he brought my sweet little dog, Sophie. Don’t let her age fool you because with that girl, 12 is the new 2; she has the energy of a puppy, but the...Read More!
I am not a religious person by any means, but last week I was baptized. It wasn’t by choice, and the ceremony was wildly unorthodox. Hurricane Sandy grabbed me by the ankles, dipped me in the waters of the East River and christened me a New Yorker. Either I am a magnet for drama, or New York has a darkly humorous way of greeting...Read More!
We’re well into October and I’m starting to get that anxious feeling because I don’t know what I’m going to be for Halloween. As I was racking my brain for something even slightly creative the other day, I realized I have an even bigger problem. I don’t even know how to dress or what to do for Halloween now that I’m in the “real...Read More!
Being that I chose to get my degree in English and pursue a career in writing, I inevitably signed myself up for several more years of retail hell in my post-graduate life. While working in the retail industry does pay my rent, coping with the constant rules and restrictions is still trying on the nerves of this free spirit. Even worse than...Read More!
