Taking His Last Name: Yay or Nay?

I'm 23, far from getting married, but I have thought about this issue before: whether to someday take my husband's last name or keep my own. Growing up, I fantasized my wedding - I would marry my favorite Beatles member (impossible dreams of mine) and become Mrs. Lennon. I was always so intrigued by the fact that my last name would someday change; the possibilities are endless. Then, I grew up. Weddings no longer seem magical to me, and the only thing I'm looking forward to (about the actual…See More

Feminism: What Does It Really Mean?

I recently came across this article about certain celebrity women afraid to call themselves feminists. I found it very interesting that most of them declared themselves in support of gender equality but "not feminists." Hmmm. I respect their judgements and opinions, but it makes me wonder: do we really know what feminism means?The actual definition of feminism is "the advocacy of…See More

"If it makes you feel any better, I have straight hair and WISH I had curly. And a word of advice: don't look for comfort in fashion magazines, because you will not find any. The image of "beauty" most magazines display are unreal, and…"

Career Crisis: Pt. 58473

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I’m 23, I have a bachelor’s degree, and I’m in a good relationship. I’m where I thought I wanted to be when I was 8 years old – minus the fact that I’m not a famous musician – but at the same time, I’m not anywhere close to where I want to be. As a child, I wasn’t one of those energetic balls of sporadic dreamers who went from having their lifelong 20-minute dream of being a hairdresser to suddenly wanting to be an archeologist the next week.…See More

"Yes, but the last time I saw it was years ago so it's a little fuzzy. If you haven't seen it, you might enjoy watching Midnight in Paris (Owen Wilson's character parties with F. Scott Fitzgerald). "

"I loved the book! So original, exceptionally written (of course), and just an all-around great story. I found out about the film right after I read it, so I'm pretty excited. AND Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby (he's been my favorite…"
