When I first heard this Mumford and Sons song, I thought it was really beautiful. Here you go. More
Who wants to work on a vacation? People who like their work, of course. People who travel alone. More
Let’s talk about business ideas, which are a nice palate-cleanser after whatever happened with that dude. More
Here’s a question that could’ve been written by almost any of us.
Do you have any tips on how to trust yourself to get things done? I make all these work plans in my schedule but don’t follow through. So, when I make them I get stressed, scared that I won’t do them or wonder how to manipulate myself into surely doing them. More
I once had a roommate who appeared to be drinking an entire case (24 cans) of Miller Lite every single night. One night, she threatened someone with a small knife. The next day, I asked her to leave. More
I love questions from people in the UK, Australia, and Canada! They’re my favourite! (See what I did there?) Not just because I enjoy dabbling in the Queen’s English, but also because it’s so much easier to answer people’s career-related questions when I can sleep soundly knowing that nobody’s going to lose their health insurance.

I once went on a two-week hiking/camping trip over a stretch of the Appalachian Trail. I did not train for this trip. I did, however, make numerous trips to Asian grocery stores to buy dehydrated everything (vegetarian squid made out of yam flour, with tentacle-suckers painted on!), enough to feed three people for several days.

Women’s emotions are “emotions,” men’s emotions are “how people talk.” More
Not only do the biceps stick around (they look normal when I’m not flexing them; I have small lady-arms), but one of the main benefits of weightlifting for me was vastly improved posture. I was a slumpy teenager. People would tell me to sit up straight, but it was like I wasn’t even able to. Six months of building back muscles, and I had the posture of a Greek god. More
Let’s see a letter from a reader who’s friend is stuck in a shrubbery-filled rut. More
Apparently, dating is dead. Except that I’ve been on hundreds of dates, and so have many of you.
It’s kind of like saying that sushi is dead. I mean, a lot of people don’t eat sushi. But you can still totally get some if you want. More
Check out this question from a reader I’ve named Tai after the new girl in the 1995 classic Clueless. More
I have been informed that Jennifer Wright is giving up caffeine as a way to become more adult.
I don’t understand this, and fortunately I don’t work in the offices, so she can’t punch me (not that she’ll have the energy to, considering the lack of caffeine). Subsisting on only black coffee, croissants, and cigarettes seems very adult to me, if obviously unhealthy (see the Jean-Paul Sartre cookbook), because “healthy” is really not the same as “adult.” More
You can’t make it in the art world if all you want to do is make art–you’re running a business, and it takes a fiendish work ethic and the willingness to look outside your own field for ideas and expertise.
The fashion world seems to operate in much the same way: unless you’re born into a famed fashion family, you’ll have a hard time making it in fashion if all you care about is fashion. More
