Jennifer Dziura writes career and life advice weekly on TheGloss. Here is an archive, and here is an archive of Bullish columns from our sister site TheGrindstone.

I was partly rewarding myself for churning out another educational book last year (I did a lot of work on this), but I was mostly churning away on a BIG PLAN THAT I WILL TELL YOU ABOUT NOW:
This 2013, I am starting 12 businesses in 12 months. More
When was the last time you could convince your partner to die for you or play fetch with you? I’ve spent half my adult life trying to get the men I’ve dated to play fetch with me, and it’s no sale every time. I’m not telling them they need to catch the ball with their mouth like a dog, it’s just a suggestion. More
Thank you, Pinternet, for this bounty of adorableness that will now grace our screens. More
