YUP. COFFEE WINE. IN A CAN. My gut reaction was a kind of upset gurgling sound, but my first verbal reaction was “WHY THOUGH.”
Issues
In my 20s, I had an abortion in a Massachusetts clinic before the protection law was in place. It was like going to the doctor in a war zone.
Relationships
These lazy weekend lie-ins will soon be a thing of the past, so enjoy them while you can.
Relationships
“I think it's over.” He didn't argue. And like that we were in some sort of Woody Allen movie about breaking up in couple's therapy.
Entertainment
There are moral and ethical implications to videos that use imagery of high status, and achievement, whether via consumption or heredity.
It Happened To Me
You feel responsible for the kid you see in front of you, the kid clearly suffering from a lifetime of abuse and neglect, this kid whose life might have maybe been different, if only. You play “if only” a lot.
Clothes
The best way to give your outfits some vintage flair is with accessories.
Issues

Minimal Internet research had informed me that the café only served food that was mentioned on the show, but upon arrival I learned that they now serve personal pizzas and character-themed cupcakes.
Sex, Sex, Sex ... and Love
The only attention we get from men we don’t already know is almost always from guys that were not getting laid in college, the ones who wouldn’t dare leave the house in leather pants. And that’s just fine with me.
Sex, Sex, Sex ... and Love
I felt like King Midas hoarding gold. I didn’t want to give anyone up. Each man had a unique quality.

For 10 minutes, as I was nearly in tears, the hairstylist berated me about the idea of getting a pixie cut.

I find it incredibly empowering to have an intimate relationship with the ebbs and flows of my own cycle.
It Happened To Me
Everyone seemed friendly enough and I eased into the work without a hitch. But then, it happened.

Fashion
I redecorate my house almost as often as I switch up my taste in clothes.
