The other day I thought to myself, how do you know when someone is a friend? How do you differentiate between a friend and someone who finds you useful and convenient? This was a tough question and while many people have varying answers to it, I boiled mine down to scenarios. A friend will come to help you even when they lack the resources and means to. A fine example that I can refer to is my nightmarish moving days when I tried to do it solo and a random friend would pop up to help. While you may see this as trivial, you have to consider the full story. I had given out ample notice that I would need help moving at x date yet everyone who promised help couldn’t attend. I’ve had this happen three times in my life and all three times, three… [Read more]

“I will stay on course. Sometimes when I am running a hard work out I get discouraged. I begin to doubt if I can finish. The pain seeps into my lungs, my legs and eventually my heart feels like it will burst. Same as in life when you hit hurdles to your goals. You get weary from trying, your heart has so much pain and begins to think it will fail… As I thought about the hardest workouts and races in my life, I know it is always most difficult right before the finish line and accomplishing what I thought I could not. So I will stay the course. I encourage you to do so as well.” Lolo Jones (SOURCE) If you’ve been following Lolo’s life you know her name has become one of the public’s favorite target for scrutiny. From the Olympic disappointments to… [Read more]

When I say it, I come off as some sort of punk looking for pity but take it from a mother of a boy, the world isn’t exactly a friendly place for a man these days. Too often we are reminded that we’re nothing but rapists, dead beat dads, and misogynists with little attention given to the fathers who stay home, the men who lead, and those who earn the title teacher. Men have become America’s villain… As of late Jada Pinkett Smith has been on a crusade on her Facebook to get some answers for the war of the sexes. Touted as one of the only celebrities with a “perfect life” she has written on getting along with her step son’s mother, teaching her daughter how to be a strong, independent thinker, and loving her son so that he can become a man like… [Read more]

As men we have the unfortunate curse of having extremely fragile egos where women are concerned. We don’t want to hear that we were settled on, lucky to have her, or even worse the current member in a long list of clones that occupied your woman’s “type”. So to keep your sanity I warn you men reading to probe ever so lightly where an ex is concerned because you may not like what you will find out. Is Stalking A Lover’s Ex A Manly Trait? Lots of women do this thing where they go digging in your archives to look up women of the past with whom you were in love with at one point. The goal of this behavior starts out as mere curiosity but quickly descends into this obsession to find out who she was, why she was prettier, and how in love you were with her…. [Read more]

So yesterday the wife of New Englands Patriots Wide Reciever Wes Welker – an ex-Hooters model by the name of Anna Burns Welker decided to throw Baltimore Ravens’ star Linebacker Ray Lewis under the bus and join what seems to be a sorority of dumb New England wives who can’t shut the hell up (looking at you Gisele) after their husbands lose. Anna got on Facebook and wrote the following, before the internet backlash forced her to make an apology: “Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!” Since apologizing for posting the comment and becoming e-famous for being stereotypically hot and dumb, Anna was the subject of much article commentary that were… [Read more]

counting money

There are a ton of articles on the web about great side hustles but most of them are absolute rubbish. The articles present lists of small jobs and 2-year degree options that we can do for work but give no clue as to how you get into it, how relevant it is and whether or not the writer knows someone who is actively doing it. As a master of the “side hustle” I often get approached by people wishing to bolster their 9-to-5 with money that doesn’t necessarily involve working 2 jobs. The following list is a compilation of ideas that myself and affluent friends of mine have delved into to get a good amount of extra income coming in. These are things that we do, not things that we hear are good. So if you are serious about bringing in some extra money, consider… [Read more]

We’re not only writers, we’re readers and below are some of the highlights of the past few weeks that we wish to share: Sexism, Racism, And Swimming At The London 2012 Olympics – I’ve been a little taken aback this week at the level of racism against China in the British and US media, and on longer-than-usual comment threads on various friends’ Facebook walls. I mean, I know that racism in sport and in the media is nothing new… (Racialicious) What is Your Secret To Body Confidence? – Since body confidence comes from trusting and loving your body, it would make sense that I had none of it. Especially at that time in my life. I was geeky and weird. Way too transparent. Intellectually smart but dumb in common sense. (Frugivore) You Don’t Call Until You Want Something – Stop telling lies about being “so busy” all… [Read more]

ladies trolling

Internet Troll: In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion. (from: Wikipedia.com) Trolling can be a ton of fun (when you yourself play the part of troll), but for the clueless, emotional victims that fall for it, trolling can be frustrating and embarrassing. Having done my fair share of trolling on many online venues, I find that the game of hunter vs. the hunted is skewed so far left that it really isn’t fun anymore to sucker someone into a heated debate. If I drop some nonsense on Facebook about religion, politics, or Lolo Jones, I can get 100 simple people foaming at the mouth, ready to “speak… [Read more]
