How To Drink Like A Lady

Here are a few tips on how to keep your lady status intact when going out in public, under the influence…   -Stop Getting White Girl Wasted: We all know this girl. She’s taking shot after shot, screaming and dancing around when her jam comes on, and trying to tell her more reasonable friends “I’M LIKE TOTALLYYY NOT THAT DRUNK BEEETCH!” We all have our drunken moments, I get that, but this will only be acceptable a handful of times before you are labeled a drunk mess.

Finding Happiness

The search for happiness: a highly sought-after feeling. A common goal for millions of people spanning across every culture, gender, religion, age, and tax bracket. Aside from those who spend a lifetime attaining power, money and fame, what most people want most in life is to be HAPPY. Many of us see a therapist to fulfill that need, some of us may even take a pill to drown out the bad feelings and replace them with what we assume is “happiness.” I’m never too proud to admit that I’ve experiencedRead More
There comes a time in every person’s life when he or she has to put down the delivery menu and learn to cook. And honestly, it’s not that difficult. By the time most of us graduate from college, we’re well-versed in the art of boxed meal-preparation. Anyone with a pair of eyes can whip up a box of pasta or mac and cheese, or boil a bag of rice. Unfortunately, a lot of us aren’t quite as good at throwing together fresh eats. SO, I’d like to help a brothaRead More
As an entire unit, women weren’t on their best behavior in 2013. We can blame Miley all we want, but at the end of the day, we are the only ones responsible for our piss poor antics. Amanda Bynes was out here busting it wide open on Twitter, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey were acting like children on American Idol, Kim K was doing far too much as usual, and don’t get me started on the animals who star in shows like “Love and Hip Hop” and “Basketball Wives”. Apparently,Read More

Music Festival Survival Guide

Regardless of whether you’re hitting up one or ten music festivals this year, there’s still some amount of preparation required for each one.

Love yourself, and Take a Picture

This is a poem I wrote about selfies:   Think twice Smile nice Or pay the price Of your ugly selfie vice   We live in the ultimate culture of narcissism. Us twenty-somethings love ourselves more than any generation before. Ever since the first smartphone maker manufactured the first reversible camera, we’ve been obsessed with ourselves: seeking self-validated self-esteem gained from a self-taken picture of oneself has manifested in the onslaught of obnoxious selfies and selfie behavior. Surely, you’ve seen it. The airport is one popular spot. Right in frontRead More
So, on December 31st of every year, I make a list of things I intend to do differently in the upcoming year.  What I almost never do (besides actually maintaining my resolution), though, is determine a plan of attack for each new goal.  So here it goes, the New Year Resolution: demystified.  Oh, and if you have any additional suggestions  for how I can go about successfully accomplishing the feats listed here, feel free to tweet me at @femmedroid5000 or email me at brandib@writtalin.com.  Getting the strong and sexy bodyRead More

The world is full of sexy women. This is undeniable. But when looking to find a girl to seriously date, you must look past her looks and into her personality traits. While there may be plenty of fish in the sea, here are some specimens you never want dangling at the end of the line. Or to never dangle your line into.  #10 – The Selfie Superstar You all know the types. They lurk in the corners of parties and bars, with an iPhone in one hand, and more oftenRead More

Act Like an Adult: Things Men Need to Own

No more beanbag chairs and using paper towels to dry off after a shower (if you haven’t tried that ever, you should), it is 2014 and you need to get your shit together.  This is a list of things that you should own as an adult male, that is, unless your New Year’s Resolution was to “Live Life Like a Character from Workaholics.”  Buying secondhand is fine, I don’t really care how you get it done.  But I am sick of going to a friend’s house and being offered aRead More

Five Manly New Years Resolutions

But no matter who you are, there is always room for improvement. Here are five easy, productive changes for men to make in 2014. Get it done.   #5 – Be a Fucking Gentleman Too many dudes these days don’t care enough about chivalry. No, you don’t need to give theRead More
What I am about to share with you is mind-blowing, potentially lifesaving, inside information. But I’m going to premise it with a well-known fact: Women are goddamn stalkers. Don’t chastise us for it. I’m pretty sure that having a borderline-obsessive curiosity about everyone around us is just in our nature. Reality television thrives off of our intrinsic love of gossip and drama. Women want to know what the eff is up with everyone else at all times. That includes celebrities, coworkers, friends, and basically every attractive guy within a 10,000Read More

A Practical Guide to Happiness

With the New Year approaching, I’ve noticed an uptick in the number of self-help articles appearing on my Facebook Timeline. I wish I could say that I’m not the type of person to get suckered into reading them all, but I am, because I’m a girl and we love to read that crap. Here’s what I’ve noticed, though—Most of these articles focus on attaining peace and happiness through meditation, weight loss, shopping, and spiritual outings. They feature photos of upbeat-looking women doing yoga, shopping, climbing mountains, eating vegetables and runningRead More
