Seven Things A Twentysomething Can’t Do →
Saying no to things is really hard in your twenties. “Sure, I’ll go to lunch with you even though I would rather eat glass. Sure, I’ll go to your house party in Crown Heights because it’s Saturday night and I just finished watching every episode of Ally McBeal on Netflix Instant. Sure, I’ll do opium tea. Sounds scary but whatever!”
The Chase: Flattering or Creepy? (Part 1)
In this day in age, communication is a mess. No longer do you have finite ways to connect with someone: physically meet them, hope that you get through to their land line, or write a letter and mail it. Now in addition to that, we have email, text, BBM, Facebook, Twitter, gchat, and a host of other methods. But lets be honest, the last options mentioned have pretty much replaced what I like to...

Things they dont tell you about New York before... →
When you first arrive you’ll probably be introduced to the 48-hour day—the one where you go out for a ‘quiet drink’ on Monday evening only to find yourself at a party in some stranger’s loft on the Bowery at 5am, at which point you quietly bow out, sneak home for a shower before creeping off to work feeling very, very sorry for yourself.

Friend: He must be foreign.
Ola: He's from New Jersey.

It's Erin. Ms. Jackson if you're nasty.
Everyone has that friend with whom you love to go out with. With whom good conversations and laughs flow naturally. Someone who you can just kick the shit with, go out for a night on the town, or keep it simple and watch a movie. For me, one of these people in my life is a lady I like to call Ms. Jackson. To most, she’s Erin. I met Erin when I started a new job late last year and she...
Gay-Straight Man or Straight-Gay Man?
As women, we’re exposed to a wide range of experiences and types of men in the dating world. As New York women, we are exposed to the conundrum of The Gay-Straight Man vs The Straight-Gay Man.

So 4% of mobile users scan bar codes, so what? →
Client after client after client has express interest in ‘tapping into bar codes’; this ‘emerging technology’ so that they can satisfy some top executive’s demand to be ‘innovative’. Well, this ‘emerging technology’ has actually been around for a while and even though I think it can be done well, I dont think any advertiser has been able to...

Way better mash ups than Girl Talk.
The saying still applies in grown life:...
This past Sunday I physically felt the pains of waiting until the last minute to see Alexander McQueen’s exhibit, Savage Beauty, at the MET. Numerous friends told me that it was not to be missed and I have no idea why it took me so long. Oh yeah, I’ve been killing it this summer on my weekends: tons of concerts, weddings, Fire Island, Summer Camp for adults (more on that another time) and all...
