My first foray into witchcraft began two summers ago, when I decided to try a love spell. I have always been fascinated by the concept of witchcraft – a connection of one’s body, mind and soul into the earth around us – and luckily for me, my mother is totally obsessed with witches.
My family and I would always joke that my mother was a witch in a former life (although we did find that a distant relative on my father’s side was ... Read More

I’ve been an intern at BUST since February and I have to say, it’s been a wild ride. When I started my internship, I knew that I wouldn’t have a difficult time finding stories to talk about (luckily women are so awesome and talented that there is always something new and exciting to share!) But, as I’m about to finish my time at BUST, I can say I truly had no idea what I was in for.My most recent reflection came from the absolutely ... Read More

I’ve been a pretty committed fan of the ABC reality television show The Bachelor (a.k.a. the show for which I have the most-conflicted feelings) since the first season in 2002. I was 10. Part of me loves the romantic fairy tale vibe (What?! I’m a human being! Why wouldn’t I want a Prince Charming?) and part of me gets sick about the entire concept. Hence, my conundrum with those who tote the show's female-centric spin off (The ... Read More

I know you might be trying to forget some of your horrible 90s-fashion-inspired moments, like how you wore a massive rasta hat or almost got a tattoo of a daisy inside a yin yang on your shoulder. But there *are* some things about the 90s that are worth remembering, and we're not just talking about Clueless. Take, for example, 90s rock band 4 Non Blondes-- the group behind the megahit single "What's Up." The band had a one-time reunion this past weekend, at ... Read More

I have always been obsessed with the idea of growing up in a different decade. Would I still look like me? Would I still be like me? How would I dress?!
So it's no surprise that I am obsessed with Ohio State University student Annalisa Hartlaub's photo project “Counter//Culture." Hartlaub, 16, created a photo series in which she interprets styles from previous decades. Using herself as a model, Hartlaub showcases fashion from previous decades ; her ... Read More

I am almost a college graduate. After four years of kicking butt, studying, hanging out with friends, going to bed too late, and several late nights in the computer lab, my time in higher education has come to a close. Whew.
I guess because it’s the first week of May, there have been a lot of articles out “How to be Successful After College,” “10 Ways to Find a Job,” etc. etc. They are stressing me the freak out. What if I do ... Read More
