The one resolution that always makes its way on to my New Year's list is: read more books (...and watch more movies, and listen to more music, and see more comedy...) by women. In terms of authors, there's nothing like discovering a writer who knows just how to express everything I'm feeling, while dispensing with those pesky monologues about my gender's lasting inferiority (looking at you, Hemingway). But there are only so many Plath anthologies or Woolf novellas ... Read More

I walk a good 25 minutes to work every morning and a good 35 minutes (I’m a bit slower by the end of the day) from work every evening. Although the 1-1½ mile commute to and from Port Authority is a bit long, I initially didn’t think I would mind the walk. I could get a little fresh air and some much-needed cardio.
After my first day of work I was absolutely exhausted. Besides the whole working part, I couldn’t ... Read More

Jo Piazza knows a truth or two about dating rituals - the kinds you're afraid to admit you know about. Many of our relationships don’t begin with the first date or even the first smile. They don't start with an introduction or even a vision of what our future lover might be like. Each new relationship usually begins with the decline and crash of the previous one.

This summer it was hard for me to catch a lot of the Olympics because I don’t have a TV, so once in awhile I’d be lured into a bar, and with surprise (or perhaps not), found myself watching in awe, cheering, and even crying at the Olympians’ accomplishments. (Gabby Douglas had me tearing up over my beer.) But the one game I knew I couldn’t- and wouldn't- miss was the U.S. women’s soccer team taking on Japan for the Gold. If you don’t know, the ...

Brittney Griner, a junior at Baylor University in Texas, scooped up the most outstanding player honors and led her school's basketball team to the national championship on April 3 in Denver.
