There’s no
denying it. Breaking up is oh-so hard to do, especially in today’s 24-hour
techno-savvy world of Facebook, Twitter, and post-breakup booty calls arranged
via sex-ting. If you’re nursing a broken heart, be sure to avoid these
emotionally costly social networking mistakes…

Heartbreak Mistake #1: Do NOT stay
connected to your ex on Facebook and Twitter

Yes, social
networking has made keeping up with friends both near and far incredibly easy
and convenient. What it’s also done is make healing a broken heart
excruciatingly difficult.  Whereas once
upon a time, we risked getting caught if we drove by our ex’s house or dialed
his digits and hung up when he answered, in today’s techno-savvy world we can
cyberstalk our ex in our pajamas, from the safe glow of our computer screens,
at 3 a.m. If you find yourself lurking on your ex’s social networking pages,
keeping tabs on who he’s talking to and what he’s doing, you may need an  intervention from your Boohoo Crew.  Seriously, call one of them immediately and
have them come over to exorcise your ex from your online life.

Heartbreak Mistake #2: Do NOT blog
about the breakup on Facebook and Twitter

Why 'Having It All' Doesn't Have To Mean Having Kids

By

Back when Anne-Marie Slaughter's article Why Women Still Can't Have It All appeared in the The Atlantic back in 2012, I was fired up and pissed off. And I still am because, you now, she's right! First, let's define what Slaughter means by "having it all." She's referring to that constant juggling act of having a ... Read more

I Lost My Cool With A 6-Year-Old Bully On The Playground

By

Yes, you read that right I'm a real a**hole on the playground. More specifically, I may be ruining young psyches with my playground politics. Case in point: My recent run in with a little girl we'll call Julia. In my defense, Julia's a real prima donna. Blonde. Prissy. Know-it-all. She may only be 5 or 6 now, but I see Julia's future. ...
