Moleskine has saved my life. Since 2011, a busy chunk of to-dos has been jot down into planners. As an undergrad student, I’ve highlighted and underlined my way to remembering the most important stuff, and other than procrastinating on purpose, planners have made being an organized mess an acceptable habit.


As far as dating goes, being a man or woman who's usually on-the...

With the government having shut down, spending money loosely is out of the question for some. Who needs a romantic dinner for two when feeding pet fish is 10 times as cheap? All jokes, but seriously… Dating and frugality don’t always mix, especially when, for example, you’re riding solo in a big city. You’d think dating in urban areas would be easier.

Neil Papworth sent the first text message back in 1992. “Merry Christmas” was the phrase that started it all, though it took eight more years for short-but-sweet messages to catch on.

An episode of MTVs GuyCode got me thinking: can an admitted player rewrite history? Can the guy who always beds the girl somehow make it right for the next one? The TV show was airing a marathon, and one part of "Being A Player" killed me; the cast is hilarious and I think we al...
