Motherhood causing inequality in workplace

December 13, 2012

Your perceptions of inequality between the sexes in the workplace may be inaccurate. Women are not being excluded from pay or positions within corporations because of men, but because women as a whole do not want these positions.

Parents approach Santa differently

December 6, 2012

When Christmas comes to mind, Santa will also, whether or not you are still a believer. The story of Santa is typically a happy one and his discovery as fake usually results in few broken hearts.

Older women don’t appreciate ‘cougar’ title

November 29, 2012

Meow.
This week’s column is dedicated to a particular type of feline: cougars.
Any close friend of mine knows I’ve been 13-going-on-30 since my preteen years. This desire to be my idealized version of the perfect woman – awesome, career-minded, future cool mom, with moves like Jagger – has followed me since my youth.

Reflect professionalism on social media

November 15, 2012

We’re all guilty of “Facebook Stalking.” Or as I prefer to call it: being really, really, friendly.

Conquering the green-eyed monster named jealousy

November 8, 2012

“She said she daydreams about killing you.” That’s what my high school classmate said to me after Photography II let out. Someone had daydreamed about killing me.

Knowing where to find the perfect girl

My No. 1 rule of wisdom is conversation first, pick-up line second. Build a little rapport, girls love that.

Distracted drivers endanger others on road

September 27, 2012

Why do people drive so badly? Have you been there? Driving along with some bozo moving at a snail’s pace where passing isn’t an option because there are people on either side of them, someone else is swinging into your lane with clearly no idea you’re there and then some other nincompoop is riding your back bumper?

Learn to balance relationships, schoolwork through communication

September 20, 2012

What to do when you and your partner are faced with mounds of homework, projects and tests? Study together? Well, maybe not.

Debunking college Greek life stereotypes

May 4, 2012

“Vivian Smith” asks: “What’s up with the Greek life here on campus? Why don’t they have a larger presence here? I feel like no one really knows about them.” Good question.
