    When there isn't a better example to be had/found/seen whatever, how should a person know to say "no!" and do something differently? But apart from that, these girls below the poverty line and...

    A significant chunk of my dates came from OKC, and they ranged from downright dumb to just absolutely totally awkward not-how-the-dude-came-off in writing. And I was really picky. If there wasn't a...

    It is not 2014 in chunks of America. I do not think people who haven't lived in the very rural, poor parts of America understand that. Those areas that are not exposed to money and the technology...

    Have you done any psoas stretching in combination with sacrum stretches? I have an unstable hip that is always worse if I haven't stretched that combination of muscles. Also, if you don't have a...

    That and you can get hulu, too, if you like. I find hulu/amazon prime/netflix/HBOGo takes care of all my needs.

    They don't. In fact, statistics show that women whose mothers were teenagers when they gave birth are more likely to become teen moms. It's a monkey-see monkey-do kind of scenario. You get the...

    This ten times over. And whatsmore, Angelico, people only know what they've been taught and been exposed to. You can't simply give a man a fishing pole and expect him to know what to do with it. ...

    It's not about having access always so much as knowing about where the access is to be had. In the highly conservative upper middle class new money meets old money county that I grew up in, BC was...

    This last paragraph I strongly resonate with. I once tutored pregnant teens through a program in an effort to get them to complete high school or get their GED. It was really, really difficult. ...

    THIS. I only wear Smartwool socks now. And It's been a six-month process to convert my stubborn man to start wearing them, but now he won't wear anything else either. A good pair of shoes is...

    I adore the Bloomington area (big college town with a huge arts culture and fantastic food). Very, very very stupidly affordable. One of the reasons I decided to pursue my masters here is because I...

    I have one where the guy told me I eat a lot of food for a girl, another guy who TWICE "forgot" his wallet for both dates we went on, a finance guy who tried to warn me of my impending financial doom...

    Call the police and tell them everything you wrote here. I have dealt with my fair share of unruly children, and while I won't deny this child is behaving badly, 9/10 a child's bad behavior is a...

    Here's the thing, I've had a very similar incident happen to me, so this story doesn't sound totally out of place. I got a recommendation to go interview and ride for a person who was--at the...

    Today I suggested to one of my male colleagues who was having trouble cleaning paintbrushes for a project to add some soap to the water he was using. You'd have thought I'd told him how to cure...

    Also if you think you might like liberal arts... do go check out Centre College! Fantastic school. It's an hour south of Lexington.

    you'll want to buy a car for certain--driving is your best bet to get around the area.

    I'd recommend Joyce Brinsfield at Ballyhigh or Elaine Schatt at River Mountain. I'm not a huge fan of...

    This is hilarious, but on a more serious note--Scrubby Bubbles makes a great gel stick thing for inside the towel bowel that will help keep it cleaner and not as stinky. I have heard really, really...

    Oh for Pete's sake that is absolutely ridiculous. I cannot decide who has the more idiotic state government: Georgia or Indiana. I can claim state residency in either and at the moment I'd rather...

    Eddie Bauer! I had to get mine taken in at the waist, but they are great. 6/7 inches seems to be the magic number for covering the right amount of leg, but they have them in various lengths down to...

    I like Black County. Do try a Voltaire. Where are you exactly? I'd recommend trying to find a reputable saddle fitter if you can (they typically have a lot of saddles on consignment). I'm in the...

    It's a combination of not-enough-experience rider with not-enough-experience six year old. For pete's sake, if I rewound over a decade ago this would be me with my six year old hunter except he...

    This. Are you still on your parents' plan or do you have your own? Either way, a PCP appointment is necessary to get the referral--heck the PCP might have a suggestion as to who to go to. I have...
