JUST A FEW OF MY 2000+ ARTICLES

Yes, you read that number right. I've written over 2000 articles. And while I don't think it's a smart idea for either of us to read through all of them right now (maybe later though!), I picked out a few of my favorites.

5 Super Common Email Lines That Make Us Cringe Every Time We Use ThemThe Muse

Sending emails can be surprisingly tricky. Not the literal act of sending, that’s one button, and it’s pretty basic. But actually writing those three or five lines always takes longer than it should. How do I start? How do I end? Where would this smiley face have the most impact? Probably right after the sentence in which I request that the person complete a huge project by an unrealistic deadline, right? [READ MORE]

The only thing I enjoy more than watching an Oscar-worthy film in theaters is watching a horribly scripted rom-com with wooden actors, cliche dialogue, bad accents, nonsensical plots and diabolical dads. So you can only imagine how much I loved watching Endless Love this week. You know what, I take that back. You can’t imagine that, because never in the history of horrible movies has a human being enjoyed a movie this much.
