"1 out of 5 relationships...

...begins online" according to Really? Wow. I don't know if that's impressive or depressing.

Everyone says there's no stigma attached to online dating anymore, but doesn't that mean there still IS a stigma? Because the people who say there's no stigma are the ones who ARE dating online, right? And the ones that aren't dating online believe there IS a stigma. So I guess, who really knows, right?

WTW: Boys will be Girls Part TWO

Hey guys,

Sorry i've been so MIA for the last week. I celebrated my birthday from Wednesday through the wee hours of the morning on Sunday and woke up feeling deathly ill on Sunday. Haven't been at work for 2 days and am finally back in the office. I know you've missed me dearly and I've thought of many ways to make it up to you for the remainder of the week, including sexual favors, baking cookies and lying on my couch in my underwear watching The Hills marathon now that the series is over for GOOD. (the last one I may or may not have done all day yesterday).

Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows that I am a HUGE Harvard Sailing Team fan. And if you think I'm talking about the actual sailing team at the university then you clearly don't read my blog.

I wish that I could be a California Girl...

Ah yes, the return from the beautiful city of Los Angeles. And now I'm back in the too-hot-too-humid city of Atlanta. I came to a realization a few weeks ago that a LOT of my closest friends have moved away. Soph is in LA, Meggie is in Oregon, Serena's in Charlotte, Catharine is in New York, J-baz is in Charleston, Carly is in Chicago and MK is in San Diego. And I'd almost take it personally if they didn't each have legit reasons for wanting to move to the places they've moved to. Whether it's for school, a new job, a non-profit, or to be closer to family, every single one of them has valid reasons for wanting to high-tail it out of Georgia and be at least 5 hours away from me. And yes, it's extremely narcissistic of me to make their change of geography all about me but I guess when birthdays roll around it makes me feel extremely lonely. And I kind of take it personally even though I know it's not their intent and I know I shouldn't. But yeah, the big 2-5 this year. ugh. It makes my neck hurt - must be growing pains, right?

Watch This! Wednesday - Return from Vacay

Thank you Beach Boys. I just got back from a FABULOUS trip to the west coast and I absolutely, with every fiber of my being, did NOT want to return home. First of all, my bestie Sophia lives out there. I had absolutely the best time ever! Got to do some shopping on Rodeo Drive, saw the Walk of Fame, ate at pinkberry, went to Santa Monica, went to Laguna Beach and saw where Kristen and Steven used to have all their "special talks", saw the NY Smiths (who were HILARIOUS) and lots more. I bought a new purse and some new clothes (LA's H&M's are so much better than Atlantas!) and am officially broke as a joke. But it was worth it. Sooooo worth it.
