At least two more women come forward with Kavanaugh sexual assault claims

In The New Yorker, Ronan Farrow details the account of Deborah Ramirez, who remembers a freshman party at Yale where a drunken Brett Kavanaugh got his meat out and waved it in her face “I remember a penis being in front of my face,” she said. “I knew that’s not what I wanted, even in that state of mind.” She recalled remarking, “That’s not a real penis,” and the other students laughing at her confusion and taunting her, one encouraging her to “kiss it.” She said that she pushed the person away, ...

Can This Easy Money Hack Help You Avoid Overspending?

In my new book, Refinery29 Money Diaries, I talk a lot about figuring out how to afford the life you want, and that includes saving for future you (that's not necessarily "retirement" you, but also "five-years-from-now" you). Every financial advisor I've ever talked to will recommend you set aside 20% of your salary for those future goals, but in reality, it can be hard to save that much when you've got to pay rent and your student loans and you know, have a life.

Surfing on a Constantly Shifting Bed of Earthquaking Sand Dunes

Last week, I talked about going to a school that changed my life. The thing is, you don’t get to just change one part of your life at once. That’s not what life is. Life is where you surf on a constantly shifting bed of earthquaking sand dunes and you try to grab what happiness you can as it floats by amidst the chaos. Or something. Here’s the recap: 1. It starts with a bad job in Boston, and me hightailing it back to Arkansas to pursue music after a lifetime of pushing it away. 2. Then it moves...

Even in many offices that still have windows, those windows are left for the upper class highly paid to...
