So earlier this fall, my childhood of ballet, pointe, and being a lanky kid with weak ankles caught up with me when I was diagnosed with the early stages of arthritis in my left ankle. There are good days and bad days but my doctor says taking a daily glucosamine vitamin paired with exercise will keep it from getting worse.
So here’s where the crowdsourcing comes in. Obviously running (my preferred form of exercise) is out. I’m lucky if I can get up to a jogging pace right now and even that makes me nervous. I’m convinced I’ll collapse on the sidewalk if I run too fast. I can’t be the only one out there dealing with this right? Do you or someone you know (who isn’t elderly and likes to be fairly active) have arthritis? What do you do for exercise?
Eva Chen says Lucky Magazine's target reader is "far enough along in her career that she doesn’t feel stressed by a credit-card bill when she is buying a $3,000 bag, but at the same time loves a $30 pair of crochet shorts from J. Crew."
I’m apparently not Lucky’s target audience and I’m suddenly incredibly jealous of anyone who fits that description.
“Everyone wants to talk about how he died, too, but who cares? One moment in his whole life; I care more about how he lived.”—The Glee farewell to Finn/Cory was heartbreakingly beautiful. (via luciwithani)
Truly well done. I really admire the cast for working through their grief so that they could help the fans say goodbye to Finn/Cory.

Hi Lauren! I stumbled upon your blog and started reading your posts. They are great... you're really funny and talk about really life problems too, which I appreciate. My question is, what is one (or more) piece(s) of advice you would give to someone who wants to one day live in NYC? Thanks! ~ Kristi
Thank you so much!
My number one piece of advice is don’t be afraid. Living in New York is going to be the biggest roller coaster ride of your life. You’ll have days where you are totally and completely enamored with the city and you’ll have days where you think “everyone (including myself who willingly lives here is totally insane. Get me out of here.” But then you remember you are in the coolest city in the world and if you’re being smart and trying every opportunity available to you then you’ll be able to say “this. this is why I live here.”
I may not have a lot of money in my savings account and some days wonder if I would be more “settled” if I lived in the suburbs, but then I remember I get to do and see things that some people only dream of. And at this point in my life, that’s enough.
