Discuss Something: I’m a Tech-holic, You’re a Tech-holic, Everyone’s a Tech-holic

I was ten-years-old when I first logged onto the internet.  It was the summer of 1999, and my family had recently ditched the old Macintosh Color Classic for the newer, sexier, teal-er iMac.  The circular mouse fit perfectly in my dad’s warm hand as he glided the cursor toward the ‘connect’ button and waited for the … Continue reading

Search Something: Who is the Current Standard-Bearer for the Successful Twentysomething?

Is Lena Dunham, creator and star of HBO’s Girls, the successful ‘face’ of twentysomethings? Now, before you stop reading, this isn’t about extolling the talents of Ms. Dunham, nor is it about deriding them.  (In truth, being the non-cable person that I am, I’ve seen maybe five minutes of Girls via clips and promos).  This is about a … Continue reading

Search Something: As I Watch My Small Town Die

It’s late on a Sunday afternoon, and as I sit here in front of my computer with a muted football game flashing by on TV, I can hear a banner in front of my house whip softly in the breeze.  The only other sound is the occasional car passing by on the highway.  Some discarded … Continue reading

Discuss Something: Twenties Time

Tick tock.  Wait.  Tick tock.  Wait.  Tick tock.  Wait. When you’re in your teens, it feels as though you’re constantly going.  You’re going to school.  You’re going to practice.  You’re going to camp.  You’re going to prom.  You’re going to graduation.  You’re just going because that’s what society tells you to do.  That’s what you have to … Continue reading

Watch Something: What I Learned About the Emmys From Twitter After a Nine-Year TV Hiatus

Picture Something: Self(ie) Help

   Twentysomethings are associated with many ideas and trends, but none is more ubiquitous than the selfie:  the often maligned, yet still ever-present camera self-portrait.  They’re on Facebook.  They’re on Twitter, and you’d better bet they’re on Instagram.  (Yep,  I checked.  There are currently 45,359,032* public posts tagged with the term “selfie” on Instagram.  Forty-five million. … Continue reading

Question Something: The Dreaded Q

When you’re unemployed, there’s probably one question you dread most (well, except for those pesky interview questions):  “So, what are you doing now?” In most circumstances, this question, or the q, is an innocent inquiry meant to facilitate smalltalk and prevent awkward silences.  It’s like a more personal version of, “How’s the weather?” or, “How ’bout … Continue reading
