Cheryl Panowski, who was accused of murdering her boyfriend last May, has officially been acquitted under the state of Maryland's controversial "You Do You" law. The law stipulates that if a defendant committed a crime out of "just needing to be real for a second," the case should be thrown out immediately.
In a perfect world, your male coworkers wouldn't need to see you as either a daughter figure or as someone they want to have sex with, and instead just see you as the qualified professional with three advanced degrees that you are.
A recent study featured in Psychology Today shows a direct correlation between self-esteem and whether or not you'd date Beetlejuice. Head researcher Dr. Karen Wazowski says that in general, when posited with the question, "Would you date Beetlejuice?" test subjects' willingness to date the ghost was inversely proportional to their level of self-esteem.

I was recently at a dinner party among people I didn't know very well (note to self: stop doing that), when the topic somehow turned to grown children of divorce. One of the guests made a comment along the lines of how she thought it made total sense that children of divorce would grow up to be negatively affected by the experience.
I have a very expensive brain. It attended a fancy, all girls preparatory school and was then sent off to one of those top-tier liberal arts colleges somewhere in Massachusetts. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been poured into this brain.
I'm going to say something that will not likely be very popular among a lot of people. I anticipate a lot of backlash. But here it goes: I think chivalry between men and women should die.
I was recently out at a birthday party in Philadelphia with a bunch of fellow 20-somethings, when the conversation (as it will) turned to sex and relationships -- specifically about whether or not it would be "dramatic" if two mutual friends of ours ended up hooking up that night, considering that each had only very recently gotten out of serious relationships and were by no means over their exes.
I recently started watching the NBC summer crime drama Aquarius. It's admittedly not the best show in the world, but I'm a big David Duchovny fan and it's definitely entertaining enough to binge watch on Hulu on a lazy summer Sunday.
I was recently in a conversation about the ever-growing string of instances in which white police officers used lethal force against black citizens, usually when it appeared to make little sense in the context of the situation.

Apparently color psychology can tell you a lot about yourself.
