She signed up for Pacifica Graduate Institute's four-week-long course on analytical psychology called, "Alchemy, Romanticism, The Red Book and the New Myth of Our Time" in hopes she'd find the answers she needed.

REFLECTION: 'Shrill' gives us the body representation we needed

As a little girl, I grew up fantasizing about the day that I would miraculously lose weight and become the kind of person I'd always wanted to be: thin, and therefore, beautiful. My false hope for a fairytale weight-loss story is attributed to the movies and TV shows I grew up watching as a child.

Kent, a small town with big music

It's January 1974, and the Kent State Undergraduate Student Government has booked the up-and-coming artist Bruce Springsteen to perform on campus. To popular music fans at the time, it might not have sounded like a big deal. But to students at Kent State, they could sense Springsteen's super stardom before major radio stations ever thought to put his tracks on rotation.

Forget Everything You Thought You Knew About Facial Oils

From a young age, we're taught that oily skin is our enemy. For some reason, we are encouraged by society (and our mothers) to reject anything for our face that involves oil-based products. Well, we're here to debunk that outdated myth. Imagine if you hadn't had water in days.

Trends Don't Die, They Hibernate

You know those pictures of your mom from the '90s where she's wearing sunglasses so small they look like she stole them from Ozzy Osbourne himself? A total tragedy to look at five years ago, but now they're a big style inspiration!
