What I never got about this movie is that there's a big point about how her dad is struggling financially to support the family (I think it even says that she's working at the falafel shop to help chip in), but they have a SWIMMING POOL in their backyard!
Also Freddie Prinze Jr.'s character has the ultimate in my-diamond-shoes-are-too-tight first world problems. OMG, I got into Harvard and Yale and Princeton! And my dad will foot the bill! The struggle is real.

That's the main reason I actually like the female trainwreck archetype. I feel like there's a lot more cultural endorsement of grown men acting like adolescents and a lot more expectation for women to be grown-up and get it together. Obviously there are problems with the trope, but I think it's nice to see women in TV/movies who aren't high-powered lawyers or whatever because that's not the reality for a lot of us in our 20s and 30s.
"Leftover women"? In a country with a major surplus of men?
I thought this was a lovely piece, but it does depress me how much of women's energy seems to be devoted to discussing the tired old topic of running out of time to find a man.

"I am oddly aroused by crying in my bathtub."
I found this line kind of poetic.
Apparently your skin builds tolerance to retinols, so it's better to start with a weaker OTC retinol cream first and then build your way up to using Retin-A. I use Philosophy Help Me and while I'm too young for serious wrinkles it definitely has helped even out my skintone and smooth fine lines. I had to work my way up really slowly to using it every night though because otherwise I would get redness and peeling.
I would also encourage anyone worrying about their wrinkles to CALM DOWN. I freaked out about mine way back when I turned 21 (!) and noticed some super faint undereye lines, but then I realized that everyone had them. A few fine lines at 30 is not a big deal.
Thank you so much for the hair question! I'm a heavy shedder and now that I'm growing my hair out it looks like so much more...I've run to my doctor no less than 3 times for reassurance. Glad to see I'm not the only lady who sheds like a fiend yet is still not bald.
Also, putting one of those little catchers on your shower drain is a big help. As for the sink, wipe that shit up and flush it before it gets down the drain!
I'm a lifelong Canadian and I still think Bloody Caesars are repulsive. As a Classics student I find this really disappointing and still served them at my Ides of March party last year.
I am opposed to coke because everyone who does it seems to be an asshole. (An asshole with more money than me...this theory may be part jealousy.)
Also, cokehead boys are bad lovers.
