This Bot Auto-Likes Your Friend's Instagram Posts

Image: Pexels I tweet a good bit during the day, and almost always without fail my boyfriend is the first to throw a like on my posts, sometimes to a point that the like notification seems to come in the second I actually post my message. He’s fast, and after the first month or so of his quick-draw likes I remember asking him if he was using a bot to just blindly like my posts. Turns out, he had actually set up a notification so he gets a p...

Get Rid of Your Coffee Table

There was a time when my coffee table was my most prized piece of furniture. Before the days of “shelfies,” it served as the focal place of my living room, a curated display of my 20-something aspirations. On top of the rectangular sheet of glass perched on legs made of industrial copper pipes sat a couple sleek books— Design*Sponge at Home to showcase my modern aesthetic and Edible Selby because I loved the idea of going on culinary advent...

Perform a Life Audit to Set Yourself Up for Success in 2018

If you’re determined to get your life in order in 2018, all you need is a sharpie, some post-it notes, a blank wall, and an hour or two of free time. I first performed a “life audit” two years ago after reading this Medium post by Ximena Vengoechea. A writer and illustrator, Vengoechea detailed why it was important to take time to check in with yourself occasionally. “How are we doing? Where are we going? What’s important now that perhaps w...

Research Proves Switching to the Shorter Line Almost Always Backfires

Image: Pixabay When you’re in a grocery line that seems to be going nowhere, you shouldn’t make the switch to another queue. Unless that cashier just opened up next to you with no waiting, researchers say skipping from one line to another is actually counterproductive. Researchers at Harvard Business School recently discovered that when someone finds themselves at the end of a line they’ll be more inclined to make decisions that can backfir...

Use This Five-Point Guide to Find Patience When You're Annoyed

I am, and have always been, very easily annoyed. When I was little, I used to beg my mom to make my sister to stop singing in the car. “But it’s a happy noise,” she’d say. (She was right. I was being a jerk.) Annoyances are small, not serious problems, and it would make all of us and the people around us happier if we could learn to stop being bothered by them.

Leave Your Favorite Toiletries at Your Parent's House so They're There Next Time You Visit

Six years ago I relocated from North Carolina to San Francisco. The majority of my good friends still live in NC, which means a few times a year I end up visiting for at least a week at a time, sometimes longer. The first few of those lengthy trips brought up a dilemma: what do I do about things like shampoo and toothpaste? Because I’m allergic to my parent’s pets/the furry friends they’ve replaced me with, I always stay with the same frien...
