Why I Was So Disappointed With The Ending of 'Serial'

I like things neat. I like things to have clean conclusions. The ending doesn't have to be positive or even what I want as an ending, but I do prefer there not to be any lingering questions. After listening to the last episode of season one of the Serial podcast, though, lingering questions may be all I'll ever have. ...more
I do not. Serial is journalism. It's real life. Real life isn't often tied up in a neat bow at ...more

Alright, all you winter holiday celebrants. I hear your attempts at ho-ho-hoing, but I also hear a backbeat of something else. I hear you desperately trying to do whatever it takes to simply survive the holiday season somewhat whole and unburdened, refreshed instead of exhausted, and ultimately ready to embrace a rad new year. ...more
I guess I'm team Festivus, only because I'm too much like Ben to do Treat Yo'self.  Except I ...more

Gifts That Support Diversity and Intersectional Feminism

Perhaps you have a person in your life whose holiday wishes lean toward social justice, feminism, or diversity.

Capricorn Sun & Winter Solstice – Together Again on 12/21/14!

The Capricorn Sun on Sunday December 21, 2014, is the official start of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere and is the shortest day of the year. This Earth sign, ruled by stern Saturn, believes in duty, responsibility, and loves being in charge.

(Original post: http://mombabble.com/2014/12/10-things-we-still-love-as-adults/)The day you become a mom is the day that you  transition into becoming a bona fide adult.
