Celebrating the Diverse Women of Indie Music

I—like many of us here at LD—am a big fan of women in indie music. Jenny Lewis, Lady Lamb, and lots of other brilliantly talented ladies with flawless bangs rank among my all-time favorite artists, and were originally to be included when I decided to make a playlist of women in the indie scene that everyone should be paying attention to....more

I always thought I could never run because I hated it and my lungs would scream at me after a quarter of a mile. However, my friend Ally invited me to run with her during our sisters' basketball practice and I actually ended up liking it! I can only run about 1.5 miles now but I'm working up to a 5k. Small goals are key, in my opinion....more
