Best tips you’ll get in this day and age
I wonder if I’d known this before that my relationship would’ve lasted longer…?
I am so over seeing Indian and Bollywood dancing on American television.
It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally just…done. This week, contestants on So You Think You Can Dance performed a “Bollywood” dance routine, now a staple of the show, to the usual wild applause from the audience and cautious praise from the judges. To be fair, the contestants were great. They are excellent dancers and performed the routine to the best of their ability. But no amount of arbitrarily loud costumes or wild hand gestures can distract from the real problem here.
Bollywood dance is, slowly but surely, becoming mainstream. I love that I don’t even have to explain the word in most settings now, because people have come to understand a general aura of Indian films and music. But if you learned about Bollywood from So You Think You Can Dance or some other network…

1. Cotton panties that came in a pack of three: I am just trying to live my life right now, I cannot be held to your patriarchal panty standards.
2. Extreme, heavily-padded pushup bra: No one is going to be taking this off tonight, so I can live the lie for some excellent cleave pics.
3. Neon: The POINT is to make it show through, this is called FaShIoN K
4. Bathing suit bottom: Laundry day.
5. Black cotton panties: I think we all know that there might be some stains in the future of these underwear, and I think we all know what kind of stains they are. These are the Sacrificial Panties.
6. Flesh-colored and seamless: This dress is somewhat sheer, and I am the kind of woman who pays her bills, organizes her closet, and prevents visible panties.
7. Spanx: I had a job interview today, don’t…

1. You ascribe intent.
Another driver cut you off. Your friend never texted you back. Your co-worker went to lunch without you. Everyone can find a reason to be offended on a steady basis. So what caused you to be offended? You assigned bad intent to these otherwise innocuous actions. You took it as a personal affront, a slap in the face.
Happy people do not do this. They don’t take things personally. They don’t ascribe intent to the unintentional actions of others.
2. You’re the star of your own movie.
It is little wonder that you believe the world revolves around you. After all, you have been at the very center of every experience you have ever had.
You are the star of your own movie. You wrote the script. You know how you want it to unfold. You even know how you want it to end.

For 90’s bolly kids like myself, life would never have been the same if it wasn’t for this particular movie. I know how to weave a friendship band. And I know you probably owned a “C_O_O_L” necklace like Rahul at some point in your life, too.
Today we’re rewinding Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, because rare things feel as good as a solid kick to the childhood.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is a beautiful story about the triumph of conformity over everything else. It is a heart-touching film experience which strengthens your ancient beliefs — don’t be yourself, especially if you’re a woman. By the end of KKHH, one finds themselves saying “Jeet hamesha p̶y̶a̶a̶r̶ sari ki hoti hai” (L̶o̶v̶e̶ sari always wins).
As we have learned, all 90’s Bollywood super hits start with a scene where someone’s reminiscing about the good days. That’s what happens here. We see a very sad…

Never used Tindr before, but I thought it was interesting!
DISCLAIMER: MOM AND DAD, I PROMISE I’M BEING SAFE OUT IN NEW YORK. NO, I’M NOT GOING TO MEET UP WITH THE CRAIGSLIST KILLER. OK, LOVE YOU.
Everyone knows about Tinder. In case you don’t: Tinder is a “dating” app for smartphones in which you look at people’s pictures and a brief bio, then swipe left if you don’t like them, and right if you do. If two people swipe right for each other, they get to talk to each other. They may then get to know each other, exchange phone numbers, nudes, etc.
The swiping/match factor is pretty genius. Automatically, you’re facing a lot less direct rejection. Perfect for horribly awkward introverts AND douchey men who don’t like to get their ego stepped on. It also makes Tinder game-like. There’s a competitive nature in trying to make sure every single person you swipe right is also a match. (The…
