I once listened to "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails for nearly 12 hours straight in an attempt to hurry along my inevitable descent into madness.
The Unexpected Positive Aspects of Being in a Relationship
I’ve always been the single type. Blame it on the parents’ bad marriage, the hookup culture, or the social awkwardness so entrenched into my personality. Take into account running with the wrong crowd for a brief period and discovering handsome strangers around every corridor in college. You have a 19-year-old girl who neither needed nor wanted to get wrapped up in emotions.

With this technique, you figure out your nutritional requirements —based on your goals, activity level, etc.—and work your meals into those numbers. It has many wonderful aspects, not the least of which is that it’s more flexible than other “diets.” However, like all great things, it has aspects which some may find distasteful (ie, math).
