Texas is the Bestexas
I’m having a really hard time resigning myself to return back home to L.A. tomorrow. Since I am the O.G. “Mr. Suffers-from-Horrible-Anxiety-if-I’m-Gone-from-L.A.-4-Too-Long” (it’s such a sad, urban neurosis, let’s not even go into it, I’m already embarrassed typing that), I’m very surprised that I’ve been struck down with this sentiment of...
Anonymous asked: Dear Ed, I've got a lady dilemma and I need your advice. You always have the best pearls of wisdom and I'm not quite sure who else to ask. In short, I recently started working as a TA for a professor that I had a class with a few months ago. She was always extra nice to be, even when she had a reputation for being harsh with other students. As the semester progressed I noticed that...
Says so much, yet so little about a person.
Pat and Jess
I just found out that my friend and Boston College freshman roommate, Pat Downes and his wife Jess, were severely injured in the Boston Marathon bombings. This tragedy really hit home for me, and I have been praying and sending positivity to Pat and Jess ever since I found out. Without a doubt, Pat Downes is one of the most caring, resilient, altruistic, and kind humans that I’ve ever...
Kate Spencer: Patriots' Day →
katespencer: I am devastated today. I am a born and raised Massachusetts native, and grew up outside Boston. I am grieving for my city today, as we all are. But I feel hope today, too. Patriots’ Day is a special day in Boston. It’s the day I’m always most homesick for my hometown. It’s a state holiday -…
Boston, You and your people are in my heart and prayers. You are one of the best cities I have ever been to/lived in, and I love you. You will get through this tragedy with strength, grace, and resilience. Love, Ed
My Best Date
I want to tell you guys about my best date ever. And no! It’s not April 25th! But like April 25th, it wasn’t too hot, and it wasn’t too cold. Without boring you guys with all the minute, mundane details: I had just purchased my first car, and I drove down to Laguna Hills to “hang out” with this boy. He was tall, cute, and very, very smart. He was a biology major (and is now a scientist), and...
The Mack Move
Last night, I pulled the ultimate mack move and told this dude that he had the best set of eyebrows I had ever seen. Now I just have to sit back and let destiny do the rest!
Anonymous asked: My best friend keeps going back to a person who fucks up royally then apologizes only to get back in my friend's good graces (they grovel spectacularly, really, they deserve an Oscar). Am I obligated to put up with this person that I never really liked to begin with? I feel like a bitch when I tell them I don't want to hang out with them if they're with that person.
Anonymous asked: ed, why doesn't anyone pick you up for an advice column/blog? have you had offers?
Anonymous asked: Honey, I hope you can help a girl out. I remember you wrote before about “teaching people how to treat you” & I need some boss bitch advice. I’m having an issue w/4 of my friends that I’ve had for 7 years where they now basically only contact me when they want/need something from me. If they don’t need anything, they don’t bother answering. Clearly,...
