1. Passover Seder when you’re trying to be an “adult”

It was almost impossible to live in NYC this week, as i felt like every single block i walked by the pizza would laugh at me through the foggy windows. So to celebrate Passover, miles away from my family, i decided to put on a mini-Seder with a good friend of mine. And of course, there had to be pizza. Matzo pizza!

3. Have you ever been on a job interview and thought to yourself – this job sounds terrible?

4. RIP Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

“Tell him yes. Even if you are dying of fear, even if you are sorry later, because whatever you do, you will be sorry all the rest of your life if you say no.”
― Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

5. From the dusty archives:

15 ways you know you’re starting to be a  grown up!


6.  Whenever you want to change your behavior toward someone – just think:

“I love you, I love you, I love you.”

7. I spent all day Sunday reading “One More Thing” by B.J. Novak and it was out of this world. Short story after short story had the kind of guts and humor that all writing dares to have.


I’m Jen Glantz. I’ve been a published writer for over 13 years, spilling my words into magazines (ranging from style to scuba diving), newspapers, websites and even this one time, a speech, for someone who didn’t speak a word of English. What drives my words, my site, my writing, is the power of relating to people. I find that many people, especially young girls, feel so alone and quite often they feel embarrassed. I want to shatter those feelings! I want them to read what I write and understand that it’s okay to be a little outside of the box, but most importantly, that it is okay to just be who they are.
