13 Truly Spooky Stories (for Grown-ups!)

Once you become an adult, most of the traditionally “scary” Halloween figures lose a lot of their clout: “monster” is a word we casually throw around to describe coworkers who don’t take out the trash when it’s full, ghosts are just jerks who never text you back (even after what you thought was a really nice date!), and “boo” is an adorable thing that Aziz Ansari says.

How to Make the Most of Your Terrible Job

We’ve alllllllll worked terrible, horrible no good, very bad jobs. While it’s fun to talk to trash on those jobs while we’re still working them, oftentimes, once we leave a bad job, we just want to cut all strings, pretend it never happened, wipe it from our memory Men in Black style, etc. But while your job might’ve felt like a waste of time, simply writing it off as “that...

Yes, those ten glorious weeks out of the year when HBO bestows upon us a lineup of TV shows so incredible that it tricks us into actually looking forward to Sunday nights. Ten weeks in which we can spend Sunday evenings blissfully escaping into...
