At 28 years old, the business I had started four years ago was thriving. I filled what I called my free time with routines like making cash flow analyses on the whiteboard in my living room. I was organized, my apartment well put together and my appearance business professional. Still, I felt lacking and lonely. I wondered if passionate love could be the answer. Could I be as engaged with another human as much as I was with my own work? I used to say, “I want...

Three in 10 women will have an abortion by age 45, so there's a good chance you either know someone that’s had one, or you’ve had one yourself. Despite its commonality, abortion is still a controversial topic, and the current administration has further escalated the debate over women’s reproductive rights — for example, Trump's suggestion that women who have abortions should be published (which he later took back), and Pence's pledge to overturn Roe V. Wade. One of the ways that a society’s view of abortion...

Earlier this year, Simon & Schuster announced that Hillary Clinton publish a book about the 2016 election. This morning, more details were released, and they kinda feel like a punch to the stomach. The book is called What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton (I’m glad she kept the Rodham in there, because she took it out for her campaign book Stronger Together), and the cover is very simple. The title is in blue on a white background, while the byline is white on a blue background,...

We can all relate to quickly reading through those choose-your-own adventure books that let us make our own decisions as kids, without any adults telling us what was right or wrong. Now there’s a humor-based, illustrated grown-up version of the very same book type – In a Daze Work: A Pick-Your-Path Journey Through the Daily Grind, written and illustrated by Siobhán Gallagher. Just released earlier this week, the 160-page book covers the everyday decisions and scenarios that make up our lives as adults, from awkward small...

The California-based dark post-punk/deathrock band Ötzi is back with their first-ever LP (ready to be released this fall), and we are thrilled to premiere one of their songs, “Charms.” “Charms was inspired by fading fear-based traditions and how we still relate to them in our lives,” band member Gina Marie tells BUST. “In the video we decided to focus on the flip side of fear, and asked our friends to show off their own good luck charms and symbols of hope.” Their official music video shows people showing...
