  • Lady Gaga, simple, elegant, fashionable.

What do you suggest for those of us who don’t have a tiger mom, but…based on the apparent outcome..want a tiger parent? How can I get more disciplined without a tiger mother?
The key word there is “apparent.” But okay, here’s my somewhat weird advice: go running every day. Even when it’s humid or raining or you are really busy. I’m not naturally fast or strong; running is by far my biggest source of self-discipline, and it helps in other aspects of my life. I ran a half-marathon this spring – it was really stupid of me, actually, I did it spontaneously between my morning and afternoon physics classes with no training – and since then, whenever I’m tempted to quit something, I tell myself, “Stop whining. You’ve done something infinitely more painful.”

  • Superstar Style Rookie Tavi started Rookie, an online publication for teens. This post is so retro cool and in particular I want this outfit. Rock on, Drew.

Can’t get enough of this chilled version of “Single Ladies” by Sara Bareilles. Thanks to my awesome music guru sister for sharing :)

  • Plinky. Answer interesting questions. Read other people’s answers to interesting questions. Think about stuff. This is my profile, but with daily posts here I’m not sure how often I’ll be writing :)
