Happy-Almost-Halloween, friends! Earlier today, I hung out with the folks at Good Morning America to share brilliant last-minute Halloween party hacks. I’m lookin’ at you, procrastinators!

Cancel culture—the phenomenon of deeming someone or something worthless, irrelevant, and over in response to transgressions big, small, ephemeral, and chronic—is our buzziest catchphrase as of late: There have been calls for canceling Saturday Night Live’s Shane Gillis, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, and comedian Dave Chappelle in the past month alone. President Trump told the U.N. General Assembly on September 24 that “a free people must never, ever be enlisted in the cause of silencing, canceling, or blacklisting their own neighbors.” (RIP, irony.) And on the Emmys red carpet, Sarah Silverman described cancel culture as “righteousness porn.” I get where she’s coming from, but I don’t think canceling is a bad thing. It’s also not a new thing, and before we

Friends come and go from your life in unexpected ways, and no matter what age you are, there are times when you find yourself wanting to stock up on a few more pals. Friends to go to the movies with, friends to go to restaurants with, friends to gossip with. Different and delightful people for all purposes and all seasons. But after the social whirl of school and university is over, how do you go finding a friend as an adult? Sofary.com surveyed over 1,000 people for their perspective on how difficult they believe it is to find friends as an adult, and how many friends most people actually have.

I hadn’t disclosed my early pregnancy to friends and family yet, much less to my employer. So while I’m sure my pregnancy wasn’t the reason for my termination, it definitely played a large role in how I personally experienced this massive change. I learned a lot from losing my job and looking for a new one while two months pregnant — including how to manage stress and network like I’d never networked before. But here are four other lessons that have stuck with me. 1. &
