One of the most recent celebrity splits in the headlines is Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz. Though it's got to be a a lot of pressure to hold down such a high-profile relationship, isn't it a little sad that every seemingly adorable couple has an expiration date?
As everyone tries their hardest to stick to their New Year's resolutions of losing weight or working harder, take a minute to reevaluate yourself on a different level. Get what you want this year by being honest - you owe it to yourself.
It's the end of the night at the club and the hottie you've been dancing with for 3 whole songs wants to keep in touch. But it's not about phone numbers written on napkins anymore - he says he'll hit you up on MySpace. Extra convenient or a little creepy?
It doesn't matter if you’re spending New Year's Eve in a packed nightclub or enjoying a quiet night at home with your significant other, it's the same protocol. When the clock hits 12, a toast is in order. And if you want to celebrate memories of the past year and envision an amazing year ahead, chances are you want to sip something that's nothing less than fabulous.
There's a designer in all of us. This holiday, be the Vera Wang of Christmas cookies, all while supporting a good cause. Put your own creative spin on the traditional gingerbread man (what man doesn't need a woman's expertise anyway?) and it will be added to the website's viewing gallery.
Nothing to do this weekend? Weather not so great? Planning on staying in? Well, how about... oh I dunno... becoming an internet celebrity?
"But wait! I don't know what to do," you're saying. It's quite simple. Get yourself a digital video camera and a subscription to youTube, and you're all set.
Make up a show. Write a stand up act. Perform a monologue. The choices are only limited by your imagination.
Need some examples? Here's some great ones.
Hope Is Emo - A silly web sitcom about an "emo" girl named Hope. Her feelings towards erasers on chalkboards are brilliant. "How many times has the word love... been erased..."
The Urban Ninja - A guy who dresses as a ninja and attacks random people.
Now it's your turn. Go!
Back in grade school, we spent a lot of time learning the Seven Wonders of the World, always disappointed to learn that almost all of them were destroyed in fires and earthquakes, and the only one still standing was built by aliens.
... okay fine, the pyramids weren't built by aliens.
However, the world has wised up, realizing that it's time to give ourselves a new set of wonders to teach our kids about. Ones that are still standing and visible.
New Seven Wonders, a website that already has well over 20 million votes, is allowing the public to CHOOSE their new set of wonders. The Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, the Roman Colosseum... the list goes on and on.
Tell your friends, and go cast your vote!
Planting and taking care of a tree is an easy task, even for those of us whose thumbs aren't exactly green. It can be a fulfilling and rewarding experience to watch it grow from a sapling into a tall, leafy tree. And the rewards aren't only personal... they can reach a global scale.
A recent project raised by United Nations environmentalist Wangari Maathai, suggests a world wide project to plant a billion trees to fight global warming, pollution, or the CO2 content that is currently heating our atmosphere.
"If you put your head inside a black plastic rubbish bag and breathe in and out five times, that's what the CO2 concentration is going to be like in 50 years," says Tony Simmons of the World Agro Forestry.
So make a difference this weekend. Grab some friends, get some gardening gloves, and take a run to the local landscaping store. If you're unsure of what to do, or would like some more information, check out these websites.

So Halloween has come and gone, and if you're like me, you've got a massive stash of trick-or-treat candy inside a pillow case in the corner of your room.
Now once you've sorted through all your treats and gotten rid of some of the bad ones, such as those Werthers Originals that the old cat lady from down the block gave out, your collection of pennies, and those organic fruit snacks from the neighborhood hippie, it's time to do something creative.
Why not make a desert?
Take out some ice cream and/or yogurt, and mix together a concoction of candy bits. Put some Junior Mints inside some brownies! The possibilities are endless, and your friends will love you for it.
