Runway Laps and Thigh Gaps

Saddle up folks, the Victoria's Secret Fashion show is back in action tomorrow! The music, the pageantry, the breasts, the butts, the Angels...all of it. Let's all get in the mood with some acoustic Bieber from last year's show. Enjoy... As much as we hate to admit it...Bieber kinda killed it. Drop the mic, Justin. Honorable mention to the sketchy dude in the vest playing the guitar at the beginning! Now, the VS Fashion Show serves many purposes and causes many different reactions/emotions.  It's informative, entertaining, sexual, depressing, ridiculous, outrageous, mesmerizing, vain, comical and plain ol' American! Twitter pretty much explodes during the show, even making it educational. What a well rounded event! For example, I had no idea thigh gaps were so important to women. I mean, if your thighs don't touch, you don't have to worry about chafing, and leap frog is probably a little bit easier, but besides that...is it really THAT important? Leading up to the show, every girl undoubtedly...

Pick Up Basketball

A couple months back the geniuses over at DudePerfect created one of the most relatable videos I've ever seen. Check it out below. Anyone who has played pick up basketball at any point in their life, has run into at least one of these stereotypes...or, is one of these stereotypes. My friends and I play pickup basketball and in Men's Leagues way too much and take it way too seriously. We treat it like the NBA Finals most days. We bicker like our lives depend on it. We sometimes don't speak to each other for days over things that occur on the court. We all think we are way better than we probably actually are. Quite simply, its beautifully awesome. Once you graduate college and come to terms with the fact that the NBA or NFL doesn't want you, intramural sports is all that's left. Some people play for the purpose of getting exercise, or getting away from their wives/girlfriends, but most, in...

Thanksgiving Thoughts

There's plenty to be thankful for this year. I run one of the biggest websites on the Internet a goofy website, I have been out of Corporate America for almost a year now, I lost 35-lbs the last 18-months (which I plan on gaining back today), I have my health, a loving supportive family, some pretty cool friends, and I'm pretty happy with life in general at the moment. Now's the time of year to get all sentimental and mushy about our loved ones, to spend time with family you don't get to see often, and for sending out passive aggressive annoying mass Happy Thanksgiving group text messages! This has been a pretty crazy year in my life and I definitely have plenty to be thankful for. I asked some friends what they were thankful for this year, one normal and one unconventional. The answers were pretty funny...enjoy! Girls: The Usual: family, health, my awesomely fun friends, all the opportunities God has given me,...

Potty Mouth

While we haven't been immersed in Corporate America for almost a year now, this NPTW contributor has. He puts his pants on one leg at a time like the rest of us but over time has meticulously cultivated a list of unique individuals that exist at most companies.  For those of you that, unfortunately, are forced by "the man" to wear pants to work, you have undoubtedly encountered various types of obnoxious work place behavior and stereotypes. On any given workday, we all come face to face with little annoyances, that when piled up, make you wanna go Office Space on your printer. People are weird, we get it, we're kinda weird too. But, today, we tip our caps to the lunatics who take social norms and etiquette to a whole new level. You've probably got nicknames for these people at your office. Pit-Stain Jerry, because even if it's 12-degrees outside, Jerry is hot like fire and dripping in sweat. Crying Sarah, who, just...

The Hunger Games

With the 2nd installment of The Hunger Games opening this week I felt it was important to discuss a different kinda Hunger Games. Working in corporate america, at a publicly traded company, with lots of rules, policies, and politics taught me some things. My biggest takeaway? People behave like wild animals and get indescribably happy/excited over free food. I call this phenomenon...THE CORPORATE HUNGER GAMES! I'd be sitting at my desk, see I had a new email...and before I had time to check it, the sounds of a nearby stampede. It's like in Jurassic Park, when the T-Rex is approaching, and the glass of water starts trembling. What's going on? Is there a fire? "OMG, DID YOU NOT CHECK YOUR EMAIL?!" THERE IS FOOD IN THE BREAK ROOM! WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS OR HOW MUCH THERE IS BUT WE MUST PRESS ON! FOLLOW ME, FOLLOW ME TO FREEDOM." You can learn a lot about a person by how they act...

Pregnant and Pants Do NOT Go Together. Period.

The most feminine post in NoPantsToWork history. Here comes a post from a long time friend who just so happens to be 20-something and preggers. Not like MTV 16 and pregnant style. She's got her act together. Apparently pregnant women really really hate pants, so, obviously, we're cool with that.   I used to love a good skinny jean. Teal, yellow, orange, blue jean...they were all fantastic. My legs looked great, they're comfy, and can be worn year round. Then, I got knocked up... The first couple of weeks of pregnancy have their ups and downs, but vomit, headaches, and constipation aside, clothes still fit and you are just flat out excited. Fast forward to 4 months in...and I'm singing a different tune. It's all fun and games til' you can't button your favorite pair of Sevens. Finally, I gave in and made a trip to Destination Maternity. Thankfully, I found a pair of jeans that resembled the cute skinny jeans I could...

Hey, What’s Your Major?

Katie is a 5th year senior currently finishing up her victory lap at The University of Georgia. She has battled anxiety, restraining her sarcasm, and being too short to ride roller coasters her entire life. Take it away, Katie! Editor's note: Kinda intense/deep post, we recommend listening to the soothing sounds of Enya while reading. It hasn’t been until recently, and by recently I mean in the past 48 hours, that I’ve gotten excited about graduation. I get to take pictures, I get to see my grandma and I get all sorts of cash from family members to party and spend time with my family. My bff is graduating as well and our families are going to do a brunch together. We're white girls, sooooo brunch is a pretty big deal and cause for massive amounts of excitement. Plus, I’m not going to have any more exam-induced break-outs, thank god. It’s all going to be great. Oh but here’s the thing, aside...

5 Types of People You Meet On an Airplane

Traveling is an ordeal, and no matter how short the flight is, it's usually an all day affair. You hurry to get to the airport, you wait in lines through security. You get the distinct pleasure of taking off your belt and shoes and placing all your belongings into a plastic bin. If you're lucky enough, you get groped by TSA. Then, you wait at the gate, you wait on the plane, you wait on the runway. You land, you wait on the runway again. During this whole process where people watching is king, you meet a fair amount of characters. Lets focus on a few people you meet on the plane. 1) The people who stand up the SECOND the plane lands and grab all their stuff...with nowhere to go. These are arguably the worst human beings on the face of the earth. Not really, but these people make me more mad than anyone else on a plane. I have one...

Sunday Demons

Picture this...It's Sunday morning, you just got done with a Friday/Saturday bender after swearing you weren't going out this weekend. UNLEASH THE DEMONS! The Sunday demons that is. You know the Sunday demons. That little pit in your stomach you feel but you're not really sure why. THAT my friends, is the Sunday demons. Sundays have the oddest dynamic of any day of the week. You can do whatever you want because there's no work, but you can't, because...you have work tomorrow. If it rains on a Sunday, take everything I'm about to say and multiply it by infinity, we're all goners. "Moral Hangovers" are infinitely more miserable than physical hangovers. Did you text your ex at 3am saying "I miss you" or "you have no idea what you lost you filthy bitch" while crying yourself to sleep? Did you wake up with an empty pizza box next to your bed with ranch and crumbs all over your face? It's cool, OUR...

We, Are Never, Ever, Everrrr Getting Back Together: My Breakup With Corporate America

It’s 10 a.m., and I have yet to put pants on today. Why? Because I don’t have to for the time being. I have embarked on an exciting, terrifying, and fulfilling adventure of working for myself full-time.  How’d we get here? I’m not really sure… this is how I remember it. College ended…which basically meant MY world ended.  Eff you world! During college, I figured I’d get an awesome job at some cool tech company when I graduated. I’d get to work on a ton of cool projects, win them multiple company softball championships, and be CEO in about a year. Not really… but I figured I would at least find a job that didn’t make me miserable. Now, I’m sure 99% of people my age, at some point or another, have said some variation of “I am not meant to work a normal 9-5” or “I just can’t sit at a desk for 8 hours a day for the rest of...
