60 years ago today, lovable redhead Lucille Ball burst into living rooms everywhere on the I Love Lucy show. Ball and her real-life hubby Desi Arnaz star as husband-and-wife Ricky and Lucy Ricardo. For six seasons, Lucy managed to get herself into all sorts of shenanigans, often with on-screen BFF Ethel Mertz (played Vivian Vance), leaving Ricky to pick up the pieces, along with Ethel's husband Fred (played by William Frawley).
The Mertzes and the Ricardos
I Love Lucy was the most-watched show on TV for 4 out of 6 seasons, and it was the 1st show to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings. The sitcom is still beloved by many---it is seen by 40 million Americans every year. At the height of its popularity, I Love Lucy spawned many retail products, like these matching pajamas for happy couples:
Another fun fact: Lucille Ball was actually pregnant with Lucie Arnaz during the 1st season, and though she was "showing," they made no mention of it as it was thought it might be in poor taste. (CBS wouldn't even allow

Your life story and experience have greater importance and market
I am only 14, and I feel like I have already experienced the pain of a 30 year old woman. The thought of having to wake up is already depressing to me. People ask why I tired as much as I am. Expecting me to be the life of the party, or in my case, the classroom. As if I don't have a mother looking down on me every time my report card comes home. I don't want to let my mother down. But i don't want to lose comfort of my friends. So I try my best to do neither. But I am sadly failing at both.Read More »from User Post: On being a teenager
The pain inside my heart every time I am yelled at or looked down upon makes me want to cry dearly. A teenager should not have to bare so much pressure. For it can only push us away from the good that lies in our hearts. We feel as if no one is listening, only throwing demands in our faces. We push the demands away so much as to where it turns into disrespect. We never mean to disappoint our family and friends. We just don't want judgement rubbed in our faces as if we are just going to take it.

I am currently a graduate student completing my Ph.D. The past two years have been rocky, to say the least, in my personal life. There have been some pretty serious trials (including confronting my coworker turned stalker), and I am doing my best to move on and live life as well as I can. In order to somewhat celebrate or commemorate what I have been through and survived (and to serve as a reminder for when things get rough), I have been wanting to get a tattoo. It is something I have been thinking about for over a year so not just a spur of the moment idea. It will be nothing flashy or large, but I am planning on it being in a visible (on my wrist). I would like for it to be able to be covered up with a large bracelet or watch band if necessary, but I don't know if that is completely possible.Read More »from To tattoo or to not tattoo...
Considering that I want to enter into academia or industry and have a serious professional life, do people think that having a visible tattoo will hinder this? If you have ever interviewed

I am a grown up foster chicken...er... I meant foster child- from the 1970's era. The reason my identical twin sister and I were placed in foster care in 1973 was because my mom died when we were just 11 years old, and my dad was already disabled. He was paralyzed from a massive stroke he suffered when I was 7 years old, which left him in a wheelchair for the remainder of his life. Social Services became a part of our daily lives because they would send home health aides to take care of my dad and us girls by cooking and cleaning while my mom was in and out of the hospital with stage four breast cancer.
It wasn't called Child Protective Services back then, it was called Social Services. My social worker bent over backwards to keep our little family unit of four from coming unglued while my mom was sick, but sometimes the strongest glue can't hold it together when one third (my sister and I together made up one third) of the whole unit is ripped away so suddenly. It's akin
I like to think that, considering what I went through as a child growing up, I'm a relatively strong, and normal person on the outside. The war on the inside is a completely different story.Read More »from Coming to Terms? Maybe Someday...
I won't bore you with all the gory details of my childhood, and I am certainly not here to create a sob story for you all to feel sorry for me. But, to make an 18 year story short, I grew up in foster care, with a 7 year stint living with my extremely disillusioned and abusive Mormon grandparents. The innocence of every day things, such as Yogurt, Milton's Whole Wheat, Pork and Beans, and The Bible were tainted because of their radical beliefs and ideals. These simple things were used as abuse mechanisms, such as my grandmother forcing over a gallon of Yogurt down my throat for not cleaning my room, or only giving me one piece of moldy bread for a day because I left the cap off of the toothpaste. Not to mention that my grandmother had a bit of a violent streak that kept my two sisters and I on our
