When I was asked to binge Reese Witherspoon movies and reveal what it did to my brain, I didn’t go immediately to the hits. I’ve always loved how Witherspoon has been able to vacillate between a badass teenage girl with a shitty home life (Freeway), a pristine good-girl who is actually pretty OK (Cruel Intentions), a super girlie-girl who is far from as “stupid,” as she’s perceived to be (Legally Blonde), a patient and oblivious girlfriend to a murderer (American Psycho), a bad girl who — gasp!
1. Go to a pumpkin patch. It's autumn, it's romantic, and then, at the end, you get to use knives in a fun way! 2. Go on a museum date. Art! And staring at things instead of talking. 3. Have dinner and see a movie. Eating food and watching someone tell you stories is a classic for a reason. 4. Take a long walk together. You don't need a destination because you have each other. Aww. 5. Go on a picnic. Few things are more romantic than packing up an old-fashioned picnic. If you've never done this, now's the time.
1. Getting your own washer and dryer. You'll never have to use some skeezy washer that someone just bleached their jean shorts in again! 2. Going to your first doctor's appointment with your own insurance. Not your parents' health insurance; actual health insurance that came from your grown-up job! Now if you have problems with something, you don't call your parents, you call your provider because it's yours! 3. Moving into your first solo apartment.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
