Janna

I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore! Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College. Fell in love with GR and have been here since! (Go Beer City, USA!)   Big fan of crime TV, the '90s (scrunchies! Saved By the Bell!), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.

15 Scariest Music Videos Ever (Video)

Halloween costume shopping this week has really put me in the mood for the holiday. While I do like the dressing up and celebrating part to Halloween, I'm not the hugest fan of the scary part-- horror movies, haunted houses, ghost stories. Hey, I'm kind of a wuss, OK? However, there is some fun to being just a little creeped out. The vids in Billboard's 15 Scariest Music Videos Ever list are definitely in the creepy category. Check out the Channel 957 artists' videos who made the list!

Kidd’s Kids: Make A Difference in a Sick Child’s Life

As a kid, I was lucky to be healthy. Getting my tonsils out was the most traumatic it got, and really, I just remember eating lots of popsicles. Good health was, and still kind of is, something I take for granted. Even now, I don't know what I'd do if I got really sick. I can't imagine being a child and having a terminal illness-- the tests and surgeries, the pain, worrying about your parents and siblings. Not to mention missing out on the fun--  the birthday parties, the school trips, even just going outside to play. And when I think about any possible way to help, I don't know where to start. Is there anything that I can do to help these kids? The answer is yes.

KISS Rocker Gene Simmons & Shannon Tweed Finally Get Married!

I'll admit it, I'm a Gene Simmons fan. My mother doesn't understand this: "Janna, he's a disgusting womanizer. And what about that hair?" She is right on both accounts, but for some reason I still find him charming. Well, as a womanizer, of course charm would be one of his strong points. I don't even really like KISS, I just really really like reality TV and will absolutely get down on a "Gene Simmons' Family Jewels" marathon on AE. So, I'm pretty glad to hear news that Gene and Shannon finally got hitched!

Gisele Bündchen’s Half Naked Commercial is Sexist? Gasp! No Way! (Video)

A Brazillian goverment agency wants a Gisele Bündchen TV ad pulled for being "sexist". Maybe I'm so used to seeing half-naked women on TV that it doesn't really phase me. I'm like, duh, of course it's sexist-  most bikini, lingerie (and for that matter, feminine hygenie product) commercials are. Also, the ad not being in English didn't really help me out.

Top 10 Best Cities For Families

So I'm not there yet, but at some point in the next 100 hundred years I'm going to start to think about raising a family. While my cat, Money Bags, and I are pretty mobile now and we could live just about anywhere, when the time comes, things like school district and low crime rate will play a role in the decision of where to settle my family. MSN Lifestyle has compiled a helpful list of the best cities for families in 2011.

Rock- Eating Pug Wins Outrageous Award

There are many reasons I don't own a dog. Mostly,  they just seem like a lot of work and money. Or as my brother said last weekend, "You just don't have the heart to be a dog owner." I was offened at first, then I realized that's a pretty true statement. Well, if I needed any more reasons, Harley, a pug from Rhode Island, has just given me one-- he ate over 100 rocks and then pooped them out. And now, he's getting an award.

Real Housewives Drama: 4 Fired, 1 “Kidnapped”

The drama continues for the Real Housewives' franchise and its stars. Last month, the suicide of Beverly Hills Housewives' husband Russell Armstrong  made headlines, along with speculation about how Bravo would handle the upcoming season. In the news this week-- 4 New York Housewives have gotten the axe. Bravo announced Saturday that Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Cindy Barshop, and Kelly Bensimon will not be returning for season 5 of the hit show. Perhaps the strangest RH buzz was the "kidnapping" of  DC Housewife Michaele Salahi.

Is College Worth It? (Video)

Not going to college really wasn't an option in my family. It's what you did after high school. We all grew up hearing that college was the way to succeed- to get a good job, to make more money. But in today's economy, does that still ring true? With the brutal job market and student loan debt now surpassing credit card debt in the US, is college still a good investment?

High School Bans Makeup and Removes Mirrors

I'm pretty minimalistic when it comes to makeup. I'll tell you what though, I look like a freak without mascara; with blonde-tipped lashes, it's just mandatory. I don't think I'd take it too well if any authority figure told me I couldn't wear makeup-- especially back  in high school, when I first realized my eyelash problem. Recently, a high school in Britian did ban makeup and even went so far as to take the mirrors out of the girl's bathrooms.
