Yes, The Bold Type is the show with the three girls screaming in a subway station; and, yes, it is exactly the show we need.

The world of The Bold Type is populated by fashion, city lights, and effervescent dialogue. But amidst all of the chaos lies the heart of the show: three best friends, all in their mid-twenties, all working through their own struggles. Though the very pink advertisements and Sex and the City comparisons give off the impression that The Bold Type is just 40 minutes of escapism in which women talk about shoes and relationships, it is so much bigger than that.

The Bold Type has tackled topics such as immigration, sexuality, women in politics, the BRCA gene test, and sexual assault with grace and integrity; and in doing so, it has shown us three women who are powerful and unapologetic.

These ladies are bold, but not in their readiness to scream in a subway station without regard to who’s watching.

They’re bold in their vulnerability and willingness to admit they want love.

They’re bold in their ability to acknowledge when they’re wrong and apologize.

They’re bold in their quickness to stand up for one another.

They’re bold in their awareness of what they deserve.

These ladies are bold because they stand up for what they believe in, especially when what they believe in is themselves—which is something we could all try a little more often.

So, in the spirit of this sparkling, relatable, and socially relevant show getting renewed for two more seasons, here are some of the most iconic quotes from season one that is guaranteed to empower you to live your boldest life.


1. When you need to put yourself out there more.

2. When you're feeling stuck....

3. ...But you're caught between doing what's safe and doing what you love.

4. When you're not the best at what you do, but, my god, do you love it.

5. When you have to fake it till you make it.

6. When you realize your worth and hope he does, too.

7. When you don't give yourself enough credit

8. And when you're terrified of letting people down.

9. When you finally hit your breaking point.

10. When you need to realize that life is tough but you are so much tougher.

11. When the guy you thought was attractive turns out to be the actual WORST.

12. And he underestimates you.

13. When there's something you've secretly always wanted to do but never had the guts to try.

14. When you decide to go for the thing that scares you most...

15. ...And it all works out.

16. When the world has absolutely no idea what it's up against.

Here's to living boldly.

Board Games Are More Important Than You Think They Are

They've become a defining part of my family.

Remember when you were a kid and you'd have a family game night? Or your friends would come over and you'd open the game cabinet and play at least three different games together?

Maybe it's just me, but those are some of my best memories from my childhood. My family loves games, board games, and electronic games.

Of course, as I got older, gaming consoles like PlayStation and Wii became more and more popular. That meant that the game cabinet was opened less and less, collecting dust.

Thankfully, I live in New Jersey near the shore and Hurricane Sandy left my family with no power for five days. Sure, it was scary not having power and walking around my neighborhood seeing fallen trees or roof shingles, but we were inland enough to not have had any flood water damage.

No power also meant no PlayStation or Wii games. The gaming cabinet was opened again, this time with vigor. Now, four years later, and I still think about sitting in the dark with a flashlight playing Scrabble with my family.

That was also the week I learned how to play Yahtzee and dominated my dad in every game. My sister constantly was looking for someone to play her to Battleship. We exhausted Rummikub.

The game was already a family favorite, and that's including extended family. Family barbeques had been ending with late night games of Rummikub for at least a year by the time Sandy hit.

We were ready to strategize and crunch numbers, but after day three, we never wanted to a number ever again.

This semester, there's been a surge of board game love again in my family. My sister bought Jenga, which we are currently trying to exhaust ourselves with. My favorite board game also had a comeback: Life.

I loved this game so much that I had the SpongeBob version as a kid. I would play it with my best friend, just the two of us, playing game after game of Bikini Bottom themed Life. Now, I have a car full of "kids" that I've started to make pets in my head. I can handle having five pretend dogs, but not five pretend kids.

I don't know what it is about board games, but my family has always had an affinity for them. We've gone through our cycles of playing video games and card games, but we always come back to the classics. Maybe it's more a defining part of my family than I originally thought.
