    Hi. Great collection again. Enjoyed everything I’ve read and watched. But I’m gonna have to disagree with Ryan Holiday. I see his point of view, and it’s a very well written piece. But I must respectfully disagree with this article. The Hollywoodized culture has definitely formed many minds on a soulmate mindset. It’s so wrong to sell such wrong ideas to people.

    I enjoyed reading the article about the perfect spouse being the best life hack. But how will I know when I have found the perfect spouse for me?

      You may not think that someone is “the one” at first, but as you learn more about yourself you come to find that your ideas on who “the one” is change. I believe the person you want to marry shouldn’t have to be perfect. If they were, there would be no way to grow closer to that individual by working through disagreements together.

      Good question. Since no human being can be perfect, I would say you’re going to need to look for the perfect love. When it feels right, you’ll know it. Good luck! 🙂

    It’s so refreshing to see such courageous women like Gail Chovan in this narrowminded male dominant society of ours. I’ll be sure to share this video on any platform I can to show my support. It’s the least we can do.

    • Avatar of Carla Marie

      Gail Chovan certainly is one of the strongest women of our day! After watching the video on here, I visited the YouTube Channel of StyleLikeU and came across many other inspiring women like herself. 🙂

    This is very inspirational in and of itself. I checked out the 2nd article and absolutely loved it. That is a really great advice. It even fits perfectly with my focus for this month. I’ll re-read all of these again today to bolster my spirits.

    Wonderful news about the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection! As a visual arts educator for 8 years, this would have been a valuable resource for Art History lessons. With budget restraints, buying prints, etc has been nearly impossible. I thank you Urbanette Magazine for helping us find out about this amazing news!

    I can relate to the article about Upper East Side. In my opinion The Upper East Side is the only real authentic New York neighborhood left in the city.

    • Avatar of Meggie Chambers

      . The Upper East Side is an authentic New York neighborhood .. but certainly not the last. I love the fact that it is clean, quiet, devoid of crowds and tourists and the less desirable types (i.e. certain disrespectful students, drunkards, loudmouths, those that litter, etc.) and the UES has more pleasant weather (not as hot in the summer or cold in the winter as downtown – as proven by a recent study, and without the horrible winter winds). I still visit downtown but am so happy when I return home.

      Yes, the neighborhood is “buzzing thanks to a spate of restaurant, bar and retail openings” (including gourmet grocery stores) … so now I have even less of a reason to leave my neighborhood – unless of course I am traveling to the airport to jump on a plane. 🙂

    I see some skeptic comments about MET’s digital gallery. And its sort of upstes me. The museum has published what is fundamentally an educational resource. Not every person who has access to the internet has the opportunity to travel to large cities to see big art collections. The ability to peruse “digital” collections provides a significant boost to art appreciation, art history studies and just plain enjoyment.
