The 14 Most Memorable Stories We Ran This Month

If I had kept count, I think the word cliché would have been uttered at least 200 times in MR HQ this month. Alas, I did not, so you’ll just have to believe me when I say we spoke about this month’s theme a lot. We discussed the clichés that signal adulthood, the ones that inspire our morning get-ready routines, and the ones that we plan on using as often as possible moving forward (watch out, bad eggs). Here are a few of the May stories that inspired many conversations this month:
