Q. I think I am bored. My brain feels mushy, my creativity stifled, and I am just tired--and 28 is too young to feel this way. I try not to let it affect me too much, but sometimes it is hard. The sad thing is, I don't know what else I want to do, and the longer I stay, the more afraid I am to try something else...
A. This email sounds exactly like one I might have written less than a year ago; trust me, I hear you. When I first moved to NY, I was working as the manager of a law firm while I auditioned for roles, but then slowly stopped acting...and had NO IDEA what I wanted to do. None.

READER GIVEAWAY: THREE SEEDS NATURALS LIP BALM.

Don't forget to send your reader questions to jordan@ramshackleglam by midnight tonight!
