I used to have no problem with feeling sexy and comfortable in my body and with my sexuality. But after a recent weight gain, I started to be self-conscious and unable to get into the "Sexy and I Know It" mindset. I lost the weight, and I still can't seem to get back my confidence. My husband will compliment me, but I'll still find something wrong. I'm 24, so I don't know if this is just a phase. The only method that seems to get me in that uninhibited mindset is to have a drink. How do I tap into my dirty side and let out my inner bad girl freak without feeling...

The Internet is a pretty cool place. It gave us hamsters eating tiny burritos, unique languages that allow us to imagine what dogs and cats would sound like if they could talk and a Twitter account for The Iron Sheik (@the_ironsheik)--the Web's single greatest achievement, if you ask me. Through a series of inspirational Pinterest quotes and Upworthy videos, the Internet has also given many of us the drive to be epic. Each day we are reminded to live deliberately, eat like we give a damn and, most importantly, be amazing.

You are missed, Andrew Shaw. Since the undersized forward was injured in Game 1 of the series against Minnesota, the Blackhawks have tried to duplicate his scrappy presence, especially in front of the Wild net. The Hawks were successful in Game 5, creating a pair of ugly goals by Jonathan Toews and Bryan Bickell in a 2-1 victory. "He's a little fireball out there," Bickell said. "I know when we see him in the locker room he doesn't want to shut up. " On Tuesday, the Hawks tried to eliminate the Wild in St. Paul, where they looked less than stellar in games 3 and 4 in this series.

**1/2 (out of four) George Clooney goes to Hawaii in “The Descendants,” but no one should expect a movie as light and amusing as “George Clooney Goes to Hawaii” would be. (Memo to studio heads: I expect a producer credit when you move forward on this as-of-yet non-existent documentary idea.) Rather, director/co-writer Alexander Payne's first feature since 2004's “Sideways” takes place against a beautiful island backdrop where the family drama has all the stress-free glamor of Cleveland.

Before the advent of Daily Deals, coupons were only good for making collages, keeping grandmothers busy and lining your pet monkey's cage. Invest in Chicago's best-known online coupon maker with today's Groupon: $3 billion for purchase of the company, down from its $17 billion valuation in 2011 (a $14 billion value!). HURRY, ONLY 1 AVAILABLE! P.S. Please buy us. Just kidding. Groupon isn't actually listed for sale, and I don't advise walking up to its Chicago headquarters and trying to use the above fake Groupon.

The Muskegon Yacht Club on Lake Michigan is a small, white, rectangular building on Muskegon's Lakeshore Drive, and at 6:30 a.m. on the morning of Aug. 1, the loudest sound coming from the club was the jangling bells of the docked boats. On the backside of the building the letters MYC in bright neon lighting mirrored the early morning sunrise bouncing off the lake. All the boats were still, save one around the building's side in the parking lot.   The boat was a single-occupant rowboat called Liv, custom built for long-distance solo rowing.

So much for best-laid plans. A few years ago, a man asked his girlfriend to take a tour of Sixteen restaurant as they dined there. She wouldn't budge. Nervous, the man excused himself from the table. It was time for Plan B. He expressed concern to Keith Mallini, who was working at the Near North Side restaurant at the time. They regrouped, and the man returned to the table. Soon, the woman left the table to go to the bathroom. When she returned, there was dessert, champagne and rose petals.

I'm not going to try to persuade anyone that Bruce Springsteen is better than religion, but devotees of his music know what I mean. We talk about discovering his canon the way people talk about religious conversions. As someone I was particularly fond of once told me, "I figured you can't be that bad of a person because you like Bruce. " Springsteen's unparalleled career will hit yet another peak Tuesday with the release of his new album, "Wrecking Ball," and I'm happy to report it's absolutely terrific, as lyrically powerful and musically...

It's a whole different kind of shame for goalies who get penalized in hockey. Even when they commit a penalty, somebody else gets sent to the box while he stays on the ice to face a power play. To get the goalie's take on the "sin bin," RedEye caught up with the Blackhawks' Corey Crawford.   Have you ever been put in the penalty box? Corey Crawford: I started as a forward and then I was a [defenseman] before I became a goalie. So, yeah, I've been in the box. Do you feel guilty about another player serving your penalty?

Let's be honest: At this point, Netflix Instant is one of the only things getting us through this winter. Less than two weeks after its release date, 2 percent of the streaming service's users had seen the entire second season of "House of Cards. " I spent the better part of December and January re-watching "Frasier. " (Don't hate, "Frasier" is amazing.) So when it was revealed this week that "Dirty Dancing" was a new addition to our queue options, my reaction was somewhere along the lines of "yessssssssss omehgerrrrrd.

Let's face it: I'm smug about all the things I've been right about politically speaking. George W. Bush and the Iraq war would both be disasters, equality for gays and lesbians, the seriousness of global warming - the list goes on and on. Because I'm shooting like 99.9 percent from the field on this stuff, and I'm so totally annoying about it, I'll go looking for a Great Question of Our Times that will make me feel awful when I'm 80. Unfortunately, it's...

**1/2 (out of four) It may be the right call to end a movie whose characters need further verification of their heroism with Peter Gabriel covering David Bowie's "Heroes. " Closing "Lone Survivor" like that, however, cheapens the film instead of honoring its true-life inspirations. Based on the real 2005 "Operation Red Wings" mission that led to a deadly gunfight in the Afghan mountains between a small group of Navy SEALs and countless members of the Taliban, "Lone Survivor" -- how's that for a...

"Chicago P.D. " star LaRoyce Hawkins counts himself lucky to be working full time on a TV series without moving away from Chicago. The Harvey native and Thornton High School grad figured he'd eventually leave home for work after graduating from Illinois State University in 2012. Thanks to "P.D.," he didn't have to travel far. "It was an unexpected dream come true," Hawkins said. "I think when you get into this industry and you think about getting your big break, automatically you think that you got to move from home if you don't already live in...

It was not supposed to be like this. The Bulls fall from being arguably the most exciting team in Chicago to a team merely playing out the rest of the season because someone scheduled them 82 games. After the Derrick Rose re-injury, the Bulls have morphed into a movie montage of awful things happening in slow motion while everyone just sort of stands by and watches helplessly. The Luol Deng trade had to happen. The amount of money the team saves, the amount of talent in the lottery this year - it just made too much sense for too many...

Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but to hear White Sox starting pitcher Andre Rienzo tell it, the diamond at U.S. Cellular Field is his. "Man, the first day I come here, I get out and just look around for five minutes," he said. "For me, all this scenery is beautiful. I just enjoy all the time I'm here. " All it took was seven years in the minors five starts in the majors and thousands of miles of travel from his native Brazil for Rienzo to make history as the first Brazilian-born player to pitch in and win a Major League Baseball game, a 5-2...

It's not just you - the Bears and Philadelphia really have played each other an awful lot despite being in different divisions. They've crossed paths in the regular season the past four seasons, and each game has been decided by five points or fewer. Sounds like a perfect recipe for a rivalry. As the Bears (4-3) and Eagles (3-4) prepare to bump heads again Monday, here's what their most recent meetings have brought to the table.   Nov. 28, 2010: Bears 31, Philadelphia 26 Key ingredient: Validation The Bears had their share of doubters leading up to this game despite...

Michael O'Connor is a glass half-full kind of guy. His new sports bar, The Ogden, is set to open in a few weeks, just blocks east of United Center. The address will make it one of the closest bars to the arena, a prime stop for Bulls fans - that is, if there's a season. O'Connor, general manager at the bar and restaurant, and owner Joseph Panfil had thought their food-driven sports spot would be opening as the Bulls 2011-2012 season was picking up steam. Instead they're busy crossing their fingers that it will happen at all. "It's interesting, because this could...

"Ladies and gentlemen, the starting middle linebacker for your Chicago Bears … Jon Bostic!" Wait, what? For the 13 previous seasons, fans heard only one other name when each season started: Brian Urlacher. That won't happen again. Not when they host San Diego on Thursday in a preseason game, not ever. The reality of that may take awhile to sink in for fans. For Urlacher, it may take even longer. In the offseason, for the first time in his career, the franchise icon was told he was no longer good enough to play football.

It's been a bad year for Chicago baseball. The city's beloved ball clubs enter the All-Star break a combined 27 games under .500, and any hope created in 2012 on either side of town seems long dead. The 2013 season will be remembered by fans of either club as sad and painful, so it's the perfect time to ask an invaluable question: Which team makes it fans happier? RedEye developed a formula that considers 16 factors in the categories of regular-season and postseason victories, individual player performance, milestone games (a no-hitter, for example)
