Your life problems DO NOT EQUAL your coworkers life problems. Marriage? Kids? Mortgages? ... I can't relate. Everyone is married and all you have is your dog. People go to you for technological problems because you're supposed to be an "expert." However, this isn't the case with me. Everyone in the office knows more about fixing… Continue reading 10 Signs You’re One of the Youngest in the Office
I don't know if you're a few months or years out of your last semester, or if you're a fresh spring-chicken-of-adulthood wondering about all those scary, questionable "somedays", but it doesn't really matter.

If there's anything that can reduce most people to a nervous, chattering (or silent) mess, it's a job interview. They suck. We can agree to disagree, but in MY opinion, they SUCK. In preparation for my interviews, I felt like I was studying for a final that I only attended one class out of the entire semester… Continue reading The. Dreadful. Interview.

Myth: You're a senior so you obviously have your whole life planned out, including but not limited to: where you'll be working, who you're marrying, how many kids you'll have, etc. Reality: You're a senior, so getting out of bed is a humongous accomplishment. Everything after that is an added bonus. Myth: You'll be great… Continue reading Senior Year: Myths vs. Realities
I only have one life. What will I do with it? Well, for starters, I will be stressed to the max. A perfectionist. A people-pleaser. Even when I'm a kid. I'm going to do so many things I never wanted to do. I'm going to live with thin skin, where I let every insult wound… Continue reading What Will You Do With Your One Life?
