New Year’s Resolutions: 2021

Quote of the Day: “Life’s not about expecting, hoping, and wishing. It’s about doing, being, and becoming.” 2021 is right around the corner! 2021!! Remember when everyone at the end of 2019 was like “2020 the year of clear vision! The best year yet! A new decade!” or something like that? Well, let’s make that 2021 instead of 2020. A new year brings new resolutions. My 2020 resolutions were flushed down the toilet, like I’m sure a lot of people’s were, but I am back and here to make some new ones!

Interviewing into the Real World: Erin

Quote of the day: “I literally hate spending money.” Direct quote from the legend herself, Erin Goode. How is this relevant to today’s post? First off, today’s interview is with Erin and secondly, she talks about finances and gives advice on how to save money. Erin just might be one of the most financially responsible people I know, so who better to answer my questions? Introduce Yourself (school, major, job, etc.)  I graduated from Cal Poly last year and now I work at a startup in the Bay Area. How has your life been since COVID?  Since COVID life has been much more boring. All I do…
