The Stresses of a 20-Something

Quote of the Day: “Nothing will ruin your twenties more than thinking you should have your life together already.” “Your twenties are the best time of your life.” Have you ever heard this before? I certainly have. When I was in middle school and high school, I would dream of being in my twenties. I thought I would finish college, move to this amazing city, work a big-girl job, be married by 28, have a kid by 29 and yada yada. As I write that out, I’m starting to think I got that “perfect life” idea from a random Hallmark movie… explains a lot. Well,…

Happy Thanksgiving

Quote of the Day: “There is always something to be grateful for.” Happy Thanksgiving! This year is quite different, but there is still so much to be grateful for. Although today’s Thanksgiving will be smaller and quieter than usual, my family will still be spending all day in the kitchen. My parents home cook all the dishes and it is fabulous. When I’m older, I am definitely hand making everything… even though it seems stressful as hell. On the menu today: turkey, creamed corn, potatoes au gratin, mashed potatoes & gravy, stuffing, cranberry, apple pie, and my contribution, pumpkin cheesecake. I cannot wait to PIG…

Feeling Nostalgic

Quote of the day: “Some days I wish I could go back in life. Not to change anything, but to feel a few things twice.” About two weeks ago, I went back to Eugene, Oregon, home of the University of Oregon, aka my alma mater. Man did it make me feel extremely nostalgic. I swear every time I go back there, I get so emotional. I can’t believe that freaking five years ago, I was moving out of my house for the first time and getting ready to start a new chapter. Seriously, how does time fly so quickly? How was that five years ago? How…

COVID-19 Quarantine Activities

Quote of the Day: “We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are.” Is anyone else about to reach a new level of insanity? This self-quarantine thing is starting to make me go a little stir-crazy and it hasn’t even been one week! I am so used to routine and now it’s just gone! I’ve decided that since life is going to be like this for a while, I might as well make the most of it. I’ve created a list of activities that we can all do while we try and fight this virus as quickly as possible! Don’t forget to stay inside…

Tips for Acing The Interview

Quote of the Day: “Money alone doesn’t motivate me. Having a purpose does.” Finding a job is hard. Interviewing for a job is even harder…in my opinion. If you’re a naturally extroverted human-being, then I’m sure you have no problem with interviews, but if you’re anything like me, then you know how nerve-racking it is every single time you have an interview. To me, an interview feels like an oral presentation, but with just one person. I swear, before each interview, I feel sick to my stomach. I get so nervous and literally cannot focus on anything else. With that being said, I have been interviewing…
