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…

March Favorites

Quote of the Day: “Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.” I can’t believe that March is already over…it went by so fast! I guess with all the change going on, it makes life go by quickly. This pandemic has been going on for about a month now and I just can’t fathom that the new norm is going to the grocery store wearing gloves and mask, waiting in long lines, and being afraid to get close to people. It so weird! Since the month is coming to an end, I thought I would share a few of my favorite things that I’ve loved throughout…

My Work Morning Routine

Quote of the day: “Mindset, habits, and routines are the building blocks for success toward your wellness goals.” I love having a routine. I think it’s so important to have a healthy morning routine, something that works for you and something that makes your day start off really well! I personally really like mornings and prefer to get my sh** done earlier in the day vs. the evening if possible. When I was in college, some mornings I would wake up at 5:30 am and crank out homework or I would go to the gym at 6:00 am. When I started working, I had to create…

My First Week of Work

Quote of the Day: “Work hard in silence. Let success be your noise.” I didn’t post all week last week because I started my new job and just didn’t really have a lot of time! I am officially a working gal. I am working full-time at an accounting firm as a tax processor (don’t ask me what that means because I’m low-key still unsure what I’m actually doing). Today, I thought I would share what my first week of working full-time looked like. My First Week:  First off, the place I work at is in the most PERFECT location. It is on a lagoon and is…

Where Have I Been?

Hey everyone! Boy has it been a while since the last time I posted a blog post. Almost a freaking month. That is totally and completely my fault (obviously). I thought today I would just update you all on my life and tell you what I’ve been up to!   Where Have I Been?  If I’m being completely honest, I’ve just been really busy and really too lazy to write a blog post. I’m in my last term of college (still can’t believe it) and I’m trying to finish off strong as well as just have fun! Here is a bit of what my term…
