The Five People You Need in Your Life

As our lives move forward we tend to change as people, we move to different states, and take different paths in life. While everything is changing there are certain people in our lives who remain the same. The friends, colleagues, and mentors may change with the times, but you should always surround yourself with people…

My Year in Review

It has been exactly one year since graduation. 365 days since saying goodbye to college and hello to the working world. Well, it has not really gone as planned. Here are the numbers: 5 jobs. 2 relationships. 4 months of unemployment. 3 mental breakdowns. 14 pounds lost. 1 new country. 2 loans paid off. 12…

A Gamma Phi Throwback

I was looking through my computer the other day and stumbled upon the testimonial I wrote for formal recruitment. Before you judge me or put me into a category, know that I accept your judgment, but joining Gamma Phi is still one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Here it is: Before I did…

Bands To Look Out For: grandson

If you haven’t heard of grandson, you are missing out on 2018 rock royalty. Perhaps the most powerful thing about this L.A. transplant is his lyrics. Unafraid of “going there”, grandson, otherwise known as Jordan Benjamin, pokes the bear with his taunts, criticisms, and commentary on our nation’s current events. With tracks like “Thoughts &…

A List of My Current Addictions

Music is just like ice cream; there are a plethora of options, different types, toppings and combinations, but you will never fancy every flavor. Music is the same way. A slew of different genres, styles and remixes, but I’ve never met a person who likes them all. For me, music is about a feeling–it can…

He Asked for a Blog, so Here it is.

I have a tendency to be an over-sharer, so when I went through my last “break-up” I took to this blog. My most recent guy liked my writing and read I think I’m going through my first break-up. He asked me “when do I get a blog”? Well Mike, here is your blog. Five days after I…

When is the Right Time to D.T.R (define the relationship)?

It seems like defining the relationship is a thing of the past. Everyone I’ve spoken to has raised an eyebrow and said “that isn’t a thing” when I’ve asked about DTR-ing. Here is a little background on my situation: I met this guy two months ago. We started off just seeing one another once a…

I Spent A Month in the Real World And Here’s What Happened

I am happy to announce that I have a full-time job complete with benefits, paid time off and free coffee! Getting a job has lifted a tremendous weight off of my shoulders. I no longer have to use crumpled up dollar bills at Starbucks, I can afford to order something besides water when I go…

Success? Success!

I recently saw a picture while at work that said, “don’t let someone else’s definition of success determine your own”. Such a simple statement, one that I’m sure I’ve heard many times before, but for some reason this time it stood out to me. In my eyes, success and happiness won’t always sit at the same…

I Think I’m Going Through My First Break-Up

I’ve never had a boyfriend, or anything remotely close to a boyfriend. I’ve been single my whole life and I’ve always liked it that way. Until recently, when I was introduced to a stand-up guy; he had a great job, found my lame stories interesting, was courteous, and most importantly, he liked me for who…

The Secret Life of Post-Grad

If there is one thing you don’t learn in school it’s how to be unsuccessful. Starting as early as high-school, we are taught that success is paramount and there are certain things we need to do in order to achieve it. A couple of these things include but are not limited to: going to college,…

I’m Becoming A Vegan

Being a vegan is not hard. I’m serious, I’ve talked to my friends who are and they said it themselves, “it’s not even that hard.” Cutting out animals and their products just is not that difficult in this day and age. Anyone can do it, you just have to be motivated and stick to it!…
