Am I the only one that has been who has been seeing bullet journals everywhere? Or do I just surround myself with people who love organization and writing down their feelings? It’s new to me, but it’s been around for a few years developed by Ryder Carroll.

Here’s my rundown on how to start a bullet journal and some things to keep in mind so it’s not so overwhelming.

Why You Should Hire Someone Inexperienced

Jobs

I have a lot of feelings on this subject, mostly because I’ve been looking for a job for the past six months as you can see in the image above. Sadly, that’s not all the jobs I applied to if you count the applicants directly on company websites or outside of these job search sites.

However, even when I did have a job I had to settle for a two different cafe jobs because even with a college degree (a $50k piece of paper at this point!) I still couldn’t get a “real job”. The expectations for entry-level jobs are insane, so insane that there are memes surrounding the subject. It’s a known struggle for people in this generation that, unless you had the luxury of great internships and unpaid opportunities (yes more than one) or knew somebody that knew somebody, you probably won’t have a good job after graduation – and that’s sad. Here’s a few reasons why you recruiters and hiring managers should take inexperienced applicants a little more seriously. Continue reading “Why You Should Hire Someone Inexperienced”

Tips For Driving Cross-Country

Utah Road
This is my second cross country road trip in the last six months, so I’ve learned a few things along the way. Here are some tips you need to know if you’re taking a 4-5 Day cross country road trip. I’ve driving both the Northern and Southern route at this point. I think I prefer the northern route to be honest, it felt a lot more relaxed. I went East Coast to West Coast both times, but all tips are just as applicable the other way around.

Fall Wedding Guest Glowing

I’ve been looking at dresses and what kind of makeup I want to do for my boyfriend’s brother’s wedding for longer than I’d like to admit. This is mostly because I never get to go to fancy things and I want to feel confident in what I’m wearing. I’ve come across so many nice things to wear so I wanted to share, hopefully this helps if you’re someone like me (an over-thinker). Here’s some of my favorites, on a budget.

A Week in the Life of a Puppy Sitter

EmmyPup

One of my friends got a pitbull/lab mix puppy named Emmy last weekend and I fell in love with pibbles all over again. I have two adult pitbulls and babysitting a puppy for a week taught me a lot about the experience of raising a puppy, as well as the tendencies of my own dogs.

This by no means is a post complaining about taking care of a puppy. It’s just a few things I’ve experienced during the week and learned about the way I react to a situation like this.

Nexplanon One Month Review

PSA: Planned Parenthood is 100% necessary and I am grateful for the people that dedicate their lives to fighting for it, and for everyone who works at every location around the country. Here’s how to get involved if you feel the same or want to learn more.

Alarm goes off, roll out of bed, make some coffee, look in the mirror and realize you’ve got a lot to do. First things first, where’s my birth control? You’re two pills behind… again.
