After that long chapter on how I should be getting to bed earlier, I stayed up until 1:30am last night. The best part? I left my phone on vibrate, so I slept through my alarm this morning (set for 6:15am). Luckily, my body is used to waking up a... Read more

Well my friends, I believe my work experience will be wholly different from this day forward. We had to pack up our stuff from our office (I share an office with 2 other studentsÖ very crowded and no privacy) and move to a temporary location dur... Read more
Relationship Advice Needed...

Itís so bright in my office, and Iím facing the windowÖ and the sun is in my face. I can barely see my computer screen. I can hear my eyeballs sizzling. Ahhhh, I wish I was at the beach and not at the office. Oh well, itís moneyÖ

Finally, itís Friday. I always feel as though itís a shame to spend 5 days of the week wishing it was the weekend, but I do it anyways. I think if I had a job that I felt was personal to me, I wouldnít feel as though itís just an obligation, or ... Read more

Today is a new day, and I vow to make it successful. Iím trying to get back onto the healthy wagon, but itís not easy. Sure, Iíve re-learned how to buy healthy foods, like fruit and vegetables, and Iíve been staying away from rice, pasta and pot... Read more
