Dreams do not work unless you do

You know that moment when your surfing through Pinterest, and you stumble upon a quote that describes your current situation perfectly? That’s exactly how I feel with the  quote “Dreams Don’t Work Unless You Do!” I’ve always had the dream of being a Journalist. I went to school and received my bachelors in Journalism but…

Beat the “Sunday Scaries”

Lately, I’ve noticed my Sunday nights being extremely predictable. The Sunday scaries usually kick in at around 7pm-ish and I repeat to my partner “I don’t wanna go to work tomorrow, I don’t wanna go to work tomorrow” about a million times. Am I alone here? That sad feeling of having to go to work…

Never Growing Up

Internally that is.  I never want to grow up; I never want to lose my young spirit. When I was little, I thought I was a little weirdo. I’d see purple or orange beams whenever I closed my eyes, and believed I was the only one with such magical powers. Of course, I now  know…

Tuesday Tips: Preparing for an Interview

Now that I am getting closer to graduating, I have had the privilege of going on a few interviews for internships and jobs pertaining to my career goals. Interviews can be very nerve-wracking, and if we let the nerves take over, we can potentially wreck the interview and with that our chances of landing the dream…
