What’s Next?

On a Saturday morning during the spring season, one likes to sleep in, roll out of bed, and possibly spend the morning in their sweats drinking coffee and reading a good magazine or book.  Maybe you like to rise early and go for a run or hop in the car with your hungover friends and […]

Running on Empty

Get up off the couch…and go straight to the cookie jar. An unreasonable request from my conscious is telling me to put on my running shoes and go outside for a long journey around the neighborhood, however, my immediate urge is to eat the cookie and sit back down on the couch.  As soon as […]

Job Huntress

Find a firm, form a cover letter, fix your resume, mail the package. Rinse and repeat. Ten months after graduating from law school and six months after passing the bar exam, I am still scouring for a job. The struggle and toil of cold calling and attempting to find a job board that has new […]

Glitter and Dating

“You have glitter on your face,” I said. “That doesn’t mean I was at the strip club today,” he answered with a smirk. “Excuse me?” I replied with eyebrows raised. Laughter and a full blown smile then reached his lips, and I knew he was joking.  It took me a few seconds, but I got […]

Wedding Limbo

Do you ever feel like every time you sign on to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram that someone has announced their engagement?  Or perhaps, you are “that person” who pins the photos of the bridal hair styles, bridesmaids dresses, or centerpiece ideas on your Pinterest board entitled “The Future Mrs.” or “Someday”.  And don’t think that […]

Roommates, aka Mum and Dad

“Goodnight Roomies!” I yell as I walk my way up the stairs into my old bedroom for a night of rest and relaxation. “Night roomie,” my dad says from his old dusty chair in the living room. His 26-year-old youngest daughter, his pride and joy, star soccer player in college and law school graduate has […]
