Back in job market, gracefully accepting reality

desk-laptop-working-technology

I’m back in the job market. It’s been about one week since I stopped working. Nine months after being unemployed from mid-October to November 2014, I find myself back in the same spot.

On the bright side, this allows me to re-evaluate my life and find a new opportunity.

Transition to the real world: Life after college for a young professional

tie-690084_1280Lifestyle trends for recent college graduates in the U.S. are shifting.

Football is Losing Fundamentals

It happens every season: football players fail to wrap up and actually finish a tackle.

Poor tackling in football is similar to today’s world of journalism — specifically digital media — typos are found between the lines of professionally written articles, blogs, and social media posts ALL THE TIME.

A Modern Relationship for a Recent College Grad

Danny and Me

How soon is too early to think about marriage? How do you
approach your 20’s knowing that some girls want kids before they turn 30?

I’ve been with my girlfriend for eight and half months. We’re both just 22 years old and she’s already expressed interest in getting married by age 25 or 26. Her plan is to settle down and have three kids by the time we’re in our early 30’s.
