…Until Tomorrow

Dear Reader, When faced with a large task do you have a tendency to get everything done now or wait until the last minute? Although your tendency towards action or procrastination may depend on the specific situation, most of us have a natural inclination towards one or the other. I prefer to start things early, […]

Will You Stand Out?

Dear Reader, When was the last time that you had an interview for work or school? I’m applying for graduate schools now and just completed a preliminary interview today. The process of applying to work or a school can be both exciting and incredibly stressful. When applying for an opportunity, you are essentially committing your […]

I can a little German

Dear Reader, Sprichts du Deustch? Well, me neither, at least not yet anyway. Usually, I would answer the “can you speak German” question with “ich kann ein bisschen…” (I can a little). I am on a German-learning journey right now. I love learning languages and although I am not fluent in any foreign language, I’m […]

Cold Dark Places
