The Perils of Job Searching

Image
Okay so everyone knows that job hunting is an annoying but necessary process. However I feel like over the past couple weeks it has hit a fever pitch. It is not that jobs are not out there, they are. Its just that the means of getting to that job can be the most arduous processes you have ever come by. Lets talk about how you are asked to upload your resume/cv on one page and then on the very next page they want you to type in your entire resume again. What the hell kind of sense does that make? I am also shocked at the lack of professionalism that some companies have as well. One company emailed me that they were interested in interviewing. Then about a couple hours later replied to my email saying, "never mind your not a good fit for us". I'm not kidding this was an actually (grammatically incorrect) email that was sent to me.


I can't lie, not only this process annoying but it can be very spirit crushing too. We all need job to make a living and provide for oursel…

International Day of the Girl

Image
October 11th is the international day of the girl and it has been that was since 2012 thanks to the United Nations. They describe it as "the day to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while promoting girls' empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights." (United Nations)

This had me thinking about what I am doing, as a women to aid in this. I am extremely fortunate to live in the circumstances that I am. There are girls all over the world and even in my home country (the United States) that fall victim to crimes against women. I am going to be honest I had no idea that this day even existed but I am glad I learned about it today. It can be hard to figure our how you want to do your part,  and it was no different for me. I took to the internet to find some organizations that focus on the development, empowerment, and support of women and young girls. I created a list of three organizations that I like and I donated what I could to help their …

Comic Con NYC 2017

Image
This Friday was my first time at "the con" and I had a blast. This is the time of year where Comic book, movie, and video game enthusiasts convene at the Javits Center in NYC. I was never too interested in going to Comic Con before I met my boyfriend but he loves comic books and everything Comic con so it was my girlfriend duty to accompany him.  We decided to cosplay at the Redhood a DC comic anti-hero. It was so much fun getting our components for our costumes and dressing up. I had no idea that getting your costumes right and accurate to the character was so important but I learned very quickly.  If I am being completely honest, I really did not expect to have as much fun as I did. I am really glad I went because it really was a lot of fun. Seeing everyone in cool cosplay and taking in all the excitement was a real treat. With all that being said going to your first con can be really overwhelming. I have compiled some tips that you may find useful if you will be going to N…

As mentioned in a previous post I am obsessed with jewelry. It has been something that I become really passionate about. From collecting to making my own pieces, it has really becoming my newest hobby.I have always been on the crafty side and one day while walking around in the city (New York City), I stumbled upon a magical place (a.k.a the bead store)! I went inside a was mesmerized by all the strands of beads and cabochons and findings. That's when it hit me; I can make my own accessories. since then I have been hooked and my hobby has morphed into a full on obsession!

Right now I have been focused on making bracelets and earrings, since these are my favorite pieces to wear daily. I plan to expand to necklaces soon though. I love working will all different kinds of beads natural and man-made. I am constantly looking for new beads and new techniques I can try. Below are some post from my Instagram page that I made to display some of the pieces that I have made. Maybe some time …

Passport Progress

Confession time:

I'm 24, and I have never been out the country.
There I said it. It seems that whenever I tell people that I have never been out of the country they are always so shocked. My boyfriend has also been campaigning for me to get my passport for some time now. Well as of this week I have filled out my application and got my pictures taken. All there is left to do is pay for it and what for it to arrive. This got me thinking of all the places I could go and where would I even want to go. I mean as some one who has never been out of the U.S., I always said I want to go here or there. But, now for the first time in my life I will actually be able to. This brings me to...

Fall Festivities

Image
Fall has finally arrived and I could not be happier. Fall has always been my favorite season and not because of the pumpkin overload we get during this time. But because of all the fun things you can do during this time.  I don't know about you, but I just look better and get out more when Fall rolls around. One of my favorite things to do at the start of the season is to go apple picking. my beau kicked off the season right by getting some apples and spending time on the farm.

One of the best things about living in New Jersey (and yes there are some good things) is that you have a bunch of farms to choose from. Not only was there apple and pumpkin picking but there was kettle corn and farm raised roasted corn that was so buttery and delicious.

So what are your favorite fall activities? Let me know!


Unlikely Match

I have been with my boyfriend for a little over two years now and we met in a very millennial way: online. Whenever I tell people that I met my boyfriend on tinder the response is always the same; REALLY ON TINDER? Butit is absolutely possible to meet normal and wonderful people on the app, its just not always easy. Everyone thinks of Tinder as just a hook up app, but in my experience I have met friends and met the love of my life. If you go into it with the right frame of mind it can be a fun experience. Which brings me to my tips of making a positive Tinder experience:
1. Have fun with it  When I first logged onto tinder it was just to have fun. My main goal of tinder was to just, be on tinder and see what it was like. All my friends would show me all these funny conversations that they had, and I thought it would be fun to have my own stories to share. Keep an open mind and don't take yourself to seriously and you can have  pretty fun time.  may
2. Identify the creeps So it is t…
