I tend to panic when I don’t need to. I do this really cute thing where I insist on being at my bus stop at least 30-45 minutes early. That usually puts me close enough to the front to ensure I get a window seat for the 8-hour trip back to my parent’s house. Of course,...

Intro:

The New Year had me thinking a lot about goals, values, ambitions, motivations, life, and how excited I was to wear my new fuzzy socks. With all the talk of “look how far you’ve come in a year” and “can you believe that was only 1 year ago” I found myself even mo...

At 3:30 pm yesterday, I walked over to my colleague’s desk. We sat there, absentmindedly chatting about work, life, and Halloween candy – the things 20-somethings should be chatting about at work.
