Some days, like today, make me think that what I'm living currently just can't actually be my life. I'm not sure what it is about days like these (probably my state of sin or state of grace) that makes me ultra reflective about the life I have lived, super-conscious of the life I am living, … Continue reading Life is but a dream.
Yeah, it's been a while. I'm not even sure what I want to write about now. I just feel like I want to get back into this. 🙂 So, I'll just dive right in with what's on my mind. I'll be the first to say that my blogs haven't exactly been optimistic or exactly encouraging...or … Continue reading It’s been a while.

I was going to be anything from a hairdresser, to a teacher, to a famous country singer. Maybe I would do all of these at once, … Continue reading When I grow up…
If the word internship scares you, you are not alone. Every time I hear it my heart races a little bit, and I am pretty sure my blood pressure rises. Internships probably are not supposed to be this scary. In fact, they are here to help. I have mentioned my accounting teacher before, and that … Continue reading The Next Step: Internships

Something I have not really mentioned is how to get started with your career. Let's take it back to the beginning. Different colleges offer different degrees.

One of my favorite TV commercials is the Trident Layers gum commercial where everyone gets paid in gum...except the guy at the end of the commercial. "No one ever pays me in gum." Awe, poor guy. Of course, we know that would never fly in the real world. Our society depends on making money in … Continue reading Accountants Work for Gum?
In my blog post Dream Big I wrote about my greatest dream which is to open and run a house for young women coming out of troubled times. This business would be operated as program that helps them overcome obstacles and become self-sufficient.
