Nine to Five

I had a throwback moment this morning when YouTube started playing All American Rejects' "Gives You Hell" on my phone. I remembered when I first heard this song, freshman year of college, it demonized a stable 9-5 job and glorified the rebel rock life. It's been 10 years since the release of that song and...

Why You Should Travel

I love to travel. I know, that's been said and done a trillion times but I want to address something that's been trending in our culture.

Because technically all food is ethnic. She looked at me confused (and as if I'm wrong)... Continue Reading →

Safety as a Right, Not a Privilege

True Freedom

I was let go from my job yesterday. That's a nice way of saying I was fired. And you know what, I feel pretty good. If you've been following me since the beginning of this blog, you'll know that there's been a lot of adventures searching for the right career. From being unemployed, to retail,...
