Taking a Leap of Faith

I've recently undergone a lot of changes in my life, starting with this past November when I turned 25.

Job Hunting While on the Job

Being in your young twenties can be extremely confusing career wise. There is this constant nagging thought that maybe you shouldn't be in the job you're in, or maybe the 9-5 lifestyle really is a wasteland for youth. Maybe you should move west, become a yoga instructor, spend all your money on traveling... Being at… Continue reading Job Hunting While on the Job
