Being unemployed and living at home, things can sometimes get a little monotonous. A typical routine looks something like breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, and post-lunch snack all interspersed with things like gazing longingly out the window, dodging disapproving looks from your parents, and watching reality television on Bravo. Oh, and applying to jobs. Right. To … Continue reading

Meal in a Box

Last week was one of those weeks. Everything seemed to be happening at once and the last thing I wanted to do when I got home from work was cook. Thankfully, I had this in the back of my cupboard.

Soundchecks and Sushi

It was a crazy and chaotic week but I survived SXSW!

After being home for months and not venturing out into the world, taking a trip can be a bit intimidating but well worth the effort. Visit that … Continue reading

Not having a job means not having money to spend. Not having money to spend means not going out with my friends. And not going out with my friends means that there is a lot of time spent watching cat videos online. When I was first unemployed and unaware at how difficult it would be … Continue reading

I can remember getting AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) just like it was yesterday. I wasn’t allowed to have it at first because my parents were worried I’d abuse it (little did they know six years later I’d be selling my soul to Mark Zuckerberg and spending hours upon hours stalking my crush on a little … Continue reading

Livin’ the (Unemployed) Dream

Sometimes you find yourself at home alone on a Saturday night, in your living room watching Disney’s Tangled, and crying your little eyes out because you’re just so happy when (SPOILER ALERT) Rapunzel finally sees the lanterns she’s wanted to see her whole life, but hasn’t been able to because an evil woman locked her … Continue reading
