So…uh…ideas?

If anyone can’t tell, I’m having a hard time not falling off the blogging wagon this time. This is an irritating thing to me, because I don’t want to fall off, but I don’t know what to write about…

So…any ideas? I’ll really take anything. I would like to keep up the one post a week on Sundays thing, because it was nice to have that routine to stick to.

I do have a few updates to go over (mostly my week of cross country travel and back again), but I’ll have to do that at a different time when I have more time. I’ll start that now and then work on it. We can plan on that being next week?

So, I’ll think, you think, we will all think about what I should write about. Make it fun, let me know, and we will make it work.

Ok? Ok. Solid.

Stories of the Job Hunt: The End

I got on Facebook yesterday, and the first thing that popped up was a memory. Two years ago yesterday, December 17, 2014, I finished my last final and finished college.

I finished college…and started my job search. It was a long, arduous process. But I’ve already said enough about that, to be completely honest.  Continue reading

First things first I’m the Realest

[Iggy Azelea, Thank you. I’ll take it from here.]

It’s been quite the couple weeks since I last opened my keyboard to the masses.  Ha! Jokes.  I know that there aren’t many who read my blog.  But those who do, we have some things to talk about.

First of all, holding down two jobs is tough.  Second of all, I’m quickly becoming aware that no one treats those in retail very kindly.  It’s not nice.  It’s not fun.  That is all.

So, it’s been a month since I’ve last blogged.  Let’s see if anything happened…..nope.

Well. Maybe a couple things. (A lot of them may be racing related. Sorry not sorry.)

My Life as an Intern: Week 6

I had this idea this week that I should be blogging about my Adventures in Intern-ship.

So I will.

But the thing is, I had this great idea, and nothing really exciting has happened to me.

I sat at my desk and did stuff.

It’s kinda funny.  Everyone has this vision that interns are just errand people.  Maybe in some cases that is true.  The intern is supposed to stuff envelopes and get coffee and do all things awful that no one else wants to do.

I want to know where this stereotype comes from.

I’ve had to do none of that.  The closest thing to the cliche I’ve had to do is take notes at a meeting.  But I was given the option to do so.

I have become the master at commuting.  I am still awful at picking the fastest lane of traffic though.  Oh well, still lots of time to figure that out.

Honestly guys, it hasn’t been that bad.

I mean, I do get bored, but everyone else would while sitting at a desk for 8 hours.  Sitting at a desk is also EXHAUSTING.  I had no idea!!

One thing I love about the office I work in is the atmosphere.  All the guys work hard, but they also spend a lot of time making fun of each other, and talking about stuff.  The other day, we had a 45 minute discussion about what kind of music we listen to.

I’ve also learned quite a bit.  Mainly that the Google people are geniuses and that it is possible to track almost everything when you visit a website.  I’ve also learned how to use WordPress a little bit.  So that’s been cool.  I also like that my opinion matters.  If I have an idea on how something could be done better, all I have to do is speak up.  If I have an idea about something we should be doing, all I have to do is say what it is.  That is cool.

I was going to keep going about the crazy things that happened to me this week, but I don’t think I will.  I’ll leave this with just what I did at my big girl job this week.  I didn’t do much, just helped out to the best of my ability.

And that’s what interns are supposed to do.

Sigh.

It’s been one of those days.  You know the ones, where nothing really seems to go right?

I woke up late.

That made me late to class.

I really need to do my laundry so I didn’t really have any clothes.

My sock fell halfway off my foot. I was wearing hi-tops so I couldn’t just take my shoe off and fix it.

I got to my second class. Everything was going just fine, until we had to start working on our group project. Continue reading

Good joke, dad.

This morning, I received this email (well, forward I suppose) from my father.

Now, a couple things are awesome about this:

1. My dad was invited to this. Um. AWESOME.

2. My father has recognized my love of F1. 

3. This opportunity just sounds downright awesome. (Except, if I’m being honest, the dinner with Lewis.  I guess the Mercedes drivers just aren’t my favorite.  But I don’t want to go to a group dinner with Lewis Hamilton.  Sorry Lewis.)

Awesome.  The only word I can come up with.

However, let’s be real here.  This whole package costs $15,000.  For two people.  For three days.  So, for all you playing along at home with your calculators, that is $2500 per person per day.

This whole thing is beyond awesome.  I won’t be going but it is so so so cool.  I don’t have words to express it.

Now, does anyone have a couple thousand dollars laying around that they aren’t using?

UPDATE: I’ve decided that I actually like the Mercedes boys. I know it seems fickle, but they’re pretty great. And besides, when there are only 11 teams and 22 drivers, is there really room to not like someone? Does that make sense?
