Encouragement

Here we are again, with another entry meant for the present, but now it is in the past. You forgive me, donʻt you?!

I will admit, one of the biggest resentments that I have about this society that we live in, is the extreme pressure that it puts on college students and recent graduates to find a career and stick with a career.

Procrastination

Procrastination. This word and I have been really good friends for years now. When I decided to write about the wonders of procrastination would you like to take a wild guess as to how many times I attempted to sit down and write this? About four to five separate occasions.

Since the beginning of time I have been an expert at procrastinating. It started in high school when I took the majority of my classes in the International Baccalaureate program (IB) … ok I am back now! I left that…
