Yankee Swap – What’s your number?!

Okay, so who participated in a Yankee Swap this Christmas? Don’t know what it is? Get out from under that rock. Google the rules, or ask your friend. If your friend doesn’t know, then you need a new friend. My advice when going into a Yankee Swap is to go in with no expectations. There […]

One is silver, the other is gold.

I never paid attention to people when they would talk about how college was the best time of their lives and how easy everything was. While I was living it, I was highly skeptical of this “best time”, and towards the end, I couldn’t wait to be let loose and get into the “real world”. […]

Snow. I want lots and lots.

We can’t talk about New Hampshire, without talking about winter. And that means snow. I will be the first to tell you, that last winter was kind of a nice break. I wasn’t in the mood to constantly dig out from beneath a foot of snow, but this year it’s a different story. I just […]

If the Apocalypse doesn’t cometh

Christmas is almost here- meaning it’ll be gone before we know it, unfortunately. But then comes New Year’s. PARTAY. I made a promise to myself that I would make realistic resolutions this year- you know, so that maybe I’ll keep them.

“But you live in New Hampshire…”

It was something I heard at job interview after job interview from hesitant employers. And it, more often than not, brought my prospects for the position I had applied for to a screeching halt. What could I say in response? At the time, I was a recent college graduate. I had just graduated from the […]

Don’t forget the 10 year old “You”

As we young professionals continue to grow in our careers and mature as adults, lest we forget our youth that got us here.  Not only the lessons we have learned along the path towards being grownups, or the people that have influenced us, but the juvenile innocence that we have all experienced.  With no responsibilities […]
