Why We Love College (and You Should Too!)


I know that I have put a lot of time and effort into graduating college with a MBA and I know that one day I will get the job that I went to college for.

beers boys and books

At times you can feel stuck, like you’re paying all this money and putting in all this effort and time for a piece of paper. A piece of paper that means what you will be doing for the rest of your life. That can be a little intimidating. Okay, it can be down right scary. Because how do you know that you’re in the right major? How do you know that you’re even at the right school? When we were kids, we believed we could be anything we wanted. An astronaut, a princess, maybe even a singer (not me LOL). But then we graduated high school and landed in college and the reality of life set in and we soon realized we couldn’t be everything we always wanted. Sometimes we have to settle for a variation of that. But this is life, and you never know what’s coming next, and…

The Scientist: How I became a Biology Major


Interesting! I loved learning about science…..

My Simple Living

Image  A few of the Biology books.

When I started my educational endeavor I examined each subject in which I excelled. For some reason beyond me I noticed I did well in the sciences and quite in fact enjoyed the abstract thought involved. Its quite ironic because in High school I never imagined myself as a science major or a college student at the least. During my first year I took all the basic courses that would be involved in any major, but as soon as I took Chemistry I knew that I was in love. Now, I did not pursue Chemistry for several reasons, but specifically for the lack of a solid Chemistry department at my university. My second year came by and I had taken all my basic courses with a heavy emphasis on science courses. Immediately that year I knew that I wanted to search my way into…

Mystery Cookie: Writing Prompt Boot Camp Day 3

One Day you come into work and find a cookie mysteriously placed on your desk. Grateful
to whoever left this anonymous cookie, you eat it. The next morning you come in and find
another cookie. This continues for months until one Day a different object is left—and this
time there’s a note.

“Dear Holley,
I hope that you enjoyed the cookies. All I ask is that you show someone else the same generosity. I’ve heard that you aren’t a kitchen goddess. So here is a list of good deeds that you could do for people. There is also a batch of cookies in jar to make for your kids.
When you’ve done a good deed for someone, let them know that they should pay it forward too. It’s not important that they know who you are. It’s more important that they know someone cares. There aren’t enough good vibes going…

Celebrating Irish Blogs and Bloggers on Saint Patrick’s Day


Interesting information…I have some Irish in my gene’s…..

The WordPress.com Blog

Lá Fhéile Pádraig Shona Duit! And, if you don’t speak Irish, Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! March 17th is a public holiday in Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Montserrat that commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Today, we’re showcasing Irish blogs and bloggers as a way to join in the fun.

No celebration is complete without food

If we’re celebrating, we’ve got to have good food. Foodies will enjoy One Man’s Meat, where Irish blogger Conor Bofin shares his carefully photographed recipes, well-seasoned with humor. We especially enjoyed his recipe for an English classic, toad in the hole, and this amazing hot smoked duck with orange marmalade.
