Take a #selfie like a pro
Being unemployed sucks. Waiting for companies to make decisions after your kick a** interview sucks, too. At least I’m learning patience. While I definitely keep myself busy with job searching, blogging, researching, working out, and (my least favorite) adulting... I seriously miss working. So, I’ve started opening my job search up to temporary work. Light bulb: Become … Continue reading Take a #selfie like a pro
Have you ever walked into a public place – a restaurant, a store, a bar – and instantly felt at home? As if everything from the décor to the patrons was exactly where you belong? That’s how I felt walking into FOUND Austin, a posh boutique, nestled on the corner of 5th & Oakland in … Continue reading FOUND Austin
Last Tuesday Night.
I sat along the back wall of a pub as the band hit the final note of their first set. Applause. It was a Tuesday night, so it wasn't exactly a full house but the bar was at least full nearest the stage, leading me to choose kind of an awkward seat.

Time to get back into classes... Dance is for me, what crack is to a crack addict: … Continue reading Just Dance

I wrote my Senior Communication Thesis on how Lord Voldemort represents societal fears in the 21st Century, and the essay below was for an English elective. Our prompt was to … Continue reading I miss college…
Meet Elizabeth Lestina
Disclaimer: I may be a bit biased with this one. 😉 I've known Elizabeth since our freshman year of high school. She's actually the reason I chose to move to Austin, over a few other hipster cities. So yeah...she's my best friend. I would say that she's also one of my clients, but our professional relationship is … Continue reading Meet Elizabeth Lestina
It’s kind of an interesting story…
I studied French for 9 years, from middle school through college. I'd considered studying abroad but I was too scared and I let the additional prices and fees be my excuse for staying stateside. By my senior year of college, I'd pretty much accepted that it wasn't likely I'd ever go abroad. Then, my mom … Continue reading It’s kind of an interesting story…
