Side Street// Rules for Post Graduation #2

There are certain things that you should never be skimp on money-wise Such as medical care, shelving units, or your haircut. Add umbrellas to that list. When it’s pouring rain and the wind is trying to rip your clothes off, you’ll be hating yourself for buying that umbrella for $2 from a cart in Chinatown. [...]

Yeah. You don’t even [...]

Ok. 16 days late… my job owns me… I couldn’t have been happier to boot 2010 out the door and welcome 2011 with a cold drink and a great time. It’s amazing how a new year and this psychological “clean slate” can rejuvenate a person. I feel invigorated and confident. I can only hope that [...]
