If you're a 20-something like me and graduation is on the horizon, you may feel a bit uneasy as you scramble through the closet trying to find what to wear to that job interview. Making the transition as an upperclassman college student to a solid career wardrobe is no...

The 'honeymoon stage' are the first initial thoughts of living in another country traveling: interesting food, places, and thrills... Then the challenging factors start weighing in: speaking a foreign language, budgeting, leaving your boyfriend for 5 months etc... and...

Moving to a different country for 5 months is not the easiest transition, but having a space to come home to after a long day makes a tremendous difference. I made my home away from home for only 13£ (that's about $18).

As many college students do, I took on the responsibility to pay (or, in this case, get paid ) for a large sum of my college tuition. I'm thankful and blessed to have a set of wonderful parents that set aside money each month for my future college education. College co...

High school's over and college is here. I'm about to state it bluntly. Time to grow up, take responsibility for your schedule, buy a planner (I have a post about that by the way),  and start going the extra mile... in everything. These next few years determine y...
