Read/Watch/Listen: May 2019

Y’all. I survived the spring. It’s officially summer vacation 😎 (Of course, “summer vacation” to me means working one job instead of two, but still.) I’m also officially 31, which for some reason feels a lot older than 30. Case in point: when I go to a show now, my ears ring for 2-3 days… Continue reading Read/Watch/Listen: May 2019

Read/Watch/Listen: April 2019

January–April 2019 felt a lot like treading water. Between planning the PRSA Charlotte Symposium, teaching at UNC Charlotte, preparing for my APR Panel Presentation, volunteering with the Charlotte Speech and Hearing Center, showing up for my husband at his Isles Meet-ups and meeting client expectations at my day job, my life has been full and… Continue reading Read/Watch/Listen: April 2019

The best things I read/watched/listened to: February 2018

I have a love/hate relationship with Goodreads. It helps me find and save books I want to read, but the reviews are always so negative! For example, Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close has terrible reviews, but I’m so glad that I went ahead and read it anyway, because it quickly became one of… Continue reading The best things I read/watched/listened to: February 2018

I detailed my strategies and how it’s going so far in this article I… Continue reading The best things I read/watched/listened to: January 2018

The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck

When I first heard about The life-changing magic of not giving a f*ck by Sarah Knight, I thought it was simply a spoof of The life-changing magic of tidying up by Marie Kondo, which, for the record, I read and loved and have positively altered my relationship with “stuff” because of it. However, I was pleasantly surprised… Continue reading The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck

3 ways to save money with a library card

I recently signed up for a Charlotte library card, and it was the first thing I did that said, “I’m staying here for awhile.” The only other library card I’ve had is from back home in Delmar. I never had one while living in Cortland, Connecticut, or Troy. It seems small (after all, it’s free),… Continue reading 3 ways to save money with a library card

Rich Bitch

I didn’t have a savings account until I was 24. Throughout high school and college I always had at least one job, but that money went to funding my social life: clothes, going out with friends, food, etc. Even during my first year of work after grad school I never had use for a savings… Continue reading Rich Bitch
