To Whom It May Concern, I did not really know how to address this letter considering I was given absolutely no indication of who would be reading these applications at your company. All the websites I've looked at tell me to find the name of the person who hires people, but if you didn't provide … Continue reading An Honest Cover Letter

Everything is still too fresh to definitively determine whether or not it was the biggest mistake of my life, but now is the time to crack down, … Continue reading Moving Out.
**WARNING: The following post is extremely petty.** Here is a list of things that annoy me: When people say "Okiedokie artichokie" un-ironically.

But here's part one.] Welcome, family and friends who are reading this as well random strangers who just happened to stumble upon this blog. For those of you who don't know, I spent a … Continue reading I can’t come up with a clever name for this Iceland travel blog. (Part One).
[NOTE: I wrote this post before leaving for Iceland. I will state here that I am currently in Iceland and the jitters I talk about in the following have now left the building.
