Farewell Captain

Major league sports are a funny thing.  Players can only play so long before their bodies start to wear out or they simply become too old to play the game.  When there’s a group of players that play so well together it makes fans so happy.  But when they slowly start to retire, one by one, it breaks fans hearts.

The New York Yankees had a group of players called the Core Four.  The Core Four included Jorge Posada, Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, and Derek Jeter.  They were all in the minor leagues together and brought up by the Yankees so their entire careers were in New York… except when Pettitte went to Texas for a few years.  Every Yankees fan loved them and all the other teams feared them but also respected them.

Ways to Stay Busy Post-College

ToDoListI don’t know about you, but when I was in college, I kept myself very busy.  Sometimes, I got stressed out because of everything that was on my plate, but I liked always having something to do.  Downtime is nice, but you cherish it more the less you have.

When you’re in college, there is always so much going on.  I had a job and an internship while I was a full time student.  My job and internship took up over 40 hours and I was in class another 15 hours PLUS studying.  And on top of all that, I tried to have a social life.  I was part of a business organization that took up some of my time, although not as much once I got so busy.  Other people may have been part of Greek life or played a sport.  There’s so many opportunities to keep yourself busy in college.

However, once you graduate the opportunities to stay busy begin to dwindle.

Starting a new job can be exciting.  New tasks, new office, new coworkers – its a change that people are usually happy about.  After the new job feeling starts to wear off, your mindset may start to change.

At most jobs, employees accrue time off.  So for every hour, day, week, or even pay period they work, they earn some paid time off.  But the question is, when can you really start taking time off? Continue reading

Pretty Little Liars – the show that never ends

PLL AGot a secret, can you keep it?  I love Pretty Little Liars.  Its one of those shows that get you instantly hooked.  I’ve been watching since the first episode, and I just can’t stop.  Many of my friends used to watch it but stopped and only a handful of them still watch.  Pretty Little Liars is literally the show that never ends.

Last week was the summer premier.  The 4 liars just found their thought to be dead friend – Ali.  Ezra got shot by A and he’s the only one who knows who A is. We were left not knowing if he was going to live and whether or not the liars would have to continue the journey to find A.
