For those of you that don’t know, the state of Maryland is known for its seafood – especially their crabs. But if you’re someone that generally likes seafood, Baltimore crabs are definitely something you should try.
But crabs aren’t the only seafood in Baltimore. A new restaurant called Mussel Bar and Grille recently opened in Harbor East. Now, I don’t generally like seafood, but figured they’d have good mussels solely because of its name. Luckily, the mussels were better than I expected and I have recommended the Mussel bar to many of my friends. I have gone back so many times. Let me tell you about some of the reasons why my experiences have always been so great: Continue reading
A few years back, MTV aired a show called 16 and Pregnant in an effort to prevent teen pregnancy. Each week, a different girl was featured, and we were invited to watch her journey through teen pregnancy, giving birth, and then a week or 2 after her child was born.
After the show got high reviews, MTV made a spinoff called Teen Mom. This show featured 4 teens from 16 and Pregnant. Each week we saw each of the teens struggle as a teen mother. Continue reading
Its nice to be able to go to the beach and spend some time outside for a few weekends over the summer. Living in Baltimore, its fairly easy to get to the east coast beaches. Ocean City and Rehoboth (in Delaware) are two popular beaches to visit for the weekends. Some people also travel north to one of the beaches on the Jersey shore.
But all beaches are not the same.
Ocean City, MD
There are a variety things people can do at the beach, and each beach is better for different things. Continue reading

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.
I 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
