About a month ago Revanche was tweeting about someone who had asked her for career help but didn’t have any plan in place. I jumped in saying that I didn’t think that this was too bad… I mean, lots of people don’t have plans right?
Oh Vanessa, why must you embarrass yourself?
I’ve been home for about a week now and I’ve been reflecting quite a bit on what I’ve learned and how I’ve changed as a person while in Europe.
First of all, if you’re thinking about traveling and can afford to do so, just do it. I can’t even stress how adamant I am about [...]
I cannot wait to be old and retired. There are many reasons for this — including the fact that I’ll get to say whatever the hell I want and no one will care. Example:

I’m back!
