Words for Wednesday

Back to a crazy week, but these quotes were a refreshing start to my day. The last one quote by Albert Einstein is the absolute best. Enjoy!

Perks of Being a Wallflower

One of my favorite books is The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. The book documents a teenage boys [who goes by name of Charlie] through various letters he writes to an anonymous person. Charlie’s letters discuss teenage issues, such as sexuality, drug use, fitting in and standard high school awkwardness and confusion. The Perks of Being a Wallflower also explains meanings behind certain books, music and films that relate to Charlie’s life. Some of my other favorite books are mentioned in The Perks of Being a Wildflower, including  To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott […]

King of Anything

Keep drinking coffee, stare me down across the table, while I look outside. So many things I’d say if only I were able, but I just keep quiet and count the cars that pass by. You’ve got opinions, man. We’re all entitled to ‘em, but I never asked so let me thank you for your time, and try not to waste anymore of mine. And get out of here fast. I hate to break it to you babe, but I’m not drowning There’s no one here to save Who cares if you disagree? You are not me Who made you king of anything? So you dare tell me who […]

Words for Wednesday

I really enjoy comparing quotes and song lyrics to my life and when I feel they fit a specific person or situation, I try to share. I was procrastinating on writing a History paper last night and instead looking up quotes/lyrics images from various Tumblr sites. Images have always been incorporated into this blog, but one goal for me is to post more quotes and lyrics that inspire and motivate me that are took good to pass up. In attempt to add a little structure, organization, inspiration and a stronger feel-good atmosphere on this blog, I’m going to begin “Words for Wednesday” and post 5-10 […]

How-to: The Cover Letter

I love to bounce ideas off of my friends-both in the personal and in the professional realm. When Aimee was chatting w/ me about writing a cover letter, Jamie suggested the idea that I write a “how to write an effective cover letter” blog post. I am in no way, shape or form an “expert” but I have written my fair share of cover letters for different positions, jobs and internships and decided to take Jamie’s suggestion. Annnd here it goes: The purpose of a cover letter to to explain WHY you are submitting a resume and is an introduction tool between you and the employer, […]

FWD: What isn’t on the resume

I actually wrote this blog post last summer on another blog and was re-reading it today and liked it! I agree with everything I posted originally, and realize just how important these skills/traits are now as I’m a year older. I added pictures I like for a little visual effect [the post is long, but good, I promise!] Enjoy queens! July 21, 2009: I honestly feel like I have to redo, update, change, check or do SOMETHING to my resume all the time. I’ll see someone else’s, or another design and decide to format mine differently. I’ll think of a new verb to describe perfectly […]
