I am officially moved in! And finished my first week of work! This was a tough two weeks but it was a successful move and I am very happy where I am. To be honest, I wouldn’t have been able to do this if it wasn’t for my friends and family.
At first the move was a little stressful and I may have been a little sensitive but thankfully my parents were very patient and really helped me. It definitely was not easy but it would have been 100 times worse if they weren’t here. It was comforting. My sister actually just left today and her visit was great. I was able to go out, hang out with old friends, meet new ones and put some personal touches to my apartment. She was a HUGE help.
Unfortunately, I was sleeping on an air bed up until yesterday but now I have all my furniture! I swear I am a real carpenter. I put together a couch, chaise, slipper chair, coffee table, tv stand, ladder shelf, desk and bed. Proud of me. It was hard though. No wonder guys normally take that department.
Anyway, I absolutely love my job! I feel like it has meaning now, which is exactly what I was looking for. I am still trying to learn everything but so far so good. Only time will tell but I foresee a great future ahead of me and I can’t wait. I just need to make sure I give it my all every day and take as much from this experience as possible.
You know how in the movies people have these trendy, cute apartments that look almost effortless? Well not only is that mucho expensive and hard to find but the movies are leaving a few things out, as usual.
So now that I quit my old job, accepted my new job and am moving to Harrisburg all in one week, that whole process you missed in the movies is happening in fast forward.
I went apartment shopping with my best friend and former roommate yesterday and woah it was not easy. I made an entire game plan of places to see but things always don’t work out the way you want. The pros and cons were endless and almost scary. There are so many things you have to think about. Commuting to work, grocery shopping, where can I park, can I breathe in this apt, can I trust the people living around me, can I afford this? Those are not even half the questions I had to answer each 15 minute walk-through. If you didn’t think I was anal and pushy before, it was in full force yesterday.
THANKFULLY I finally found the perfect place, now I am just waiting to get approved. God please let me get approved!!!! I can just picture my whole life in that apartment. I have been shopping for furniture with my mom and my trendy, cute apartment is at my fingertips…. Once I find out if the apartment is mine or not. Sooo frustrating. I can’t order my cute blue trendy couch and my taupe chaise lounge until I find out if I have an address to send it to. #gettingimpatient
Oh another thing- moving out on your own is SOOO EXPENSIVE. After buying my precious 98 Volkswagen Cabrio I was already out some money and now I have to think about security deposit, rent, bills and household items. #woof
Time will tell but I’ll keep you posted. Word of advice: when someone says to prepare for your future, actually LISTEN. Cause they are not kidding.
How do you know if you are making the right "move?"
Do you know that one decision can change the direction your career path will take? I feel like people just kind of shrug it off and say “you’ll have so many opportunities” or “something great will come along.” But how do you know when it is that something great? Do you make the jump?
Ever since I have graduated I have been applying everywhere in order to get my “dream job” but to be honest I am not sure I even know what that is anymore. It is so difficult to find a job right now that you pretty much have to take anything you can get. Unfortunately, I have never been that type of person. I don’t like settling. So the real question is, how far will I go? I mean two weeks ago I was thinking Georgia. That’s a pretty far jump and I was actually prepared to just up and leave my home. Maybe college did not fully prepare me for this part. The in-between. Honestly, I don’t care where I am or who I work with I just want to feel like I am actually doing something I care about.
Crossing my fingers because I think something is coming my way. Or at least I hope there is. Somewhere.
I am not sure how to deal with a few series of events lately. I think I am starting to get a little overwhelmed so before I let it get the best of me I figured I should address them. Now I’m not going to post all my issues/concerns for the whole world to read because, let’s be real that’ll create more drama for myself. Instead I am going to publish a few helpful “observations.”
1. Friends are your biggest support system, but the best ones never have to say they are sorry.
2. If you want something to change the first place to look is in the mirror.
3. Harmony exists when you understand the world from every angle.
Im not sure what it is but it’s something about the Olympics that gets me motivated to get back in shape. I was watching all these amazing gymnasts tonight and I miss being one and especially being in sick shape. So now that I got into running its time to go a step further. I think i am going to do the tough mudder in October. Although I don’t think I am in good enough shape right now I got a few months to get my ass in gear. First thing that needs to go is the thunders and my tummy. #dowork
Upon becoming a real person, I thought it was a good idea to make some real changes. First, that I get myself into a routine of going to bed at a decent hour and waking up with plenty of time to get ready. And, Second, start getting into running. I honestly do not have the time anymore to work out for more than an hour a day (although that wasn’t very consistent in college but anyway) so I thought running was the best of both worlds. What do you think? I get good cardio workout each night without overdoing it . I thought it was a fabulous idea and have been keeping up with my goal. I’ve been aiming to run at the least 2 miles each week. It’s only Monday night and I’m already at 2.5 and feel great. 👍
My beach club just installed a gym so I will be able to run and then go for a swim. Sounds like it’s going to be a good summer.
P.s. I work such long hours but I secretly like my job a lot 😃
I know I haven’t posted in forever but at least I have a good excuse. I have finally become a real person. I started working for Enterprise rent-a-car almost two weeks ago. It’s not exactly what I had in mind when I pictured my future post graduation but I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. I work with great people and it is so close to home which is great. I know everyone remembers that quote from The movie Stepbrohers and fortunately it is completely true. They actually do have a really great corporate structure and you can move up at your own pace. My goal is to be a branch manager in a little over a year so hopefully that works out. I also found out that they subsidize grad school. Count me in because I am not looking forward to loans. I will avoid them at all costs.
It stinks I really didn’t get to relax after graduation but I am extremely comfortable where I am and happy that I am not on a mad search for a job. It may not be where I thought I would end up but for now it is the best decision for me. I’ll keep you updated. Until next time.
I have been procrastinating so much with studying for this final it is unreal. I prepared myself too well to leave college. I was so scared I was not going to graduate that I took an extra 2 classes just to make sure. And now, I wish I was failing all of them. Except I am far from it.
I think the scariest part about leaving is that I have no idea what the next few months will bring. Previous years you are in a routine. Take your finals, pack up your room, enjoy summer and come back in the fall. And now….where am I going to be? God only knows.
So here’s to my last final. Probably should start studying.
My college career ends in less than a week. Woof. I am so scared. I have one final that separates me from real life. Sadly, I don’t even know where I will be going. As of right now, I am moving home to Brooklyn but if my job interview goes well for another company in Philly then I will be moving there. Crazy. I denied my first job offer a few days ago because they didn’t offer me enough money. If I am willing to relocate for a job then the least they could do is offer me decent money. Doesn’t even have to be a lot but enough that I can live off it. I was kind of annoyed they wasted my time. I was on an 8hour interview to find out I would be making next to nothing when they said otherwise previously. Well I guess you live and learn. Get all the information.
I have only 3 days left of classes and less than two weeks to graduation, I think. I am trying not to keep count but it has been so difficult to ignore.
This week I am going to finish all my final assignments of my college career and move on to “bigger and better things.” Personally, it drives me nuts when people say that because they cant foretell the future and honestly things are only bigger and better if you put the effort and determination in. So as far as bigger and better things, I am definitely working my butt off and trying as hard as I can to do well and get a job after college but only time and more hard work will tell.
I have an interview in King of Prussia tomorrow that I was supposed to have on Monday but I had to reschedule. My luck right? I swear every time I have an interview something happens. This time I got sick and had to be put on steroids. Awesome. But thank god I am interviewing with an understanding company because they called me today and are letting me make it up so I hope it goes well.
Now its time to get all this work done. Internship reaction paper, gero research paper, test next thursday, finish and edit profiles and somehow find a graduation dress? just a few things on the list no big deal.
WOAH I am graduating in exactly a month and two days. Where did the time go? But I have bigger issues- the job search. I am exhausted from all the interviews i had over break but I am excited because my last interview in Jersey on Friday went awesome!!!! I got a second interview within five minutes and the job is absolutely perfect. Marketing for well known teams, companies and brands also an opportunity to really grow with the company, which is one of the more important characteristics that I am looking for in a job. So excited. I have to set up my interview with them but in the meantime I sent the interviewer a thank you email so I am planning on calling them next week. I am doing it a little later because they would like immediate hire and she told me to call back in May but I told her I wanted to pretty much get started the day after graduation so she said we can set the second interview up around the end of April. Definitely made me look dedicated and eager to work so it worked in my favor. Hopefully all goes well for the second interview, or even for any other interviews I go on. My biggest fear right now is not getting a job and I am working my butt off to find one. WOOF. Only time will tell.
But I do have a question. Is it bad that I don’t have an actual suit? I have business clothing but I don’t have like the pants with the matching jacket. Should I go get one for the second interview or for future interviews? The last thing I want to look is unprofessional.
Im so glad everyone is enjoying their break while l am running from interview to interview. I’m exhausted. I had two interviews in the past two days and they went extremely well but I just want this process to be over already. I am so tired. I am pretty sure I got the position because when I left they sad they were putting me through my final interview tomorrow hopefully and then asked if I was offered the job tomorrow would I say yes? So I’m pretty sure that’s a good sign. Unfortunately, the interviewer talked so much during about the pros and cons that he turned me off from the job entirely. Although this was a back up, I still want to be somewhat interested/excited about it but, man, he ruined it.
So, on to the next one. I have an interview with a different company out in Jersey tomorrow so we will see how it goes. I am a little skeptical because it is a marketing company and I had a little trouble finding their website, which should be unheard of. Just need to keep an open mind. Only thing is, I have been so preoccupied with these interviews that I feel like I havent been able to go out and see my friends. Know this is a somewhat bad idea but im going out for a little tonight. I know myself and I know I will be fully capable tomorrow but I just need to get out.
Oh did I forget to mention that I miss York. Ever since the graduation thing hit me I am starting to miss it more and more. I refuse to do a countdown but by next week I will have a MONTH till graduation. Yikes!
Breaks from school are so bittersweet, especially since this is my last one. I am packing up all my winter clothing and shoes to take home and now my room just looks EMPTY. Definitely not a good feeling. I am also starting to get scared of my freshman year of real life. More pressure now than ever and on top of it, I have my follow-up interview tomorrow. WOOF.
Time to get prepared and get focused. I have been getting the hint of senioritis because, lets be real, I want to prolong leaving as much as possible. Someone told me yesterday that I am moving on to bigger and better things but, with some shadow of a doubt, how do they know? My life is pretty much in my hands at this point and I am not even sure where I am going to go from here. Funny thing is, I had to do an interview last week on a retiree from YCP and I did not have the slightest idea of what she meant when she said she does not know what direction her life will take. Now I definitely do and I am so scared. I am definitely prepared in the educational aspect and feel that I have matured these past four years but, God, I don’t want to leave this place.
Way too much to think about. Its going to be a very interesting car ride.
My birthday getaway plans fell through because I had a few sorority obligations that kept me here so instead I went to see the Hunger Games on thursday night with my roommates. I have to be honest it was not that great. Especially after readong 2 of the 3 books, I was not impressed whatsoever. It just didnt make sense and was difficult to follow because I felt like you were side swiped when they changed an important detail from the book. I was not happy. While trying not to give too much away, I was just very dissappointed they portrayed different meanings for certain situations. It was unfortunate cause you missed important aspects of the book that were also important later in the movie. example: What the meaning of the mokingjay is?
Just a suggestion/idea…I think they should have made it a narrative movie. Katniss had many different thoughts and feelings in her head that were not easily understood in this movie. She should have been narrating certain parts of the movie to keep everyone on track for poeple who did and did not read the book.
On a side note, I feel like this week is going to be a nightmare or just take about 10 years to pass by. I just want to be at my formal already. Come on Friday. PLLEEAAASSSEEE
Sooo next week is my birthday and I am trying to figure out what to do. I need to get out of York obviously because I have spent my past 3 birthdays here and although I had fun, I need a change of scenery.
I am planning on going some place completely different but I am not sure where. Here are some of my options but I am totally up for suggestions:
2. Baltimore/Fed Hill
4. NYC or Atlantic City
All of these will include my closest friends, shopping, dinner and going out BUT there are down sides to each of them. In Philly I get to see my sister and it is close but I have been there so many times so not really something new. Next is Fed Hill which I have been to only once but baltimore is a little sketchy sometimes so I don’t know how I feel about it plus I have to spend money on a hotel which is just a minor problem but also another problem I will be facing if we go to Annapolis. And if I go there I want to make a day of it but I can’t leave until after 1 in the afternoon Saturday cause of a sorority event sooo i will be missing out on the shopping and stuff and to top it off my sister wont be able to come. Lastly, NYC is just amazing and I would always love to go home but most of my friends are away at school, AC is also another option but I will most likely break the bank which will be an issue.
Decisions, decisions. I’ll keep you posted. Suggestions would be great!!!!!!
Ok so first phone interview did not go as smooth as I would have hoped. Once I answered the phone and said hello, we immediately got disconnected and then my phone reset itself. And everyone knows that when you have a Blackberry the reset will take like 10 long minutes so by the time I was able to call her back I missed my interview. THANK GOD this last was understanding of my blackberry dilemma and rescheduled it for today at 11. Too bad I was flustered and was not thinking because I agreed to an interview during my class time. So I had to skip class because I was freaking out, to have a less that 10 minutes phone interview in order to get sent to the second round of face-to-face interviews.
So YAYAYAYA I got another interview but I am definitely dumb for missing class. Hopefully my second of three interviews goes well. It is on April 4th so I will keep you posted on any preparations I will be doing.
#WOOF. This week has literally been the week from hell. Cant wait for the weekend to come so I can finally celebrate my first and last legal St. Patty’s Day in York!!
So I have a phone interview in a minute and I am kind of freaking out. I think they are soooo awkward. How are you supposed to be personable on the phone? And many interviewers pay attention to body language and facial expressions especially when it comes to an interview for a sales position. WOOF
UGH. Anyone have any advice.? I am so awkward on the phone in general I feel like there is no hope. We will see how this one goes. They are calling now.
I am absolutely obsessed with this website called Ideeli. It sells designer merchandise for hundreds less. And now that my tax check is burning a whole in my pocket I am going crazy.
Everyone needs to look at this website. Every day you get an email of the designers the site is featuring but the only problem is there is a 24 hr time limit. I honestly dont care if I can buy a pair of Etienne Aigner for $200 less than the original price, you can bet that there was not a question in my mind of not getting them. Best boots I ever bought FYI.
There are sooo many events coming up like formals, graduation, weddings, and just spring in general so I am in desperate need of some new dresses.
MICHELLE WILLIAMS! She was featured on the red carpet at the Oscars in a tiered bright red dress by Louis Vuitton. Designer not only knows how to make gorgeous bags that dress is to die for. The open back is stunning and the strapless cut was a good choice to accent her features and hair style. Fashion Police said that Angelina Jolie was going to be best dressed but I beg to differ. Michelle looked 100x better than her. Jolie wore a black Atlelier Versace dress to the Oscars tonight and to be honest when your leg looks smaller than the children’s lives you were trying to save in third world countries… thats a serious problem. What kind of example are you setting? I think she looks absolutely lost in her dress. Michelle rocked it at the Oscars bottom line. Hopefully the Fashion Police do not screw this up tomorrow night and vote for the wrong person.
Soo I am currently a graduating senior at YCP and waited 4 years to find out I still have no idea what I am going to do in life. awesome.
I have always had future ideas in my head. Immediately get a PR job out of college, work in the student activities office at a college, maybe get my masters.. And well the ideas are great and I love the options but I need something concrete.
I have been randomly applying for jobs and updating my linkedin but I feel like it is still up in the air. I need to get my act together. So I figured since I do not know what I want to do but I know what I like why don’t I go get my masters. Because you know what they say once you leave school you are probably never going back. NOT ME.
Thanks to Professor Woodall for giving me some great advice, I am applying to take the GRE and try to get a Masters of Science in Marketing Research. If only i could figure out how. There are so many different requirements, essays, recommendations. It is exactly like applying to college again. AND now I am on a time constraint because the application deadline is april 30 and i need to take the test 15 days before i send the app in. WOOF .
well I guess I will have to wait but at least I know that I am going to go or have the option of applying for the spring.
Just watching TLC with my roommates and we came across the show My 600lb. Life and I can honestly say that I am 1. grossed out and 2. scared to death of ever becoming like that.
I am in a marketing class called Consumer Behavior and I had this case study for homework that said 62% of American women are plus size (sizes 14 and up). Now I am not saying that plus size is a bad thing because I think that someone with curves is praise worthy but having a documentary on your 600 lb life is a little much. Like when do you tell yourself enough is enough?
I think that a little exercise goes a long way. I am not an avid gym goer anymore but on occasion I will go to get my butt back into shape but if I even had the slightest signs of becoming overweight and it becoming a health risk/issue that can lead to death, I would be running to my nearest doctor, gym, nutritionist, anywhere to help me.
I promote being comfortable in your own skin, but when you find yourself becoming a hazard to your own life….its time to take control.
So i heard that while that party got busted last weekend, someone got robbed at gun point down jackson and it took the cops a half hour to respond… SERIOUS PROBLEM
Not to be rude but I think the cops need to concentrate more on things like robberies and muggings rather than some college kids trying to enjoy the betters years of their life.
It is just ridiculous. And I understand that the school is trying to get kids to live on campus for four years starting with the incoming freshman to make a safer place for kids. Very nice that you are thinking of us but I think you need to make a few adjustments. The campus needs to become wet. How are you going to tell a 21 year old they can only have a six pack in their apartment and if they come home intoxicated that they may or may not get a citation? Sounds to me like if you take a little you gotta give a little as well. Eliminating underage drinking is all well and good but this is the time where you want kids to make their mistakes and learn from them instead of letting them make similar mistakes in their professional lives. No need to create a jail cell.
Another thing to think about. We have two blocks of college kids living in low income housing right now. If you eliminate kids from living on Jackson and let real people move in that are low income families and/or people that bring crime how are the police going to eliminate it? Hmmm interesting question.
Recruitment is finally over and THANK GOD because I am so happy to be in ALPHA SIGMA TAU! I have been dying to say that since I came back in January. I had no problem being unbiased during recruitment but the silence was killing me. So glad that is over but….
Recruitment went so great! Congratulations to all 6 of the NPC Chapters on their new members! Bid Party was such a surprise. It was cool that we had our own personal bid ceremony but I do miss the old days where each sorority was introduced to their new girls in Buechel. I liked it being a greek thing rather and seeing where all the girls I met matched up with.
But Now the fun starts. Each new member will be going to Greek 101 today to learn about safety and preventative policies, then they get pinned! All the girls will have ribbon pins on with their sorority colors, working towards their badges and finally becoming a sister.
It was so cute, last night one of my new girls asked me if she was my sister yet. I unfortunately had to tell her not yet but I can wait till she finally is! My sorority has a total of 11 new members and we could not be more happy. The new member process is so rewarding for both parties so I am excited for the next 6 weeks.
Congratulations again to all the sororities and fraternities on campus for their new members!! Good Luck!!
Recruitment is almost over and the nerves are kicking in. I loved being a recruitment buddy. Watching the girls come back from visiting different sororities was such a different experience than what I am used to.
The whole process was so cool to watch. All the girls looked so nervous but I want to make a point to say, trust your gut feeling. Today, they filled out their contracts binding them to their final two choices. I could imagine what they are feeling like at this moment. Probably wondering which sorority they will be matched with and if they made the right decision. Trust your gut feeling. There is a reason why you put a certain chapter first and although its normal to second guess yourself, trust in the system and yourself.
I hope that everyone is happy with their choices. And I cannot wait to identify myself with my sorority tomorrow. It has been killing me that i cant wear my letters!!!! CANNOT WAIT for bid party tomorrow night!!! So excited! Thanks again for participating and congratulations to the new members of our NPC chapters!!!!!
In my classes I have been learning a lot about how exercise can dramatically improve your quality of life. And do not get me wrong, I am active, well I was. My gym attendance has decreased a lot but I still make sure I am walking places and well I babysit so chasing around kids for about 15 hours a week is my exercise at this point.
Although, that is no excuse. I definitely still have time for the gym but to be honest i refuse to go anymore. I am not losing weight when I go, I am gaining it. Gaining muscle. I dont want that at all. I am 5 foot nothing, literally, and on the smaller side (i hope). The last thing I want is to be jacked or “swollen.” I need some suggestions. What can I do in order to continue to drop weight without looking like I am getting a daily dosage of roids? Any suggestions would be awesome cause it be nice to improve my “quality of life” and look good doing it. Creative suggestions are happily accepted :)
So I think i have decided that the parade is just a no go for me. I realized that my priorities need to be geared towards school. AND it will be a little pathetic and irresponsible if i dont show up for the 1 of 2 days I have to be in school. So unfortunately I will miss the parade but I trust that this wont be the last parade for my Giants. BUT now that I decided I am not going why can I not finish my work????? I have been staring at this press release for pretty much the whole day and although i know it will take me less than 10 minutes to write, it is just not happening.
Procrastinating is seriously like a disease. It makes you think your hungry, sleepy, restless, may have an addiction to facebook/twitter/PINTEREST. So now that I have diagnosed myself at least I am not a hypochondriac also. It is just a never ending battle. Like all I want to do is sit on pinterest and look at recipes I cant make and clothes that i dont have. I guess I am adding depression to my list of symptoms. I just dont have the will power to get off that website. it is just the best thing ever created. Like who knew looking at home improvement pictures and electrical outlets in your bathroom drawers make me jealous. That is a serious problem. I need to separate from that website. forget senioritis i got pinterest problems.
The NEW YORK GIANTS have won Super Bowl XLVI against the Patriots and I am ecstatic! But it brings up a very important question. Who is going to the Giants parade in New York City tomorrow?
I am dying to go but should I really miss my only day of classes during the week? Decisions, decisions. I love the Giants and I also love my hometown of NYC. On the other hand, I also would like to get 4’s across the board my last semester in college. And I have to work tomorrow. I will be contemplating jumping my car all day and, especially, all night. Why is this soooo difficult to decide? May have to sit this one out. I have a feeling I will regret it.
Bottom line: I love the New York Giants!!!!!!!
Here is info about the parade if you are lucky enough to go»»>
"Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg announced tonight that New York City will host a ticker-tape parade in honor of the Super Bowl XLVI Champions New York Giants on Tuesday, February 7th, 2012. The parade will begin at Battery Place and Washington Street at 11:00 AM and continue northbound up the Canyon of Heroes to Worth Street. The parade will be followed by a ceremony at City Hall Plaza, at which the Mayor will present the NY Giants with Keys to the City."
When I was applying to college, the farthest thing from my mind was joining a sorority. There was always a stereotype in my mind linked to that group— blonde, skinny, and sort of dumb. Well THANK GOD that is not entirely true. Of course some girls are blonde in greek life, that’s a given, but all the girls that I have met throughout my 3 greek years have been intelligent, beautiful inside and out and have really made my college experience.
This semester I decided to be a Recruitment Counselor, which unfortunately prevents me from telling you which sorority I am in. But it does help me tell you why Greek Life should ABSOLUTELY be considered when you are looking for a club or organization to join.
Simple but cliche, the people I have met in greek life WILL be my life long friends. Its not everyday you meet a family outside your blood, but here I did. As a group you work together, play together and even sometimes live together, in my case. Its a different type of friendship that you don’t come across often. Funny thing is my actual sister gets offended I call this group of girls my sisters. She always says “they are your SORORITY sisters.” But to me, sometimes they are one in the same. Because these girls are my home away from home.
Heads up! Sorority Recruitment starts February 8th! If you are interested in joining, click this link—> #mce_temp_url#
Who would do such a terrible thing? Oh wait that’s me.
It sounds absolutely awful. And yet, I have to do it by February 6th. Once I do it, the countdown suddenly begins. I will have my last semester at YCP before my freshman year of real life. Funny to think that you thought you would be in school forever and then it ends with a blink of an eye. Well this is a bittersweet feeling that I am forced to endure. Another funny fact, do you remember the stereotype that freshman are unlucky? Well, I think they are the luckiest of all. Just on the way to finishing their freshman year, I wish I was in their shoes. If only.
First snow fall in York. I was so happy. I have been waiting for it to feel like winter. And thanks to my roommate Blair, my friends and I went sledding on the hill across from campus today. My legs were killing me and I was definitely out of breath by the time we finally got up there, but it was so worth it. We used our sorority card board boat that we made for the boat regatta at Spartapalooza. It was insane. We wiped out numerous times but it was hilarious. Thankfully Blair got it all on video.
Once we were done I decided that I am finally going to listen to Blair and make a bucket list for my last semester. There are always so many things that I say “I want to do that” like jump in the fountain and play an intramural sport but lets be real I never do them. Now I am going to make a conscious effort to do them. Ill keep you updated as I start to make moves.
Week one is down. It was semi stressful. I dont know what it is, the drop add period always gets me. I feel like their is pressure to look for better class when I am already in pretty good ones. This semester I am taking it easy like an elder. All gerontology courses that is. Pretty excited to be honest. I love learning about old people and the behavioral science department. Everyone is just so nice and easy going, makes me feel relaxed. Another plus side is I will know how to deal with my parents when they become senile. I am sure they would love to hear that.
