The Joys of Job Hunting // and other frightening tales of adulthood

"Sarah, you need a job," Anna informed me one day. "Pffffffft," said I, "jobs are for stressed out adults who have too much to do, can't pay their taxes, and survive on a diet of saltines and microwavable Kraft macaroni--" --and then I realized I was all of these things.

The Road to Graduation // and other frightening tales of social phobia

Y'know, after a two-month break from blogging, you think I’d be more prepared for my return post. As it is, I only finished this an hour ago. So hello, everyone! I'm back. How's your month going? Hopefully better than mine. After being away for so long, I wish I could give you a proper hello [...]
