Something I've been thinking a lot about lately is the idea of love and marriage. How can you live together with one person for your entire life and still carry that spark? You hear these old couples all the time that talk about how they love their spouse more and more with time, but how do they do it? I want to make sure that happens to me!
You Accomplished Your Goals-Now What
I wish I had a dollar for every time someone asked me what I plan to do now that I've graduated. In fact, people started asking me those questions well before I graduated. Heck, I could probably be in the Bahamas by now if I would have legitimately charged for every question! Disclaimer: Before I …
