“It’s Too Soon for That”

It's too soon for that

Here’s the Thing… Awhile back, I was discussing with a co-worker some things that I thought should be updated on the company’s website. It wasn’t anything drastic, just some adjustments that I felt would be more professional and would better reflect the company. My co-worker objected with the reasoning that since we were not yet at the level where we…

How to Survive a Music Festival

How to Survive a Music Festival

Here’s the Thing… I am a big fan of live music. Even if I don’t know the band at all, I will still enjoy myself just because I love the energy that comes from concerts so much. I went to my first concert when I was 14 and have been tagging along with my mom to concerts ever since. However, music…
