August Goals Wrap-up

I really have no excuse for my lack of posting...I mean I'm a busy person but I miss doing this all the time so much...I vow to be better! Here's the re-cap of this month's goals:

1. Go to the gym (I will do this someday!)-Funny story...I went to the gym, stripped in the locker room, only to discover I didn't have shorts with me...FAIL  
2. Read (or at least start depending on how bad it is) 50 Shades of Grey.  Completed!  It  really is more of a romance novel that the BDSM-ness that I expected.  But I read all 3...and now I'm halfway through Pride and Prejudice! 

3. Get my professional manicure-CHECK!  I cashed in my groupon and got it last week (and my nails are already so chipped they need repainted...no wonder its addicting!)
4. Reach my 500 Twitter followers goal (I'm so close!)-I'm still 50 away!  Why is this so hard!?
5. Rearrange the spare bedroom-I started this but its not really completed.  I moved the bed and dresser...but I didn't get the chance to turn the old kitchen table into a desk crafting space before Dolly moved in.   



And now for a life update: 

As alluded to above my apartment is now being shared with Josh and Dolly (the cat who I am convinced is evil but Josh says is not).  He's temping downtown so they're staying with Lucie and I.  We went to Indiana last weekend to go to a wedding for one of his law school friends and before that we had tickets to see Avenue Q (which is hilarious and highly recommended).  I'm also excited about my first attempt at a Fantasy Football league...bring on Fall! 


Look out for more tonight or tomorrow!

Odd Pets

Every once in a while I click the "Marketplace" application on my Facebook page (in case someone is giving away a free bed that I could use).  Upon doing so yesterday I saw a pet Wallaby for sale for $1,200.  
I want one.  
However, the question is...can I have one?  Are wallabys...or is it wallabies...or maybe walleye...no that's definitely not it...you know what I mean...but are they legal in this state?
Well let's start with what we know is legal: cats and dogs (unless your landlord says no then you'll be out on the street), most lizards, but those are basic pets.  Here's a little snippet into the unusual (and expensive) pets.  
World's most expensive pets: 
Green Monkey: $16 million Missy: $1.2 million Capuchin Monkey: $10,000 That's right.  I said LEGAL!  There are neither bans nor requirements on monkey ownership in Ohio so go for it!  Buy your monkey!
Need a less feminine monkey?  Try these guys!
De Brazza's Monkey: $7,000-$10,000

Squirrel Monkey: $…

Gen Y Gives Thanks

I apologize a thousand times for the lack of updates and for putting this up so late. Large amounts of technical difficulties have inhibited my blogging, email checking, social networking, etc. However, now that I have a moment's internet access I would like to give you the link to this brilliant idea that Sharalyn Hartwell has cooked up. She writes for the Gen Y Examiner and to combat the stereotype that Gen Y is a bunch of ungrateful brats she asked members of Gen Y to write what they're grateful for and has been posting them in series.

Here's the link. She's posted a few each day so keep reading these articles of course I'm partial to mine which can be read here.



Your Blog: Resume Boost or Liability?

I have recently read two different blogs that have both touched on the same topic. How your blog affects your resume and/or job search. The first was an interview with Sasha Halima, one of my favorite bloggers, at PR Breakfast Club. You can read it here. The second is on Brand Yourself, Your Blog is Your Extended Resume.

Brand Yourself argues just what the title says that a blog is an extended resume and that when a potential employer searches for you and finds a blog full of fabulous content, they'll hire you.

And while I couldn't agree more that I AGONIZED over the fact that potential employers were most likely Googling me and getting results for some person in Seattle or a Blues Singer in New York the interview with Sasha Halima said something that also struck a chord with me. Your blog can be a "liability." That is the scariest word that any potential employer could ever say because, if you're a liability to them, odds are other potential employers could fee…
