We're officially three months into the new year, and I feel like I can do a quick check on my New Years resolutions. So far, as to be expected some are a fail.
“Where do you see yourself in five years?” has become a dreaded question for me in interviews. I’m not sure how to answer this question. Even being close to 30, I still have no idea where I want my career to take me. Do I answer the question honestly of I actually still don’t know what I want out of my career? I feel I still haven’t grown enough in my skills to fully know what I want. Or do I just flounder through the question and say, I want somewhere I can grow and become a manager?
I know there are people out there who think that resolutions are a waste of time, but I don't think they necessarily are. We all have a list of goals of things we want to achieve or items we want to work on about ourselves.
Underrated Pogues Christmas song
As I’ve been re-watching Gilmore Girls, I’ve been feeling more and more like Rory Gilmore. Except I didn’t attend a private high school, wasn’t valedictorian, or go to an Ivy League school. But, I am an only child, majored in journalism during college, huge coffee drinker and have a close relationship with my parents. Not quite Lorelai and Rory close, but still close. Personality wise though I’m realizing I share a lot of the same traits Rory exemplifies, positive or negative.
Round two *ding ding. If you missed Part 1, click here. Gorgeous – From the get go people assumed it was about Joe. Taylor told the secret session listeners it was about Joe Alwyn. But, here is another song that I don’t think is about Joe, but in fact about Karlie Kloss. There is also confusion about whether the lines “I got a boyfriend, he’s older than us/He’s in the club doing I don’t know what” is about Calvin or Tom. So it’s hard to go on a timeline with this song. But, the song also writes that it isn’t about a guy. Once again, it sounds like she is possibly covering up feelings for a woman.
Taylor Swift just released her latest album Reputation. Of course, since it’s Taylor Swift, there’s a lot of anticipation that comes with this. She’s had a lot going on the past three years since 1989. And I’m not necessarily talking about musically. I wanted to put together my own interruption of each song since there are multiple ways to look at each song.
When we are younger we think our friends will be there for us throughout our entire lives. You go through elementary school, middle school, and high school together. These are friends you’ve known for 12 plus years, there’s no way you can see your life without them. But, you go to college, possibly not to the same college, and maybe hundreds, possibly thousands of miles away from one another.
For the past six months, I’m not going to lie; I’ve been living off of unemployment. That means my income has been cut, and I’ve had to budget myself more strictly than I was previously. Not that I was living outside of means before losing my job, but weekends out, delivery, eating out, impulse shopping trips, concerts, are more limited than before.
