Why The Office is such an amazing show…

The Office is a show that many college students, along with adults, enjoy. It is revolved around normal looking people that work in a office for the paper company, Dunder Mifflin. What makes this show so amazing is how relatable each character is.

First, you have Micheal Scott. He is the office manager who is an idiot, but and idiot that cares for his workers well-being.

Next you have Dwight Schrute. I believe this is a Dwight in every work setting. His character takes work way too seriously and strictly follows the most obscene rules. He is also a know it all.


You cannot talk about Dwight without discussing Jim. He is the young office prankster. He often spends way too much time pranking Dwight rather than doing his work, but somehow he still has a job and does it well.


Now, you can’t talk about Jim without discussing Pam. She is the office secretary. Right from the start of the series, there is a connection between Pam and Jim. Unfortunately, Pam is engaged to another man, which creates s little conflict. Luckily, the engagement falls through, thus Jim and Pam are able to be together and eventually get married.

There are many other supporting characters that make this show even more unique and hilarious, such as Stanley. He is the office grouch who thinks retirement cannot come soon enough. There is only one day of the year that makes everything worth it, and that is Pretzel Day. There is also an old crazy guy name Creed that throws everyone off. He is never really understanding what is going on because he is off in his own world.

Why I find mowing the lawn therapeutic

Most people hate mowing the law, unless they have a riding mower. I have a push (that’s not self propelled) mower and I enjoy cutting the grass!

Sometimes, it can be inconvenient since you cannot control when the yard needs to be maintained. After getting used to knowing when it needs to be taken care of, you just get over it.

The reason I love mowing my yard is because it acts as a stress reliever for me. When school time starts up, so does anxiety, but nothing too much to where a little exercise from mowing can’t fix. Another reason I enjoy it is because of the sense of accomplishment once you are finished. Seeing those lines in the grass all neat while sipping on a cold glass of water is bliss, especially on those hot dog days at the end of summer, when grass cutting can be almost unbearable and you have to take at least three breaks just to get out of the heat.


I find mowing to be a prideful thing that gives your house that little extra touch of love. As you are outside, it is also a way of getting to know your neighbors.


Overall, a person is able gain a sense of accomplish for mowing their lawn along with exercise and stress relief. There are worse things than maintaining your yard.

10 Fun Facts about Disney World

Disney World in Orlando, FL is known as the happiest place on earth. As someone who appreciates how things work behind the scenes, here are some fun facts that go into the magic of Disney:

  1. Magic Kingdom is built on the second floor. The first floor consist of various pathways for cast members to move from one end of the part to another. 170531-disney-tips
  2. another with the first fun fact, these tunnels prevent a cast member from Tomorrowland to be seen in Liberty Square. This is to maintain themes throughout the park.
  3. The entrance of Animal Kingdom is built on a incline. This is to get guests to slow down and appreciate the greenery around them.
  4. Animal Kingdom is the only park with locks on the bathroom door. The purpose is for safety measures in case an animal has gotten loose. Cast members can gather many guests and safely lock everyone inside, preventing a wild animal from harming them.animal kingdom
  5. EPCOT is an acronym for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. epcot
  6. Cinderella’s castle is built on a force perspective. The closer you get the castle, you will notice that the ‘bricks’ get smaller and smaller as you look towards the top. This is to create the illusion that the castle is taller than one thinks.
  7. Hollywood Studios used to be a working production facility. hollywood-blvd
  8. There is no gum sold at any of the parks, because Disney wants to maintain the cleanliness of their parks. You will also never be more than 30 feet from a trash can
  9. In Animal Kingdom, straws and lids are not provided to guest. This is so animals in the park will not get ahold of those items and cause health problems.
  10. If you are celebrating a birthday, your first time at Disney, anniversary, etc, let your resort concierge know (if you are staying at a Disney resort) and you can get a free button saying what you are celebrating. As you walk around the parts, many of the cast members will wish you a Happy Birthday or Anniversary, etc. It’s a nice way to make your experience even more magical.

8 Tips for acing that interview

Recently, I have been looking into steps to take as one prepares for an interviews. These pieces of advice come from being the most memorable to making sure you also fit in. As one prepares for interview, some of the most common sense things become some of the most missed things, So here are some common sense and not so common sense things to prepare for and to do during an interview:

  1. Do your research and know the position you are applying for. Go further than just the job description.research
  2. Dress professionally. Dress as if you are about to meet the CEO of the company.professional dress
  3. Be seen before you are smelled. Try not to use perfume or cologne, and if you do, use one spritz.
  4. Give a firm handshake (you too, ladies). Don’t give the dead fish! This can be one of the first things an interviewer noticed about your confidence in getting that position you applied for.handshake
  5. Maintain eye contact. this shows you are confident and are comfortable with meeting new people and having a discussion with them.
  6. Also have confident posture. Don’t slouch down while looking at the floor. square your shoulders up to your interviewer and confidently look them in the eyes.
  7. Show your passions in your interview. This shows that you are a person with interests (and if you can tie that into your future position, then do so!).
  8. Send a ‘Thank you’ note. Email is okay, but hand written is best. A woman once told me class that she had interviewed over 100 applicants in a single year. She received no hand written thank you notes, and only received one “thank you” email. By sending a these little personal notes, it shows interviewers that you truly want that job and show passion for it. This can often set you apart, landing you a job you want.

With these tips, you can surely be a top contender in the final decision process of filling a position you have applied for.

Comedians to watch on Netflix

Are you a fan of comedy and have a Netflix account, or using your parents account? If yes, then you should watch Jim Jefferies: Freedumb. First, Jefferies is an offensive comedian with vulgar language. There are no limits between him giving an interesting take on American politics (he’s Australian) or making Bill Cosby rape jokes. If this doesn’t seem funny to you, then disregard his show. While most stand-ups are 100% laxed and pure entertainment, during one part of his show, he gets serious explaining possibly outcomes from immigrants if Donald Trump were elected (this was released prior to the election. While it gets serious, Jefferies is able to come right back to making light of a situation and getting his audience on their feet.

Another comedian to watch is Iliza Schlesinger: Freezing Hot. I’m a woman who is (honestly) not a major fan of women comedians. That was until I listened to Schlesingers stand-up. Her show is based around the difficulties of being a woman, trying to date, trying to act like the stereotypical ditsy girl on a date with a strong man. Although her show is based on stereotypes, all women know at least one woman like the person Schlesinger is talking about, which is what makes her jokes so hilarious.

One of the last comedians to take a look at is DeAnne Smith. While she is not on Netflix, she is one to keep an eye out for. She givers her perspective on life through a lesbians point of view. Some of her comedy is hit and miss. One of her best jokes is about how straight men need to step their game up when it comes to keeping their women happy.

Let me know if you watch and enjoy some of these comedians I mentioned!

Why is can be harder to lose a pet than your parent or sibling

After taking a summer course on the Sociology of Death and Dying, one topic that stood out to me what was how it can be harder to lose your pet compared to losing a parent or sibling. I have never doubted that animals, such as dogs and cats, were considered family members, but I have come from a family where I was deprive of sharing a special bond with a fury four legged friend.

In an article on Business Insider, a man tells his painful story of how he and his wife had to put down their beloved dog, Murphy. In this story, Frank tells how animals provide their human with real unconditional love. In this case, dogs do not talk back to you, they do not judge you. the are not capable and do not care about your religious beliefs or sexual orientation. They just ask for love and to feed them occasionally.  Dogs are just always happy to see their human as soon as you walk through the garage door after a hard day of work. IMG_9493

To push point even further , imagine your morning routine of brushing your teeth, putting clothes on, and you last step is putting shoes on. Every time you sit down to put your shoes on, your dog puts its nose under your hand, begging for a single pet stroke. You abide because you’re no devil. Imagine doing this every morning for 13 years, expecting that gentle caress of love toward your beloved animal. After 13 years, that adds up to 4,745 pet strokes, then one day your pet is not there.

After having to put your pet down, you do not get that amazing greet when arriving home from work. You don’t have that snuggle buddy on the couch. You don’t continue on with that loving caress in the morning while putting your shoes on. You don’t have that unconditional love your furry friend provided.

When you get home today, give that four legged friend a pet, kiss, hug, and maybe even a treat if they’ve been a good boy or girl!


Enterprise Rent-A-Car Internship

During the summer of 2016, I was one of 26 people to be accepted into Enterprise Rent-A-Car Management Trainee Internship. I applied for this position because I thought it could help me find out what I would like to do with my life, I was tired of working in a deli after two years, and it was paid. After a phone interview and an in person interview, I was chosen to participate in this wonderful three month learning experience.

Going into this internship, I had no clue what to expect. During a day of training at their headquarters in Louisville, talent directors express what their expectations were of their interns, which consisted of dressing in professional attire, when selling make sure you get at least three ‘No’s,’ show concern and compassion to customers realizing they could come from just having a wreck, and keep a positive and competitive attitude.


Even after this introduction to what was expected of us, I still was not clear on how the average work day would go. I had never rented a car, let alone driven anyone else’s car besides my 18 year old mini van and my mothers SUV. After just two days on the job, I was fixed with the task of driving someone back to their house that was a few minutes away from our branch. I drove a little Chevy Cruze, thinking it was the coolest thing since I was not used to nice, new cars.

After three months of driving all sorts of new, under 40,000 miles, cars ranging from a small Fiat 500 to a Chevy Suburban, I realized I was able to find features I liked and disliked. What cars were quality or garbage.

One of my favorite days of the internship was when my boss asked if I would mind driving a convertible Camaro to drop off at one branch and bring back a Mustang. Ummmm where are the keys, boss man?

Overall, this experience was one I will remember and will also be useful when dealing with future career skills. I was tasked with everything from vacuuming out a car, to going out and marketing, and getting businesses to push Enterprise over other rental car places. I was also able to make relationships that will help me in my future endeavors.

Last note: It seems a little silly to trust college students with news cars, especially sports cars. challenger

Hidden Mickey’s around Disney World

While most people go to Disney World for rides, attractions, and food, many do not know about the hidden Mickey’s scattered all around the parks and resorts. There are approximately over 800 hidden Mickey’s waiting to be found. So while you are bored in that 120 minute wait for Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, take a look around and see if you can find a hidden Mickey (Hint: there’s one in the lobby between the doors that have marble panels, before entering the next room, there are two sets of three small circles in the floor tiles, unlike any of the other tile pieces in the room.)rock n roller coaster hidden mickey

Other areas to look for these hidden gems, is simply looking down at the carpet or floor below you. While some Mickey’s are obvious, others are not.


When I was in Disney World for 2017 Spring Break, I mentioned to my friends about the hidden Mickey’s. Because we were on a constant seek and find mission anywhere we went, it seemed as if we kept busy without an ounce of boredom. Even on every ride or attraction we went to, we would look for and hopefully spot that hidden Mickey, eventually yelling out “HIDDEN  MICKEY,” not caring who heard. Who knows, you might share your knowledge and spread some fun elsewhere! As a 22 year old in college, that was one of the best spring breaks I’ve ever had! I hope you have a blast searching hidden Mickey’s, too!IMG_9511.JPG
