Welcome to S&T's #TBT! This week's post is an official throwback post from 2015. I'm considering whether to re-release old posts on the blog every first Thursday of the month. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section! I remember when I found out that Santa Claus wasn't real. I thought to myself: Now, … Continue reading The Greatest Lie Millennials Believe
Call me entitled because my parents told me I was special. Call me a unfocused because I switch jobs more often than most people switch the songs on their workout playlists. Call me Peter Pan because I still live with my parents. Call me whatever you want because I believe there is more to life than … Continue reading What’s Wrong With My Employers?
After being single for a long time, a woman can't help but wonder whether she has missed Mr. Right. Here's how I cope.
I care too much about what people think of me. I'm tired of being a worry wart. It is debilitating. Recently, I stumbled across an article while surfing the net. I chuckled as I read it because it helped me realize how utterly ridiculous it is to care what others are thinking about me.
Regardless of whether you've ever compared yourself to me or not, the truth is that life has been no picnic for me in the last few years. I've endured some experiences that were so humiliating; I couldn't even gather the courage to post them on my blog anonymously.
A woman's wedding day is a day that a woman begins planning from the time she is a little girl. Her heart is set on having the perfect wedding and marrying the perfect man. But why wait until you've found Mr. Right? Why not get married now, regardless of whether or not your single? Get married to … Continue reading My “Younique” Marital Vows
People say the dumbest things. It's almost as if they speak before they think and if you're like me, you're often on the receiving end of thoughtless comments. I still believe that people have pure intentions; they don't mean to offend you, but they do, unfortunately. Why not keep a running list of things to NEVER say to someone. I'll list mine, and you can list yours in the comment section.
"I feel like a grown woman, now," I told my girls on my most recent birthday, "Ain't nobody got time for that!"
I don't know whether to nod in agreement or hang my head in shame whenever I read an article on how 20-somethings operate in the workplace. Our desire for flexible jobs, over-confidence in our ability to work in high-paying and powerful positions and our sense of entitlement have been talked about in many online news … Continue reading What’s Wrong With My Millennial Employees?
Some women behave as if the gates of hell will open up and snatch them up if they are still single on their 30th birthday. The pressure to marry is real to them, but not me. I am okay being an unmarried 30 year old. And here's why.
I've created a list of my favorite attributes. I started it earlier this year and have been adding to it as time passes by. Here's what I love about me:
I edit academic papers, blogs, and other miscellaneous documents. I plan special events. I am a program manager, grant-writer, funding-seeker for various organizations in the field of public health. I am a research specialist, administrative coordinator, and hospitality worker. And most importantly, I blog at Scribbles & Tostitos Blog. My job description has not always … Continue reading Hustle While You Work
I carry boxing gloves in the trunk of my car. It scares people, but I try to reassure them that they should not be scared. My boxing gloves protect them from me. I suffer from a case of passive-aggressiveness. Kickboxing is my form of therapy. Whenever I feel a bit tense, I grab my boxing … Continue reading 5 Ways You’re Accidentally Making People Hate You
I know what you're thinking. And it's not that F-word. Failure comes to greet when we least expect it, leaving us to feel insecure, incapable, and sometimes depressed. I am learning that isn't always a bad thing. We learn perseverance when we fail; our weaknesses are strengthened in our failure. Failure will always lead to … Continue reading The “F-Word”
I wanted to jump, spin, do my church dance and yell "HALLELUJAH" when I read this post last night. The writer's remarks about the ridiculous remarks people make to single people is on point. I'm not in my 30's yet, but the article below still applies. Next time I am asked a question like "How … Continue reading Stuff Not To Say To Your Single 30-Something Friend
Have you ever been asked an offensive question? Twenty-somethings are on the receiving end of these questions more than others. Here's a list of what not to say to a twenty-something.
A 20-Something's greatest flaw is our tendency to compare ourselves to others
If I could choose any album to depict life in my 20s it would be Alanis Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill." Yeah, I know that album was released 16 years ago, but it is still relevant! There's a song on that album that fits my mood at almost any given moment in my life. For instance: When … Continue reading Jagged Little Pill: Soundtrack to My 20s
