What Nobody Tells You about Cloud 9

Nobody tells you the difference between cloud 9 and the honeymoon phase. The honeymoon phase is disposable, it's temporary and you know eventually you have to get back to reality. Cloud 9 is like the worst drug on the street and you're either emotionally stuck up there (like a studio 54 go-go dancer), or when you do try to climb down, you don't float off of it gracefully, you crash hard and in most cases, it's the guy who instantly fears for his own life.
Remember, men are hunters and if their pride is compromised by lack of competence in a situation, he may soon feel as if any minute now Kathy Bates is going to come in with a sledgehammer. The last thing you want is for him to think you brainwashed him for six months. 
He soon realizes his future is too valuable thinking to himself, "if this is what happens when you fall in love I want no part of it." He's not mature enough to restrategize and find a better approach. (in some cases, but don't assume y…

What Men are Really Thinking

So this guy you really like, only after a few dates gives you the "I've been thinking" speech. Whether it was the tiniest blunder on your part or something in his world that clashes with yours, he's quick to pull the plug.

Since women typically like to use romantic comedies and fiction novels as a reference to their personal lives it's in my best interest to tell you that the men in those movies don't always "think" like men in real life. Generally in a movie when a guy needs some time to think he is automatically ready to pull the plug until minutes before the credits he realizes the bigger picture and they live happily ever after (or at least that's what we always assume).

The truth is, when a man uses the phrase "I've been thinking.." nothing good ever really comes after that.

Why? When a man (boy, guy or however you want to call him) says they have been thinking it really means "I have confirmed something I have already d…

Adults And The Economy

It is no secret the economy is at a struggle. So many twenty something year old college grads and students deal with nagging questions regarding their future to which may feel overwhelming and just plain annoying.

I've personally noticed that adults(while aware that it is hard to find employment they) don't seem to really understand how bad the economy truly is.(Especially if they've had their  current job for some time)

Through the years I've gathered common accusations that many adults have towards young adults and the economy..

1. If you're going to a 2 year College, they automatically assume you're only going there to prepare for a University. Not realizing that:

A. While 2 year colleges do set students up to continue their education at a University they also offer programs that only require an 1-2 years of training. (Sometimes even less). This means they are prepared to look for employment for jobs such as dental assistant, office assistant, or massage th…

7 Trends that Need to Make a Comeback

1. Sending Letters- 
When was the last time you mailed a handwritten letter?
When was the last time you got one in the mail?
Wouldn't it be nice to find that someone took the time to tell you how the felt with a pen and paper then through a text message which is probably mostly Emojis?

2. Movie Rentals-
Okay yes, we have Netflix and Hulu, which are great!, but now all patience is lost now that we can binge on an entire series in less than a week

3. Land Line Telephones-
We pay for unlimited minutes yet how much do you actually use those "minutes" to have a conversation with someone?

4. Disposable Cameras-
Thanks to front facing cameras, camera phones, and instagram "selfies" Technology has taken the fun out of photography.

We should just go back to clicking a button and hoping for the best at least then we may be a little less vain

5. Radio Dedications-
Since we can just easily post a song via Facebook no one really listens to the radio on their way to work ho…

3 Reasons Why your Ex Contacts you During the Holidays

Ever wonder why when you finally hear from your ex, it's during the holidays?  Well there is a perfectly reasonable explanation to this madness...
After a breakup, you may go through a period where all communication is officially closed. You can't exactly pick up the phone and contact them the way you used to and you spend months hoping they finally say the things they should have said soon after the break- up.

Why is that when we finally stop holding on to a beacon of hope for them to call or take us back that they finally contact us? 

Why is it that this seems to only occur during a holidays or special occasion? 

Reason #1 - Loneliness
It's the holidays for crying out loud. This usually  involves family, friends, and that special someone.
A lot of men tend to put love on the back burner to focus on everything else. However, at some point they hit a day or two where work just isn't enough.

They holidays always display that cliche image of curling up by a fire, roasting …

The Reality of Customer Service

For anyone who has ever worked in customer service, most will agree that your initial perception of people will change and it will change fast. You can easily go from being an outgoing people person to wishing you lived alone in the hills of Yemen
 I have worked in customer service for over six years and while I've enjoyed a lot about the jobs I've had, it has really tested my patience when it came to servicing different types of people.

Types of customer service workers 

-Retail
-Front Desk Associate
-Cashier
-Maid
-Waitress
-Call Representative

Whether your trying to explain that the back room is not the size of the staples center, or getting yelled at because a 35 year old man didn't read a contract he signed two years ago. The stress can make one wonder if it's even worth making below the poverty line to deal with all of this. 

Not only are their different types of workers in customer service, there are different types of customers.

Through the years, I've narrowed them …

How to Critique a Movie (The Right Way)

Every year, cinema graces us with a selection of movies that make us laugh, cry, or annoyed that our boyfriend doesn't sparkle in the sunlight. This blog is more of pet peeve of mine since I love movies. One of the most annoying things I hate is when people are so quick to say why a movie is bad, but they don't have good reason to back it up. While there are some bad movies out there, I personally think it's paramount that one look at all aspects of a movie before judging it.

Have an open mindDon't let your personal feelings for one actor dictate why you don't like the movie Think about everything that goes into a movie i.e. Direction, Costumes, Set design, CGI, Soundtrack Have your own opinion- if you're already hearing bad reviews from the three people that count as "everybody" don't let that decide for you that it's horrible. Decide for yourself You try it! - Find a scene online from the movie and act it out yourself, post it on YouTube and…

How to Survive a Job you Hate

Not always do we instantly land the job of our dreams. Sometimes we have to do a little grunt work until we make it into the executive world or a least a world that doesn't feel like an episode of Roots. Most likely when you started your job things weren't that bad, until one day you found yourself struggling to even get out of bed in the morning. What makes a job go from exciting and bearable to just plain excruciating?
First of all, it's important to realize that you have a job not a career which means this position probably isn't something you plan on doing for the rest of your life, but for now it gets you  by. If you don't plan on having a career (which is perfectly fine) you probably would still like to have a job you can enjoy coming to each day.
How to make the best of the job you have
1. Weigh out the pros and cons: Ask yourself questions such as..  Does it pay my bills? How much has this job taught me? What can I do or benefit at this job that I couldn…
