  • HOLY MOLY PEOPLE!

    Just a quick check in. Yes, still in sunny California along with 987 BILLION other people. I do not know where all these people have come from!! I feel like all I’ve done is park on the freeway.

  • Careers For The Big Thinkers Out There

    Picture Source Finding the perfect career is no easy task. It depends on your personality and your talents. Someone could be technologically-gifted, for instance, but find that certain IT roles don’t appeal to them because they have a social personality and need human interaction. It’s important to weigh up both your characteristics and your skills if you want a satisfying job. You can’t truly enjoy your career if it only benefits you in terms of your academic abilities; you’ll always feel as if something is missing.
