If you start a new job, would you insist on using Gmail when you’re asked to use Outlook?

The Best Flat-Tummy Breakfast

My breakfasts needs are pretty simple. Prep-less as I stumble around my kitchen before the sun rises searching through half-opened eyelids for coffee. Portable to bring to work with me, since I eat it after my morning workout. Sweet. I love starting (and ending) my day with something sweet.

Avoiding the “Girlfriend 15” – So You’re Committed

The first thought that went through my mind when I woke up one morning as someone new’s girlfriend was, holy cr*p. I was thrilled, petrified, and everything in between. I had committed to someone who was more than I could wish for. But I had also been very hurt recently in the past. The first time I was someone’s girlfriend was in preschool. But, I’m pretty sure I didn’t get asked a formal commitment question. The second time was in the sixth grade. His name was Matt and our friend groups had decided we were the perfect match. I think we may have said ten words to each other over the duration of our “relationship,” and over half of them Read More
