June Reads

In an attempt to keep content rolling out more often – and also to give you booklovers posts that are especially for you! – I'm going to talk about the books I've read each month separately from my monthly favorites.

Back in January, I resolved to read 12 books this year. So far, I've been reading at nearly double the pace, which has been a pleasant surprise.


First Job, First Year: What I've Learned

A friend texted me the other day, "It's been a hot minute since you made a blog post. Can your fans be expecting one soon?" First of all, fans? What a flattering way to describe the likely small handful of people who read this. But it HAS been a hot minute, hasn't it?

I'm chalking it up to busy days at work again, which is actually exactly what I want to talk about. I started my job two weeks after graduating college and have somehow already been here for an entire year. Over that time, I've learned a thing or two, and I hope sharing them will help some of the newbies out there.

On Post-Grad Friendships

"I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them."

Andy Bernard said this in "The Office." I have the quote framed in my living room. I wish there was a way, too.
