A millennial’s unsolicited career advice.

A millennial’s unsolicited career advice.

I feel like I give unsolicited advice all the time. Like, something will happen to me and I'm like YO THIS WORKED FOR ME ONE TIME THIS SHOULD BE ADDED TO THE CONSTITUTION OR SOMETHING. Most of the time I don't really know what I'm talking about but I just go with it because I'm [...]

At times I wonder why I left. I ask myself if "exploring" could mean a Southie apartment with friends or "taking a chance" has to mean uprooting the familiar and planting yourself in the unknown. I don't really know the answers to these questions and I don't know if I ever will. I took a [...]

Soggy chicken tenders.

Every time I get a new job, this is usually how conversations go down: Me: I got a new job!!!! Friend: Congrats! Is this job #5? Me: No!!!!! …..number 4. *mumbles* Friend: You cray. Basically, I'm always working. Ask anyone. At this moment, I have a thousands of things going on. There are event emails I need to answer, [...]

“Dear, Beth. I am a fuckboy.”

I got a rather hilarious email from a reader last night. It was a strange combination unexpected and revolting yet charming to some degree? With his permission, he let me talk about it on here. Here's the email: Hey Beth, I've been following your blog for quite a while. My initial to the first post was, [...]

Day 9 without pizza…and I’m not dead?

There are certain things in life we can't live without: food, water, shelter, love...and pizza (ok, maybe not). Food and body image have been topics of many of my blogs recently...once upon a time I even claimed I was going to do paleo for 30 days (only to fail after day 4)...but started for all the [...]

Two sources of evil: fuckboys and alcohol.

"Happy New Year, Beth :)" the text(s) read. Does that happen to anyone else? As soon as Christmas or NYE hits, your inbox suddenly becomes flooded with messages from men you haven't spoken to in months? It's like, ah, I know I fucked up, but it's the holidays! Happy Holidays! Let's forget about everything I've ever [...]

Powerful Women Project: Amanda Nelson

The response I received on this post prompted this project: the Powerful Women Project. At times I feel unsure of the choices I make, the life I'm choosing to live at this point, the guys I choose to spend my time with, etc. I'm supposed to have a corporate job with benefits, a steady relationship, an [...]

My Tuesdays are different than your Tuesdays

My Tuesdays are different than your Tuesdays

I roll out of bed at around 4:30am even after a 1:00am clock out at work a short 3.5 hours prior. My phone lies on my nightstand lit up with Nordstrom Rack emails, Tinder messages, and an option to hit "Sleep." Next step is usually a trip to the bathroom to washthe make up residue from my eyes [...]
