Road Tripping

By Sponsored Content

June 14, 2018

For a long time now, my friends and I have been hoping to someday take a big road trip. This is a dream that goes all the way back to before we could even legally drive! And now, I think, we’re finally on the verge of actually doing it. We have some money saved up, and we’re no longer battling with our parents over the idea, so I think this is going to happen.Only, we don’t really have a plan! So I’m asking the experts...

Options for Adult Learners

June 14, 2018

I could use some extra insight when it comes to career development. I just graduated with a degree in anthropology. My minor concentration was psychology. My original plan was to go to grad school, since I’m still fascinated by human behavior. However, that may not happen now. My mom just revealed that my younger sister struggles with prescription pills. According to her, it’s been going on for over six months now. I couldn...

Arrangements for Rejoicing in Romance

June 14, 2018

My boyfriend and I are celebrating our 1-year anniversary together. Yay! I want to get him a gift, and I want to keep it small (because we live in dorms) but tasteful. I’ve looked through all sorts of ideas, but I want something out-of-the-ordinary that would make a good anniversary gift. Any suggestions? Anniversary gifts can be tricky, especially for a first anniversary. As a college student, whole taxonomies of gifts won’t...

Entrance into the Cannabis Industry

By Sponsored Content

June 14, 2018

I have a chronic medical condition that is currently being successfully treated with medical cannabis. Although this may seem cool, it has been an inconvenience, given where I go to school. Additionally, I have had some issues in my dorm. I understand that, eventually, I will have to move to another state. Nevertheless, my condition and what I am learning in college are inspiring me to get into the cannabis industry. What parts of t...

The Rise of STEM

June 6, 2018

I could use some guidance. I'm a recent college graduate with a degree in computer science, but I’m struggling with my career options. Most of the recruiters that came to our campus clearly preferred hiring skilled developers. I learned to write Microsoft SQL code while taking my core classes, but I’m not all that thrilled about starting a career exclusively working with databases. I’d much rather collaborate with people an...

Smartphones and Summer Trips

By Sponsored Content

June 6, 2018

I’m planning a trip with some of my friends here. We’re going to go to New York City this summer! It’s going to be mostly about sightseeing. And that’s why I’m considering a drastic proposal: I think we should all put away our smartphones during the trip. Obviously, there would be an exception for emergencies and stuff like that. But I think this would be a good way to avoid having everyone stare at their phones instead ...

Protecting Your Investments

June 6, 2018

Growing up, my family never had a whole lot of money. I’ve been lucky, though, to have had a lot of opportunities. I’m graduating soon, and I’ll be taking a job that pays pretty well, with the chance to have a career that should help me be pretty comfortable. But, in some ways, I feel like I can’t shake the sense that I need to be super careful with money. Maybe that will change as I earn and save more, but I’m ...

Limiting Your Environmental Impact

By Sponsored Content

June 6, 2018

As an American, I’m disturbed by how much of an impact we make on our environment. Our excessive consumption is taking a serious toll on our planet, and we’re showing very few signs of doing anything about it. I’m happy to see our school and my fellow students recycling, but with the way that Americans buy gas-guzzling cars and big homes, I don’t see how we can keep going this way much longer without wrecking our planet be...

Looking Better Sooner

June 6, 2018

I’m sick of being fat. I’ve been overweight for pretty much my whole life, and enough is enough! I want to lose weight, and I want to lose it fast. I know, I know--I’m not supposed to lose weight too fast. I’m supposed to lose it slowly and make long-term changes and blah, blah blah. But that’s not going to work for me, because I need to see results in order to stay motivated. And I’m tired of being told that it’s po...

Shaky Existence!

June 6, 2018

Lately, I have been suffering from the shakes. This is becoming an issue as I am unable to concentrate in class or at work. Initially, I thought it was just the jitters from too much coffee. However, I cut coffee altogether, and the problem has not gone away. My doctor can’t seem to find a cause and says it may be something called essential or clinical tremors. What treatment options are there? Tremors and shaking can be caused...

Do I Reconsider Renting a Renovated Residency?

By Sponsored Content

June 6, 2018

I’m moving out of the dorms into a house with some friends. It’s my first lease, my first roommates I’ve chosen on my own: all the good stuff. But now I’ve learned that my landlord wants to remodel our kitchen. I’m ok with throwing out our old 90s stove and getting rid of a creaky, leaky fridge, but we’re talking about new cabinets and ripped-out plumbing. I learned this before I have signed the lease, which is a good ...

Choosing a Career: Going Forward and Giving Back

By Sponsored Content

June 6, 2018

I’m graduating this December, which is huge for me. It’s something I never thought was going to happen. I have Asperger’s, and school, well, let’s just say that this isn’t the place I thought I’d be even two years ago. I’m high-functioning, but anyone who meets me can tell that I’m not neurotypical. I’ve learned to live with it. In fact I’ve learned to love it. I’m pretty proud of who I am and what I’ve don...
