Sleep and Snoring

By Sponsored Content

March 8, 2018

Ever since I came to school this year, I haven’t been getting enough sleep. My roommate snores, my room is too cold, and I just find myself staring at the ceiling feeling like I’m losing my mind! This didn’t happen to me in years past, and I’m worried about how it might affect my grades as I get closer to graduation and getting a job. Experts, what can I do about this? My sleep schedule is a complete disaster, and...

Don’t Deny The Danger

March 8, 2018

My roommate and I watch the nightly news during dinner at least three or four days a week. It’s a lot easier than having to hunt down articles online. This past week there were at least three different stories about local opioid overdoses. My roommate said that she sees a lot written about it online, too. I remember my dad talking about people taking too many prescription painkillers over the holidays. I hadn’t put t...

Dare I Do It?

March 8, 2018

I could use some advice weighing my options. I’m a college senior graduating this coming May with a degree in philosophy. I’ve really enjoyed my undergrad experience and my studies, but I’m struggling with what I should be doing next. Most of my job applications have been rejected. The only job offer I have is for an entry-level writing position at a local ad agency. I can’t say I’m opposed to the idea, but it defin...

Sleepless Nights

I’m having a very tough time here at school lately, and I think I know why--I’m not getting enough sleep. All my life, I’ve needed a good amount of sleep to stay cheerful and productive. But, lately, I’m barely sleeping at all. I’m not sure what the problem is. I lie awake stressing about things, my room feels too hot, my bed isn’t comfortable, and I take too long to go to sleep. I then find it hard to get out o...

Odds And Objectives

My roommate needs a second opinion. She has an older brother who’s been struggling to lead what people would consider a normal life. He barely finished high school and dropped out of his community college after the first year. As a result, he’s never had a stable job. The family has tried multiple times to intervene and try to help, but he’s pretty resistant. Apparently, while my roommate was at home over the holidays, her...

Convincing Case for SRI

I could use help making a convincing investment argument to my dad, who is a lifelong investor. I’m currently studying environmental science and have a job lined up after graduation with the Environmental Protection Agency, so you could say I’m a die-hard outdoors enthusiast. For my upcoming birthday in March, I’m trying to convince my dad to make some investments on my behalf.The problem is that I just recently learned abou...

Space-Age Stock Investing

March 8, 2018

I know that people can make tons of money on the stock market, but I don’t really understand how that can be. It seems so hard to predict what the market is going to do, and so many people get it wrong. How can expert investors keep making money over time? Isn’t every day a huge risk for them? I can understand how someone might make some money quickly in the stock market, but the fact that companies and professionals ...

Finding a Gift for Your Spouse

If you love giving gifts, then finding the right gift for friends and family is extremely important to you. As far as you’re concerned, a gift basket won’t do, and you’d never give your spouse a pair of pants. Big or small, a birthday or once-in-a-life occasion, gifts need to be just right. When it comes to finding the right gift for your spouse, however, things can get tricky. Shopping for a partner can be stressful, so fi...

What is User Experience Design?

March 8, 2018

My big brother is a smart guy, and he recently got a new job that he’s super excited about. It’s a job in “UX design,” and he says it’s going to combine computer and design work in a way that will keep things really interesting for him. I’m thrilled that my big brother is getting a good job, and I’ve been nodding along when he mentions it, but I have to admit something: I have absolutely no idea what “UX” s...

American Vacation Habits

March 8, 2018

Every year since I was a child, I would go on a vacation with my family. When I got to school, I was kind of surprised to learn how many of my friends didn’t have this experience. I feel very lucky that I got to go on vacation so regularly--I wish everyone did. But one thing I found kind of curious was that many of the people I spoke to said their family had plenty of money for vacations--they just chose not to go on them!...

Counseling Career Path

March 8, 2018

I need a second opinion. I’m a senior getting ready to graduate this May, with a degree in elementary education. I have a few possible job opportunities lined up after graduation, but none of them are ideal. For instance, one role for which I was invited to an interview was a junior daycare manager. They invited me because I had two successful internships with them. I wouldn’t necessarily mind the income, but I’d rath...
