A whole new blog (don’t you dare close your eyes)

I’m trying something new, so bare with me. I’m not sure how it’s going to turn out.

But I’m trying a new blog. One that’s more stream lined, more focused, more consistant.

It’s called The Twenties Gap (after my posts of the same name) and it’s all about life in your twenties, whatever that may be.

It’s a little bit of pop culture, a little bit of travel, a little bit of journalism, and a lot about life.

I’ve been posting some of my favourite articles from here to the new blog, because I’m proud of this little guy and I don’t want the year I’ve been blogging to go to waste.

That being said, I don’t want the messy articles. The ones I wrote in a hurry. The ones I never planned or the ones I only posted to make up numbers.

I’ll continue to post on this blog for the time being, until my other one is up and running.

But in the meantime, why not check out the first piece of original content I wrote for The Twenties Gap: Things Our Parents Didn’t Have To Worry About (as told through 80s movies). Because nothing says existential crisis like Ferris Bueller.

Thanks for sticking with me through this first year of blogging. Stop by the new blog and say hello some time 🙂

In my opinion, internships are invaluable. The experience you gain will teach you so much more than a lecture ever could. If you have the time – and the funds – to intern, by all means for it.

However, not all internships are created equal. Continue reading

The Twenties Gap (Part II)

A few months ago, I wrote a post called ‘The Twenties Gap’, where I made history and created a new phrase that will come to define our generation. *You can hear the sarcasm, right?

What is the Twenties Gap? Glad you asked!

The Twenties Gap

Ever since, I can’t stop thinking about other ways my teenage self would be severely disappointed in the way things have turned out. So here it is, the second instalment of The Twenties Gap! Continue reading
