Long time no see, Ramblers!
I took a much needed week off, sunning it up in Jamaica with the Gannett family. It was absolutely breathtaking and 100% needed to get me back in the right mindset to tackle Spring head on.
Springtime is one of my favorite times of the year. In the corporate world, we’re wrapping up Quarter One, and in the school world, the spring semester is coming to a finale. It’s time for that final push before summer, a rebirth so-to-speak of your best you. And “Spring Cleaning” can mean much more than revitalizing your closest! As you blossom alongside the flowers and embrace the warmer days to come, spring is the perfect time to declutter your life.

Hey, hey, hey Ramblers! Hope you are all doing well! I don’t know about you guys, but it is finally starting to warm up in Montréal. We are finally seeing some positive C temperatures and sun! I am so excited for Spring and Summer, but before I can go out and have fun, I, unfortunately, have A TON of papers, presentations, and one final exam! Besides a lot of coffee, one thing that I am going to utilize in order to get everything done is to effectively use my strengths and personality type.

Welcome Ramblers! I hope you guys enjoyed our Tarot and Horoscope Podcast last night because we had a lot of fun making it! Even though we don’t base our lives on neither Tarot nor horoscopes, we do think they are very fun to participate in! I also enjoy using Tarot as a way to meditate and I really appreciate how pretty Tarot card designs can be. Anyways, since Bailey talked about the history of horoscopes earlier this week, I figured I would research the history of Tarot and share it with you all!

Are you a Virgo? Pisces? Or maybe a stubborn Taurus like myself? No matter what you are, I think we can all agree that there is a bit of guilty pleasure in reading your horoscope to find out more about “you.” I think majority of people are somewhat narcissistic in the sense that we all love to hear about ourselves, talk about ourselves, and see ourselves. Hence, the Instagram culture, selfie obsession, and endless Buzzfeed quizzes telling you what type of cupcake you are.
Horoscopes fall into this category of self-interest, but I often feel they get a bad reputation that’s not deserved! Today we’re going to debunk whether horoscopes are real or fake, and the history behind them.

Happy Spring Break time, Ramblers!
I hope you all had a great Spring Break or will have an amazing Spring Break! Since many people take this time off to travel, I figured I would give some tips for traveling alone as well as some tips for spending the least amount of money as possible if you are on a tight budget!

I am SO happy it’s March and I’m so happy that I’m finally feeling recovered from wisdom teeth surgery. The biggest thing I’m looking forward to in March is Spring Break in Jamaica with my family. I feel super fortunate to be able to go on this trip, and I didn’t think “spring break” would be an option when I graduated college.
I think taking trips and time for yourself is super important for recharging and making sure you can actually be effective in the rest of your life. Obviously, I recognize that the ability and privilege to take trips isn’t one that is afforded to all, but even if it’s just a day trip or a stay-cation; it’s important to make the most out of it. I’ve gathered up my best trip planning trips for you all, and I hope it makes your Spring Break A+!

Hello Ramblers! I hope you guys are having a great week! I am having such a fun week as it is my Spring Break and I have been road tripping around Vermont and skiing. Anyways, if you’ve read Bailey’s blog and listened to the podcast, then you probably noticed the reoccurring theme of friendship. One of the big things we mentioned about friendships is how hard it is to make new friends as young adults, especially after college.

It’s been a crazy day already. I recently got all four of my wisdom teeth removed a few days ago, so work and my organizations that I’m a part of have really been piling up. So, I hope that you are having a better Monday than me. Anyways, this week’s theme is all around the importance of friendship, and the vital role that plays in a 20-something’s point in life.
