This was great. Would you mind explaining a bit about why you don't like the term food deserts? (I did a research project on this in undergrad and these issues are what I'd like to eventually end up working on/going back to school for...)
We played pool and got drunk, while Wendy made friends with a rancher named Curtis. We drove back slowly in the pitch black, thankful to collapse in our tent, grateful that we made it back alive. Grateful to be alive? Grateful not to have killed anyone else? I'm sorry - for me, this ruined what was otherwise a wonderful essay. Driving drunk is a big deal; it shouldn't be glamorized as part of your youthful road trip narrative.
Mike Dang gives really lovely advice.
@WayDownSouth Don't worry. You definitely did not understand the article correctly.
@echolikebells I feel like everyone talks about how important it is, but it's not something that was ever really discussed in a nuts-and-bolts way when I was in school (at least not in my majors - the business school on the other hand...).
I would looove a post about networking. How Do You Do It. Because I really don't know.
I loved this! (When I studied abroad in college, I was lucky enough to travel a bit with a friend who had pretty similar interests/was fairly low key about what we should do. We ended up spending about two hours taking a nap in a park because we were sleepy and didn't want to spend any more money. It was wonderful.) Excited to read the post-trip report.
On Office Games
@EvanDeSimone Yeah I feel this. Some nice creamer! Fair (and generous?) vacation and sick leave policies. The occasional work-provided lunch. I interned at a place in college that had work happy hours in the office every other Friday - who wouldn't like some snacks and a beer/fancy juice paid for by the job? It's the little things.
@WriteBikeBobbi How can they switch it from 10 years to 25 years without your permission, let alone without notifying you at all?!
