The Quality of a Friend
by Tiffany (originally posted on ariestrash.com)
If there was one bit of advice that my mother gave me when I was younger that has resonated within me for years it’s that you only ever need just one good friend in your life. Just one. And I guess I have lived my life by that rule. Since I was a kid I was always alone. I wasn’t a loner, but I didn’t have many friends. Sure in elementary school I was nice and well acquainted with all of my classmates, but there really were only about six of them that I ever invited to my house for play dates. Those were my good friends. At least as good a friend you can have when you’re eight.

Survival Guide to A Successful Interview
Personally, I’ve never really had trouble with job interviews – I know how to be confident, play to my strengths, and admit to but not be limited by my weaknesses. And when something goes wrong and I don’t get the job, I know exactly what I’ve said (usually it’s what I SHOULDN’T have said) to make that happen. But not everyone is as confident about getting through professional interviews as I am so here’s a quick survival guide to successfully getting through an interview.
Why You Should Take a Gap Year and Explore the World
It’s safe to say that when you’re a kid, your parents told you that you must stay in school, do well and graduate, so that you can go on to a good university and get a college degree. “Education is important!” they said. Well, yes, yes it is. The idea of going to college and furthering your education is great. But having said that, college is not for everyone. I would know. I dropped out of college after my freshman year, and even though I eventually went back (“transferring” to a different school), I can understand those who don’t go to college straight out of high school. To be honest, I wish I took a gap year and actually thought about what I really wanted to do at uni before enrolling and spending a year’s tuition on something that I wasn’t even happy about.
