Recruitment Season

It never really crossed my mind that recruitment season for new graduate jobs began a whole year in advance. Obviously you can start you search when you actually graduate, but I’ve realized that most people try to start months before so that by the time they graduate they already have a job lined up.

Travel + Anxiety

Someone crouched down crying

I had this intention to write about how good my day was since I spent it with my grandfather. But instead I’m crying and filled with anxiety at 11PM on a Monday night. So I’m going to talk about that instead. If you have anxiety, you understand how it affects you and what triggers it. […]
