selling stuff I never want to see again

Need cash? Sell your used books to for top dollar. Free shipping!

I paid so much for my books this semester! I hate seeing my money going away for these necessities that ultimately become pillows when I fall asleep on them- and they are way too hard. The worst thing that happened though is that I brought all my text books back to school to sell them to incoming freshman and now the professors are requiring new editions so no one would buy them! Thanks a lot! I put them on eCampus and apparently some other schools are still behind the times because they sold- for less than I paid, but whatever.. now I can look at my new sweater instead of my calculus book.

Cubicle fever

So I have been working for a month and a half now and I am starting to get the hang of it. Sadly, as this is an internship, once you get the hang of it, you know it's almost time to leave. I have made some pals out of the coworkers and some contacts out of the bossmen. Plus, I saw how much drinking and golfing I can look forward to if I become a lawyer... and a man I guess.
Some tips I have gathered from this experience:
1. Dress impeccably the first day, but then start to blend with what everyone else is wearing. You want to look like you are eager to do the work, but not like you still have the energy to spend too much time on hair and makeup. Plus, you can't tip the balance of the office with your out of norm dress code.
2. Make friends with the receptionist. She/he knows everyone and everything and is generally the most amiable personality. Plus, if you are on good terms, then you can get all the best tips.
3. Know how to make good coffee before you even set foot in the office. Just trust me on this one.
4. Dont eat to many of the office snacks. This one is just for the benefit of your waste line, but also, the more you are seen snacking, the less it looks like you are working
5. If you don't know how to do something, ask and clarify. Its always better than doing something wrong. On the other hand, if its something that doesn't matter if you get it slightly wrong, go for it on your own rather than bothering the boss with trivialities. Furthermore, you should ask different people every time you need to be shown how to do something unless you can zone in on someone who really loves to help and knows what s/he's doing because that way you are spreading the annoyance around thinly.
6 Answering phones sucks. try to learn everyone's names and give a sparkly "good morning" unless of course it's the afternoon.

oop. it's 10:55, time to clock out and say it's 11.

Work to support that Beach Habit

Beach Cities on Sale! Fly Round-Trip From $126+ from American Airlines! Offer ends 6/23!

I am a working girl right now and quite exhausted. Can't wait for the trip my lovely friends and I are planning for August before we head back to school. Some of the money I am earning right now is going to pay for travel expenses (I was hoping the pina coladas would pay for themselves, but with these deals, maybe I could swing a funfund) Can't wait!

Factory-Direct Promotional Products at Get lower prices, faster production time, and amazing service.
When you're picking your poison, you always need a place to pour it... I think this website is great for gifts and especially college students who like to buy cheap and throw things out at the end of the year (if it hasn't been shattered by then) The glassware on this website is so very cheap.

World Cup Tickets

I finally got a job, which was something that I really wanted. Sadly, that means I can't go to the World Cup (Soccer or football for those of you who don't know, but I guess if you know it as football you must know) anyway... I thought it was impossible to get tickets, but my parents ended up going without me last time because while they were in Germany they just asked their bellboy jokingly if he had any tickets... and then it turned out that he "knew a guy". go figure. So, I guess if you want to be better prepared...

Plan C

So... summer goal is to learn chinese. I decided this just now because I am starting to get freaked out about our economy. I am reading this book called The Wealth and Poverty of Nations and it summarizes a lot of the risings and fallings of different great kingdoms, empires, nations etc. It seems way too easy and too fickle. So yeah... Chinese= backup plan. And hey, if the world continues to go on as it is now... then atleast I can barter better when I travel through China and I can make sure I get the honest opinion of waiters at Chinese restaurants.
