4 Life Hacks For A More Productive Day

We’ve all had those days, when the hours become longer than your child’s ballet recital. Whether it’s when you drag your butt in from a long weekend on a Monday or you are anxiously waiting for that 5pm bell on a Friday afternoon. While I can’t help you shorten your time (I am still waiting for a time machine to be built), I can give you some life hacks that can help you be a bit more productive during the day, that can help time fly by.

It always seems that when you keep yourself busy and productive during the day, the time goes by quicker and your closing time comes faster than you thought. So setting yourself up for a productive work station can help you get into the zone and get shit done. Read More

Oakland Athletics Pride Night 2015

This is what sports are all about. Thank you for taking a stand and bringing more kindness into the world Eireann.

Thank You Based Ball

My A's family

UPDATE ON 3/30/15: 

Thank you all for supporting this effort. Since posting this, the response has been (unsurprisingly) overwhelmingly positive. Many have offered to donate their tickets for this effort, and others have offered to donate money to buy tickets. My boyfriend, Oakland A’s pitcher Sean Doolittle, has agreed to match any tickets I purchase. And we also started a GoFundMe account to collect donations to fill the stands at this game. You can donate here. Sean and I will match donations up to $3000. We will use the donations to buy tickets to the 6/17 Pride Night game and donate them to Our Space LGBTQI Community Center for teens and young adults. Thank you in advance for your generosity! 

As some of you know, the Oakland Athletics will be hosting their first LGBT Pride Night on June 17.  Hopefully this will be the first of many such A’s events. You…

My Worst Advice: Being Down In The Dumps

\down in the dumpsWhen you are feeling lonely, frustrated, angry, sad, worthless, agitated, depressed, or any other negative feeling that you just can’t seem to shake…it will probably get worse before it gets better.

The reality of life is that sometimes we will like there is no digging out of the great hole that seems to be getting deeper and deeper everyday. But that is all part of challenging yourself, growing into a stronger person, and gaining experience in life. Read More

It Really Grinds My Gears When…

…people don’t understand personal blogs and the importance of them to some people.

I was recently chatting with someone about blogging and how I have this blog that I work on and try to inspire other people with good deeds and fun thoughts and ideas. Now I’m not normally one to bash or write about negative things, but this really bothered me. Read More

My Worst Advice: How To Get The Job!

Hello all you lovely smiling faces!

Today, my guest post on My Worst Advice is all about getting a job! I say this because as a recent graduate, and having landed myself somehow in two jobs, I have a thing or two to share about this! Please note before I begin my tale that I am not licensed to give any advice. I’m not a therapist, nor a professional job helper-getter. I am simply a 24 year old who has gotten herself two jobs. So, brace yourself kids because here we go!

Here’s my worst advice for finding a job:

• If you’re about to graduate college, start looking for jobs early! Chances are there won’t be a ton available, but it never hurts to make some phone calls and meet some faces. If you’re graduating in May, and you start looking for jobs in March, you may find that jobs are scarcer than wine after I go to Target! I give you this nugget from experience. I didn’t have a big person job after graduating college, I was a nanny for a couple months after graduation. This is okay as well, because a job is better than no job! Looking back, I wish I had started looking earlier. Do as I say, not as I do, children! Read More
