Step aside, Jennifer Aniston. Point that twerk in another direction, Miley Cyrus. There’s a new star in town, and her name is BSchoolGirl! Continue reading
Congrats, you’ve been accepted to business school! Perhaps some well-meaning individual told you that getting in was the hardest part, and the next two years will be one constant stream of happy hours and tailgates. I’m not calling that person a liar, but, uh… No, wait. I’m calling that person a liar.
It’s not just the lack of sleep, the inability to talk without using phrases like “economies of scale” and “market segmentation,” or that nagging sense of inadequacy. The hardest part of business school is the constant pressure to get the interview, the internship, and the job offer for THE CAREER OF YOUR DREAMS! Ideally, said career satisfies your deepest yearnings for meaning and fulfillment along with a great salary, handsome signing bonus and glorious perks. No sweat, right? Continue reading
If I appear to have fallen off the face of the earth over the past few weeks, I have. Or rather, I started business school and suddenly have a lot less time than I used to. Fancy that.
Luckily I got a great email from BSchool Admit that knocked me back into the real world for a minute. She asked for some networking advice to help during the application process, and was nice enough to share my response on her blog. Head on over to Networking 101 for some tips and tricks of the trade. I am happy to answer any other questions via email.
In the meantime, it’s back to the books for me. Happy holiday weekend!
Happy Almost-Fourth! I hope you are celebrating with barbeque and beer, rather than frantically shoving things in boxes, scrubbing your bathroom, and trying to remember where you packed your clean underwear. Hey, did I mention that I’m moving this weekend?
Planning a cross-state move is not exactly conducive to a relaxed state of mind, so I have been treating my stress with a heavy dose of retail therapy. I mean, what girl could resist using business school as an excuse to update her wardrobe? Certainly not this one. So imagine my delight when I got a request to blog about that very topic. (Thanks Kristina!)
I was wondering about Orientation outfits. My orientation, like most, is business-casual.
I was hoping you could do a post about what you’re planning on wearing, what’s appropriate and what’s not, and highlight how to dress business-casual in the heat! Continue reading
Whoops, is it Wednesday again? I majorly procrastinated on today’s blog post. Actually, I won’t call it procrastinating because I believe it was justified by the number of other things I had to get done, like listing my furniture on Craigslist, doing laundry for the first time in two weeks, and watching the House Hunters International marathon on HGTV.

Looking for an apartment in a new city? Have I got a game plan for you. Continue reading
A few months ago, when I first knew I was moving to LA, I asked everyone I knew for suggestions on where to live. For some reason this is a really exciting topic for people, maybe because deep down everyone just wants to feel like they know more than others. But eventually I stopped asking (that didn’t stop the advice from coming), because I realized something important: People give terrible advice. Continue reading
