Base on the last few interviews I’ve gone through, my interview experiences have been very interesting to say the least. Continue reading “Hustling In Southern California’s Job Market.”

As I wind down to the last few months I have left in Europe, I realised how much I’ve seen over the year I’ve been living here in Milan. I’m glad I’ve had the chance to share it on this blog because reflecting back to these memories have made me realise how much I’ve seen, done and I can’t believe it’s already been a year. Time sure moves fast! Continue reading “My Favorite Spots in Milan”
I moved. The apartment I’ve been living in for a year in Milan was something I found on the internet through a housing agency while I was still in L.A.

If I was given a magical power, I would be a superwoman. Lately, my school schedule has been intense. Between my courses and group projects, we also have conferences leaving little time for anything.

I’ve been up since 5-ish hoping that I would arrive at the Secretary of State building in downtown L.A. by 8am. You may wonder why I’m up so early or why I’m even doing this? Remember that Declaration of Value document I mentioned a few weeks ago? Well, my dear, this is all part of that process. Indeed, the document has become a Declaration of Pain. Excuse my bitterness.
