I came across a blog post that featured a bunch of really fun and creative business cards. Even though this one is really simple, it was one of my favorites! See the rest of them here!

The career fair for the School of Journalism is tomorrow (eeeek!!), which means my newly revised resume will come in handy. Fortunately, I gave it a major facelift over the weekend, and I think it looks pretty darn good. Of course, I had to send it to my mother for a final proofread, and she decided that there were some things I needed to add to it. These included the soccer league I was in at the age of eight, a sports program I did in the 5th grade, and a couple other mediocre accomplishments from my childhood. I kindly explained to her that those things were irrelevant and outdated, and even though I am pretty proud of myself for being president of my 2nd grade class, that is not something I will be including on my resume.
PS. Anyone who has seen the movie Legally Blonde, I am really tempted to have a pink scented resume :)
I don’t know if any of you have noticed this, but I frequently blog about my job and my height. That being said, I have a little anecdote that involves both:
I work at the Smashburger in Boulder, and I love it there. However, this weekend I was asked to cover someone’s shift at the Lafayette location (which I had never been to before). I was ready and willing to do this until one of my coworkers warned me that everything there was tall. What she meant by this was that the register there is taller, the counters are taller, and basically I would not be able to properly function there. At my Smashburger location, my boss (he hates being called “boss”) has kindly provided me with a stool at the expo window so I can see over the counter (it is a rather tall counter). Seeing as how I did not want to embarrass and/or draw attention to myself by bringing the stool with me to Lafayette, I chose to just avoid covering that shift altogether. This may seem like an insignificant story, but I do have a point. Although I may not seem THAT short, sometimes the lack of a those couple extra inches can really be a burden.
