I tried to convert myself working at a gym where protein bars were considered “meals.” But most of the time they just tasted like cardboard with the occasional chocolate chip thrown in to spite you. Clif Bars are the only ones I can tolerate and semi-enjoy. But moral of the...

If I can make it here, I can make it ANYWHERE. I’ve heard it a million times, and it’s absolutely true. Or at least feels like that. At the end of this job-hunting/life-searching/soul-digging experience I swear to God I am going to be so much stronger, tougher and thick-skinned than anything else could teach me. Welcome to New York: get ready to get your ass kicked.

OK I get the going for dramatics thing. But simply turn it off and put it back in your purse. The boss/guy/girl will...
