Therapy: A Personal Maintenance Check

By Jamie Schafer – White Hall, MD

It’s hard to convey to someone why they need something, especially when it’s something that heals internally with difficult to see progress. Therapy has such a negative connotation as is, trying to convince someone it will help often falls on deaf ears before a point can even be made.

Friend issues, anxiety, daddy drama, financial stressors, over-thinking and crazy-double-life ex-boyfriend are just some of the topics I’ve discussed.

New Kid in the Cubicle: Reflections On Entering the Wonky Workforce

By Alexis Cheney – @Alexis-Cheney

I started my first full-time job as a paralegal in the Department of Justice a little more than two months ago. After graduating from college, I spent months anticipating the monumental debut of my professional career. What exact projects would I work on? Who would be my colleagues? What would my office look like? A host of unknowns flickered vaguely in the distance until they blinded me when I walked through the office door on my first day.
