It’s okay to take a couple of extra napkins, sweeteners, plastic utensils, etc. from a fast food place to stock up your own kitchen.
But it’s probably not okay to steal toilet paper from restaurant bathrooms.
Almost never take PTO for something that doesn’t make you happy. Seriously, taking precious time off to get a cavity filled or to clean your house is not a good use of time.
Savings accounts are what dreams are made of.
Stop opening credit cards you can’t pay off and start saving and collecting interest.
Travel or do SOMETHING that breaks up the monotony.
I know not everyone likes to travel, but don’t be afraid to throw some money at fun activities that will make the work week a little easier.
Take full advantage of whatever your parents offer you.
Never say no. Do I want to take home some of the banana bread you’re making? Yupp. If grandma wants to give me $20, am I gonna say no? Nope.
Speaking of parents, don’t feel rushed to move out.
I thought all I needed in life was to move out, but life at home is a lot easier and a lot cheaper. Really all I need in life is my mom.
Don’t take it too seriously. A job is a job, it is not your whole entire life. Make happiness a priority. If you really sit and put things into perspective, think about all the things you can accomplish and all the things to see, you don’t have to stress hard about anything that is not adding anything to your life.
I graduated from Rowan University in 2015! I majored in Advertising, minored in Journalism, and concentrated in New Media. I am a social media enthusiast and am especially passionate about Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. When I'm not scrolling through pictures of pugs, pinning vegetarian recipes, or trying to be funny in 140 characters or less; I'm the Communications Specialist at a non profit! Did you guys know you can't make a career out of complaining about your life and tagging people in pictures of sloths?
