Hello! I’m Ariel. It’s great to meet you!

Aside from being crazy enough to start a blog while finishing up my last semester of classes, I’m also a cat mom to a very mouthy Siamese, marketing professional, avid hockey fan, and Southern girl at heart. When I’m not yelling at my cat to get down from the top of my kitchen cabinets or cheering on my Pittsburgh Penguins, you can find me cooking, Netflix-binging, listening to music, writing everything from short stories to case studies, or daydreaming about my next getaway.

This blog was born out of my desire to share the tips and tricks that I’ve learned in the last 3 1/2 years with other girls who are in the same boat. College doesn’t prepare you for the real world, as I’m finding out. When I was learning about different styles of art or how to properly execute a chemistry experiment, I wish I had been learning how to find a job and apartment, how to act in an office environment, and how to live life to the fullest while still paying off student loans.

I hope that with every article you read on here, you learn something that you can apply to your life, either personally or professionally. It’s a crazy, stressful world out there, but together, we can succeed at this thing they call “adulting”.
