Dave’s Diary: Routines, Moodiness, and the Job Search

Dave's Diary

A routine is one of those things in life that can be either a huge relief or a giant burden.  I know that I tend to oscillate between those two feelings, generally dependant on whether or not I have an established routine in my life at the time.  I think that for the most part, we’re creatures of habit.

Dave’s Diary: University, or Masquerade Ball?

Career Exploration

We’ve been talking about it at work in regards to job interviews, but it’s clear that the construct applies to a lot more than just that.  But it’s a slippery thing to try to define.  When applied to people, the best we can really do is provide a list of near-synonyms: genuine, real, veritable.  None of which are all that helpful.

International Co-op

We took the metro to North Kolkata to discover a part of the city we have not visited yet. Without a planned route, we walked south in the diction of home. Approximately every 5 blocks we would find a pandal to vist. One such pandal blew all of us away.

Dave’s Diary: Don’t Throw A Fit!

Series

How many times and how many ways have you heard the word “fit” thrown around? I don’t know if a three letter word has ever had such wide ranging implications.  Grammatically speaking, it’s an adjective, a verb, and a noun.  Generally speaking, though, I’m pretty confident we can think of “fit” as referring to the compatibility of one thing with another.
