I feel like I spend a lot of time letting interns know what they ought to be doing. However, most of these strategies are in direct response to an alternative that loses money. I was having a great chat with a fabulous colleague about money-losing strategies yesterday over lunch. That wonderful chat inspired me to write a blog on the topic.
We have entered into the second half of Summer and the heat is still on. With triple-digit temperatures within reach each day, it seems like the only options for staying cool are to stay indoors in front of the air conditioner. But why get stuck inside when you can enjoy the sun while staying cool?

“Life is like a golf course, and a sand trap runs through it” is quintessential Charles Schultz. The cartoon creator who gave us Snoopy and the ensemble of peanut-sized characters that we all grew to love often alluded to these life lows in his popular comic strip. You can mope, cry or scream at others like Lucy Van Pelt but at the end of the day the only person who can dig you out of the rut is yourself.
There is a reason that the month of August was named Sextilis in ancient times, and we at Single Edition are all for having fun in the sun. But before you venture outdoors, you should consider these dangers that go beyond getting a little sunburn where the sun usually doesn’t shine:
This summer heat up your attraction
I never thought I'd be facing 40 and be single...I mean, really, who does? I figured I'd marry at 23 and pop out two or three kids before 30. My toughest decision of the day would be whether to take the minivan to the Girl Scout meeting or participate in the neighborhood carpool. That's not exactly the path I've taken--or the cards I've been dealt. (Insert whatever cliche is appropriate here.) I've dated guys. In fact, I've dated guys long term. I'm not talking months long term--I'm talking years. Years of agonizing. Waiting. Weeping. Well, you get the drift. So, here I am. I turned 39 last week and have been out on countless dates. First dates, second dates, third dates...yet, nothing has clicked. So, I figured I'd write about it. Not in a mean way, because, god knows, I can get pretty mean. But, in a thoughtful, maybe even funny way. (Disclaimer: I know I'll get mean, I'm just trying really hard to be positive. Hmmm...maybe herein lies the problem?) So, here's to a new year. A new hobby. A new positive attitude. Or, maybe not. (And WHY is there no option for an image of a cat and an empty tub of Ben and Jerry's?)
People l says On-line dating is the best ways to get a real love this days but i don't believe that so i want some one to proof me wrong because i am seriously in need of a real love and a sweet baby to take care of all the time and rock to bed all night.
Note: As always, you can follow my journey on my personal blog, So about what I said... If you’ve been following my self-induced saga over Crush Boy, you probably think I’m so sort of looney love-struck teenager. If you haven’t been privy to this story, allow me to catch you up… Cliff Notes: Been in love, from afar of course, with Crush Boy for 13+ years, wrote things in my diary like "I can see myself spending the rest of my life with him" and "I KNOW he's my soulmate......" blah, blah, blah. Could never work up the courage to pour my feelings at his feet. Finally got to a point where I was pretty sure nothing would ever happen between us (It's a complicated situation, too). I see him one day over the weekend. He sees me. Me very confused AGAIN. I am 28, right? And I am a full-grown woman with a job AND a college degree, right?
I went out on my first date with this guy that I connected with via Match.comon Friday night. It was one of the best dates that I've been on in a long time. We went to dinner at Olive Garden and we talked and talked. We laughed. The conversation was good. We went bowling and we laughed. He seems to be an interesting character. The late night walk around the park was a romantic way to cap off the night. I truly enjoyed my time with him. He wanted to come home with m, but of course, I wouldn't allow that to happen. I'm not bringing any man into my space until I'm confident he is going to be around for awhile. None of these fly by night, game playing, men. I don't think he was like that, but a man will be a man. I don't know when I will get to see him again because we live an hour apart, and both of us have extremely busy lives,but I like that. I don't have to worry about being pressured to see him again soon. I'm hoping for absence to keep him interested.
