Girl Gangs: Who are they for, and do I need one?

My usual laid-back Sundays are now days of work, not rest. That means I have to do a whole day’s worthy of relaxing after I clock out. At this time of year, that means the sky is a sort of sleepy blue that makes me strain my eyes in my refusal to turn on the light.

Tonight is the night of the SAG awards, so instead of digging into something too deep, I’m going for a short passage from “How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits.”

I turned to something randomly, then turned again because I had already read that section. What did I land on? Girl Gangs. Actually, Girls Gang (but I like Girl Gangs).

The final lines goes, “Without her girls gang, the Parisienne is incomplete.”

It got me thinking, what is a Girl Gang, and do I need one?

And after participating in the Women’s March: Do I really need a special gang of girls? Can all women be for all women, all the time?

The #1 Mistake Made During Your Job Search

We’re all pretty familiar with job searching and, to be honest, it can be a pretty painful process. I wrote an article for Looksharp about the #1 mistake you make during your job search–and what to do instead. I’ve linked it below if you’re interested!

Show Me Some Love? Latest Published Article!

Howdy, ya’ll.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted (tsk tsk, I know), but I promise you that nice things will be coming this way. Just gotta get some good vibes flowing through my head space now that midterms are over (my last college midterms, people!).

I’m working on a haul post that will be up very shortly, but until then please enjoy my latest published article over on the InternMatch website. I’m very excited about my contributions thus far to their blog. It is a great tool for finding jobs and internships for college students and recent grads. But if you aren’t in search of a job, you can enjoy their helpful articles ranging from interview tips to intern horror stories.

My latest article, “Stop Comparing Yourself to Everybody Else,” is now live on their site, and I would love it if you would take a look, thumbs it up, leave a comment, or even Tweet it, should you wish to go so far.

Love you all and appreciate your support!

My Second Published Article!

Hey guys! Thanks so much for your support on my first InternMatch article (it can be found here, I would love if you’d check it out and drop a comment!) My SECOND ARTICLE is now published on the InternMatch blog and I’m super excited about it! It’s titled, “Why Michelle Obama is Right About Studying Abroad.” After studying abroad twice, this was an article I needed to write.

Study Abroad

If you have time, I would love if you could click this link to check out my article, and leave a comment if you have the time. Writing the article is half the battle, getting people to read it is the other half! Every view helps spread the word about my writing.

Thanks for being such a supportive blogging community!

Ciao,

Why I Put Myself Before My Career

A bit of shameless self promotion never hurt anyone, right?

I’m really proud to announce that my first article for InternMatch is now live on their site!

I wrote about how I turned down the opportunity for a job promotion because I don’t stand for the same principles as the company. Sometimes you gotta be true to who you are and put your morals before career opportunities! Read the full article here to get the full scoop.

InternMatch is a great place for us college students and recent grads to find internships and entry level jobs. You can sort by area of interest, location, pay/school credit, and more. Take a look! (This isn’t a paid promo, I use their site as my primary internship search engine which is how I landed my gig writing for them!)

And I would love if you would take the time to go read my article and comment on it there. Include “ciao” in your comment if this post sent you 😉

Graziiiiiii,

Ashley
