We followed my basic Sin City Survival Tips and boy did we “survive” …but now it’s back to school and with less than 5 weeks until graduation I’m busier than ever! Anyone have tips for prioritizing and organizing your life? –something that I am admittedly terrible at. One thing that does help me keep my life from imploding is this fab agenda. Originally the “Mom Agenda” they have recently come out with a version for us non-maternal individuals that’s equally as genius.

Newsflash: Not only is renovating your resume tedious, it’s boring, daunting, and seemingly never-ending.  So here are some tips that I’ve found useful for writing in general, especially for my resume, courtesy of my good friend Ernest Hemingway…

Also, I’m working on creating an independent online portfolio for my art and copy work, but so far all of the options I’ve seen are about as unique and interesting as a ham sandwich. Anyone have tips on how to make an attractive and effective online portfolio?
