The Tuesday after Labor Day is arguably more depressing than every single Monday of the year combined. Not only are we saying goodbye to a precious long weekend, but also summer, BBQs, and white pants.
So rather than mourn the loss of all your semi-vacation joys, why not remember the good times? We’ll take you through all of the stuff we did in our ninth week in the blogosphere as you dream of beaches and sunshine from that cubicle or classroom.
- Michael J Cirino dropped in to give us some thoughts on preventing the freshman 15 and healthy cooking. Don’t call it diet advice, though!
- Diane Melville continued to reveal some secrets to master the toughest part of the scholarship application process: the essay. Check out how to write an amazing personal statement, the second installment in her “How to Write a Winning Scholarship Essay” series.
- If you’re still having trouble getting around that post-Labor Day depression, take some advice from Josie Corichi. She beat post-graduation depression, and you can too.
- Evelyn Ngugi also shared her post-graduation story. Specifically, what she’s (almost) doing to start her job search.
- If you’re also looking for a job and are fairly entrepreneurial, Lee Morris has a solution for you: start a cleaning service!
- I was all over the blog last week, investigating the cost of home brewing, putting movies into debt, interviewing fellow interns, criticizing our society, making cakes filled with rainbows and sunshine, and looking for some cool projects to fund.
- I also came up with some of the wackiest Daily Interest themes possible. Hopefully, they were at least mildly entertaining.
