Anyone who really knows me, knows that I love nothing more than reading the newspaper in the morning. I was thinking about the newspaper USA Today the other day. Do you think people that are reporters for USA Today feel good about working there? I don't think anyone really thinks they are a credible news source. I can't think of the last time USA Today broke a great news story. THIS JUST IN! A breaking pictograph from USA Today showing America's unemployment rate! Seriously, the National Enquirer breaks more real news than USA Today and it's not even a legit news source. They report real news by accident sometimes and they still beat out USA Today in the fact category. As an aside, I really like the pictograph above.

Is it really necessary to list Microsoft Word as a qualification on your resume anymore? Should I just list West Deptford Middle School under the education header and have the employer assume that I am not an idiot? Come to think of it though ,I don't even think I could list myself as proficient in Word. I think I use Word maybe once a year. In fact, I don't think I even know how to use Word. I don't think I've ever figured out how to make the margins work the way I want them. I don't really know how to insert a picture where I want it, at the size I want it, and have the text work around it the way I want to either. I definitely know I never figured out how to make a list without bullet points, or figured out how to change the list to be numbers instead of letters without it auto-formatting itself back into bullets at indents that I don't like. Create a graph? Forget about it. I think the only thing I DO know how to do in Word is how to make the font change from Times New Roman to Courier New and change the spacing from 2, to 2.25.

A couple of months ago I got a text from my good friend Dan about going to Vegas with him, so naturally I ignored it, as I do with most texts from good friends. I never really had any desire to go to Las Vegas, but I knew eventually my travels would take me there. He made me an offer I couldn't refuse...Free hotel. So I said I would go, and I actually got pretty excited about it. I got the scoop of things to do from trusted friends and made the most of the trip. It was a lot better than I expected and a lot less crazy than I expected. The snaps above are a pretty good synopsis of the trip.
