Happy Thursday, friends! Today, I’m coming at you with another edition of my Bloggers Who Inspire series. I have been a reader of Rachel’s for a long time and find myself to feel reassured after reading nearly every post. As you may be able to tell by the title of her blog, The Confused Millennial, Rachel shares her experiences and tips that she has learned while navigating through her twenties. She writes very candidly and each post feels like a conversation with a girlfriend. I’ll let Rachel do they rest of the talking for herself, here is her edition of Bloggers Who Inspire.
As we begin a new semester, I would like to be officially the first person to say that group projects SUCK. I will begin my last semester of college next week and am already dreading the group work that I know lies ahead. That being said, I think I’m a pretty effective group member: competent, on-time and willing to work. However, group work gets a bad rap because not every member has those characteristics. If you are not looking forward to the group work that is in store for you this semester, I’m going to outline how you can be an effective group member AND how you can cope with having less-than-effective group members.
A few months ago on Twitter, I asked y’all what New Years Resolutions were hardest to keep. Thirty percent had responded with “Money/Finances,” which brings me to today’s post. Today, I will be sharing with you the exact method I use to manage my expenses using Excel. I adapted my method from how Tucker uses Excel to track his expenses and I hope that you adapt my method to help you manage your expenses. You’re in for an extra informative post (with lots of pictures). Grab your coffee and a snack and enjoy!
Before we get into the nitty gritty of today’s post, I would like to address the elephant in my corner of the Internet: the blog’s different look. If you were following along with me on Twitter yesterday, then you already know that I decided to switch to self-hosted WordPress. In short, doing so allows the writer to own the content that they produce. It also allows for a lot more creative freedom in terms of the layout and customization of the actual website. This is where my problems began. To spare you all the boring details and myself some renewed feelings of rage, know that how the blog looks today, is not how it will look forever. I ran into serious technical problems (shoutout to the Siteground customer service team – you’re fabulous) that prevented me from properly using the theme I wanted. Changes are coming, in more ways than one, starting with today’s blog post.
