Gender differences

Gender differences

I’m back in full swing with my study now. In the past week I’ve already almost completed one of four units so I should definitely be done in time for our move considering I’m not working full-time for much longer.

Snoozefest

Snoozefest

Sorry about the lack of posting last night. I worked 60 hours this week and have been an unstable ball of stress for the past few days! My company has been sponsoring a big banking conference, which means I’ve been busy schmoozing bankers for the past two days. Read the rest of this entry »
