Keeping Work Life and Your Personal Life Separate

For us as millennials, social media dominates our lives these days. We are constantly tweeting, posting, sharing, Instagram-ing or YouTube-ing. We really have no limits to what we share and it can cause parts of our lives to cross without us even knowing it.

We forget that our boss follows us on Twitter and share things that aren’t really necessary. Not that it will necessarily make or break…

"I don’t know why people teach kids about ‘pimples’ and ‘hormones’ and ‘armpit hair’, and refrain from telling them that if they don’t achieve their billion-dollar dreams at the age of twenty-one, there will still be much more to life. And that when you fail at your first job, it isn’t going to be the end of the world. And eventually you will realize that each person’s world is different and your only job is to figure out what your best world can be."

Sept. 12, 1992: Dr. Mae Jemison Becomes First African American Woman in Space

On this day in 1992, Dr. Mae Jemison became the first African American woman to travel through space. She served as Mission Specialist aboard Space Shuttle Endeavour on STS-47.

WTCI’s Alison Lebovitz discusses the legacy of the first woman of color to travel beyond the stratosphere on “The A List with Alison Lebovitz.” Watch the interview here.

Jemison appeared on Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me in 2013 and told host Peter Sagal how she geeked out about Star Trek as a young woman, relished dancing in the Space Shuttle Endeavour, abhorred using diapers in space, and much more.

She also described what it felt like to finally achieve her dream of visiting space:

And I remember one time actually we flew through the Southern Lights… They’re these shimmering curtain of lights. So there’s nothing that you could have ever seen in a science fiction movie that would even come close to seeing that in person.

Pretty stellar.

Day Job vs. Dream Job: When to Pursue Passion or a Paycheck

Day job or dream job

I graduated from college with a degree in English. It’s a loaded statement to admit, and I’m always nervous about telling anyone. There’s a stereotype among us liberal arts graduates – we’re all going to end up as baristas (which is a perfectly fine job) or stuck in dead-end jobs with no advancement opportunities that have nothing to do with our degree.

Unfortunately, some of us are forced into…

Sometimes being your best self means acknowledging that you have areas to work on, and that can mean finding inspiration in others.
