5 Small Money Saving Tips that Work

July 17th, 2019

Ah, money. Don’t we love it; don’t we wish we had more. I find that I like to spend my money on concerts, festivals, and similar events with friends. Sometimes these aren’t cheap though, and in order to do so I always have to be budgeting for the rest of the things I do. Going out with friends tonight? I need to somehow be able to have fun AND spend less. As I’ve been budgeting and saving money for bigger purchases, I realized that a lot of small purchases we make can really add up. By saying no to a lot of little convenient purchases, I’ve actually surprised myself at how much I’ve... Read More

In Defense of the Millennial

September 26th, 2018

It has become a sort of joke to make fun of young people, especially Millennials; which tends to mean myself. Technically though, I was born just after the ‘cut-off’ date to be considered a Millennial, although the date changes consistently. As such, I am a member of Generation Z, iGen, or the Postmillennial Generation. Despite this, I have grown up and come of age with the concept of the Millennial Generation being lazy, disrespectful, and destroying the world with their magical smartphones. Because of the slightly muddy definition of which age-ranges are grouped into which generation,... Read More

Stigma: The Smoke In Our Eyes

“That is not a drug. It’s a leaf.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger Unfortunately, saying you actively or recreationally use drugs, regardless if it’s marijuana or heroin, still carries a stigma that is not attached to social drinking. Fortunately, though, the negative connotation related to pot use may be on its way out. The millennial generation, ages 20 to 36, now lives in a country where some form of recreational marijuana use is legal in nearly 25 percent of the nation. In fact, a Pew Research Center survey found that younger people were “more than twice as likely to support... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

March 3rd, 2017

A: “We once once made a deal; I was going to join cross country if she would join the high school musical.” E: “I did it for a little while…” A: “…But then she quit. My friends and I all felt betrayed! hahaha.” E: “Yea and now we mostly hang out making fun of each other and doing homework.” What are you both studying? E: “I’m studying bio-engineering. I know a few disabled people in my life… and they made me want to improve the lives of anyone who is disabled. It’s easy to find a path in bio-engineering that... Read More

Young Women & Business: Millennials in workforce, open grounds to closing the gender pay gap

October 28th, 2014

If you didn’t read my last week’s blog, allow me to summarize: Boulder may be in line to become the next, Silicon Valley-esque, tech-driven national economy. With that comparison comes a dangerous truth: Boulder could be facing what the technology giants in Santa Clara are experiencing themselves: massive gaps between men and women’s incomes. And without attention paid to this issue, Boulder could be following in these same footsteps.   Santa Clara’s pay gap is large and it is concerning when you begin to compare what Boulder could become due to this similar technology boom. Nevertheless,... Read More
