I'm A Career-Oriented Woman, And No Man Is Going To Change That

I'm open to possibilities, but changing my future is not one of them.

I'm A Career-Oriented Woman, And No Man Is Going To Change That

If there is one thing I have learned in life it is: "Do not let any man change who you are or want to become."

I am a college student and a full-time employee, and seeking a relationship is not something I plan on doing anytime soon. I say this because I know my schedule is busy, and education-wise, I have many years to go.

Having a partner would not be fair to them because I would not be able to give them an adequate relationship.

Because of this, if I were to come into a relationship by chance, I know I wouldn't alter my plans and goals if my partner were to ask. I have worked too hard and put in a lot of time to get where I am today, so to ask me to pause or stop on this completely is almost disrespectful.

My career goal is to become a pharmacist. Currently, I am working toward my bachelor's in biology, and as of now, I am a certified pharmacy technician. Throughout this, I have fully supported myself and done just fine without a partner.

So, to all the men out there, know you are not needed by me, a career-oriented female.

As a career-oriented female, I know I will never rely on a man for income or stability. I am and will be fully independent, even if I were to be in a relationship. And, with that, my partner should not rely on me for income or stability.

We both need to equally supply income and maintain finances.

To those out there who disagree with me, you should know I respect your views and opinions. I am not here to knock on a certain lifestyle but am just simply stating my views on what I think a healthy relationship is.

So, fellow career-oriented women, do not feel left behind if you have not gotten engaged, married, or had a child yet. Everyone has different life goals.

For us, obtaining our education and excelling in our careers is our life goal. Who is to say what happens after, we just know that having a man change our goals and plans, is not one of them.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

As a first-year college student, I've been doing a lot of meeting and introducing myself to people, often with the classic format of "name, hometown, major".

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

6 Ways To Handle The Stress Of Earning Your Degree From Your Childhood Bedroom

Oh so this was the room where I snuck cookies upstairs past my bedtime and stole R-Rated movies to watch when my parents were asleep and now I'm expected to earn my degree in this very same room?

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.

Taylor Swift is famous for her Easter eggs on social media that hint at what is coming next for her. Over the past few days, fans noticed a change in Swift's hair when she was accepting her win as Apple's songwriter of the year that was reminiscent of the "Red" era. Of course, this has caused widespread speculation that Swift has begun to re-record her masters.
