Wednesday, January 28, 2009

It seems like all of a sudden airlines are scrambling to ensure that you get to Dublin as soon as possible, for as little as possible, so that you can visit as many pubs as possible (as well as see everything else this amazing country has to offer). If I’m not mistaken, there’s also a […]

Sign Of The Times: Gap Years For The Newly Unemployed

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

In what may be a telling sign of the troubling economic times we are in (wow, that was such a lofty introductory clause, I should totally send in some ideas to Obama’s speechwriter) the “gap year,” or what could more accurately be described as a forced extended vacation with no visible end, are now “in” […]
