I work 24/7 but I love my jobs

    My name is Linda Liulo I currently live in San Diego (one of the most expensive cities in the United States). I live here because I like it and more important because I can afford it.

The Struggle with God's Will for Our Life

One night a friend called to tell me that she had a friend, who was also her insurance agent, who would be adding to his team in the capacity of a Customer Service Representative.  I love this friend. I trust her. I know instinctively based on who she is and our relationship, that her words have value. Those words spoken to me by another person may have held little value....more

If I Were Andy Sachs...

03rd November, 2014. 5:01pmNaBloPoMo, November 3 Prompt:Write about an amazing imaginary brand or organization you’d love to work with. What would their pitch to you look like? What would your post say?When I was in high school, the only thing I want to do is publish one poem on MEG magazine - a local teen glossy I love. As I entered college and was introduce to the World Wide Web, reaching my dream had been so easy. I was, in fact, given the chance not just to publish an article in the magazine, but work for them as an intern as well. However, being part of the team didn't last long. It was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever done.After my stint in MEG, and after seeing The Devil Wears Prada about a million times (okay, I was exaggerating. It was just about ten times), I knew I should at least try passing my résumé and try my luck on the magazine, but I didn't. I never even tried. I eventually, became a writer, of course, but it was never how I imagined I would have become.But what if the tables are to be turned and they suddenly asked for my help? What if the current Editor-in-Chief came up to me one day and invited me to be part of their team? Will I say yes? Will I accept the invitation?...more

Blogtober 2014: Dream Job when you were little/what is it now?

Thinking back to when I was a wee little Meggie, I wanted to be a psychiatrist, a lawyer, and a writer. I recognize one apparent factor in the majority of my ambitions: to help people. I've always liked to problem solve and lend an ear. One other commonality is that I must have known I would be in school for years on end, haha! I have a master's degree in New Media Journalism and I took six years to enjoy undergrad. Clearly, school was on my vision board since approximately age 7. ...more

I’ve designed the perfect job. For me.

It begins with cheese. Or perhaps it’s simply that I cannot imagine life without the pleasure of cheese. This is sensory deprivation of the worst sort. And food is all about our senses and emotions. A love of cheese is hardwired into my genetic code. There’s a part of me that’s French après tout. Mainly my stomach, but a few limbs and half my brain too....more
