Never work before breakfast; if you have to work before breakfast, eat your breakfast first.

The Coffee: According to a recent post on Mashable, 95% of recruiters successfully hired candidates found through LinkedIn. A recent trend I’ve heard is hiring people without even meeting them in person. While social media can greatly help your career, it can also be a potential downfall.

You can be whoever you want to be on social media, so when it comes down to it, a good old fashioned in-person interview is how I would want to hire. Yes, social media, resumes, Twitter and Facebook can weed out the wackos, but in the end, you have to be able to work them. If you are looking for a job, make sure your social media precense is enough to get you that interview!

The Cream and Sugar: Although I am estatic to see the warm weather arriving, I was sad to say goodbye to March since it houses one of my favorite holidays. Restaurant Week Boston of-course!! My bf and I made reservations at Terramia Ristorante in the North End for an evening full of wining, dining and 3 courses each for only $33!!

Here is the menu we sampled:

Antipasta: The carpaccio was perfectly thin and not too salty, the zucchini flower was light and fresh
CARPACCIO DI BUE – Paper-thin beef, organic baby greens, lemon olive oil condiment, caper berries, Reggiano cheese
FIORE DI ZUCCA – Stracciatella cheese stuffed zucchini flower, petite arugula salad, honey truffle aioli

Primi: Let’s just say I died and went to heaven with fresh made pappardelle, truffle oil and goat cheese. Goat cheese!!
PAPPARDELLE CON RAGÙ DI CINGHIALE – House made Pappardelle pasta with wild Boar ragu, aromatic vegetables and Parmigianino cheese
RAVIOLI DI FUNGHI – Mushroom ravioli with Madeira veal Demi, crumbled goat cheese and truffle essence

Secondi The salmon was so tasty, and while my bf obviously enjoyed the beef, the puttanesca salad had his taste buds as well.
BISTECCA – Champagne marinated Beef short-rib, braised beet greens, short-rib ravioli, crispy leeks
SALMONE ALLA PUTTANESCA – Pan seared Sockeye salmon, Puttanesca salad, wild rice Florentine

And guess what? If all this Italian fair is too much for you, RestoWeek’s next endevour is Beer and Bacon Week! Yum!

Cheers!

We fear death because we feel that we haven’t loved well enough or loved at all, which ultimately are one and the same…

The Coffee: I saw Midnight in Paris yesterday, and I must admit, this is a summer bucket list priority! Little did I know this Woody Allen creation would send me tumbling to memories of my favorite artists, writers, and poets of the 1920’s and make me long to skip over to the nearest Museum and drool over Monets, Picassos and Degas’. The main premise of this story is yearning for a life more glamerous than your own. The protagonist, Owen Wilson, learns to accept his own reality as the best because you can’t keep living in a fantasy. Everyone has an idol, even your own idol. This week I try to channel this into my own life by getting being excited about the present I live in.

The Cream and Sugar: I am moving semi outside Boston in the fall. For once in 4 years, I will have my own room. Mind you, I am an only child, so 4 years wasn’t much to compromise after an entire lifetime of aloneness. I am especially excited for this new move because this is THE move from college living to *real* living. I’m throwing out the sticky wall tape, heading to Home Depot and buying some goddamn nails. I am also saying no to tapestries. First things first, I want pretty wall art.

While I would love a room like this…

 

 

 

 

 

I suppose I can settle for this gorgeous number…
