Today, like many bloggers, I wanted to take a step back and talk about some of the things I’m thankful for at this stage in my life. Since last Thanksgiving I’ve had a ton of positive changes in my life, so I wanted to share them in a tangible way here. First, this site. For […]
As most of you probably know, I’m an actuarial science major at Illinois State University. The actuarial science department here is very closely related to the insurance school, so, after seeing Nick at an insurance event at ISU recently, I sent him an email to see if he’d be interested in doing a College Candid.

Set up online banking apps for all financial accounts To preface this step, […]

Admittedly, I was a little upset at first, but now I’ve decided to just go with it and will be posting one winter / festive themed Noteworthy point until the […]
I met Hunter this past summer because we both had internships at the same company. He is double majoring in Economics as well as Human and Organizational Development at Vanderbilt University. The HOD major is especially interesting because it is a unique degree to Vanderbilt, which I thought was really cool. What are some interesting […]
