Trash Talking

You’re trying to be more eco-aware. You’ve got a very cool reusable grocery bag, and you’re eating organic.

Check Magnet

When it comes to giving back, somehow you always say yes.

Help organize that fundraiser? Absolutely.
Pitch in on volunteer day?  Done.
Write a check for a worthy cause? No problem.

Here’s another easy yes for you: Ever feel like all the volunteering and donating seems more like a chore than the significant and meaningful contribution you intended it to be?

Sweet: 0, Spicy: 35

You don’t need a Magic 8 Ball to tell you that getting to New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl is beyond your New Year’s budget. Instead, signs point to watching the UH Warriors play Georgia from a comfy sofa in your living room or a friend’s.

But after going big the night before, the thought of facing rowdy fans and standard chips and beer fare at a Sugar Bowl party sends up Outlook Not So Good to the fortune telling window.
