the fight to make friends when you’re a post-college millennial

cb-friendss-2

When I started writing for the blog, Myleik gave me one tip: be honest. The realer, the better. I generally am not the first to offer up personal information to a room of people I don’t know (though I’m sure you all are very nice people). Everything I’ve shared so far has been true to my experience as a millennial navigating the gauntlet of adult life, but they have been things I’m not afraid to admit about myself. (I’m a recovering truant, I love cars, curlBOX is teaching me the definition of hard work, etc.)

But this one is not so easy to talk about. Read More…

what i learned about being late

curlBOX rule #1: Be ON TIME. Anybody who has worked with Myleik will tell you: being late doesn’t fly. When the office opens for business, I have to be ready to work, not waltzing in the door.

After 21 years of chronic tardiness, getting to work on time is one of the most challenging parts of my internship. How ridiculous is that? Read More…

what it’s really like to be a millennial intern

It’s 7:55 pm on April 30th. I’m looking at the cursor blink in the body of the email I’m supposed to send to curlBOX in five minutes. “I look forward to hearing from you all!” Does this sound like me? I hope I come across as the smart, interesting, totally-not-lame person I am. Time’s ticking, but I’m terrified. After my boyfriend reads my application for the 75th time (bless his heart), I finally send the email at 7:59 pm.

Fast forward to the first week in June, I’m sitting in the curlBOX office still in a little shock that I’m there. Working. I mean, I had been a cashier and a camp counselor but this was a real job! I had a desk and there was a coffee maker and everything. Chance the Rapper is playing in the office and I totally had one of those movie moments where the character’s inner dialogue is all, “I think I’m gonna like it here.” Then, I got an email with my workload for the week. *cue Kendrick Lamar’s “Don’t Kill My Vibe” * Read More…

instatalk: how do you feel about #bodygoals?

cb-instagoals

Teyana Taylor has been on the lips of practically everyone since gyrating into our hearts in Kanye West’s “Fade” video. The hip hop socialite flaunted a drool-worthy bod that set the hashtag #bodygoals ablaze. However, there’s been much debate about the overwhelming praise of the 25-year-old mom’s taut abs, insane thighs and unforgettable derriere. Does #bodygoals do more harm than good? We’re chatting about it today on Instagram (@curlbox). Join in.
