If you’re here, you’ve come to the right place. The world is big and confusing. Just ask us — we’re 20-something year old college students at a private four-year liberal arts university, about to graduate. Gulp.

We’re Jordan and Arielle — good kids with good grades and good intentions. When we’re not freaking out about the choices ahead, we’re having good clean fun in New York City and studying some kind of journalism … hybrid … thing …

It’s not the best time to be confused. Jobs are hard to come by and dream jobs are even scarcer. Meanwhile, college tuition hikes seem to have no end, and neither does student debt. As members of Generation Y we have opportunities our parents didn’t have, but with the world wide open, it’s harder than ever to pick the right path.

We don’t have the answers. But we hope to spark some thoughtful discussions. If you do have all the answers, then why not write with us? Send us an email at and we’ll be happy to get you on board.

This won’t be possible without you. Your experiences are the life-blood of this site. Don’t be shy in the comments, and if you are freaking out about something let us know at We’ll see what we can do.

—Arielle and Jordan
