What's Your Best Advice for College Students?

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. For reasons not entirely clear, I've been invited to speak to college students next week about landing that first job after graduation. My first job after college was an administrative internship in my alma mater's student development office. My second job was delivering food. My third job was answering phones at a garage door installation company. So I may not be the best person to speak on this matter. But maybe you guys have advice for college students that I can dish out. What's one thing you wish you were told when you were 21?

2. One former U.S. president (living or dead) must live in your house for a month, just because. Who would you choose?

3. Here's one for the sports fans. Take your favorite team and think back to all the major trades and signings over the years. If you could go back and prevent one of those transactions, which would it be? Vlade for Kobe? Jay Buhner for Ken Phelps?

4. It's been a while since I asked this one: what are you reading? Do you recommend it?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask it here. And have a great weekend!

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
