Unfortunately my pill caddy has nothing fun in it. Just stuff that makes me pee.

If you compare peeing with bladder infections and constant urge to urinate, the ability to pee is a riot.

So you can ask questions, meet folks in the field, and get contacts for later in your life?

Civ 5 is a pretty good game. Friends and I have enjoyed plugging an HDMI cable to the TV and playing multiplayer from same computer.

However, we cannot access the diplomacy tab or the game will crash. Also, the game will crash if we don't save the game like every four turns.

From experience, you really can't handle a few portion of the population without some drinks on you.

I definitely could have used some whisky at times, but you know, Dallas is a predominantly dry area when it comes to mixing alcohol with business.

Nobody cares what goes in your body. They care if you're personable and confident. Marketing, right? Personality sector, if you're not going to strike up a conversation with peers you'll have no contacts and be entirely unemployable when you graduate

Note I'm not ripping into you here, this is just advice from somebody with business qualifications and experience. Funnily enough partly in Marketing.
