    One must always expect the unexpected. When I watched the Karate Kid, I never took into account that the meaning would impact my job career as much as it has. The beginnings of job searching is fun and exciting. I was optimistic and thought every place I applied for would call me for an interview or the position. Needless to say, I was wrong. The job seeking experience is now one that I do not look forward to at all. In fact, I dread job searching, but due to my recent enlightenment on…

    I waited with my cellphone in hand as one, two, three rings, and finally…“Hey Lily!” a familiar voice greeted, his tone friendly and confident as always. In the background, one could hear the quiet rumble of his car as he made his way from work, back home to his family. I couldn’t help but smile as I responded back. I was excited to be talking with a close family friend again, and he was one who always kept the conversation intellectual, yet stimulating. Every time we talked, his discussions…
