Kickin It With Superheros.

Ready for a joke? What’s black and white and red (cough read) all over…A newspaper, you say? Nahhh.

It’s my column “Learning The Hustle”  in LA Family Magazine! This week’s topic for “Learning The Hustle” in the Life After College section is living on a budget.

Budget? Wait, what? I don’t even…WHAT DOES THAT MEAN!?

Budg-et (n): a plan for the coordination of resources and expenditures; the amount of money that is available for, required for, or assigned to a particular purpose

Thanks, Merriam-Webster

Check out My Latest Article: Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $200. You also get to see me act all awkward during a weekly Life After College vlog on the website.

LA Family has given me my own landing page, so if you happened to miss an article, and you’re all, “I was GOING to read a few “Learning The Hustle” articles from Life After College, but since I can’t find the article I’m looking for, I will sit on my couch and watch Game Of Thrones instead…”


We are getting high tech over here. Serious face. All of that Facebook/NASDAQ talk will surely die down once people realize that on the landing page, they can find all of the articles I’ve already written for LA Family archived in order of appearance for their convenience.

Thank you to everyone who has shown support towards the new column. If you’re new to this, stop by, click like, leave a comment, and do a little dance. While you’re there, poke around in the Life After College section because LA Family Magazine has picked up a bunch of really great writers who all offer completely different perspectives.

On a different note

I will be going to Florida in a little over a week, and while I am gone, I will be looking for a guest post or two. It’s not that I DON’T love you guys, because I do! I’d just rather be ballin’ with Spiderman and The Hulk than be spending my few precious days in Florida in a scoliosis induced posture, typing away on my keyboard.

What can I say, I kick it with superheros.

Hopefully you’ve been around long enough to catch the general vibe of my blog. Once in a while I write about serious stuff like that time squirrels literally chewed their way into my apartment. For the week I’m gone, I’m looking for TWO bloggers to fill in for me. You can pitch me a few ideas, but I can immediately tell you a few things I will NOT accept

-Anything that inappropriate, derogatory, or offensive toward specific people or groups of people. I’m not down with sexism, bigotry, or racism.  Not that I think my fabulous readers engage in any of those types of behavior, but it’s always good to be on the safe side.
-Anything referring to the recent Time Magazine breast feeding cover. I’ve read enough arguments on it already. Time Magazine received the exact reaction they were looking for. Moms everywhere are yelling at each other and calling each other bad parents. It’s cray. If you DO want to read an interesting perspective on it, check out my girl JW Moxie over at AimingLow. She IS a great parent, and she DOES rock!
-Previously published material. I keep it fresh here in Findingravity. Nothing you’ve already published on your own blog, and nothing from Sparknotes.com

Shoot me an email: carley@findingravity.com with a pitch for a super awesome blog post, and we can work something out. I’m looking forward to sharing and promoting a few different voices on the blog!

Hope everyone has an excellent weekend. Don’t forget about the giveaway TOMORROW, (Click here to learn more). Pinned Pretty is sponsoring the May giveaway this month and has donated a supa dupa fine, hand made, lined make up bag!

Oh you fancy, huh?


  1. great job!! i’m going to read your articles 🙂 and i’d submit for guest posting but i don’t think you’d like anything i have to say LOL btw, I’m having a 100+ Follower Urban Decay Giveaway! I hope you enter 🙂 ♥

  2. I haven’t read the past two articles yet thanks to life getting all up in my face but let me tell you – all I’ve been thinking about is having internet time and reading them. Some people may think “lame”, I prefer “total Carley fan”.
