#JobJumperJourneys

by Aaron J. Yancey

31 jobs by age 31! A couple of denied entries into Law School leads a maniacal and gregarious Millennial on a journey to find the perfect career. He finds it difficult balancing making enough to support a growing family with doing work he enjoys. In his pursuit of #BlackSuccess he eventually climbs to the top of the corporate ladder going from making #30to80K in less than three years. Quickly annoyed with masquerading in the banking charade, he decides to make the jump into the scary and very lonely world of entrepreneurship. From delivery driver, to server, to educator, to car salesman, to printer technician, to Taxi Driver and Banker, there are very few jobs Aaron J. Yancey has not jumped to or thought about jumping to. Follow his journey as he memoirs the path that led him to his current crossroads through poetic short stories.

Eu sou toda sua (Portuguese Edition)

by Carol Glassar

Quando eu vi o filho do barão pela primeira vez eu soube que era meu e de mais ninguém. Ele é incrível, maravilhoso e não tem como resistir a tudo que ele é, mas havia três problemas.
O primeiro é que eu sou mais nova.
Isso pode não ter serventia nenhuma, mas então entenda o segundo.
O segundo é que ele gosta de mulheres mais velhas.
Depois de entender o segundo dá para perceber o quanto estou por trás na fila de quem fica com o gostoso do filho do barão.
O terceiro é que eu sou uma plebeia.
Esse nem precisa de explicação.

“Eu apenas queria você do meu lado enquanto somos esquentados pelos nossos corpos e o calor que cada um provoca”
