My ultimate career goal is to be a practicing attorney, and most of the terms on this list fit that career well. As an aspiring member of the legal profession, it’s important to develop…[Read more]

  • The main social media platforms I currently use are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Wordpress. In terms of which platforms are “central” in my online presence, I’m most active on Facebook and Twitter by far. Facebook and Wordpress are used primarily on my actual computer, while I use Instagram and Twitter primarily on my iPhone (I do have apps…[Read more]
