Normally, I’m not one to buy into trends. But right now, zombies are trending in a big way. They’re all over television and movies, and they’ve even invaded “Pride and Prejudice…(and zombies)”. And, with the unfortunate inception of zombie-creating drug “bath salts”, I’m willing to say that it’s better to be safe than sorry on this one. It’s official – I’m getting my survival strategy down.
- Pack a “bug out bag”
This is a serious thing. There are many Youtube videos dedicated to various types of bug-out bags and kits (urban, wilderness, pocket…zombie). This is usually some sort of sturdy backpack that includes basics like first aid kits, water, a fire source, knives, sometimes food, machetes, and anti-zombie repellent (just kidding). So, this would ideally be something to do in advance, but if that’s not possible grab a backpack, shove everything in it, and…
Fast. As fast as humanely possible. Get to high ground, and possibly climb up on things (it’s rumored that zombies can’t climb very well – my rock climbing skills will come into good use here!) Now, don’t just run randomly and in a panic – tighten up the straps on that bug-out bag and head to…
Or Wal-mart. Why? Because they have everything, and lots of it. Food, water, clothing, weapons (for that bug-out bag) and if there’s enough people, they would be relatively easy to fortify against the zombies. Lots of places to climb, as well. But don’t hang out in the super-store indefinitely. Grab some gear and, when possible, start for…
- Cold weather
That’s right. Physically, the zombies can’t survive in the cold. They freeze because the blood isn’t circulating. They just turn into zombie-cicles. Which, while that doesn’t sound at all appetizing, it does sound slightly less death-causing than warm zombies. And, whether fighting frozen zombies or warm zombies, it’s important to…
- Stick together
There’s strength in numbers, remember. And the zombies will definitely have numbers on their side, so keeping together is paramount. Now, obviously, don’t stick with dead weight, but rather with people who have bad-ass skills and the will to survive. Group work means rotating shifts and more people to take down the zombies. And it’s a good idea if everyone in the group…
- Plays to their strengths
Good at cooking? Wonderful. A natural-born leader? Hop to it. Brute strength? Build the shelter. Everyone has special talents, and when on the run from zombies, it’s no time to be vain. Everyone gets a task, and everyone does that task to the best of their zombie-fighting ability, no matter where the group is stationed, because, remember to…
- Keep it moving
Zombies might not be smart, but don’t become sitting ducks for them. Fresh meat, after all, is hard to resist. Even if the group has made it to cold climates, don’t stay in the Canadian Costco forever. Don’t move recklessly, obviously, but don’t get too comfortable. Constant vigilance, my friends. Stay safe and beat the zombies!
No clever puns. No humorous words. Just sit back and admire this beautiful beast shaking water away. It’s downright inspiring.

Job hunting can be a long, sometimes discouraging process. There are tons of job hunting tips out there, from how to prepare to how to talk about yourself accurately and positively. But let’s not kid ourselves– interviews are stressful. During an interview, the potential employee has a lot going through their head. How much eye contact should they make, how to answer questions, what kind of words to use, and an awareness of how they are presenting themselves overall. They want to seem professional but also like someone who is fun and easy to work with. It’s hard not to crumble under all of that pressure. Luckily there are a lot of ways that someone can prepare for an interview to be successful.
Doing the Research
It’s important not to go into an interview with no knowledge about the position. Of course it’s OK to ask clarifying questions about the job and the workplace, in fact it’s great to ask questions, but having zero background knowledge will make an interviewee feel unprepared and unqualified. Researching the job, the company, and maybe even the person (or people) conducting the interview will help anyone feel ready and give them a basic knowledge to expand upon.
The resume is an important factor in getting a job, almost just as much as the interview. Luckily it’s a combination of the two that will help someone land the right job, so a strong resume can help to make up for a not-so-great interview. There are plenty of tips and services for building a stunning resume, but no matter what it’s important to present a straightforward, organized, and honest recount of previous experience, interests, and education or training.
Feel Good About Yourself
There’s a lot of emphasis on dressing appropriately for an interview. This changes from job to job, but it makes sense to generally dress for the part. If the job requires professional dress, attending the interview in that type of clothing will help interviewers see the person in that particular role. While there is a lot of focus on clothing, there are other aspects of someone’s appearance that they should think about. When meeting someone for the first time, their smile is very important. Having nice, bright teeth will not only impress interviewers to some degree, but help the interviewee feel more confident about themselves. This can be achieved by simply employing whitening toothpaste, mouthwash, or strips, or people might even consider visiting a cosmetic dentist in West Hollywood or wherever they are.
An interview is an opportunity for someone to show off their strengths as well as be honest about their weaknesses. They should be themselves, but in order to relieve stress over an interview it’s helpful to present a polished version of their true selves. This includes being prepared with background knowledge and a clean, accurate resume, as well as looking the part by dressing well and coming in with a bright, welcoming smile.
