Burke Does is a life and style blog that specializes in personal finances, careers in technology, and millennial struggles.

On the site, you can find book suggestions based on my very own bookshelf, my debt repayments, and my goal progress. It has related social accounts: FB, IG, Pinterest, Twitter, Bloglovin’
Emilie’s To- Do List is a bit of a misnomer. More than just a to-do list, this space is where I share my weekly tasks to help me make progress on my goals. I share not only my upcoming aims but also my reflection on the past week, including my progress and its circumstances. This allows me to track my growth throughout the year, as well as stay on track for continued growth throughout the year. I have a passion for learning and I’d love for you to be my accountability partner.
Did you ever pick up a habit from your grandmother? Summers at her home taught me how to work with my hands- knitting, crosspoint, and needlework. What the Stitch is the result of those summers. Not often updated simply for a lack of time to make, the site is my platform for sharing the needlework that I do get to do. I also reference my needlework progress on my weekly check-ins. I hope to make one needlepoint ornament for each year of our lives.
The American Rugby Referee is a project I am still building. Frustrated by the lack of centralized resources for rugby referees and the over-dependency on Facebook as a medium of communication, I thought it was necessary to create an independent resource focused on growing not the game of rugby and the populations participation in it but specifically the environment for high quality referees, a necessary prerequisite for the growth of the game in my opinion.
Food Emilie Eats is my food and fitness community on Instagram. I have been doing Crossfit since August 2016 and have absolutely loved it. While these space started as a form of virtual fitness accountability, I have found that in my local Crossfit community, which I’ve shared about many times including my reflection on 17.1. At the end of the day, it boils down to the fact that I like to take pictures of food and I like to workout. I share my food using #FoodEmilieEats.
