What Is Life Really Like After University?

woman-notebook-working-girlIf you are reading this, we can only presume that you are a few terms away till graduating, finishing your thesis, or gearing up to graduate. You’ve already ordered your gown, booked your gown and are currently mustering some words to add to yourFacebook profile caption when you get to finally post your graduation photo online, FINALLY. I know, It’s a wonderful feeling. You are finally about to graduate. The feeling is unexplainable. Its a mixture of pride, happiness and accomplishment.Β 

With all these feelings, I can’t help to mention that there is also a feeling of anxiety that comes with it. Yes, you are about to enter the big bad world of adulthood. But in order to be sure of having a smooth landing, I have come up with a few truths that come with entering the real world.


Ignore What Bitter People Say

I am not going to tell you that the real world will be strawberry fields forever–Beatles reference. However, it can be fun if you want it to be. Multiple times you are going to meet a lot of grumpy people who dislike their lives and drag their feet the whole time at work. Ignore these people. Your job can be enriching, satisfying and meaningful. It all stems on your attitude towards it.

Stay On Top Of Your Paperwork

The inevitable has come! Taxes, 401K enrollments, healthcare forms and oh god..paying rent. We all have to all start from somewhere. Get ahead and get organized.

Don’t Compare Yourself To Others

I feel as if everyone who graduates then goes to Europe for their master degree or lands an awesome job in a multinational company. These people make it seem so easy. Sometimes you will pretend to be super proud of them but really, there is a hint of jealousy in there. Don’t allow social media do this to you. Live your best life. A life that fits your means.

Your Major Will Not Matter Sometimes

This realization might shock recent graduates that end up getting a job that has no connection to their major. That’s why life skills are way more important. Don’t worry too much though. You have plenty of time to figure out your true passion, build a business and grow a family.

LOL…You might have been expecting a makeup favorites. But I honestly can’t get over how great this month has been! No weekends sleeping in or just lazying around! I was so productive and had a social life(surprisingly). So this is me sharing my month, if you guys don’t mind. πŸ˜‰


This past month has been absolutely hectic! With all my weekends booked and too many deadlines to finish, I would find myself passed out on my bed with not much energy left after a full day of work and such. But I am definitely not complaining! I am SO grateful for everything that I have and all the people I have in my life.

The month started of celebrating my late birthday on Labor Day weekend at the beach or how I would like to call it, #LaborBeyWeekend! with my friends and family, plus we had a Luau night that was Moana themed! I definitely felt that my life came in full circle that night with all my favorite people in 1 room!

I was so lucky this month to have 2 amazing beach weekends(with great weather and company). I got to spend some quality time with some of my family from overseas and just catching up with rest of my family in general. If you can’t tell yet, I love family time!

Then my workmates and I took a weekend trip in the wilderness for our summer outing. I was a little but hesitant at first because I knew that we were going to be roughing it a bit. But I definitely have #NORAGRETS after that weekend. I got to know my workmates more and made some lovely memories with them too!

Mindsets To Help You Become Successful

DSC00936

Let’s be honest here. Even if we hate to admit it, a lot of usΒ are all scared of not being the successful person we envisioned to be in the future; to travel the world, buy nice things, etcetera. But how do you become a successful person? It’s all about the mindset.

Well duh, of course a positive mindset will always make anything possible, but there are other mindsets that might help you as well, like being a risk taker or being a strong willed person who never gives up. Here are a few mindsets that might just help you conquer your ladder of success.


Set Your Goals And Act With A Purpose

Every great goal started with an even greater purpose. Keeping in mind the idea of helping someone/something at the end of the day makes it all the more worth it and helps you stay focused.

Take Risks

No one ever succeeds but just staying in their comfort zone. Be brave and be bold!

Choose Good Company

I find this very important!! Surround yourself with equally passionate and successful people that share your same mindsets. Those people can only lift you higher, as you can do with them.

Don’t Mind The Others

Everyone is walking their own path at their own pace. Don’t keep track on what others are achieving and why they are achieving it earlier than you. Just focus on yourself and put all of that energy into your passion project.

Choose What Matters To You

Success require so much dedication, so once you’ve set your goals, dedicate all your energy to it. I promise you that it won’t be easy in the beginning, but I swear it’ll be worth it!

Fake It Till You Make It

Confidence is key. Be proud of what you are doing, think big and one day success will be at your door step.

Be Grateful

When you are upset about a certain result, by not achieving a certain goal, look back at your past and think about all you’ve accomplished to be in the position you are in. Stay positive and grateful for every little thing that has happened.
