This is not the end…

I know this post has a VERY clickbait title but I have something to tell all of you.

You might have noticed that I didn’t get a post up last Thursday as scheduled. ; (

I will be taking a little break from the blog until further notice because I have been so busy balancing my life that I have become too tired to work on my blog. So much so, that I would treat my blog writing as a chore now, more than a hobby, which I dreaded to happen.

I seriously don’t know how people manage to juggle work, maintaining relationships, eating healthy, paying bills and kids. You guys should be saints!

So for now, consider me to be signing off temporarily to give myself some free time to focus on bettering(is that word?) myself.Β 

Best,

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.

5 Things Successful Women Do On A Friday

DSC02512

All successful women(not claiming that I am successful) know that a Friday night is a bit more important night compared to the other nights of the week. They don’t let the upcoming week phase them, so they make the most of their Friday, although we all know that Fridays are best time to hang out with friends and family, but if you want to be successful you won’t be running towards the nearest bar but planning for the week ahead.


Get Organized

Most successful career girl will always stick to their weekly routine, even on a Friday, even if the cocktails are calling their name. The fun will always come after work for sure, but they also know how to work on their dreams. A person looking for success will plan out her priorities for the upcoming week, whether personal or work related. Spend an hour working on your schedule for the week. This means when you are so out of energy on Monday, you have less to think about because you already scheduled it!

Keep in touch with your networks

Since Friday is all about being social, give yourself a little break by easing up on some numbers and instead turn on your network. Whether it’s clients you need to remain on good terms with or someone new who has a good reputation. Friday is a perfect day to tune in with everyone. Send a message to a friend who just got a promotion or write a friend. Networking is so vital in the working climate, so make the most out of it.

Clean up your files

From a week’s worth of hectic office life. Peers have probably dropped Β by your desk with files, loose paper or upcoming projects. Friday is the best time to go through all of the files and clean/organize them all up. Β 

Get started on bigger projects

Of course Monday is the time to start working on your next big project. But When is the best time to plan for it? Friday of course! Plan for your next big move before you relax in reckless abandon on the weekend. Leave everything work related behind you for Saturday and Sunday!

Leave it all behind

Even the most ambitious women take breaks, and that’s what weekends are for! So make sure to give yourself a good break! I know It can be hard to let go of work sometimes, but it can wait over the weekend. Overworking yourself can sometimes make for poorly make content. When the day ends. Stop. And take a deep breathe, dish and dine with your fave people!
