Wish I had some exciting things to report today, but I really don’t! The past month, Adrianna and I have been up to our eyeballs in new business opportunities and job responsibilities. With a crazy winter that didn’t want to let up, the office took control. The weekends have been necessary for relaxing and recuperating. Admittedly, the blog took a backseat.
However, it has been so heartwarming to continue to receive emails and see that you are still using the site as a resource for your career. We would love to hear what you all have coming up (it’s almost time for the summer internship/post-grad job search!), and are here to help out. In the meantime, here are a few things I’m looking forward to over the next few weeks:
Changing out my wardrobe – This weekend, I pushed all my heavy sweaters to the back of my closet in an act of defiance, and brought out lighter tops, cardigans, and skirts. What I did realize is that in my purging-decluttering phase early this year after my S.O. moved in, I got rid of a lot of spring and summer clothes as well. Good thing, because my tastes have changed. Bad thing, because I need to make some budget changes to shop. Old Navy and J. Crew Factory are having great deals on spring staples now, if you’re in the same boat.
More do-able schedule – As evidenced by the lack of posts for almost a month, my to-do list got out of hand in February. A lot of this had to do with rearranging priorities and trying to make time for myself among the responsibilities of my job. I’ve now joined a gym that is right next to my apartment so I can easily work out for just 20-30 minutes without a fuss, I’ve made habit of going “big” grocery shopping for the week, once a week, via Instacart, and I make sure I do something fun, mindless, and new (like watch a movie on the couch or play Candy Crush) for at least an hour each night. Even popping in a new film I haven’t seen before helps me feel better about ending my day than watching reruns of Modern Family for the bazillionth time.
Working on my work habits – Since my job is still going through the ups and downs of the new year, this is a great time to be working on my overall career skills. The biggest one for me is time management. I’m the worst procrastinator, but I’ve been learning a way to organize my day so I can feel relaxed while I go through my work.
Anything you want some help on in the career, life, or fashion department? We’re here to help (again!). Missed you guys! Xo
