As you get older and as your planners become overcrowded with errands, versatility becomes your best friend. When I'm getting ready, I'd rather have one palette of eye shadows that does it all than hundreds of mediocre ones. I don't have time to search for certain colours in my draws.
Urban Decay has recently released the Born to Run palette, I could be too late to the party but I have finally managed to snatch one of these palettes in the store. In this post, I will be discussing whether this palette is worth the hype.
As I was strolling across the
infamous Paperchase haven of stationery, I come to a realisation that we obsess
about being productive. This made me think about my habits as a student - I
used to constantly engross myself with making long lists and punish myself if
those lists were left incomplete.
Even my weeks were made into planned lists
because it gave me a sense of control. I knew what to do and what to expect. On
the other hand, the curse of productivity addiction screwed my mental health. This
troublesome voice in my head kept calling me worthless when I was unproductive.
The competition in the job market
is real, getting a job even with a perfect education is a struggle. In
2016/2017 there have been 757000 people with undergraduate degrees under their
belt and 237000 with postgraduate qualifications. When it comes to employment,
you should have a clear strategy, effortless applications lacking in research
are not enough.
In this ‘how to guide', I am here to guide you through
common life challenges. In this post, I will share some of my knowledge to ease
your journey towards becoming employed.
July was the beginning of
something special – the birth of this blog. So far, I have been trying my best
to be active in the blogging community, support other creators and also be
inspired by their work. I have particularly enjoyed these lovely bloggers this
month – Ruthinrevolt, HelloBexa and Hayley Ivy. Thank you, ladies, and well
done for your hard work.
In terms of thoughts more generally, I have been thinking that my mind should
be always improving. Days spent not doing something useful is kind of a waste. However,
perhaps this need to be productive has stressed me out a little. It’s all about
finding the right balance and being kind to myself. I kept trying to figure out
who I am as well. I am living representation of self-identity crisis. My
boyfriend always tells me that the answer to the question ‘who am I?’ is – ‘I
am’. My August will be the month of being and discovering.
