Update with meūüėä

Where shall I begin?! . In October last year, A huge step toward my career. I had to say goodbye to my retail job at H&M, with the Goodbye came with a lot of mixed emotions. Happiness and also sadness too. Because I was officially closing a Huge chapter of my life within the retail/fashion industry. I worked within this rewarding but also very “cut throat” industry for 10 years. 

That’s a long time! 10 years! I am very grateful for the wonderful experience I wouldn’t change anything. I also gained experience from this opportunity as well. One of the biggest things I had trouble doing was actually holding a conversation with someone and my people skills have gotten better too. 

Now, I have more time to get more involved within my substitute teacher job within the county I live in. A new chapter is just beginning. I am able to take a heavier class load through a online university for finishing my degree; that’s what I’m doing right now and loving/disliking it at the same time. Lastly, I get to have a social life back & most importantly I get to spend more time with my family. 

P.s. it’s finally snowing! Yea! But I don’t think I’ll be able to go out in it to much (have an early stages of bronchitis.)

Hope y’all have a happy Tuesday!

  1. ¬†When that time comes around of running late. You can’t skip breakfast. If you are running late and you really don’t have time for breakfast grab an oatmeal or cereal bar. These are truly lifesavers. These come in different flavors can find these almost at any food store.
  2. If your like me, I tend to do A lot of midnight surfer on my cell. Looking at Pinterest or watching YouTube videos. Wake and see that your alarm went off but kept on pressing snooze..¬†Right before you go to bed, Set the alarm (put the alarm to the loudest it can go). Next, instead of putting it close¬†to you. Put it away from you. So, when the¬†alarm goes off it’s going to force you get up and walk over to turn it off.
  3. To add a bit of time for getting ready in the early mornings. Lay out the clothing you want to wear the next  day the night before.
