How To Work Hard And Play Hard

When you’re working, it is the thing that will take over most of your life. It is the thing that you will do each day for many years, and often, you can see colleagues more than you see members of your family. And while being out and working is all well and good, there is a lot that can be said of people making sure that they are able to enjoy their time off work; work hard, play hard, right? If you are spending 50 to 60 hours each week working, then spending a much smaller amount of time relaxing and getting refreshed, is really important. Working too hard or too much, without a break, can lead to burnout and stress if you let it. So being able to take some time for yourself so that you can recharge and have fun, can help you to work better, and just do life better. Here are some ideas to help.

University is a very formative time in your life and it’s likely that you’re going to change a lot over those 3 years. For most people, it’s the first time that they’re living on their own, managing their money, and really thinking about what they want to do with their life. That can be scary sometimes but it’s also really exciting, but you are going to have to make a lot of decisions along the way. Some of the decisions that you make during your university career will have a big impact on the rest of your life, while some of them won’t be that important. Either way, you need to be prepared for these decisions so you can think carefully about them, especially the big ones. These are some of the big decisions that you will face during your university career.

Things I've Enjoyed This Summer

Hey lovelies, honestly for me summer is pretty much over I'm back to working a lot and quite clearly the weather has already taken a turn. I'm not mad at this either tbh because I'm not the biggest fan of hot weather, tit sweat and young children being everywhere. I'm literally a combination of squidward and the grinch so I'm ready for winter.

Get to Know the Basics of Wearing a Long-Sleeved Dress

Not many girls will opt to wear long-sleeved dresses for homecoming or prom, so if you want to be different and stand out, then this is the perfect dress style to go in. Typically, dresses with long sleeves are sophisticated options for those who want a modest look. But, these can be very versatile too such that you can choose design variations that make the dress unique and show off your own personal style.

The Graduate Rut

Hey lovelies, I've been feeling massively down in the dumps and I've found myself in the post graduation rut.

3 Financial Goals To Reach Before You Hit 30

Hey lovelies, nobody likes talking about money, it’s boring and it’s stressful, especially if you haven’t got any. But money is a fact of life and things are so much easier when you learn how to manage it properly. When you’re younger, it’s not likely that you’ll have much money and you won’t be thinking too hard about your long term goals, but you probably should be. The earlier you start getting into good habits, the easier it’ll be later in life when you need to start making big life decisions. With that in mind, these are some of the most important money goals to reach before you hit 30.

Needing A Break

Hey everyone, a month or so ago I wrote a post titled "when things get too much" and believe me since then things have got a little too much for me. I feel a ton of things, but mainly depressed. Being someone who is so exceptionally high functioning and feeling like I'm not succeeding because of how unwell and depressed I've been has put me in a crippling mindset that I'm just not sure that I can cope with, and it's time for a break.
