Negatives and Positives

Summer has come and gone. I have not been posting as much as I have always tried to. Despite that, I miss writing my thoughts out onto my blog. I spent much of the summer applying to jobs without much luck. I had resigned myself to just being a stay at home daughter. While I did not have a full-time job; I did have an online job but I wanted a real job like my friends. It is hard to get yourself out of a negative mindset when you are in the world of social media.

It did get difficult to see when I was going to get out of this dark place but I busied myself with the four F’s: family, food, fun, and friends. I went to the Drake concert, planned a Disney trip (which I will post about), and even thought about visiting family.

 

Life is funny though. When you least expect something, it tends to happen. Right when I threw in the towel and decided to not actively look and give myself a break…I got a job. A real, full-time job. It’s been exactly a month and while it is exhausting and it sucks to not have as much time to myself–I can finally save money, pay off loans, and then hopefully began to save to maybe move out in the future, pay off debts, and get a car.

This little post is here to say: do not compare yourself to others. Life is not a race. In your negatives, you will find a positive. Surround yourself with people who will lift you up and encourage you. You will need support. Sometimes you can’t go things yourself. Life is full of ups and downs, negatives and positives, and an adventure waiting to happen.

Time Away

Every time I say I will be posting more, life throws me another curve ball. A few huge milestones have passed. My blog became 5 years old, I graduated with my Master’s in Fashion Marketing, and I’ve thrown myself back into the job search.

Minnie Vacation: Disney

Sometimes all you need is a good weekend away from home and the hustle and bustle. That is what I did. Between internship, final semester of grad school, home life, and my online work, I needed a break to disconnect and enjoy. My girls and I enjoyed our time in March so we vowed to do it again for Halloween. What better way to get away than a Minnie Vacation at Disney (haha get it? Mini…ok..)

Chinatown Crawl

Chinatown

A few weeks ago I had a much needed girls day out with my fellow fashion major friends. What better way to spend a Saturday than to stuff yourself full of dim sum? Conversation, food, and good friends is all you need. And ice cream. Always ice cream.

Summertime Happiness

IMG_1435It’s been a while since I posted. It’s just been hard to find the inspiration and the drive to write and upkeep with the blog. I don’t lead a particularly interesting life (I won’t lie–I’m pretty plain like everyone else). I don’t live the blogger life as I don’t gain any money from this or have a ginormous following.

With the job search pretty much zilch–thanks economy, I have lots of time to myself and my family now while working part time.  For the past few days, I think this is the most social life I’ve had since high school.

My best guy friend came down from Florida and despite living so close to New York, he’d never been SO why not make an adventure out of it?

A Little Time Out

IMG_5476

Sometimes the best way to clear your mind is to get away. The best place I could think of is with my family out in Florida so I booked a ticket and jetted over. As the years have passed, I’ve gotten more and more aware of how time truly flies and to appreciate your family and those you love.

Summertime Happiness

“Don't worry, about a thing,every littleOne door closes but another opens. I am starting a new journey as a college graduate. It’s like I’ve been thrown into a state of limbo but there’s something exciting and I am actually in no hurry to apply to five million jobs. I am perfectly content with the small part-time jobs I have currently while I build up my resume.

4 years flew by so quickly that it’s difficult to comprehend that I no longer am a college student. That being said, I am free! I had to celebrate with a stroll by the Hudson River and the view of the city.
