So it’s officially Holiday Season! In my mind, there are endless to-do lists to check and gatherings to attend in the coming months. While I am a very extroverted person, I 100% need my quiet, alone time. It’s often difficult to say no to things when you’re always told to just show up and say yes! However, I’ve learned this year that sometimes saying no allows you to more effectively say yes to those bigger, more important things and actually show up with your undivided attention and efforts. Do you ever feel overwhelmed during this time of year? I know I do! It’s now that we must re-commit to our routines and simple things that keep us grounded - whether that’s your Sunday morning yoga class (my fave ritual), top-to-bottom apartment cleanings on Wednesdays, or nightly walks to decompress - it’s these rituals that will remind us to stop, take a few deep breaths and appreciate all that we’ve worked so hard for and enjoy the fruits of our labor. As trite as that may sound :)
I've always had an interest in a wide variety of things; from video games to books, movies, computer science, biology, and music. While these interests have served me well either as hobbies, extracurriculars, or in classes, now that I am in college I need to start narrowing down my fields of interest so that I can get a job, preferably one which I really love doing. My only problem is figuring out how to choose a career path (especially with so many different opportunities out there) that both provides a comfortable living and that I really enjoy. So far what I've heard is that either you're not as wealthy and suffer a bit in that regard but you really love your job or vice versa you don't really love your job but you can definitely live comfortably and pay back student loans. Thoughts?
