Thankful for the Year 2017

If you’ve been an ardent reader of the blog, by now you know that I started a tradition back in 2016 for some reasons. I decided to start penning down my thankful notes for each year before the next year.

It’s an opportunity to look through the year and remain thankful despite whatever challenges I might have encountered.

If you didn’t have the opportunity to read that of last year, you can read it HERE. I went back to that post and kept smiling all through. I suppose this is a great tradition to keep here on the blog.

Giveaway: I Partnered with Caseapp (Win a Phone case or Laptop Skin)

If you’re being completely honest with me, I’m sure you’ve rolled your eyes a number of times giving the number of phone-inspired posts I’ve been publishing lately.

The Changing Job Market: An Immigrant’s Story

While contemplating becoming an immigrant in Canada, I decided to move for several reasons and if I’m being honest, I had to consider whether my career will still be in line. 

Thankfully, I was already certain that I didn’t want to go ahead with practicing law so that was out of the way – no need for re-evaluation, articulation, re-examination, re-qualification and believe me, I was excited.

But choosing a career also bothered me a great deal. I didn’t want to start one that I will detest, another life where I feel trapped in a career that I didn’t enjoy and I knew would dwindle in the long run. One where I felt like I wasn’t making use of my passions and talents.

4 Things to do at Work this Holiday Season

The holiday season is one time of the year almost everyone looks forward to. It’s the period for parties, dancing, and a lot of food-related activities – and who doesn’t love some good food tasting?

No, food is not overrated, I said so!

As a child, I was in love with Christmas and everything festive that came with it. However, with age came the need to be so serious coupled with the fact that I became the one that had to do the spending. Adulting can be so amazing and annoying all at the same time.
