5 Ways to Enjoy the Weekend as a Worker

It’s another Friday!

Excited? Isn’t it funny how most people hate Mondays and are totally in love with Fridays?

I’m indifferent. Actually, Monday is one of my favorite days of the week, not like I care. But on Mondays, I’m usually recharged and ready to take control of the week.

I also look forward to Fridays. Don’t get me wrong, I love to have some free time and Friday reminds me of Saturday and Sunday.

I pretty much handle my personal matters on weekends which is why I like Fridays. So yes, let’s TGIF!Continue reading

5 Ways to Start up a Conversation at Work (Easy Tips!)

This post will be very useful for a newbie (or not) at work. Since relocating to Canada, I’ve been a newbie at several workplaces and initially, I would struggle with starting up a conversation and cringe at the mere thought of it.

Thinking about it presently, makes me smile.

When I had to intern (one of my best work experience so far), when I had to change jobs a countless number of times during my post grad to find a part-time job that could fit with my schedule.Continue reading

4 Quick Tips to Solve a Too-Quiet Office

I’ve had to work in an office environment where I had my own space, pretty large beautiful office space, and of course, a sliding door I could shut to have some privacy. The beautiful part was that I could see my name boldly written at the entrance of my office.

Every day, on my way to my space and out, I’d feel some sense of pride to see my name neatly hung on the door. It had many cabinets I barely used, but was happy to own.

And I’ve equally had an open workspace. My table shoved at a corner. No doubt, wide table, large enough to contain three monitors, white space, and all what not. That entrepreneurial feel to an open well lit space.Continue reading

7 Tips to Get your Dream Job as an Immigrant

One of the biggest decisions I have ever had to make was pack up my bags and decide to relocate to Canada. I don’t want to think that many people relocate to a new country without making concrete plans on how to survive in the new environment.

It’s so much of a serious decision, but I think that many people don’t know the proper ways to go about delicate things or what to expect. Also, they probably become frustrated at some point because everything seems different and not everyone has a great coping mechanism.Continue reading

It can be a little bit difficult to work with a coworker who wouldn’t want you to do your job. I know you may be of the opinion that that’s good news for you. But, to a certain extent, you may also want to really carry out your assignments and prove that you are up to the task. You also don’t want to appear to be a lazy person to your boss: and whoever may be watching you! These things could also affect your performance at work. Continue reading

5 Movies/ Drama Series every Worker should Watch

By now you know that I love watching movies. It just has this energy it gives me. I also enjoy reading a good book but I haven’t read any in a while.

How do I Deal with a Co-worker that Interrupts me with too Many Questions?

Hello, lovely readers!

Apologies for not updating the blog well enough this week. I was really swamped with work and if I had attempted to stay put with my blogging schedule, I would have been pushing it too far. I always recommend getting adequate rest at all times even though our modern world can be so fast these days. All the same, I had to live by my mantra: take it slow!Continue reading

3 Ways you Think you are being Positive, but you are not!

I’ve been so excited these past weeks and I can’t really tell why. In fact, the beginning of this year has been awesome and I’ve been feeling so light-hearted and happy with everything around me, not because anything spectacular happened!

Tell you what! It all started from two years ago.

Two years ago, I made a conscious decision to become a positive person. Yeah yeah, I know this sounds cliché. The talk about positivism is becoming overrated. I certainly know that!

But it’s different this time, trust me! So keep reading.Continue reading
