1. I saw this Blogmopolitan Quiz on Erin at Two Thirds Hazel's blog and thought it would be fun to participate. I remember reading Cosmopolitan years and years ago and this was one of my favorite parts. I always wanted to be asked those questions. Haha!
2. On December 10, it has made two years since I graduated with master's degree. While I am not currently using it (can't say that I ever will), I wouldn't trade the experience, my growth as person, or the people that I met for nothing.
During graduate school, I worked 37.5 to 55 hours and went to school itself for twelve to fifteen hours a week. I even planned my dream wedding in 5.5 months during that time. The work in graduate school was relatively easy. I was actually surprised, because I was expecting it to be harder. I thought college was harder. Time management is what sucked. See, I set my own schedule at my job, but I was on call 24/7. For school, I went on Fridays (5 hours), Saturdays (7 hours), and some Wednesdays (3 hours). The job that I had at the time was a major part of me feeling like I had no time. I won't go into tons of details, because of the nature of the job and all the privacy laws surrounding the position. I'm just glad that chapter in my life is closed; graduate school and that particular job (long story!).
While I'm the type of person who tries to see the positive in every situation, this made me realize that I didn't want to pursue it any further. I mean, if it came down to me having to use it, I would (I'm don't want to be forced to do it. Besides, I'm a "think outside the box" type of person). Since graduate school, I had actually worked in sales (last year, I was a car salesman), which is basically the opposite of being a Mental Health Counselor. The topic of Mental Health Counseling and Psychology still interest me, but it isn't my passion. I just couldn't devote my life to that career path. In school, I actually learned what I wanted to do, what I didn't want to do, and was able to expand on my interests. Therefore, I'm thankful for that.
Life is too short to be unhappy. Like I have said many times before, "Your degree doesn't dictate your life. Also, your self-worth shouldn't be tied to your job/career."
3. I started doing monthly goals this December, instead of goals every three months. One of mine was to moisturize my face every night, because I usually forget or too lazy to do it. The other night, I climbed into bed, got all cozy, and began looking at my phone. My husband said, "Baaabe, there's something you need to do... Moisturize." HAHA!!
4. In case you missed it:
5. I still haven't caught up with emails which is another goal of mine in December. Hopefully, I can today! That's my plan! Once I get caught up, my goal is to stay continually caught up. I also have some OOTD posts coming up within the next few weeks, as well as some giveaways. There's actually one going on right now; enter here!
We've almost made it to the weekend!!
