Hey guys! January has been the longest month ever so let me give you a life update to catch you up to speed.
We’re in a new year, new things are happening, moves are being made — all that good stuff!
Phase I of New Life
For the first few weeks of January I’ve been putting myself out there applying for influencer campaigns, freelance writing opportunities, networking events, etc. Essentially just getting all my sh*t together before classes start for Spring.
Phase II of New Life
Classes have begun as of Monday. I’m happy to say I am looking forward to my courses this semester.
Knock on wood.
I was slightly worried about my workload in tandem with all the opportunities I applied myself to. However, I am feeling secure in my time management capabilities. (For now.) ☺️
I have been offered a position as a Saxbys Partner for the spring semester! Yay!!
I am very excited to work with a company I have been a fan of for so long! I cannot wait to see what other doors this opportunity will open.
This is super fresh information to me, so look out on Instagram for further details soon.
I have been approved as a freelance writer for Philadelphia Weekly, which is gnarly. I pitched them my first story idea on Monday and they loved it. They’re looking for gritty, laugh out loud funny writing.
Give me a beer or two. I’m the gal full of wild stories.
Luckily I’m a decent writer too. 😋
Ask more, talk less.
I talk a lot. I could talk to a wall. This is both an asset and a hindrance. Over the years I have tamed my ruthless gift of gab. However, I have made it a priority in the new year to speak less and listen more.
I am also working on becoming more comfortable with asking questions.
It is okay to not know everything.
I’ve realized the importance of allowing others to share their entire thought before formulating and sharing my own response or rebuttal.
It’s also imperative to remember you are never too old to learn. Each and every person has knowledge to share.
Keep on keeping on.
I’m going to do my thing for the remainder of January. See where February brings me after implementing a stable routine (fitness, academic, work). I tend to do best when following structure.
I hope your 2020 is off to a spectacular start and will keep on getting better.
