Well I’ve officially caught a cold and I’m wallowing. I rarely get sick and frankly it’s probably a good thing because I’m so pathetic when I’m sick! Since being in the working world, I’ve learned that there really isn’t time to be under the weather. Like ain’t nobody got time for that… but that’s easier said than done right? So I’m loading up on all the cold medicine I can get my hands on and saying a prayer that this blows over fast!
I get asked questions all the time about my blogging journey and specific aspects of my “double life” all the time. I want to shed some light on 3 important questions that I get asked from time to time.
- Do you blog full time? Nope. Maybe one day but right now I am a Supply Analyst from 8-5, Monday through Friday and then I blog pretty much every hour that I’m not at work or sleeping. So while I don’t technically blog full time, I sometimes feel like I have 2 full time jobs by the amount of hours I put in every week between the two, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
- How do you keep a work/life balance? I don’t. Hence the sickness. I am over-exhausting myself by trying to put my all into everything that I do, when in reality I am probably not able to give 100% in every area of my life since I have spread myself so thin. It’s definitely a work in progress. Eventually I will get to where I have a work/life balance (or so I tell myself) as soon as I can get a grip on navigating two full time jobs. If any of you have tips on this, I am all ears!
- Why do you get so dressed up for work? Because I am a firm believer in “if you look good, you feel good”. Also a guilty confession: getting ready in the morning is my favorite part of the day! That might sound sad to some people but I’ve loved hair, makeup and fashion since I was little. Getting put together in the morning and looking good for the day makes me feel productive and sometimes we need that extra push to get us going, plus countless studies have shown that you are more productive when you make an effort on your appearance. So if you don’t trust me, then trust science! Dressing up is good for you!
If you liked my short little Q&A then please let me know what else you would like to hear from me. I love hearing your feedback and I am always happy to answer any questions that you might have.
