Mindset Matters

This is a response piece written in response to Forget Setting Goals. Focus on This Instead. written by James Clear on Entrepreneur. This is an old article as it was written December 17, 2013 but I just saw it on a friend's Facebook wall. While reading the article, it struck me the wrong way which is odd because I clearly agree with his ultimate "goal" (no pun intended). But don't get me wrong, James Clear had some really great points that I wanted to address! I won't cover everything he discussed but will try to cover some important ones! Continue reading →

A New Beginning

This month has been really crazy. Finally moved in with my girlfriend and have most everything unpacked. She still has a lot to unpack but she's waiting as there are a ton of other things still to be moved up. We have a sofa arriving this weekend too and man does it feel nice. I've also gotten sick which has sucked a whole week out of my life. Actually more but it's also sucked 2-3 weeks of my girlfriend's life. Continue reading →

The Real World

Welcome, to ... "The Real World". It's finally happened! I've completed my schooling and am now working! It's great, though this transition has been pretty stressful. After graduating, I moved a lot of stuff to my new place and am still unpacking. At work, there's a lot of onboarding material to review such as policies, benefits, and team projects. I feel slightly overwhelmed by everything but I still feel ready to go but extremely tired by the end of the day. Maybe it's the student in me that still likes to get my work and still likes the stress. Continue reading →

Apartment Hunting

Apartment hunting can be stressful and a pain. I finished finding an apartment for the next chapter in my life and needless to say, there were a lot of questions that made the process so much easier! My girlfriend and I probably spent over 40+ hours looking online for apartments, making appointments, visiting, asking questions, looking around, and making decisions. And there were a lot of things to remember that even in retrospect we still had some questions that we wish had been answered right away. The best thing to do is always have a contact number or email address of someone in the leasing office so that in the worst case, you can contact them with more questions! Continue reading →
