Confessions of a recent graduate

In college certain expectations with regards to your life after graduation are created. “With a degree in law you can do various jobs.” “You won’t have too much difficulties finding a job.””This and this is what you will do in your job.” Truth is that yes, I can do a lot with my degree, but finding a job is not as I expected it to be. After graduating I first traveled a bit and did a summer job. Since I am planning on doing a master degree in February (if I pass the entrance exam), I was only looking for a temporary job, but already noticed certain obstacles.Β  Continue reading “Confessions of a recent graduate”

10 things I’m grateful for

Thanksgiving is coming up next week, and while I don’t celebrate, I do believe it’s a great time to think over all the things I am thankful for. I’ve read that listing all the good things in your life contributes to our mental health. I often catch myself focusing on everything that is going wrong. Reminding myself of the things I do already have (achieved) always cheers me up a bit. Continue reading “10 things I’m grateful for”

18 months of blogging: what I have learned along the way

An important deadline is approaching, which means that I become an expert at filling my time in the least productive ways possible. I am quite good at procrastinating, really. On these dark autumn nights I remember the day I started this blog, and the first weeks following that moment. Blogging was so new, and discovered how it all works bit by bit (honestly at first I did not even know how to publish a post).Β  Continue reading “18 months of blogging: what I have learned along the way”

Losing and finding motivation

I will start with a confession, I’ve been struggling to come up with a topic for this post. Writing about travelling is nice, but I don’t do it on a full-time basis. In fact, I have never taken as many trips a year as I have so far in 2017. Yes, it was a great year thus far in terms of travelling. I don’t have that much going on lately. Along with the search of a temporary/part-time job, I am preparing myself for a TOEFL and entrance exam, after which (if I pass on both) I’ll hopefully be able to enter my masters abroad.

The power of introverts

This post was inspired by a TED talk I watched this week, with the same title. (you can watch it here). Susan Cain decided to ‘speak dangerously’ and tell us why being introvert is more than ok! The main difference between introvert and extrovert people lies with how they get and spent their energy. It’s important to mention that no one is solely one or the other. Some people lean more to being introvert, like me, others to being extrovert, and you even have people that balance somewhere right in the middle. Continue reading “The power of introverts”

How I deal with my fear of flying

I am not sure what is going on, but lately I’ve been gaining followers by doing exactly nothing. Thanks! Exams and internship are over, so normally I will have more time the coming weeks to write and read. In a next post I will update you about my summer plans.

I was thinking of a subject to write about and since I’ll be taking the plane this Sunday, I thought I’d write about anxieties related to flying. When you search the internet you can find quite a few tips about this subject, but I somehow always feel like these posts are written by people who don’t have the anxiety themselves.That’s why I decided to share my very brief experience with flying and my anxieties that come along with it.
