Another Big Life Update

Moraine-Tara-9150399.jpg

So here it is, last I mentioned about my career I had decided to leave work due to the unhappiness and stress the environment was causing me. While I mostly left with little to no plans, there was one thing I kept from the story. During that time I took a long look at how my life was, would be and what I wanted from life. Often while we are in University there is so much confusion and on top of the assignments, coursework, and exams we are also expected to figure out how the rest of our life should look in a four-year span. Well for me, I was good at economics and finance, so it just seemed like a natural fit for my life and what I should do. But often just because we are good at something does not mean it is what we are destined or meant to do.

Moving On

I have thought about writing this blog post countless times over the past few months and I am glad to say I finally can. I QUIT MY JOB! After months of going back and forth, weighing the pro’s and cons and debating whether or not it was the right choice, I bit the bullet and just did it.

What’s In My Work Bag?

I recently wrote about my current job and while I am in the process of looking (and hoping) for a change, I thought it would still be fun to share what I am currently carrying in my bag every day to work. My job entails me being in the downtown core for the majority of the week and as I do have an office, a lot of what I use daily is kept there (I am talking a drawer full of snacks, the true essentials). I always find it interesting to see what others carry with them in their bag, so here is a collection of what I am currently carrying with me.

Is The Struggle Always Worth It?

I quit my job … and then I got roped back into staying. I made a timeline for quitting my job … and then the deadline passed. I have talked, thought and decided I am quitting my job more times than I can count and then proceeded to back down. I am now starting to feel like the boy who cried wolf. Will I ever just quit?

Winter Walking

Rye and I recently escaped the city for the day to the mountains. It was a much-needed break for both of us with all of the craziness going on at work. It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of work and everyday life. Plus breaking out of the monotony of 8 to 5 is always an added bonus. I think it is so important to remind ourselves that there is more to this world than working away at a job you hate for money, maybe that’s why I am so adamant at a career change … again … or maybe I just can’t make up my mind.

Life is Hard, Work Harder

Growing up my parents both consistently told me that life is hard and was going to kick me to the ground; if I was lucky only a few times but likely far more often than that. Of course when I was very little I did not believe this advice, what is so bad when you are young. But sure enough came the bullies, the broken hearts and the failures as the years went on.
