So if you are a regular around these parts you noticed that I have been absent this past week. I am getting better at writing consistently but sometimes personally I need to take a step back to breathe and reevaluate my life. Even though I feel I wasn’t productive in this facet of my life things are changing and I feel that good things are on their way.
I am getting prepared to go back to school July 1st at UC Berkeley… online, of course. More than anyone can know I wanted to go back to school to get my Masters but financially that just is not realistic t this point in time. It kills me to put that on hold but I have to remind myself that things happen for a reason. And I don’t feel too entirely crushed that I cannot go back right away to get my Masters because of the fact that I will be starting a program at UC Berkeley for Project Management. My employer has a partnership with a trust that has partnerships with several different schools and they offer these programs to us at no cost. When I was told about the project management course I jumped at the opportunity; this totally relates to my desire to be in the field of communications and public relations, it also curbs my appetite for school and the best part I think is that I don’t have to take out another ginormous student loan. I feel that is a definite win-win situation.
I also picked up another little job, I am now the Administrative Assistant for the Public Relations Society of America, Inland Empire Chapter. I already do work for the Los Angeles Chapter of PRSA so I figured that this position was a no-brainer; I have about the same responsibilities as I do with Los Angeles and it allows me the opportunity to network with professionals that are in my area. Although I love LA and I love the people I work with and meet every month, it is nice to not have to leave my house hours before hand to fight LA traffic. This job is temporary only until December of this year but the way I see it, it is a resume booster as well as experience.
I also took a break from working out, I was beginning to feel like working out was all I would do in the day; well working out and working. I would wake up between 4:45am and 5:15 am, go to the gym, come home and get ready for work and after work I would come home and do whatever I needed to do around the house always keeping in mind that I needed to make sure I was in bed no later than 10pm otherwise I wasn’t getting up in the morning. It felt like I wasn’t doing much of anything else so I decided to take a step back and make sure that all of my other commitments were in order and nothing was being neglected. I know that people say you shouldn’t be out of the gym for too long because it makes you lazy or it makes it harder to get back into a routine; I believe this. Although I love being able to sleep in and stay up later I do miss being active. Exercising is something that I like to do, it makes me happy and it sure helps me to sleep better at night.
This past week I have been shopping too much, mostly for stuff I legitimately need but also for a lot that I just really wanted. So this coming week I think I want to devote to things I’m digging; products, people, companies, etc. I feel that although I do not have a large following of readers, I do greatly appreciate honest reviews and information about products that I might be interested, so maybe someone will stumble upon my blog and I will have been helpful? Who knows either way that is what is to come this week.
Until next time
