Focus

I have a hard time staying focus. My mind is always in a million places when I am trying to focus on one thing. My lack of focus makes it hard for me to get through my homework. This actually adds time to doing my homework.

I have tried many things to help me stay focus but nothing seems to work. I don’t know what else I can try. My mind is so full of ideas that it’s hard to focus on one thing. I can never finish one project before I have ideas for several more.

Maybe my inability to focus is not a bad thing. I can’t focus because I have too many ideas coming to me. Even though my focus drifts, I get my stuff done.

Your Blog Is A Brand

Your blog is a brand whether you know it or not. You may not care because you simply blog for hobby and do not intend on making a business of it. There are bloggers who blog as a career or use their blog as a business.

The most important step is knowing how you want your brand to look. By knowing what your brand is you will be able to make sure you do things that represents that well.

When using social media you should represent your blog well there too. Either create profiles just for your blog or use profiles for both your personal life and your blog. When using one profile for your blog and personal life, be mindful of what you post. Limit your personal life in your blog posts. Decide what is you boundaries and go from there.

Whenever posting or doing something, think of how it will impact your brand.

Summer Classes

I been taking two online summer classes for the second part of the summer semester. They are accelerated, fifteen weeks condensed into seven. The workload is more than what I expected, I knew it would be a lot. Every week I have a major assignment due. I’m halfway done, it’s going by so fast. I been hanging in there and getting my work in on time. I usually feel overwhelmed in the middle and end of a semester, when most of the work is due.

I’m always either at work or doing homework. Since I work full time during the morning (7-3:40 or 7-5:40) I am usually tired when I get home. I force myself up to do my assignments. I am going to hang in there and get my assignments done. My grades are good, I have high Bs.

Self-Discovery Journey

Since high school, I have been on a journey to find myself. Who am I? Where am I going? Who do I want to be? Are the questions that I am constantly trying to answer.

Each time I feel like I’m close to knowing who I am, i discover something new that changes what I thought. My new discoveries translate to others as indecisiveness. I’ll admit I can be indecisive but not always. When an idea or thought comes my way, I sometimes just want to carry it out to see what happens. I am afraid of missing my moment because I didn’t want to do something different.

A lot of new discoveries about myself tend to be random. Like the most recent, law school. Which isn’t so random because it was a childhood aspiration.

I wonder when my journey will be finished.

Fashion Street Diaries: Big Purses

20140713-224414-81854734.jpg

I love big purses. Being a mom and a commuter college student on the go, I need a variety of things to get me through the day. A small purse wouldn’t be able to hold everything I need to get through the day.

I over pack when I’m traveling. So it’s no surprised that I over pack on the daily basis. I can be away from home for hours at a time during a day, it’s a must that I have everything I need to get through the day. A typical long day I will leave home around 8:30/9 am and return around 1:30 am ( I know what a long day). A regular day I will leave around 8:30/9 am and return at 7ish pm. Situations occur and things go awry, I would hate to repurchase something I have already at home.

My love for big purses began in middle school. It was easier to get around school with having a few school supplies or books in my purse, less things to carry. Since then I haven’t bought a small purse. Even my clutches are oversized.

Dear Diary

Writing in a diary has many benefits. I use to write in a diary back in middle school and early high school. Then I just sorted of stop. It often crosses my mind to start back writing in one.

I found writing in a diary, therapeutic. I am the type of person who keeps my emotions bottled up, so writing them down was often my only release. Writing in my diary was also, a way for me to sort through events and situations that occurred. Another thing I like about writing in a diary, is you could go back and re read past entries and re-visit past days of my life.

Benefits of Writing in a Diary
1) It’s an outlet
2) It’s a journal of past events
3) It’s a stress reliever
4) It helps put situations or events in context
