3 Non-Typical Things To Do Before An Interview

If you’re anything like me, you also hate job interviews. They are such a necessary part of growing up but it’s something that can be very nerve-wracking and intimidating.

And while the age old advice of “it gets easier the more you do it” is true; I think it should be modified, to “it gets easier the more you do it, but it’s going to be painful, stressful and probably pretty embarrassing along the way.”

Mid Year Goals Review: 6 Month Check-In

Well technically it’s July but it’s roughly 6 months..ish.

Either way I wanted to write a post that provided a check-in on my goals for the year, and to be honest, I haven’t really been keeping up with them. And it’s easy to say, “Well, the year is half over, so why bother?” but it’s just as easy to think “Well, I still have 6 months left, there’s still so much I could accomplish.”

6 Life Admin Tasks I’ve Been Avoiding (And What I’m Doing About It)

For a blog called Millennial Life Admin, you’d think I’d have shit altogether, all the time right? Nope. And that’s a part of growing up. It’s easy to think that as “adults” we need to have it all together all the time, but that’s neither healthy nor realistic. I used to think my parents (or really any parent) knew exactly what they were doing and had every aspect of the life responsibilities all together, and the truth is, no one does. No one knows what they are doing and everyone has room to improve.

So here are 6 Life Admin Tasks that I’ve been avoiding and my commitment to you on what I’m doing about it.

4 Super Small Changes That Refreshed My Morning Routine

I’m the type of person that never really understood the idea of a morning routine. For most years, my morning routine consisted of a few basic necessarily steps that got me from my bed to the bus stop.

However, this year, I wanted to take more control of my mornings. I’ve watched Youtube videos and read articles about many morning routines before but I never found them realistic for my circumstances. I work a regular 8-5 job; I don’t really have time/motivation to complete an exhaustive list of activities before I can catch my bus. So I found little ways to refresh my morning routine instead of revamping it into a list of activities that I know I will not be able to complete.

The Blogging Diaries: 5 Things I’m Doing Differently To Maintain My Blog

If you read my last post about how I’ve consequently failed at my last 3 blogging attempts last week, then you would have seen the embarrassing screenshots and progress steps that I’ve taken to get to blog I am at today. If you missed it, I’d highly recommend reading it first to get some background on my blogging journey.

Consequently, it’s pretty safe to say that I’ve encountered a lot of obstacles as I’ve tried to start a blog. I’m sure there are many more to come but that’s what this series is for!

So these are the blogging challenges I’ve met so far and the things I’m committed to doing in order to change them:

Alternative Education Options Other than University

Happy end of June! Which means that not only is 2018 half over (yikes!), but also that its graduation season.

With the excitement of finishing school to move on to the next adventure, I think there’s a lot of pressure to maintain a certain image by going to a prestigious school or having a particular career path. But there are so many pathways to “success” and ultimately it’s dependant on your definition. Here are just a few options to look at if you are looking for alternative education options to start or change your career – without paying the price of a 4 year school.

The Blogging Diaries: 4th Time’s The Charm

Why, hello there!

This is a new series I will be starting on MLA about my personal development through my blogging journey. I am not one to start blog about blogging but one of my favourite bloggers, Sam Brown from Smart Twenties, talks about how blogging can be used as a tool for personal development – and I completely agree. Like any other new experience, it’s something that will change and evolve, and help me grow as a blogger and person.

Industry Secrets That Grocery Stores Use To Make You Pay More

One of the biggest hallmarks of #adulting is grocery shopping. It seems like a never-ending task.

There’s no food in the fridge. You go buy more food. Some of it you eat. Some of it goes bad. There’s no food in the fridge, again.

Mastering the navigation of the grocery store is a level we all hope to achieve. And we’ve all heard the basic advice of grocery shopping and I will reiterate them here for your convenience (cause this is a grocery store article, kind of like convenience store, GET IT? HAHAHA) Okay just me. Moving on, let’s review the holy trinity rules of grocery shopping:

Debunking 4 BS Myths: Why Not “Everyone” Can Travel the World

why_not_everyone_can_travel_the_world

With the rise of Instagram, social media, and the ease of an inspirational quote maker, it is easy to feel less than if you haven’t traveled the world.

That somehow you’re failing as a millennial because you can’t live up to all those “wanderlust” posts.  And who am I to say this? It’s not because I’m bitter I didn’t travel; it’s because I traveled (to over 30 countries, across 5 continents in 5 years).
