• How to Feel Motivated When You’re Feeling Down and Low Energy [PART 1 of 3]

    A couple nights ago one of my best friends sent me a text suggesting/asking that I write something about how to feel motivated when you’re down and low energy – the title of this post. “My current life problem,” she added. My response to her: “I’m definitely not an expert at that one.” Yup, not an expert at all, so I can’t solve your problems. However, I do have some perspective and can share what I’ve learned through my own experience and what I’ve observed of others. There are three parts to what I’ll be sharing, which are three different ways to look at this issue of motivation – two…

  • How to Save Both Time + Money by Investing in Yourself Now

    Today I want to address something that I feel a lot of people, especially young people, do not see or realize. I really hope that reading this blog post will change or shift how you view time and money, and that this will save you from so much wasted time in the long run. It makes me so sad when I hear of people who, at the end of their lives, have all these regrets of not doing things that could have brought them closer to their dreams. Instead they can recall plenty of “safe” experiences. Experiences within their own comfort zone. Okay, please don’t get me wrong – I…

  • How I Organized All My Clothes (Vlog #4)

    When I first discovered Marie Kondo I was obsessed. Pretty soon I had the most joy-sparking room ever, although I ended up moving out of that place not too long after. Oh well. I recently moved back home and found myself just piling things everywhere.. and then I recorded a far from glamorous video to share with you guys how I applied the KonMari tidying method to sort through all my clothes. Yes, all of them. The video is on the longer side but there was only so much I could cut out for the whole video to make sense. I also think it goes by pretty quickly – at least…

  • The Most Efficient + Effective Way to Communicate

    Speaking of efficiency… it’s getting late so I’m giving myself a time deadline to finish writing this post… The most efficient and effective way to communicate is really simple actually, but somehow it’s so hard for perhaps most people in the world. It certainly was an ongoing challenge for me for most of my life, but after some experiences I’ve learned a very important lesson about communication, aka how we talk to and express our thoughts and feelings to others. Important lesson learned: Just say exactly what you want. Forget about being a people pleaser, because there will always be some people who aren’t happy with what you say or…

  • What to Do When You Get Home from Work Exhausted

    I got home from work today feeling exhausted so I figured why not write a post about how I manage to stay sane once I’m home. Well first of all not that you need to know but I’m lying on my bed using my phone to blog. So it probably just looks like I’m being lazy and texting or checking social media. Anyway, I myself have been on a quest to find the best daily schedule/routine, and currently I’m still not where I’d like to be. But I’m not discouraged or feeling all down about it. It’s still good to be kind to myself, but being kind is not the…

  • You Are What You Believe You Are

    The above picture was taken by me during my walk home after work today. Ever since starting a new job last Tuesday, my schedule has gotten so much busier to the point where I now have a hard time keeping my inbox and notifications at my favorite number zero. And I’m starting to get used to it and even feeling a little bit okay seeing the red numbered circles popping out of a third of my apps. Guess I’m not unemployed anymore. And there goes all my blogging time.. Or so I thought. The past week I could hardly find time to run errands, and I literally had to schedule…

  • Working With What You’ve Got

    Sometimes it’s easy to find yourself wishing for something. Something that you don’t already have – whether it’s something material or something that is physically intangible. I don’t know about you, but I’m guilty of both. To illustrate, I will use myself as an example. Things I’ve wished for include… Material – Warby Parker glasses, Macbook Air, new clothes, new watch, new jewelry, a completely remodeled house, more money, my own designated parking spot at work since parking is impossible unless I get there before 6am or something. Hence I’ve been commuting without my own car this week. Uber to work, train + walking back to home. And yes, Los…
