So, what’s going on?

It’s been a while. I’m having this problem with my dedication and motivation. I discussed it within my last post but it still seems that it’s as ripe as ever.

I took my AS mock exams a few weeks ago in preparation for my exams come May (not long, now) and I’ve been very busy learning the ins and outs of photography and trying to master the skill to add to my creative portfolio. I also got a job. It’s about time. In regards to this blog, I’ve had little time to spend on it, it seems.

In managing my time, I can sometimes go weeks without posting on this blog, because I’m too involved in my freelance work or my studies, and the same goes for sometimes I’ll post here each day, but other elements of the equation therefore are let down.

How To Start Your Week Off Right

HOW TOIt’s natural to occasionally have a case of the Monday Blues. There are few people who embrace the start of the week, and even fewer who enjoy it.

Personally, I have never been one to greet Monday’s with a warm hug but rather will a forceful push. Everything’s wrong; everyone‘s wrong; and, most importantly, everything feels wrong. There is rarely a Monday morning that comes when I don’t want to punch everything that breaths the wrong way – and don’t dare accidentally push into me in the corridors!

That being said, starting your week off agitated, tired or without enthusiasm is never the way to go. The hardest thing is knowing how to change this. Continue reading How To Start Your Week Off Right
