Budgeting

The dreaded B word haunts us again as each payday approaches us; it is quite hard for us to budget especially because every month after you’ve paid your bills, it is hard to save the $10 that is left to bring us back to work.  I most recently purchased something quite expensive and I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how I was able to purchase this at such a tender age of twenty (20) years old as well as going on vacations and so much more. The truth is I do a lot of planning, budgeting, and sacrificing; my methods are extreme and to give you a hit of how extreme I get, I’ll bring with me exactly $230 every day and that only includes fare to and from my house, yes, I do bring lunch and breakfast and water so I do not need to spend any other money apart from my fare. ...

Read this before you quit

“Do something today that your future self will thank you for” I have been wondering what I’m doing with my life and what my next step will be ever since 2018 started. The crazy thing is that even though I know what I want and how to get there, sometimes I feel like I’m not seeing the results I want.

Opportunity for growth?

I am considered to be an alpha female so most times people automatically assume that my fierceness outside is reflected inside as well. The truth is, everyone deserves to be checked upon.  What inspired me to write this? Today, one of my colleagues told me that my supervisor openly stated to a manager in earshot of other colleagues that she is trying to get rid of me. I was shocked, not because of what she said because and if I am honest, I expected it but she must have said it loud enough for someone to hear and return the news to me. A million things ran through my head as even though I need to be out of that place, I have only begun my process of working on two major goals. In the midst of all of these thoughts, I was able to stop and think about it seriously for a m...
