My thoughts on work and money

Hey!

I’ve been away for a pretty long time (I’m sick as always)  so I thought I’d discuss a little thing I’ve been thinking about lately; work and money.

See, these are things I tend to avoid cause personally I don’t think I’ve ever worked hard enough, and when I worked I worked as a volunteer which means I didn’t get paid. Also, I don’t have an interest in buying from any brands that are really expensive. Brands are just brands, it’s quality that matters to me.

So sometimes I get annoyed when well known and the more subscribed  youtubers show off products they have bought, usually they call their videos ‘hauls’ and basically it’s like 10 mins of them trying on or showing clothes, perfumes, shoes etc that they recently bought somewhere. Most of the time I really like those videos cause I like to see what kind of clothes and stuff is out there for me to take a look at, but then I browse the websites they got the products from and…

Let’s just say these items that they have are litterally for people that make a looooot of money. Now, I am a person who would be willing to work (just for a part time job until next summer) at least 4 days a week 8 hours a day. Even if I did that, I still wouldn’t go out and buy a $950 designer bag ‘just to treat myself’. Always concider how other people feel about this. Some people are handicapped and can’t work, what if they see your videos and get sad because they know they’ll never be able to compete?

I don’t want to say ‘shame on you for buying expensive things’ to these youtubers, but seriously why not do an affordable haul? If you have the money to treat yourself on 3 products that already cost $2000 then obviously you could buy some affordable things to show in a haul, so people can actually enjoy buying the same products they have bought.

That’s all I have to say about that. Hereby I would also like to announce that on the last day of each month I will be doing a ‘Monthly Favorites’. Just to show you guys how affordable things are and still are of good quality and they’re just fun to have and use.

Look out for one more post tonight 😉

I’ve been sick…

Hey!

If you were wondering why I haven’t been active lately, I’ve been sick, again. I get sick very often, cause I have a very poor resistance when it comes to bacteria and stuff. It sucks. My goal is to lose 20 kg and I don’t want all this sickness to stand in the way of my goal. And I won’t let it get the best of me, because I know I’m stronger than that 🙂 .

In the meantime I haven’t been doing anything really, exept for writing some job applications. I’ve sent applications to three hotels in the area, I would love working in a hotel!

So, no posts other than this one today 😦 . But to make up for the lack of posts I will try and post 2 things tomorrow (to give you a hint; it has to do with my room and the other with beauty).

Hope you are all doing well! What was the last time you were sick and what was it?

Current Situation

Hey guys! I felt like blogging today so, here we go!

I would like to fill you in on what I am currently doing, in terms of school and work etc. So June 2016 I graduated from high school, and at that point I was just really done with studying. I was happy because I made it, but on the other hand I kinda felt worn out. But my mom urged me to start studying that following September, so I did…

Bad discision. Because when I had to choose my next study, I was already so busy with trying to get good grades at high school. I made the discision to start a study called ‘Medische Hulpverlening’ way too quick, and after only a hundred days I quit the study. I’ve learned from this and it won’t happen again as I’ll follow group courses to find a study that fits my talents, interest and personality. I’m starting those courses this January 16th.

My next study will probably start September 1st, because almost every study starts on that date. I want to be motivated, and in order to get there I figured that I should start by getting a job. Since November 2016 I’m a volunteer at a Care Center and I love working with those people. I usually shop with a lady who has suffered brain damage when she was born. But now I’m looking for a paid job, and probably it’s gonna be at a florist as a friend of mine works there too.

And that’s it, that is my current situation regarding school and work. I’ll add this post to a new category called ‘Work and Study’.
