life // 9-5 syndrome.

I have been at my job for four months now. and I am so sad to say, I have the dreaded 9-5 syndrome. It’s an epidemic. but the first step to a cure is realization.

what is 9-5 syndrome? it is common among the adult population. and can be detected when your monday through thursday consists of nothing more than work, dinner, sleep. repeat.

on a serious note, I have truly been struggling to find the energy & time to take on the world do anything after I get off work. but that’s not due to a lack of things to do. there is a wedding to plan [just over 3 months away], creating content for LLinaBC, about 99 things around the house. you get the ideait happens so quickly ..I get home from work, [J] & I make dinner, we spend a leisurely moment on the couch, and BAM! it’s 10:00PM. time for bed. I know my entire life would be happier if I got more done in a day than 8 hours at my desk.

do you suffer from 9-5 syndrome? what are your remedies?

the adventure begins.

I could not be happier to share with all of you ..

I began a new full-time position.

[tomorrow will mark the completion of two full weeks].

the road to get here was so long, with many lulls. but it truly makes it that much more exciting + worth it. it’s hard not to get down on yourself when your job search yields numerous “we’re sorry, we have decided to go with another candidate. good luck!”. it is easy to second-guess your worth. but don’t. I gave myself the “they don’t know what they’re passing on” pep talk countless times. and now that I’m in a great position, it makes me want to work harder than ever.

now my concern is how am I going to decorate my office?

[if you know of any great etsy shops, I’d love the recommendation. I want inspirational prints + fun items everywhere. I do spend 8 hours a day in that chair].

happy thursday.

friday, we’ll see you soon!
