I wrote a post not too long ago all about how I balance a full-time job with blogging and other projects – it’s something I get asked a lot so I thought it could be useful to some to provide a little update on how I tightrope along this line. Working full time and trying to balance a ton of other things on the side is definitely not an easy task – you may think you’re superwoman (I’ve definitely thought I am in the past), but after a long day at work and a big dinner that throws you into a food coma, you easily find that you need to be a bit smarter with your time to really reap the most of of your “extra-curricular” activities. The weekends really become two days to truly cherish – finally you have time to tick off the growing to-do list that you’ve told yourself to get to all week before you fall asleep at 9pm. Being likely pretty tired and pretty fed up from a long week, it’s easy to spend your weekend doing a whole lot of nothing – chilling tf out to put it in more simple terms. Sometimes, that’s needed. I went into this current weekend with high hopes, and now its 20:24 on a Sunday and all I really have to show for my weekend is a half drafted guest post and a yet-to-be-edited pre-planned Instagram post for DAME. Maybe a few e-mails too. It happens. But here are some ways to make at least the majority of weekends as productive as possible.

For the past two years I’ve done a “back to school” survival guide – however, usually, my survival guides are totally aimed at everyone en route back to secondary school. Why? Well, school is a tough time. I would go into every school year with a plan of action around how I was going to totally transform with myself (and I know I wasn’t the only one), it was a time filled with a lot of insecurity and a whole lot of learning. I always say that if blogs/YouTube channels were really a thing at the time, I would have appreciated these as good sources to hear from relateable people about their experiences and how they dealt with different things. So – as an ode to my younger self, I always love to reflect once a year I write up these posts. This year, I decided to step it up just a notch, and come out with a freshers’ edition! Whether you’re just starting uni, or reminiscing, here is my freshers’ survival guide…
