I recently heard Lupita Nyong'o promising to partner with more female photographers in 2019.
It was on the evening of the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards event late last year, and Instagram had partnered with her to capture the event through her eyes. As you can imagine, hearing her say this made me really happy - not only because of my love for photography, but also because it's always nice to hear a woman choosing to support other women.
Unfortunately, women supporting other women is rarely the case - especially in the workplace.
Having recently graduated from University, I'm currently mentally preparing myself to go back into the workplace, and I find that out of all the concerns I have about finding a job, the thought of working alongside other women is the one that troubles me the most...
As Christmas celebrations are coming to an end, and the beginning of a new year is fast approaching, it always feels like the right time to look back on the last twelve months and see what they've taught me...
Travelling has become an escape for me.✈
I usually don't realize how much I need to get away until I'm sitting in the plane, staring at the clouds, and it suddenly dawns on me that I'm leaving everything familiar behind for a while. 🛫
I had a similar experience with the Milan trip my sister and I took recently...
It's been months since I moved out of my old residence and started looking for a new place to live in.🏡
But it feels like it's been much longer than that.
It's one of the most frustrating things I've ever had to do in my life; and it can be quite discouraging, especially when it looks like you might have gotten a break - but then everything suddenly falls through.
I've spoken to friends about it, received a lot of assurance from them that it's normal for it to take this long, as well as helpful tips on how to improve my chances of finding something. But the search is still taking much longer than I'd like it to. 😣
It's through this experience that I've discovered how much I dislike waiting, and how impatient I can get when I have to wait.
"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." - English proverb.
I didn't realize how true the above saying was until it actually became the perfect description of my life! 😯
I find it easier and more effective to write down how I feel rather than to say it.
