12 super simple but effective tips to survive your new job

tips for starting a new job

Heeeey! I’m back. I took a few days off from blogging to spend on some me-time. To enjoy the sun and think about absolutely nothing. The past few weeks have been hectic and I deserved a few days of rest. I’m still not someone who writes ahead, so I had nothing planned on the blog. Normally I would go loco over that, but this time I just didn’t want to get stressed about it. So I ignored my blogging responsibilities. Professional? No. Needed? YUP. Anyway, I’m back and ready to move forward 100%. Starting with something light, because it’s an easy way to get the Monday started anyway. Today a couple of simple, smart and super logical tips to survive your very first day(s) at your new job.

How grown-ups definitely AREN’T supposed to move (out)

How not to move (for the first time)

When I was nineteen I offically moved out of my parents’ house. Or officially…I changed the address, but stayed with my parents for entire weekends and even days in between. This had multiple reasons, but what it came down to was that I moved for the wrong reasons. I was in a hurry (despite the right age), didn’t think it through and I think I was a little unrealistic. But well, that’s me sometimes. I don’t regret it either, but if you still want to know how not to go live on your own the first time or how not to move entirely, please, continue reading. Because the other day I discovered that I moved eleven times already in my ‘short’ life and there will definitely be more. I am what you might call a moving expert. 😉

5 really light (ahem) tips to my 20 year old self

A pinch of jo

Between my 20th and 29th, I experienced a lot of things, good and bad. I went to college, found my first (second and third) job, got cats and moved several times due to different reasons. I don’t regret those years at all. I live by the motto to never regret anything. And I mean that (most of the time). Of course, we do silly or stupid things, but we learn from those mistakes. They make us a better person. No matter how stupid those mistakes were. So yes, I’ve done some things in my twenties where I now think: hmmm, not so smart. If I had known the things I know now, then… I don’t know if I would have done things differently, haha. But I secretly hope so.
