Design your life

What makes up your day? Mine consists of so many little things that I can hardly keep all of them in mind. Sometimes it’s hard to tell which one is a game changer. Think about

  • Food and exercise
  • People you deal with
  • Music, books and movies
  • Social networks
  • Living conditions

To make your life better you need to grab the bull by the horns and be responsible for your own happiness. Give up your fears and start living the dream!

  1. Buy / make decent food, plan a week in advance
  2. Walk / run 30-40 minutes a day, do other fitness activities if you like
  3. Minimize time with irritating people, maximize positive exposure
  4. Be selective with the books / movies you enjoy, pick the inspirational ones
  5. Hide / unfollow negative posts / people online. Time yourself while in cyberspace
  6. Make your home comfy: clean, fix and declutter as much as you can
  7. Love what you get, get what you love

The process of designing your life can take longer than you think. I started 2-3 years ago, some changes are obvious and some are still in progress, I wish it could be done overnight but it’s a process.

Pizza Love

Working at the pizza joint was real fun. It was awesome mostly because of our clientele. Or maybe because I was a cute foreigner who always got special treatment.  Majority of our customers were working middle class men aged 30 to 45 approximately.  They loved me just because I am. We joked around and had fun especially when the POS wasn’t off. Working a physical job was quite unusual for an educated person like me. There was a lot to learn I have to say but I aced it pretty quick.

The worst part of my job was taking phone calls, for some reason it was mostly women giving me a hard time. Don’t ask me why. The best part was the tips I will admit. People here tip like I haven’t seen anywhere else before. I also loved the start of each day as I would come early to open the store and get ready for the day. I felt so important.

I loved my job and hated it at the same time. I was definitely irreplacable, this is what I believed anyway. I worked hard and got a raise twice. But still was sure that I deserve a better position.
