The 54th Deadline: Buying Your Look

The 54th Deadline: Buying Your Look

The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right.  How one looks, as in how they dress, says a lot about them in a moment’s notice. At the very least, you can assume so much about someone based solely on their perceived financial class. Someone dressed nicely could be well-off or higher. Someone who dresses modestly or lower could be on the poorer end. Obviously, it is not nice to judge,…

The 54th Deadline: Luxury

The 54th Deadline: Luxury

“We all should count the blessings in our lives, but certainly having money makes a difference.” I have never been “rich” before, nor have I really experienced what it is like to be even “well-off” growing up. My parents both worked paycheck-to-paycheck jobs, and this meant money was limited. Especially when I was younger, you could rule out random luxuries like cable television, exciting vacations out of state or anything of that sort. Sure, not getting these kind of things…

Consistent Routine

Consistent Routine

It has been quite the process to get back into the swing of things with a consistent schedule every week, where things have to be prioritized as obligations. I have much less free time now, but it feels good to be productive and busy. However, I believe I need to sort my activities throughout the week and get more done to increase my sense of accomplishment. At times, I feel like I could be finishing up many more projects. Oh well,…

Using Your Available Capital

Using Your Available Capital

I came across this article that advocates for women to use their “beauty capital” to get ahead in the workplace. Simply put, the article made a lot of sense to me. In this world, it’s best to use whatever cards you can play, and for women who strut their beauty capital, it is no different. Sure, people these days could argue that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover or beauty is only skin deep, but who are we kidding?…
