I know it has been a while since I talked to you all. I have become pretty busy. I've been working as a remote stylist since April, and I'm having so much fun with it. I've always wanted a job in fashion where I can be involved in fashion, design as well as give style advice, and work from the comfort of my own home. I must say that I'm doing all of those. Being a remote stylist is so rewarding to me because I get to help people create their perfect wardrobe, style for special occasions, and help people build confidence (one thing I've noticed is that when people get new outfits, especially dresses, they feel better about themselves). Although I love working from home, the one challenge I have is time management.
Time management has always been a struggle with me because I'm trying to find time to do one thing, then switch to do the other. Even with a calendar or planner, things do not work out when it comes to time management. I've even tried to do a "to do list", and it still doesn't work. Time management is complicated to me because not only do I work from home, but I'm also an adjunct professor, and I'm still trying to work on grading for school, and working from home. In addition to that, I'm trying to make time to design as well. I don't want to burn myself, which is why I take breaks from time to time. One thing I've decided to do is to work from home in the morning, and have the remainder of the day to grade and design. This is something that I know I have to tackle, and I'm determined to get it right.
Well, I have to start grading again. I will continue to check in with you to remain in touch.
