Life Update | Balancing Blog, Social Media and a Full-Time Job

Life UpdateHello everyone! I can’t believe we are in the middle of January already. I really hope 2019 doesn’t go as fast as 2018 did.

They say that as you get older. times goes by faster. And I 100% agree with that. But there are times that I really wish that wasn’t the case. Because it makes me feel old, and it makes me feel like I don’t enjoy each moment like I should. Ok, I’m rambling too much.

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you a little life update. And explain how my life has been for the past month. And how I’m balancing my full-time job, all of my social media and blog. Which is A LOT!

I got a job as a fashion designer at Oysho (which is a sister brand of Zara) last month. Tomorrow I’ll make a month working with them exactly.

It definitely has been a ride. Especially because I need time to plan my content, and create all of the photos to have daily posts on Instagram scheduled. And whatever content I need for my upcoming blog posts. And time is exactly what I don’t have anymore.

Of course, my full-time job is my priority. It’s my profession, and what I studied for. And it’s how I make a living. I don’t have my blog or social media monetized yet. So of course, those have to go in second place.

But photography + my blog are my hobbies. And I really enjoy it to the degree of keeping everything up and running. No matter the struggles I have to face to create all of this content on the weekends.

So basically, I’m working from Monday to Sunday. But I love it!

I don’t have time to work on my blog throughout the week, because my job schedule is from 9:30 AM to 6:30 PM. But Oysho is not in Barcelona City. It is located in a small town called Tordera. And I have a 1+ hours bus ride to get there. So I’m up from 6:45 AM and I arrive home around 8:15 PM. These are a lot of hours. And I arrive home completely and utterly exhausted. That’s why I can’t get myself to work more than that throughout the week.

On the weekends, I wish I could rest and spend quality time with my boyfriend, to be honest. But I use that time to create next week’s content.

Having said all of this, I think it is really obvious that I don’t have the physical time to continue with the schedule I had planned for my Youtube Channel.

I feel so sorry for this because I was really excited about creating video content. But it is not possible anymore. I have other priorities now. So that’s how it’s gonna be.

You can find new content here on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s and daily on Instagram. And if by any reason I go MIA, you know it’s because I’m busy or utterly exhausted to function.

Thank you for your understanding! xx
