When Work and Studies Collide

    No matter how good or reliable you are in your work but you ignore taking any steps for your professional growth, you will remain always at the bottom. Chances are, you will be working like a horse and your take-home pay cannot even compensate for all the stress that your work has caused you. This is the reality in my beloved Philippines. No wonder many professionals opted to work abroad where all their hard work and efforts are fairly compensated.

    As for me, I have no other choice but to embrace the system. At work, I always felt so exhausted with all those works piling on my table considering the multitasking that I have to do. I cannot leave my work and go abroad because I don't want to leave my family here. Thus, I am left with no choice other than to pursue my Master's Degree. Yes, I have already earned 30 units but I need to earn more in order to hit their goal and eventually apply for Teacher 3 (Currently I am still Teacher 1), Yes, you heard it right, earning a Master's Degree is not even a guarantee that you will be promoted right away because you need to apply for it- which means, you need to compile all the necessary documents to earn it.

    As of now, I have enrolled in 6 units and I really find it so difficult to work and study at the same time. But I am always praying for God's wisdom and strength that I could make it through! Good thing I have my sister who helped me with the expenses for my studies.

New Year, New Hope

New Year, new hope.

The pandemic is still on but let us remain resilient with the situation. We cannot control the pandemic but we can manage to remain calm amidst anxieties. Together, let us all pray for a safer, better 2021.

What awaits us this year? It depends on our daily undertakings, our daily decisions, and our daily choices. If 2020 brought us into tears, then maybe we can do something to change our 2021. What occurs in 2020 that brings us down must mold us to stand up and look forward. As long as we live, we are up for better chances-just keep the faith. If we survived 2020, there must be a reason and that reason should be good enough for us to go on- to persevere and to face life amidst adversity with hope and greater faith in God.

Happy New Year everyone!

How To Take Care of Your Skin

Skin that is not healthy and cared for tends to age more quickly. However, taking care of your skin is not just a matter of vanity. Your skin provides a protective function in preventing disease. Therefore, when your skin is not healthy, it puts the rest of your body at risk as well. Here are some tips for keeping your skin healthy and beautiful.

1. Use the Right Products

Your skin produces oils to protect it and keep it soft and moist. When you use harsh soaps, it can strip away these oils and leave your skin vulnerable. Instead, use mild cleansers and moisturizers to protect the natural oils and keep your skin hydrated. You can buy these products packaged in their own sachets Hoboken NJ.

2. Know Your Skin Type

The products that you need depend on the type of skin you have. Some people have excessively oily skin, while other people have skin that tends to dry out. Some people have combination skin that is oily in some areas and dry in others. Knowing the type of skin you have can help you choose products specifically formulated for that type.

3. Guard Against the Sun

The sun, or more specifically, the ultraviolet radiation it produces, is one of your skin's worst enemies. If you've seen how inanimate objects fade, crack, and peel in the sun, you can imagine what it is doing to your skin. You can protect yourself by staying in the shade as much as possible, wearing clothing and accessories that cover your skin, and wearing sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.

4. Don't Smoke

While ultraviolet radiation is harmful to your skin, sunlight itself can be beneficial in other ways, such as helping your body produce beneficial vitamin D. Since tobacco smoke offers no health benefits and can damage your skin in several ways, it may actually be your skin's arch-nemesis. Smoking can contribute to wrinkles in various ways. It also damages the blood vessels in your skin and puts you at risk for skin cancer.
