This realization happened nearly 2 weeks ago and this mental post has been on my mind ever since, so I suppose it’s time to end my two month hibernation.
I now work for a small office.
My office does not have recycling bins and therefore we do not recycle, so after lunch one day I decided to go . . . → Read More: When things are not mean to be
My blog has not suffered from lack of posts as much as I have suffered from reverse culture shock.
Today is the 3-week mark in my latest visit to France. It’s also the longest in… ever, actually. Never have I spent more than 2 weeks in France since I moved to the States.
This trip is different though.
It’s . . . → Read More: My Lost Frenchness
1- The lettuce I ate was always green, not white. I despise hollow-core “lettuce” that restaurants or grocery store try to sell you in their Cesar salad. Plain awful to me.
2- The largest container of soda I knew was 1 liter, maybe 1.5 liter. In the US, the individual-size packs are bottles of .75 liter. Ouch.

I lost track of time, just like that. In between my old and my new job. Then technology lost me.
Though I tried logging on from my new laptop while I was away on business travels; but I had forgotten my access codes to post to my blog! At home, they’re “saved” so I don’t have to . . . → Read More: Disconnected
It wasn’t until last month that I realized I’m always on the look out for something else. More specifically, I’m living in the anticipation of the next moment which almost always spoils the present moment.
Just when my mom was here and we visited New York, I took some days “off” (you know, vacation with a toddler, . . . → Read More: Always looking forward to something else
In my most recent Declutter Tuesday post, I promised a follow-up regarding beauty products’ expiration dates.
Shelf life can vary greatly by product type, but what’s even more surprising is the choice in showing this information (or not) to the consumer.
Let’s play a little game; what’s missing on these products…

Most of us have heard this story which explains how the things that matter to you most must take priority; then if there is room left, you can add the “rest”.
It says that if you have rocks of various sizes to fit in a jar, you’d have to put the big ones first, then position the . . . → Read More: It did not fit in my jar

Today was the day I finally decluttered my bathroom’s cabinet.
You’d think that after 3 days walking the streets of NYC and doing everything touristy, then driving back 4 hours, I’d find more comfort into finding my own bed, at last!
There is nothing like dedication, and since we’re Tuesday, I did my homework. It’s very possible nobody . . . → Read More: Declutter Tuesday – Beauty products nonsense
These past two weeks have been marked by change, or at the very least the premise of many changes ahead!
I quit my job.
I gave my notice at the end of last week, and told my coworkers and clients that I was leaving the fundraising industry to get on a completely different path.
Their response was so positive . . . → Read More: Lucky Me
