Back to work!

YOU create your own possibilities

Guys, guess what I’m doing today!!! I’m gonna start working a little bit again, after nearly a year of being on the sick list full time. I’ll take it really slowly in the beginning, and will just be at work a couple of hours every day. I’m pumped, excited, but also nervous in some way. Just like it “should” be, I guess.

At least, I’m not gonna work with stressful deadlines and have any direct contact with customers in the beginning. Instead, I am going to work within the company, such as, promoting it in on social media. Gonna be so much fun! I love social media, and to be able to work with it, is awesome. Like a dream. I feel so creative and inspired right now.

So from now on, I’ll work a tiny bit again, and I think we all (my therapist, mentor, Liz, the doctor, my job, and I) all have a great plan for me. And I’m gonna start saying that my position at work is not only as a Graphic Designer, but also as a Social Media Coordinator.

Good stuff lately

New stuff.

Liz came home with a surprise package yesterday. What an amazing wife I have ♥ I wore the earrings directly when I went to a kick off party with my job last night, and gosh, I love them. The t-shirt will be ready to be worn on Monday, but more about that day then! *Cliffhanger*.

Hope you’re having a great weekend!

TV Series

September 1, 2016

September is here and I think it’s time for me to share my long list of TV-series here on the blog!

header_series

I call it part 1, because there will most likely, one day, be a part 2, 3 and so forth. I try to choose series by the words from friends and family, but also from the points at imdb. If it’s 8.5/10, it’s usually pretty good, I think..but there are some, I haven’t gotten into that has around 9…and a few around 7/10, that I’ve liked as well..so you never know exactly how it’s gonna be. I also always try to give a new series a few episodes in, before I decide whether to finish it or not. If I decide to not finish it, I might come back to it a few months later, and I get really in to it. So I just don’t judge it, by one seating. If you happen to sit with any good tips on any new ones, hit me up! So let’s start this. It’s in alphabetical order and all pics are from imdb.com. The short infos come from imdb as well.
