It’s the end of the month and that means it is time to have a look back at what I have been up to this month. Like last month, it was a month with some ups and some downs.

While I am no expert, people seemed to enjoy that blog post and I like sharing what I have learned by sharing my experiences. If there is one thing I struggled with when I first hit the job market was balancing my job and my personal life. Working a job was very different from doing a full time study course, with several jobs on the side. While busy too, I quickly realized that doing the same thing for 40 hours a week requires a very different way of structuring my life. Here’s what I realized and what I did to maintain a good work/ life balance.
