Stained Couture’s weekly series, Link-End Round-Up, features interesting reads I read from around the internet this week.
First Friday of August!
Last month, I was all about trying to get my life on track. For August, I want to focus on time management – I’ve been failing at it these past few weeks. I’ve been trying to accustom to my new schedule and juggling all of my responsibilities. This is the reason that I haven’t been posting as consistently as I’m accustomed to doing.
Trying to juggle managing a blog, freelance jobs, and a full-time job can be tedious. However, once I figure out a schedule, I’ll be okay – I’ve done it before.
My focus for this month is time management, but my focus for this weekend is peace. I’ve had a stressful week that started with me paying around $700 to replace my radiator, because my A/C went out in my car last week. Plot twist: my A/C still doesn’t work and now I need to replace my A/C compressor or something or another that’s going to cost me almost $1000. Ha.
That’s a dilemma that me in 2 weeks will have to ponder paying to get done. Now that I’ve found a good waterproof makeup routine and don’t spend much time in my car, I might be able to hold this off for awhile. We’ll see.
This weekend, I want to the less stuff, as possible. I’m thinking binging this season of Big Brother while eating snacks – everything I was supposed to do last weekend instead of buying a new radiator.
Let’s hope we all have a chill and stress-free weekend. Please enjoy the links in the week’s Link-End Round-Up.
