Two Year Work Anniversary

Two years ago today I attended an orientation in midtown Manhattan that would change my life. That orientation of course was for Time Warner Cable. I went in without the slightest idea of what would ultimately become my main source of income and full time job for the past two years. Since then I have learned a lot and grown in many ways - professionally, socially, and financially.

It's not hard to imagine that I've poured my heart and soul into my job working everyday and improving upon my skill set as a Client Services Specialist. Yes, that means I'm two years older, but also two years wiser and more mature than ever. I realize that work has meaning and is important in just more an economic sense. A job gives me sense of self worth and it gives me a greater appreciation of time more specifically what I do on weekends.

I had to make the best of it with my limited free time on the weekends . For example, I love travel so much so that I traveled around for three months late last year and I had a wonderful time doing it. And because of my steady paycheck I could afford it. Travel is one of the best things that you can do in your life. It gives you the ability to live in the moment and also forces you in a good way to learn about other cultures. Work is empowering and I am thankful that my job gave me the ability to travel.

In addition, to a steady income and travel, my job has fueled my strong ambitions. And ambition as we guys all know is what drives a woman wild. I consider myself to be an ambitious person. I go into work everyday thinking today is the day I prove everyone that has doubted me wrong that much more. The ones who underestimated, ridiculed, and belittled me to a point where I got insecure and started to doubt myself. That feeling of insecurity and helplessness fades away each day as I accomplish more and more at work. Now, that is an amazing feeling because overcoming adversity is always a challenge.

So even though I live in the moment here's to my next two years of continued professional success at Time Warner Cable. P.S To anyone from Time Warner Cable they already know that I would like to assume more responsibilities and interview for a position with greater role in the decision making process and direction of the company.

University of Cincinnati Master of Science Degree Diploma

It's official! Today, I received my diploma from the University of Cincinnati. I can't express how happy and proud I am of my Master of Science degree. I told my mom, my aunt, my dad and basically everyone on my social media. I even tweeted my diploma photo to Santa Ono, the President of the University of Cincinnati, and even got a congratulatory reply from him and the official UC Twitter account. So it's been an awesome Saturday.

Here is a pic of my University of Cincinnati diploma.



Holiday Tradition

The holidays are just around the corner. It's the best time of the year for sure. But the holidays can go by really quickly. I mean, it's going to be Halloween on Monday already! Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be here and we'll all be eating Turkey with our families. Then just like that we'll be opening up presents on Christmas and ringing in 2017 on New Year's.

Some families have holiday traditions. I want to start a holiday tradition where we help out the less fortunate. Everyday is a struggle for each one of us but at least we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads. There are just way too many people on the streets hungry and freezing. We shouldn't let this go on. Not on our watch.

With the power of the internet we can achieve so much in so little time. We can use this power to help others. We don't even have to spend our own money. Did you know that there are free donation sites out there right now that you can visit everyday and donate for fr…
