“We convinced ourselves that we were investing in something, when all we were doing was excusing our cowardice.”
One of my friends moved to Berlin when she was 21. She dropped out of a shitty state college where she was pursuing a degree in communications (with a minor in music, for good measure), and left. She didn’t get a proper visa and only had about 1500 dollars to her name when she went, sleeping on a friend’s couch “until she got on her feet.” She did their chores and cooked them dinner and kept her little space as clean as possible.
We all made fun of her before she left, mostly behind her back, but occasionally to her face. “What is she going to do over there? Be a hooker?” the more callous friends would ask. Once I told her, “I’m just worried about you. I don’t think you’re thinking this through.” She smiled at me and told me that she had thought it through, but that there…

To be inspired is certainly one of the secret in writing regardless of what kind of topic that should work on. It’s hard to keep that sense of being inspired but definitely the following tips will be a good start.
1. Think Deep – seriously, this is one of the frustrating thing since you cannot be that sure on what path you are going. The idea that there will definitely a lot of things that might run on you mind. That is why you have to think with depth just before you start writing anything.
2. Think of Something Funny – it is definitely that hard to write with a really serious mood in mind. It might get in your way if you stressed yourself up with lots of stuff. Take things slowly and thing of some funny things to survive the loads of frustrations

With all the chaos in the world, sometimes it is easy to lose hope and invite negative forces. It is easy to choose depression over happiness. But this should not be the scenario in life. I always choose to be happy though sometimes it’s really hard because of the complexities of my life. The people around me seems to be really depress and I’m making some ways to make them feel that happiness is always around the corner. I want to share these ways to you in the hope of making people happy and optimistic in the end.
1. You must believe that optimistic attitude is a choice – It’s really hard to make yourself choose this one. Do not blame others or things that causes depression and negativity in your life. You must choose to teach yourself the positive attitude. Even if you are in bad situation, you will always have the choice to choose the positive side of the things.
2. Look for an inspiration – This one will help you to look forward and never bother to see the past. Choose something that will inspire you to reach your goal. Something that makes you excited everyday. Or better yet, find someone who will inspire you to make things better for yourself. This ain’t bad, right?
3. Share your optimism and joy – “Happiness only real when shared.” This quote is from Christopher McCandless, Into the Wild. I always believe that happiness must be shared to make it more memorable and more fun. Share what makes you happy. Share your positive attitude with other people so that they can perceive life as a happy one.
There is no use to live life on negative things, it will only make you cry and depress. Always choose happiness for your life. Make sure you live your life full of optimism.

Every morning as I wake up, I thank God for another wonderful day of my life. And remind myself of these things:
* Before I do my work for the day, I tell to myself…
* When I start writing my masterpiece…
* When I think of things that I am lack of…
* As I lose confidence with myself…
* The last but not the least…

The job of an executive assistant may differ greatly from one organization to another. The exact work detail for this line of job is based on the organization of the business where the assistant is employed and the level of assistance that the executive needs from the assistant.

An executive assistant usually handles communication, organizes information, prepares email and calls, plans events, set travel preparations and general managerial duties.
Contrary to what you see in movies, an executive assistant job does not always entail flashy travels and celebrated meetings. Her everyday job is clerical in nature. Executive assistants are usually in charge of managing their boss’ paperwork. Paperwork may include creating letters, documents, collecting and evaluating information.

Supervision of other assistants

Every writer, whether professional nor a newbie, has a lot of dreams. I believe that not only writers but even those people who are in different fields. As a young writer, my dreams are quite high. I want all of it to come true but I don’t know when and how. I guess many of us have this problem. We have many things in mind that we want to do but we don’t know where to start and how to do it. The enemies of writers why they can’t get what they want or achieve their dream are fear, lack of self-confidence, and lack of perseverance. If you really want to achieve something or reach all your goals in life we should not be afraid to fail, to commit mistakes, and be doubtful of our skills. Let’s dream big and aim high. Start from dreaming of what you want to become then start doing something to get in there.
I want to share you the dreams that I want to achieve in the near future. And I hope that you do the same.
This is what every writer wants, right? I am not sure with you but for me, writing a book and be able to publish it is on the top of my dream list.
Someday… I will get my bags and travel around the world. I will write everything about the place, people, and culture that I have been to and share it to the world.
To have my own writer’s space.
They say this only happens in stories or in books. I don’t care if this thing doesn’t exist in reality, but I still believe that it can come true. (hopefully)
