Sound Off: Workplace Depression, Yes It’s Real

In September it will be a year since I’ve resigned from my full-time, salaried corporate job. While I’m freelancing and doing other things now and my pay fluctuates I don’t regret my decision. Why? Imagine walking into a place everyday that you couldn’t escape because it was your means of survival. You get a sick feeling each and every time you arrive, yet you stick around hoping it’ll change. Could it be workplace depression? Is your job actually a trigger? Is this possible?

How I’m Using My Happy Planner Micro Happy Notes

Happy Planner rolls out new items left and right, it’s as if their planner sizes keep getting smaller. It started out with the classic, then the BIG Happy Planner, the mini, now there’s the half size and the baby- the micro. I told myself that I wouldn’t buy the micro notes since it’s just an easy DIY, but the design that I chose stood out to me and I couldn’t leave it behind.
