A combined morning cereal

Did you know for a fun fact that the most common breakfast to consume are cereals! Well, don’t look at me, I have just read it from ShakeUpYourWakeup.com‘s Breakfast Facts page. It sounds very common, doesn’t it? Probably not everywhere across the globe, but I believe cereals are the best way to start your day especially if you’re a student. But I think it is great for anybody.

So, after years of having cereals for breakfast, I decided to make some changes of my own. Being independent has encouraged me to try  almost anything, wacky, lame or not.
I have introduced to myself and a few people I know, my so-called ‘combined morning cereal’ recipes.
I have found it to be quite filling  and energetic that even a light lunch would be sufficient to help me sustain the required vividness for the day.
That being said, I am going to introduce you to three of my simple combined cereal recipes:

Weekend Edition – Writing is My “Real” Job

I believe I can make this happen for myself. All I’ve got to do is keep writing. 🙂

Live to Write - Write to Live

“Real” is overrated.

pin opinion and perspectiveWhen someone asks what you do, how do you answer? Does the label “writer” trip lightly off the tip of your tongue, or do you keep that identity to yourself and instead talk about your day job?

When asked what I “do,” I usually say that I’m a messaging strategist and content marketer (and, then I have to explain what the heck that means).

Opportunity Cost, an important lesson

Alright, so for those who are business professionals or even anybody familiar with the term ‘opportunity cost’, according to Investopedia.com, “An opportunity cost is the cost of an alternative that must be forgone in order to pursue a certain action. Put another way, the benefits you could have received by taking an alternative action.”

This doesn’t necessarily have to relate to the business area. It could be applicable on daily life situations. For example, the best way applied to myself, is in fact, my part time job as a shift manager. I work at a convenience store; not the cleverest job you may think, but for an undergrad, that means a lot.
The opportunity cost of this decision was something big enough for any ordinary student to crave for: time.
Students at a university don’t always want to spend the little available time doing work. They would expect to go out, pursue a hobby, etc.
My parents didn’t really want me to do a job either, especially considering the time I get back home, which is about half eleven at night. But is it worth it?
