My 40 Life Lessons

Well, it’s my birthday! Not quite sure when that happened but yeah, I turn another year older today. *yikes!*  I’m pretty sure it was just yesterday that I got myself into my first job interview, got hired, and worked myself to the top to provide the best life possible for my family, especially my mom.

And since I’ve been thinking of a workspace make-over, I’ve been checking out different workspace inspo for it, so let’s! Black and white, with a dash of gold and peach, my friends....

Mechanical Soft Diet, Confinement, and Me
