Solving your #FirstJobProblems with Sun Postpaid Best Value Plan 599

So you have just joined the ranks of the employed adults of society. You are starting to feel good about yourself, proud even. The world is your oyster and the opportunities for you are endless. Then you start to realize that your education has not prepared you enough for many of the challenges that you are about to face as you make this important transition in your life.

#FirstJobProblems

1. Starting at the bottom of the food chain. Unless you are an heir to a management post in a company that your family owns, you will most definitely get an entry-level job which often requires long hours, low pay, and a lot of monotonous work.
Some fresh graduates have turned up their noses at these jobs or quit right away because they feel that they can do better. One thing they fail to realize is the opportunity for learning. Sometimes, the most valuable lessons that will help you later in life, you will have learned when you were still just starting up. If anything, it will make you understand the business better and hone your skills before you start taking on bigger responsibilities. If you want to move up fast, always come to work prepared – read up about your tasks online, set a calendar alarm and a to-do list on your mobile so you will be sure to beat all your deadlines.

2. Balancing work demands with personal life. So you have to miss the next big Zedd event because sadly, you have a shift that night and you have just used up your last sick day or family emergency excuse. You don’t have to feel left out as you can always keep up with your friends via Snapchat or Viber. Virtual partying isn’t bad and it doesn’t give you hangovers.

If you have to spend long hours at work, keep in touch with your family or your jealous boyfriend via text message or even a quick Skype video call during your break.

That said, I do believe in value for my money. Sometimes, more expensive things aren’t exactly better. And sometimes, brands can have all the right gimmicks, image, and publicity but their service remains intolerable. This is the reason why it is important to always spend smart and choose better especially on services that affect our daily lives.

Budget-friendly tips for an awesome weekend

P200 isn’t much these days especially if you plan to hang out with your friends. Going to the mall, watching a movie, eating your favorite meals usually mean a huge dent on your budget. So what you can do instead on a lazy weekend is invite a few friends over, watch movies or tv series on iflix, and prepare some budget-friendly grub that you can all enjoy.

My friends love my home-cooked adobo but this week, we decided to pretend that we were healthy and prepared something different. Armed with some leftover strawberries from Baguio and fruits from the local market, we threw together what eventually became our new favorite weekend snack – Banana Cheesecake Watermelon Pizza!
