5 TED talks by Women of Colour, that Changed my Perspective

5 TED talks by Women of Colour, that Changed my Perspective

For the past 2 years, reading blogs about fun new inspiring things has been my go to pass time. But I’ve been trying to see what else is out there. I started listening to podcasts like The Read, and the Receipts. They were engaging relatable and all in all hilarious, but I wasn’t getting what I needed from them. That’s when I started looking around for TEDtalks. Continue reading “5 TED talks by Women of Colour, that Changed my Perspective”

My New York City Tips

My New York City Tips

Just 2 weeks ago I posted about my trip to New York City. Although I gave you a rundown of what we got up to, I wanted to follow up with sharing things I wish I knew before going. As a first time visitor, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. I learned the basics through people that had already been but there were things I didn’t learn until I got there. These are tips that could help you save time and money! We all know how valuable those two things are, especially when you’re on vacation.

Journaling: How to do it productively

Journaling: How to do it productively

In the past few months, I’ve managed to organize my thoughts, goals and ambitions in one little notebook. I began to write in my journal in early 2017 but I wasn’t very good at putting aside the time for it. I would lose focus and interest easily. When I had first started, I was focusing too much on making my journal perfect. I wanted it to be colourful, neat and pretty. I would spend more time doodling than I would expressing my feelings. After a while it got boring, and when I put my journal down I never managed to pick it up again until July of this year.

Weekend Away in New York City

Weekend Away in New York City

Although my birthday was 3 months ago I figured I’d share the exciting things I got to do. This years birthday was extra special! A couple friends and I flew to New York City on the weekend before my birthday. While planning this trip I made sure to watch as many youtube videos and read as many blogs as I could. I really wanted to know what there was to do and see. I’m also a sucker for restaurants so I spent a lot of time looking into where to get good food. Taking a look at what other people did when they visited the Big Apple was super helpful.

This post is basically just one big recap of the weekend we spent in NYC. I’ve included the restaurants we ate at, the places we went and even the cost for somethings (just to give you an idea of how much you’d need).

A Year in the Life of Rurutatyana.com

Happy new year! I hope everyone has enjoyed this holiday season.

For the sake of lil personal update: This month has been a time of reflection for me. I’ve been thinking a lot about where I am, where I’m going and how I’m going to try to get there. I’ve focused on loving my mind, body and soul. Therefore, I’ve tried to only focus on things that bring positivity to me. If someone had told me that seeing the good in everything was as tiring as it is, maybe I wouldn’t have done it. But the reality is that not everything is perfect and I’ve had to really find those positive aspects. This past year I have worked incredibly hard to be where I’m and I’m very happy with that.
