My 9 to 5

Three more days until Mexico. Three more days. I hope I can make it three more days!

After seeing Jeannie wear her floral dress this weekend I decided to bring out my floral skirt for today's outfit. I think its stretched and gotten a little big on me but then again.. I don't want to be bulging out of this skirt.

Today's writing of the day prompt is about what I do for work. I currently work at an IT staffing/recruiting firm as an HR Analyst. This is my second year of working in HR and I love it. The majority of my duties include helping to run on and off-boarding initiatives as well as running benefits for the company, employee relations, documentation, and any other day to day things that my boss needs.

I'm incredibly lucky in the sense that I have a fantastic team of coworkers who put up with me asking tons of questions on a daily basis and are also helping me to further my career. HR is not always the easiest thing to do. I often get a little nervous when communicating confidential information to people, especially across email so I double and triple check my work on a daily basis.

I'm also going to be enrolling in a continuing education course through UC Berkeley to get my HR Management certificate so that will start to take up some spare time. For once though I feel as if I really truly like what I do because it makes me think.

What do you do for a career?


  1. This is one of my favorite skirts from last year and it looks great on you! It's wonderful that you are continuing your education through UC Berkeley even though you will have less free time to spare.

  2. Fantastic! Have so much fun in Mexico! Thanks for the link love! :)

  3. I wouldn't be able to function knowing a trip to Mexico was so close! I love the chambray/floral combo and getting to know more about you and your work!
