Work Hard – Play Hard

Fall in London, UK

You may have noticed that the posts have been slowing down a bit here at 100 Miles Highway. Ever since I went back to student life at the end of September, my schedule has changed radically. Now, after 5 hours of lectures and a 1 hour journey back home, I take out my computer and continue work at home. Having my laptop in front of me means I need to research, draw and write for my next project. Then, each time we give a live pitch, adrenaline rushes through my body, and as soon as we’re done, it’s a call for celebration!

I work hard and play hard – and I LOVE it.

I know it’s possible to combine studying, socializing, exercising, traveling and blogging… but I’m still learning to find the right equilibrium. I’m definitely not done with my Chinese Adventure, and I haven’t stopped traveling either – I flew to Berlin and Geneva last month!

In the meantime, I really appreciate you still following along.

    I have been working too hard and not playing very hard :-(

    Very difficult to find the balance.
