6 years ago I went to Brunel University for a Computing Taster Day, having not decided what I was going to do at uni yet or what uni to go to, but that day I decided both those things!
Crazy how time flies, I’ve finished my degree and am working in tech, if it wasn’t for events like that I don’t know where I’d be or what I would have done. That’s why putting effort back into promoting STEM has best interest for everybody!
My week summed up: Early mornings, awful drives home, free lunch and nice work campus walks 🤓
Now for the weekend, seeing my boyfriend and relaxing before doing it all again next week!
It’s with great pleasure (and amazement) that I say I have over 1500+ followers over 4 social media platforms, but I’d love to grow this even further, so that IT Girl can try to help one more girl out there into STEM and to grow a bigger network at the same time. So please share http://www.TashaITGirl.com on any platform you see fit, or if you have any ideas it would be great to collaborate with 🤓 Thank you x
How are you feeling ready for this week ahead?
My morning routine usually consists of a cup of tea and a scroll through social media, like a true millennial, before cracking down on the To Do lists I set myself containing both personal and professional tasks. What’s your routine and do you feel it’s working?
Be the best version of yourself this week 💪🏻
Thanks to some great personalised ads on Instagram, a website was shown to me called Career Girls Daily and since stumbling across this a few days ago I’ve already ordered their “Getting Things Done” planner and been regularly reading posts on their website. I came across this post by Josefin Dahlberg, called What’s On My Desk? and thought that would be a great thing for me to share with you about what’s on my desk…
Sometimes I love to work on my bed under my duvet, especially if I’m at home working with my cats (who sometimes like to lay on my laptop in a very unhelpful manner).
But when I’m at university and have a lot of work to do, I’m always at my desk where I have a second screen so I can have multiple pages open… or watch TV on 1 screen whilst I work on the other. In true British fashion, I always have a cup of tea present in one of my many humorous mugs, as well as, a bottle of water. I have post-it notes everywhere of little reminders or thoughts that I’ve had and therefore, I have an emoji poop mug with colourful pens in so I am every ready. A desk lamp and fairy lights to create a cosy ambiance on those late working nights. But most importantly, I have pictures of my family and friends on the pin board on the wall behind my desk, so when I am struggling to find motivation I can always look at them for support.
Creating a good environment for how you work is really important 🙂
