The Beauty Of The 2000's

The Beauty Of The 2000's

21 Nostalgic Things That Will Make You Miss The 2000's!

The 2000's were the best time for 90’s babies. At least it was for me. I was born in 1998 so I did not get to enjoy the gadgets and style of the 90s however I can confidently say I enjoyed my childhood through the 2000's. The 2000's brought us some of the greatest songs such as Single Ladies by Beyonce, Milkshake by Kelis, and Lose Yourself by Eminem. Along with the music, the dances were unforgettable. I could not go to a party without the DJ playing Crank That Soulja Boy, You’re a Jerk, Walk It Out, and Chicken Noodle Soup.

Children today will never understand how great the entertainment was during the 2000's. The premiere of That's So Suite Life Of Hannah Montana and The Jimmy Timmy Power Hour were the greatest crossovers in TV history! In honor of the 2000's nostalgia I’m having right now, why not create a list of all the things that represent the beauty of that decade.

5 Quick Tips To Improve Your Focus And Time Management Skills

Here are five easy tips that helped my sense of productivity along the way.


Lately, I've been pretty disappointed in my time management skills. I've been struggling to not only maintain all of my obligations but also my sense of joy while completing each task. And although I'd love to rain check on my responsibilities, I know that extended mental vacations are not a beneficial solution for long-term purposes. With this in mind, I've recently observed the ways that I manage my time as well as the methods I use to better improve my work ethic.
As a result of my personal inventory, I decided to make a brief list of tricks that I use to better improve my time management skills and focus.

1. Find articles that encourage organization

I've been reading articles about managing obligations and discovering cool methods to better organize my life. A specific blog post that I've found helpful is "Get Your Life Together Tools" by Mariah Dyson. This brief article is extremely easy to read and filled with useful apps to help readers stay focus on their tasks at hand. The link to this gem is below:

2. Listen to a podcast that you enjoy

If you're anything like me, you probably work best with background noise. Now, while I love my Netflix account, I've recently discovered that binge-watching my favorite shows is only a distraction when I'm trying to meet a deadline. So, instead of compromising my focus I've recently decided to save my favorite podcasts episodes for when I'm bogged down with work.

3. Approach your 'to-do' list with positive perspective

THIS IS A MAJOR ONE FOR ME! I have a terrible habit of complaining about my workload. And while it's easy to murmur about my obligations the effects of my comments are detrimental. I've been purposely replacing the phrase "I have to" with "I get to," to remind myself that every obligation is a blessing. I'm blessed to have a job and opportunities to fulfill.

4. Color-code your planner to better prioritize your day

I learned this trick while working on my bachelor's degree and honey, please believe me when I say that this tip alone saved my undergraduate experience. I'm a huge advocate for visual representation, and having my planner organized by color is a quick way to check in and manage my priorities throughout a hectic day.

5. Manage your progress

Lately, I've been taking great joy in checking off tasks from my "to-do list." Again, being a fan of visualization, it's rewarding to know that I've completed yet another task. This technique also serves as a healthy dose of encouragement to keep on trekking along, because the reality is if you could buckle down to achieve your goals once before, you can certainly do it again.

If anything, I hope that this list leaves you with healthy options to consider, when trying to tackle a stressful day.
