Its okay to feel the way you are feeling especially with all the things happening all around the world and I personally feel that we deserve a break between the pandemic and the war between Russia and Ukraine but here we are.

In 2017, I joined my husband, who moved to Germany for work, 3 months before me. I had experience in Sales and Marketing in a financial institution and so I started the job search almost immediately. I later decided to study for my Masters after getting to know the immense benefit of studying in Germany which I will share with you in this blog post. There are different types of of University in German. The first one is called a normal German universities (Universität in German), the second is called University of Applied Science (Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften in German) and the third one is called Academy of Music, Art and film. The main difference is that, Universities are a research driven institution and they focus on theory more than practical whereas the university of Applied Science focus on application of research. So, if you are looking to study courses like engineering and courses that are really hands-on, University of Applied sciences might be what you want. On
If you are a new mom, sleep is one of your major concerns right now and I want you to know that you are not alone. Majority of babies who sleep through the night in the first few weeks are minute and are exceptions compared to the babies who do not which is normal. I will like to share my story to encourage you that sleep is not linear and it gets better. Since birth, my baby never slept through the night.

I later learnt that this was due to the fact that he is exclusively breastfeeding and so once it is time to move to another sleep cycle, he needs to breastfeed as that is how he knows how to sleep. I wasn’t getting enough sleep at night and even during the day. I then started looking for solutions because it was really getting to me and almost driving me insane. Also note that due to the pandemic, our parents and family couldn’t visit so it was just my husband and I. My husband works from home and I
Hey blog fam. Welcome back. Glad to have you here. So today, I will be sharing how I get productive as a mom schooling and working from home. I am currently studying for my Masters degree in Berlin, Germany. I have a 1 year old son who is super active and always on the move. He is yet to start creche and so he is mostly home all day. My husband on the other hand, works from home due to the pandemic and is mostly in meetings. So due to this, I am left with myself to run around with my son. Having a child is a totally different phase as one has to also combine it with life’s goals and ambition. I decided to find a way around this as the days are turning into weeks and weeks into months. Coming up with a productive schedule was the only way to make sure I got things done. Another reason why I had to come up with a productive schedule is because, before now, my son will take 3 naps during the day and so I had time to go back to lectures I missed and also do other things. However, as he gre
