Welcome to Aspiring Superwoman!

25 Mar

Hello and welcome to Aspiring Superwoman! As this is my first blog post and I probably no one is reading this so it feels a little bit awkward but everyone must start somewhere so here I go!

My name is Faren, I am in my mid-twenties and I live in Toronto, Canada. I’ve decided to start this blog for all of the people in their mid-twenties out there who feel like their life is supposed to end up a certain way but don’t know how they’re going to get there! As a young woman, I feel (and I know I’m not alone on this!) that in the next 5-10 years I’m somehow supposed to forge a career for myself, get married and have kids all at the same time! I’ve seen other amazing women do this before and to me they are superwomen. Therefore, the following reasons are why I feel that I am an Aspiring Super Woman:

1) I am currently studying for my GMAT so that I can go back to school to pursue my MBA. With an undergraduate degree in English, this is not something I ever foresaw myself doing but spending my last year in the working world has showed me that this is not only something that will make me more marketable but is also becoming a necessity.

2.) On top of studying for my GMAT and working, I am volunteering for my second year for a major event that helps raise money for cancer research.

3) I enjoy working out, especially spinning and yoga, but have a very difficult time balancing this into my lifestyle. Being healthy is extremely important to me though and also a necessity in becoming a Superwoman.

4)I love spending time with my family, friends and amazing boyfriend and always try to be conscious to keep my time with all of them as equal as possible.

So there you have it folks, my first entry into what I hope will become an enjoyable blog for people to follow for many years to come. If any one is reading this yet, what makes you an aspiring Superwoman/Superman? I would love to hear your feedback!
