Getting Back Into Using Audible

Hello everybody!
Today, I’ll be talking to you about Audible, my original experience using it and how and why I’m now getting back into it.

For those of you who may not know, Audible is a site where you can listen to books which have been recorded by the author themselves, or by someone who was hired to read the books.

When I first tried Audible

2015 was the first time I tried Audible. My reasons for trying it were to hope I’d get to read β€” or in this case, listen β€” more books.
Since my teenage years, I’ve always had an on/off relationship with reading. I could binge read three books and then not read for a year. Which sucked, because I own so many books I’d like to read and enjoy.
I started listening to one book. Couldn’t get into it. Exchanged it for another. Bored by it. In the end, I deleted the app and didn’t get back to it.

Why I got back into Audible

When it comes to blogging, and other writing work. I find that I’m most productive with some form of background noise. Be it streams, music, or audio books.

I thought if I was going to listen to audio books, I needed to find ones I wanted to listen to.

And I’ve found what I want to listen to.

I’ve been genuinely interested in learning about business recently. So I figured the best way to get learning would be to listen to books I may find interesting.

So far, I’ve listened to one β€” review coming soon β€” got another to go, and also an autobiography.

And to be completely honest? I’m very much looking forward to starting the next two books.

I can listen through my computer, or download it on my phone and go from there. I didn’t think I’d enjoy it as much as I expected to.

Are you a fan of books? Be it physical, digital, or audio. What are you currently reading, or hoping to soon start?

Until next time,
Surviving Millennial.

How I Found Blogtober

Hello everybody!
After a short post-blogtober break, I’m finally back with the content. Although let’s be honest, I was lost after no longer needing to stress over the final blogtober posts. I needed to get back to work pronto.

I’ve been doing what I can to get back into projects I’d unintentionally abandoned, but I didn’t want to stay away from blogging for too long. Continue reading “How I Found Blogtober”

Plans For Post-Blogtober Break 29/31

If there’s one thing blogtober has left me, it’s drained.
The amount of mental work that goes into this challenge is insane, and I cannot believe I’ve made it to the end. But boy, am I ready for some time off.

When I realised I wasn’t going to be as organised as I’d hoped, I knew I’d need to take a short amount of time off at the beginning of November. Let myself rest and get ready to dive back into my three post a week schedule.

But even though my break will be from blogging itself – and don’t worry, it’s only a short break – I have some things in mind that I’d like to be doing. Continue reading “Plans For Post-Blogtober Break 29/31”

Qualified Nail Technician 15/31

For those of you who don’t know me outside of my blog, you’ll most likely not know the fact that I’m a fully qualified nail technician.

I got all prepared, buying all the things I needed to set up on my own, even creating my own business cards. Only to not go through with it. Followed by barely using the products since. Continue reading “Qualified Nail Technician 15/31”

Career Goals

Career Goals.

I’ve had many throughout growing up. I’ve even had times where I’ve had no idea, but schools pressured you into believing that you must know exactly what you want to do.

I thought I’d give a short and sweet post on some of my own career goals.
These may not all be set in stone, or might even change somewhat over time. But as of right now, here’s what I’m aiming for.

How I Ensure I Drink Enough Water

Consuming enough water was something I never used to be bothered about at a younger age. I’d have a glass on hand at night and I’d always have a full bottle at school, but other than that I’d stick to drinking juices, fizzy drinks, tea’s, and then maybe water – should I fancy it.

Over the last year to year and a half, however, I have come to be more focused and interested in consuming the correct amount of water my body needs. Continue reading “How I Ensure I Drink Enough Water”
