my first job in social media

As you all might know by now i am a new and social media student at the RLabs Academy and yesterday i had the oppurtunity to assist one of my facilitators(Tamzin Martin who Owns Bizxnet:a social media training company) with one of her workshops man did i have fun. Because of all my knowledge i've gained at the RLabs i was then able to apply that and in turn teach some one else.It was a big group of ten people amongst them were entrepeneurs and members of big corporate companies we taught them how create and use twitter and facebook accounts and how to sign up for hootsuite and showed them how these few social media tools could be beneficial to marketing their companies. At the end of the workshop we had alot of positive feed back and satisfied delegates which makes my job all the best

Hey everyone

Its been a while since I have blogged, it seems like forever, which is weird coming from me that recently just started blogging.

I'm back and ready to tell u guys about my past weekend:)
My weekend started out very dull and boring until i watched fast and the furious 5>>>WOW what an awesome movie that was!!!

Apart from all the fun and games, my weekend consisted of a whole lot of studying :(. I wrote my second exam today, i must say it wasn't that bad but I'll wait and see if my results agree with me.
Other than that i wish you guys well for the rest of the week, work well, study hard, and use every opportunity that comes to you as if its your last.

Winter

This week as been challenging in many ways for me.Because i was tired ,weak & sick with the flu.Winter as really step in to Cape Town big time with the cold temperatures.I hope summer comes quick this year.

VOTING



Hey everybody as we all now it's voting time again(municipal elections)in South Africa. We all know how important it is to do so or so they(politicians)say. but i guess it's kinda important because of the rich history of our country being able to not only survive but also prospure from apartheid and the struggle. so that we the youth of South Africa can have a brighter and better future.If not for anything else i say just go vote in appreciation to everybody that fought for our FREEDOM.

Leka News









I received very good, actually great news today. It goes as follows: My tuition fees for my final year of studies is an exhausting amount which i am suppose to pay back when i find a job. But thanks to the President when i graduate at the end of the year, that amount will be converted into a bursary.How awesome is that dude.






Im so Happy and this is motivating me to work even harder.






Cheers.

Boots *all smiles* :D

My weekend and unexpected surprise:) I was helping around the house saturday afternoon..getting everything ready for my uncle's 60th birthday party.My cousin and i took a walk to the mall..she had to put her boots on hold at edgars. We went to Truworths after that,i saw a very nice boot..i said to myself..i have got to get my hands on those boots and i put it on hold for myself..so i can consult with my mother first but the funny thing is...We left the mall to get done for the party...My aunty got home from the mall..and surprisingly she purchased my boot as well:) so i was in luck:)

Winter Days






Hey People,






Finally my second best season is on its way to Cape Town; Yes Winter. Some people love it, like me, some people cannot tolerate it. I enjoy the winter season as it in some way force you to spend more time at home with the family, watching movies, drinking hot chocolate and most importantly for me, sleeping late because my holiday will start soon.






On the other hand, Cape Town has recently displayed very radical seasons by raining and windy conditions the one day and the next day the sun comes shining again. Anyway, embrace the winter days because it only comes once a year.






Cheers.

Exam Stress



It has come to that time of the year when most students are faced with late nights, high caffeine doses, stressful moods etc. Yes! EXAMS...some people reckon that you get use to it after a while. I totally disagree. You can never get use to it because each exam is different: some will be harder than others, some will require you to learn more content than others and the most challenging exams will expect you to apply the content you have learnt to real life situations.



Here are my top five tips for exam stress:



1. Plan your time



2. Test yourself



3. Stick notes around the house or your room



4.Ask for help if you don not understand a concept



5.Exercise and eat properly.






Good Luck.
