Ahh, Friday.

Once upon a time, there was this girl who promised herself to let nothing in but good vibes every Friday of every week. That would be me. But guess who’s feeling down in the dumps at the moment? That would also be me.

I’ve been meaning to write a blog post on my 23rd birthday, which my family and I celebrated in a lovely resort, but I couldn’t find the time to sit down, edit the photos, and pull a long, photo-heavy blog post for you. But don’t worry, it will be worth the wait! All I can say is that the place is amazing and every corner is Instagram-worthy. That alone should get you excited!

For now, I’m dumping these online articles I find really compelling. I am a voracious reader. If I’m not slaving away with articles, I’m reading some on my various social media platforms. I’m particularly fond of Twitter at the moment because I find people I follow leaving a lot of helpful and relatable articles and I could just read them on a whim while working. (Oh, and I’m doing this in between work because we all need a break, right? Just don’t tell my boss, okay?)

I’ve heard of the Pomodoro Technique when I saved an article about it on Pocket but haven’t had the chance to fully read until yesterday. The first time I read the article, I found the time management method too intimidating and the written piece too lengthy so I shrugged it off but promised to go back to it when I’m in a better mood to read a lengthy article.

So to start this off, what is The Pomodoro Technique exactly?

The aim of the Pomodoro Technique is to provide a simple tool/process for improving productivity. The idea was founded by Francesco Cirillo in the late 80’s but was not put into practice until the late 90’s, later on making more people interested with the concept and asking how it is done exactly, thereby encouraging Cirillo to arrive with this study. The Pomodoro Technique was derived from the word Pomodoro, the Italian translation of tomato, which is the shape of the kitchen timer Cirillo used in this study.

However, to not confuse my dear readers, I will be sticking with this article, which I found on Pocket.
