My advice to undergraduates

Advice from someone a few years ahead.

A few weeks ago, I was asked to do a video giving advice to current undergraduates for the housing community I worked at during college.

I felt like this was pretty much the same advice I give to all undergrads I’ve met over the past 6 years since graduating myself.

How to deal with a breakup

Tips to help you move forward when you’re facing a loss or need to move past a relationship.

I was chatting with a friend last week who recently got out of a serious relationship and we had a good conversation on what helps with getting over a breakup.

Getting over a relationship or any sort of loss can be very challenging, but there are definitely healthy ways to get through it.

I recently went through a tough breakup earlier this year and had similar insights on the process of moving forward.

It’s not easy, but these tips can help.

Dating Advice Compilation From 3 Top Books

Best dating advice compilation from 3 top books on relationships, attraction, and seduction.

The theme of the month for October was “Dating, Attraction, and Relationships“, so I decided to choose three of the top books I could find on these subjects.

The goal was by the end of it, I could analyze the common themes among the books and synthesize a high-level guide for anyone currently in the dating scene, or maybe just feeling like they need some advice on how to navigate relationships.

We all know that this can be one of the most emotionally exhausting parts of our life so it’s good to get some insights from people who may have way more expertise than us in these areas.

Why I Love Mondays

Why Mondays aren’t the worst day of the week, at least to me.

Most people love Fridays & Saturdays but typically hate Mondays or Tuesdays.

My reasons why I love the beginning of the week and why reframing your thoughts this way can be beneficial.

I’m curious: What is your favorite day of the week and why?

As usual, leave me a comment below! I love reading and responding to you all.

If you have any topics you want me to discuss or cover, let me know!

How to be “cool” as an adult

What I learned about being cool.

When I was younger, I thought people could only be “cool” or “smart”.

But then I wanted to bridge that gap and be both at the same time.

Now, I realize that cool isn’t about not caring or about being smart. It’s about being self-confident in who you are, knowing yourself, and being unapologetically you.

Do you agree! Let me know in the comments! I respond to all of them 🙂

Why 70% of lottery winners end up bankrupt

What to do if you win the lottery and not end up broke.

I cover a range of topics in this talk including:

  • Why lottery winners go broke
  • What to do if you win the lottery
  • My own thoughts on personal finance
  • Why money won’t make you happy

 

What are your thoughts on winning the lottery? Leave me a comment and let me know! I respond to every comment 🙂

Why I don’t listen to everyone who gives advice

Be careful who you take advice from.

One of my biggest pet peeves and why I sometimes tend to tune people out when they try and tell me what to do.

Anybody else feel this way? Leave me a comment and let me know if you agree!

Would you rather be stuck in traffic or under a tree?

Why perspective goes a long way.

Would you rather be stuck in traffic caused by a fallen tree, or be the one who’s car had the tree fall on?

This talk was spurred obviously by my frustratingly delayed commute to work. Given my commute is only about 8 minutes, but it turned into 25 minutes, which really annoyed me.

Until I got closer to the reason why there was traffic, and then instantly I changed my attitude. I would rather be in traffic than have my car totaled by a fallen tree.

I think the key idea here is this: there’s always something worse that could have happened.

Also that #gratitude goes a long way in how you see your day going. Whether you’re having a good day or a bad day is soley dependent upon your attitude or mindset.
