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.
Most of what holds us back from achieving out goals are our mental scrips we got as kids.
I was inspired to record a video and discuss my thoughts this past Friday when we had free food at work.
In this video I talk about how the mental scripts that we got when we were younger may not serve us well as we get older and have different goals we want to achieve.
As usual, please let me know in the comments how you felt, if you agree, disagree, or just give me a like to let me know you enjoyed it!
What is the difference between being annoying and charming?
I had a discussion with a friend the other day about the concept of Creepy vs Romantic.
The idea is that there is a very thin line between the two. The only thing that separates whether or not you see someone’s actions as “creepy” or “romantic” is
whether or not you like that person back.
The same concept applies to “annoying” and “charming” in my opinion.
Just to add on to what I say in the video, I think this self-awareness could also help when you come across to other people. Its good to know whether or not you’re coming across as charming or annoying to the people around you.
This is easy if you know whether or not they like you, haha.

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.
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 🙂
What to do if you win the lottery and not end up broke.
I cover a range of topics in this talk including:

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 🙂
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!
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.
#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.
