Today we’re once again practicing the art of spitting rapid-fire wisdom in the form of a 5 questions episode.
Specifically, we’re answering these delightful questions:
- How can I make a habit of listening to audiobooks?
- How can I make the most of a networking event?
- Can I be productive while still having days to relax?
- How should I meditate if I find it boring?
- How can one practice deep work when working with other people?
Who says you need to wait for college to build professional-level skills? Mayer Adelberg, creator of the web series Synesthesia, certainly doesn’t.
Making solo YouTube videos is already hard enough, but Mayer found the creative fuel to successfully Kickstart his passion project complete with actual film crews and casting, all while still in high school.
Today’s the day. The day you finally show the world your corporeal might and start your new exercise regimen.
Unfortunately, as much as you’d love to head on over to the gym for a healthy serving of squats and oats, you can’t help but notice a few things:
- You’re busy this morning
- You really didn’t get enough sleep last night
- The gym is packed
- You forgot to clean your gym shorts
- You can’t find your headphones
- Also infinite other things because life is hard
So, honestly, tomorrow would probably be a better day to start things out. A clean slate! Read More…
We’ve talked a lot about the power of networking.
Networking is powerful enough to land you job opportunities, friends, respect in your field, or maybe even a letter of recommendation from your favorite professor.
But wait: you’ve never even spoken to your favorite professor. You’re also late to almost every class, and you usually just spend that time looking for Koroks on your shiny new Nintendo Switch.
Somebody’s not getting a recommendation (excellent gaming choices aside).
In this episode, we talk a bit about how to build a good relationship with that favorite professor of yours and anyone else you might need to convince you’re worth remembering after the semester’s over.
Have you ever wished you could just delete your student debt?

In this episode, we give a rundown of the various programs and strategies you can use to delete, pay off, or refinance your student loans.
You’ll want to check out some of the links below for more specific details if anything we talk about sounds like it might apply to you.

As you may have heard in earlier episodes, we’re moving to Denver.
Seeing as how we recorded this episode days before the big move, we decided to talk about some of the planning involved in uprooting our lives and moving an entire France away. Things like:
- How we chose where to go
- How we’ve been getting ready and staying organized
- What we’re planning to do to get comfortable in our new city

Pick one to live with: a close friend or the dreaded rando.
Gut instinct may say to pick the friend, but that may be just as risky as the person you don’t know — living styles and expectations are more important than hobbies if you want to avoid souring a friendship over an ice cream cone on the floor.
So we’re going to talk a bit about how to handle living with roommates, be they friend or newcomer, along with:
- How to keep a sleep routine while still having fun
- How many things to take on at once
Oh, and we’ll also be talking about why you might need to eat your weak hamsters.
Enjoy! Read More…
