nye15


Another year is over, which means it’s the season for reflecting. Instead of looking back in regret or disappointment, take a moment to consider all that you’ve done and learned–and the exciting part of continuing into 2016. Happy new year!

11/5/15 The Loneliest Number(s)

It’s hard making new friends after college. It’s also hard keeping friends after college. Friendship is hard, yet vital to our well-being. Brenda gets into the ugly truth of the trap of saying no, and some advice to cope with sudden loneliness one gets in their twenties.

9/30/15 “I Am”

Finally (or unfortunately?), some one-on-one time. Brenda catches you up on self-employed life thus far, then shares her ideas about self-identity vs. career after college. What would you say when you begin the statement, “I am”? Do you use the word “aspiring” too much? Time to rethink and re-approach how you identify yourself to the world.

4/11/15 QLC Turns Two

Brenda does some quick reflecting over the past two years of producing the podcast, why she began creating her own project, and the importance of growth and expression with a personal and creative outlet.

Brenda sits down with friend and former classmate, Edricdale Silla and catch up on life since graduation. They remember the days of art classes, and how exactly did Edric find his passion for film, editing, and most importantly, storytelling (those days of online RPing!). He shares his personal experiences of an unhappy job, the physical toll it had on him, the incredible turnaround that followed after, and some blunt but invaluable advice he has for twenty-somethings (and up!).

02/05/15 The Dark Side of Unemployment

Two episodes ago, Brenda talked about the Value of Unemployment, highlighting the unmentioned benefits to being unemployed for a time. Today’s episode, she explores the not-so-happy stuff, and the common feelings of dejection and poor self-worth one has when searching for work. But with every dark tunnel comes a light at the end!

State of the Podcast/Blog

Lyfe is hard, gaiz.
Lyfe is hard, gaiz.

Before you freak out, this post is not about ending the podcast. Don’t worry. Because obviously, you must be worrying, as I am so important.

I guess it’s about time to do my one written post of the year. I can’t remember when was the last time I wrote a blog post (upon research, it looks like it was actually over a year ago, yikes). Partly because of disconcerting thoughts, and mostly because I had a shit ton of coffee. Speaking of, ever try bulletproof coffee? Amazing. Okay, back on track.

I’ve been thinking a lot about my blog/podcast, Quarter-Life Crisis. It only makes sense to hash it out in written form, as it concerns the existence and/or possible future of the podcast, which is honestly more important than this “blog.” Continue reading

nye14

Just as she did a year ago, Brenda looks back at the past year, and gives a little instruction on what to take from your own 2014 events. How much has changed for you since the year has started? And how awesome do you want to make 2015? Happy new year everyone!

11/21/14 The Value of Unemployment

Brenda gives a quick spiel about the changing value of unemployment, the doors that unemployment can do for someone, and motivating yourself to follow your dreams. DO IT!

10/30/14 What is Passion?

This week’s episode is all about PASSION! We say that word over and over, but what does it really entail? Brenda does a breakdown of how she came about her idea of different levels of passion: admiration, passion, and TRUE passion, in the form of obsession. Also, an important discussion of inspiration vs. motivation. Stay inspired!
