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!
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.
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.
Brenda talks to fellow twentysomething (and high school alumnus), Vanessa Elizabeth of the travel and lifestyle blog, Wander Onwards. Vanessa shares her early feelings of finding something better, just how the hell did she end up living in China, and just a few of the struggles of living abroad. They then discuss feeling unsafe in America vs. other countries, and the wealth of tips for cheap traveling. Also, OF COURSE, she talks about the insanely viral article “23 Things To Do Other Than Getting Married Before You’re 23” she wrote, and the aftermath that followed (spoiler alert: death threats). Get inspired to step out of your comfort zone!
