Overcoming your bias to appreciate the nuance

Overcoming your bias to appreciate the nuance

September 17, 2020

The unbridled exchange of information on the internet has never met its match in terms of ensuring accuracy and consistency, which is why we must individually confront ourselves, our biology, and our biases to find a truer, more nuanced picture of the issues.

According to CNBC, there will be a total of 3,898,000 college graduates in the United States. As of right now, the class of 2020 doesn’t know how long our post-graduate progression will be stalled.

7 staycation ideas

7 staycation ideas

August 13, 2020

Yes, summer is in full swing. (It’s actually winding down, somehow?) And that generally means it’s time for a vacation! But we all know that this summer isn’t quite the same as in the past. And with many trips getting canceled left and right, you might find yourself settling for a staycation instead of that vacation.

Children’s movies and TV shows hold a special place not only in our hearts, but in the collective media of our society. Large creators like Disney and Pixar craft beautiful, relatable characters and stories that do not simply entertain the latest generation, but provide social commentary in simple but powerful ways for more mature minds.

How to gain confidence (and introducing Siegfried’s Confidence series!)

How to gain confidence (and introducing Siegfried’s Confidence series!)

July 30, 2020

The Confidence Series videos bring experts and novices together on one screen to try all the fulfilling activities life has to offer. With varying degrees of success, I’ve learned to knit scarves as well as cook a Chick-fil-A inspired sandwich in my kitchen, blazing new trails for myself and getting more and more excited to try new things.

Can you bounce back from a bad first impression?

Can you bounce back from a bad first impression?

July 23, 2020

You only get one chance at making a first impression. Which is fundamentally correct. But what happens when you say one offbeat thing, wear a wrinkled tie, or your hands shake and you spill coffee on the table? Are you doomed?

Toxic positivity: When optimism hurts more than it helps

Toxic positivity is the idea that you need to stay positive no matter what. It means that you focus on only the good and none of the bad. Ever. I know, I know. How is that a bad thing?

Unexpected twist to daily blessing

July 2, 2020

Life is a long journey with many unexpected twists and turns for all of us. Tamika Tabb’s experience is no different, although one of her bumps in the road came a little earlier than she anticipated. This bold, friendly, and bright young woman grew up in a tightly-knit and religious family in Williamsburg, Virginia. She lived with her grandmother, her mother, and her brother Mike.

I need to do better. I'm starting with knowledge.

I need to do better. I'm starting with knowledge.

June 25, 2020

Over the last two weeks, I have watched and read and listened to many black voices answering the question of what white people can do and how we can help. I want to do better, and I’m starting with expanding my knowledge and perspective. Here’s a list of recommended books (from others, not from me) that are relevant to what is happening now and has been happening for hundreds and hundreds (and hundreds) of years.
