Lessons from the Last Airbender

August 6, 2020

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: When optimism hurts more than it helps

July 16, 2020

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

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.

The class of 2020 is stopping to smell the roses

The class of 2020 is stopping to smell the roses

June 11, 2020

2020 was set to be a defining year for many of my closest friends and for many college and high school seniors. The moment we’d been waiting, practicing, learning, growing, saving, and worrying for had finally come. We were poised to don our caps and gowns and take the symbolic step out of our academic cocoon and into the warm and bright future of tomorrow.

Your health is your greatest retirement asset, so invest now!

Your health is your greatest retirement asset, so invest now!

May 21, 2020

Think of it this way: We know that someone who begins saving at age 20 will have more money in retirement than someone who begins saving the same amount at age 30. So, it makes sense that someone who began prioritizing their health at age 20 will be healthier later in life than someone who began at age 30.
