Sometimes the Impulsive Choice Is the Right Choice

Why You Need Your Multipotentialite Inner Child

I never really grew out of childishness. It’s just so fun. Children get to be curious, silly, and playful, and there’s something delightfully mindful about the capacity they have to get absorbed in an activity for hours on end. Naturally, we can’t remain entirely childish forever, but I’ve been thinking lately about which parts of […]

3 Ways to Try Something You’re Pretty Sure You’ll Be Terrible At

We all draw when we’re little kids. If we don’t have paper, our crayons just decorate the walls, instead. At some point, though, most of us start to judge our drawings. The natural progression from there is to become frustrated and, often, give up completely. Once we get to that point and stop trying, we […]

Why You Should Pursue Things You’re Bad at and Don’t Get Paid For

“Oh Sophie, it’s beeeautiful!” I exclaimed, admiring the yellow pipe cleaner wrapped around a ball of aluminum foil attached to my friend’s ring finger. The audience laughed. I didn’t.

How to Make Your Free Time Count

The usual problem with time is not having enough of it. Between work, my own projects, home life, social life and various necessities, it feels as if I barely get to exercise my true passion of absolutely wasting my time. (This comedy sketch describes it perhaps a little too perfectly…) Joking aside, there’s lots of […]
