#44 Chuck & Choice

2017-07-0712:091

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when it comes to making decisions. I sit down with Chuck, my boyfriend’s father and a 70-year old swift decision maker, to understand how he approaches big decisions.
To celebrate Pride month, we’re replaying an episode about two young women, a 10-year relationship, and 4,500 miles between them.

I love Maine, but sometimes I feel isolated here. Could my creative problems be solved if I moved to New York City?

When you start to see the world in only two colors — red and blue — how do you burst your own bubble?
#38 We Grew Up Here

#38 We Grew Up Here

2017-03-2231:48

My parents have lived in the same house for over 40 years. It’s where we all grew up. But when they want to sell it, we say goodbye to more than just the house.
Taxes can be scary and confusing. Maybe it’s because all of that paperwork forces us to take responsibility for our choices. But what happens when the IRS sees you differently than you see yourself?

2017-02-2230:57

Is it possible that a country’s policies can change the way people see themselves? How much of your identity is you — and how much of it is your country?  
#35 Alas Para Volar

#35 Alas Para Volar

2017-02-0823:18

Can a woman have it all?  It’s an age-old question. But in Cuba, a country caught between a machismo culture and some of the most progressive policies in the world, the answer isn’t easy.
“ Pies Secos, Pies Mojados” or “Wet Foot, Dry Foot.” In the U.S., it’s the nickname of a piece of legislation, but in Cuba, it’s been the key to a dream. To what lengths will Cubans go to make that dream a reality?

I’ve always romanticized Cuba as a mysterious forbidden island. But when I go there to visit a friend, I learn growing up on the island is far more complicated than anything I could have expected. This is the first episode of a four-part series on Cuba.

After a year of making Millennial full-time, my editor Devon and I sit down together to reflect on what’s happened and make a plan for next year. But how do you set goals when you don’t know exactly what you want?
Holidays are stressful, especially in an election year. But things get more complicated when you’re bringing someone home with you ** and even more stressful when you’re the person they’re bringing home. **** How do you successfully maneuver your significant other’s family? **** Make it into a game.**
#30 Thirty-Year Plan

#30 Thirty-Year Plan

2016-11-1723:26

It’s scary to make long-term commitments, but living year-to-year isn’t always comfortable. For the first time, I’m starting to consider the 30-year-plan.
The plan is to grow up and chase after your dreams, but what if getting closer to your goals means moving farther from your family?

Not that there's anything wrong with being in the customer service industry, but it really is tough to be doing a job that is not at all relevant to your education and training. Especially when you have invested so much time and money, it feels like it was so wasted.

I can't believe how much episode 2 is moving me. I graduated a few years ago and I'm still at a sort of cross roads in my life. If you see this, I hope you can tell Chuck how much I appreciated hearing his advice. All the way from Leeds, UK.
