Update your résumé
Disclaimer - This episode is going to offend a couple of people but it has to be had. We aren’t sending shots for anybody but if the shoe fits it fits. We can’t be resting on our laurels, and we can’t keep talking about the things we did in high school, time to update the résumé and get out there again.

It's typically not until the demise of a relationship that we gain the clearest perspective about what actually transpired and where things went wrong. Warning signs we may have missed while we were in the throes of a new romance—or deep into a relationship in which we've invested so much time and effort into working—suddenly become glaringly apparent. But as we're navigating a new romance and getting to know someone, it's important to look out for red flags in a relationship.

Self Care Revisited
The truth is, as I’m sure you know, the older we get, the more our bodies change. But sometimes we forget that this also means we need to adjust our self-care habits. We’ve spoken about it before *insert episode* but life is a linear journey and we have been learning more about ourselves and we decided to come back to this.

Shoot your Shot
Ah yes, love is in the air. With Valentines Day around the corner, this seems like a good time to talk about this. You lovely people respond to our relationship stuff quite well so I think we are going to jump headfirst into this whole approaching a future partner and as the kids say "shooting your shot"

Old Familiar Faces
If it hasn't already happened to you, someday it will: You'll pick up the phone or open an e-mail and suddenly get a blast from the past. Out of the blue, you'll hear from someone you used to know. It might be a former classmate, hoping to see you at the next reunion. Or a colleague from a previous job who's passing through town. Or a teenage crush who looked you up on the Internet. Has this ever happened to you?

Sharpening your tools
If you've ever felt like everything has already been done you know it's miserable to be blocked creatively. It doesn't have to be this way. We know what it is like to wrestle with our creative output and to even piece things together, but you can overcome this and get back to being the creative machine that you are.

Read the Room
This may be a tough one to listen to but hey your boys are always here for the tough chats. Reading the room is such an underrated and understated skill we see out here. We are about to drop some game, so stay buckled in. This should be a fun one.

A private life is a happy life. Seriously. The older we get, the more we are able to appreciate the value of privacy, without the associated guilt we used to feel about implementing it. A private life is a happy life because as the respect that you have for your own privacy increases, the drama, bad luck, bullsh*t, and insecurity in your life instantly decreases.

Ah yes! If you are familiar with us in our personal lives the horizontal office is terminology you may have come across. Something we practice quite often, it’s quite funny actually and this should result in the wholesome and hilarious content that you come to us for. We’re about to delve into the idea of the horizontal office.

Kiss a few Frogs
Ahhh yes this is one we can all relate to. All in “love” and mushy eyed and taking pics for the gram and what not and boom fast forward a couple months and we don’t want to be associated with that person. Sometimes we have to go through a few bad ones to find the one.

Several of our friends are undergoing personal crises right now. Some are seeing long-term relationships come to an end. Another friend is about to get evicted and one of the other homies is stuck and can't get home for Christmas because of all this craziness. How do you save people? It's hard to know how to counsel friends when they are in the midst of a crisis. Sometimes we're afraid to reach out to friends in acute crises because we think that they'll be embarrassed or ashamed. As people that have been on the receiving end of some amazing help and with everything going on, this is such a necessary conversation.

Drinkcember Vol. 2
Drinkcember is the season to drink, eat, party, be merry, let your hair down, dance like you just don’t care…you get the gist. For so many people in our audience, they get to travel home and see some old familiar faces and it is an incredible time to reconnect and bond with our close family and friends. Obviously, this year is quite different, and depending on where you live, you might not be able to travel. This is our second Drinkcember as the Tings and Things fam and definitely a weird one.

We’ve talked about getting contracts and securing jobs but there is a flip side to that too. Telling someone that you won’t be able to work with them doesn’t start with the words you say to the potential client. It starts with the conversation that you have with yourself.

Living intentionally requires clarity. When you are clear about what makes you happy, healthy, loving and wonderful, you can be happy, healthy, loving and wonderful. Imagine a life with less confusion and doubt. Clarity makes everything easier, but getting there requires change and commitment especially if you are busy, distracted and overwhelmed.
