    Self Help Hipster Podcast S02E03: Money, A Love Story.

    March 3rd, 2017


    We’re back and trust me, this episode is AWESOME.

    I have had this book in my Kindle app ever since 2014 and had read it until about half way at the time but never finished it. When Andrew and I were discussing what would be fun to review this book came up. Additionally to the pop culture pleasures and obsessions, I think it made for a really fun, honest podcast!

    The Self Help Hipster Podcast S02E02: The Universe Has Your Back

    January 30th, 2017

    New episode of the Self Help Hipster Podcast, season 2!

    Fair warning: when I listened to the podcast I don’t think it’s up to our usual standards.

    Which is my fault entirely, not Andrew’s. I’m all over the place, stuttering and not being my usual eloquent self. I have been under the weather with (what I thought was) a pretty bad cold, but the days following the recording I was in bed with…something. And it wasn’t Channing Tatum.

    If this episode disappoints you, I hereby apologise. Next episode will be better, promise!

    “Fat Dumb or Ugly? Which Do You Think You Are?” Book Review: Journey Out of Fat Dumb and Ugly

    December 16th, 2016


    (…) A young lady called into the [radio] show and frantically revealed one frustration after another to the doctor and to all of the country. After listening to the caller’s spiel for several minutes, the talk show host, obviously out of patience, stopped the caller short and asked:

    “Fat, dumb, or ugly?”

    “What? the caller asked.

    “Fat, dumb or ugly? Which do you think you are?”

    “I don’t understand,” the caller muttered.

    “People who make these kinds of choices in their life only make them because they see themselves as fat, dumb, or ugly. So which one do you think you are?”

    After a pause, the doctor repeated her question, only slower, as if she were speaking to a two-year old. “So, which one do you think you are: fat, dumb, or ugly?”

    After another moment, the caller swallowed hard and, in a weak, defeated voice, said: “I’m fat.”

    And that, dear reader, was it. I WAS HOOKED.

    The Year Ahead: Year Compass

    December 15th, 2016


    Up in the 12 Days of (Weird) Self Help: A (free!) PDF called YearCompass (the Year Ahead). To help you get your 2016 in a row and prep for 2017.

    I found it in the BulletJournal Facebook group (where I never post because people get in fights all the time) and I think you guys will like it too.

    Out with the old and in with the new, but not without a healthy dose of introspection and contemplation.

    Master Your Mindset by Michael Pilarczyk

    December 14th, 2016


    Next up: Master Your Mindset by Michael Pilarczyk.

    Michael seems like such a smart, nice guy in his videos with Sanny and I find his life story absolutely fascinating: Making tons of money, losing it all, finding his way back to happiness and health, fame and fortune.

    But his book, Master Your Mindset?

    …This is gonna be short and sweet.

    Relationship Reveal Card Game

    December 13th, 2016

    First up in the 12 Days of (Weird) Self Help: the Relationship Reveal Card Game!

    12 Days of (Weird) Self Help

    I get a few emails a week in the Self Help Inbox from publishers, publicists and people in Nowhere, Idaho (or Inpronouncable, Somewhere). These are lovely people who ask me to review their books. I don’t usually take the time. I don’t really know why not, I just didn’t. 

    But in November I got to think about it. What if I started to accept these invitations? After all, it’s one of the unique opportunities my particular blog offers. People want me to read their books, look at their stuff and have an opinion. 

    Ya’ll know I love self help (and I LOVE to have opinions). So I figured it might be fun to accept these submissions! 

    And thus, I decided to start saying ‘yes’ to pretty much all of it. So far, it’s been really fun. The authors, publicists and publishers I’ve been in contact with have all been really cool and I’m excited to feature them and share them with you.  

    Let’s get this show on the road. shall we?

    Please note: I am not getting paid for any of this. Some of the items I’m featuring were sent to me, and hilariously some I bought myself after I realized I had expressed interest but never followed through on the other person’s question on how I’d like to receive the review copy. 

    Eh. I am what I am.
