S3E4. Is Pressure Good or Bad For You?

Pressure is inevitably a part of our day to day lives (ugh) and it can come from different places. Sometimes it is self imposed, like you feel as if you need to fulfill every obligation life throws at you. Other times it comes from those around us, manager who demands a lot from you, parents who want you to get married, like, tomorrow. How do we deal with pressure? Is pressure a good thing or a bad thing? How do we navigate through these uncomfortable feelings of overcoming pressure? Let's figure it out together.   As always, if you have a burning question, find us here: Email: [email protected] IG: @frndsnextdoor Dan: @therealdanchen Mia: @msmiaaa Thomas: @mundane_photos   ...

S3E1. Hmm... Do We Worship Celebrities a Little Too Much These Days? | NEW SEASON

We're BAAACK! What was originally intended to be a short break turned out to be a much longer one, and for that we apologize, but we're excited to start another season of FND! We actually recorded this episode quite a while back, so long ago that Tom Brady had announcement his retirement AND came out of retirement but we think the underlying topic of putting celebrities/public figured on a moral pedestal is still relevant anyway.    Hope you enjoy, tell us what you think and if you have topic suggestions!  Email: [email protected] IG: @frndsnextdoor Dan: @therealdanchen Mia: @msmiaaa Thomas: @mundane_photos ...

S2E39. We're Thankful For...

As we close another year, let's take some time to look back and reflect on the things that happened this year. Things haven't been so easy recently and that might be an understatement to some people, but we hope you'd be able to find happiness and moments of gratitude in your day to day. If this hasn't been your year, that's okay, we can always do better moving forward! Quick PSA: we're taking a quick break and will be back next season with a brand new look! Be well and we'll be back in your lives soon :) As always, if you have a burning question, find us here: Email: [email protected] IG: @frndsnextdoor Dan: @therealdanchen Mia: @msmiaaa Thomas: @mundane_photos ...

S2E38. Do I Have Spinach in My Teeth?

Would you want your friend to tell you when you have spinach stuck between your teeth or no? Some of us may think that it would lead to an awkward situation (we don't blame ya!) but we think the end your friend would appreciate it. By the same token, what are some of the things you would not know unless someone tells you? Would you like them to tell you, whether it is spinach in between your teeth or something that could potentially be more awkward?
