S2E36. I'm Just Bad at This, Okay?

5 year-old Mia learnt how to play piano, she kiiind of thrived. Then her sister joined and she uuhhh pivoted, QUICK. So, is piano just not Mia's sister's cup of tea or did she not give it a fair shot yet? (I swear this isn't me trying to diss my own sister.) The point is, sometimes we may close ourselves off to a new experience or may give up too soon. How do we know when we haven't tried hard enough vs. when we're ACTUALLY not good at something?    As always, if you have a burning question, find us here: Email: [email protected] IG: @frndsnextdoor Dan: @therealdanchen Mia: @msmiaaa Thomas: @mundane_photos ...

S2E33. When Will "I See Your True Colors Shining Through"?

Putting your best foot forward in a relationship is admirable, but there are waves where we are lax/not on are game and completely reveal something about ourselves for the long run. We gotta roll with the bad and the good in relationships, but when do you really know someone's true colors? Is this based on time, like in 2 years I know this person? Or does this only happen after your time with a person has passed or even never?   As always, if you have a burning question, find us here: Email: [email protected] IG: @frndsnextdoor Dan: @therealdanchen Mia: @msmiaaa Thomas: @mundane_photos ...
