Did you guys know that reading week became a thing to improve moral and mental health among students in post-secondary study?
I only found that out last year.
In this episode of The Pogi Podcast, we’re talking about the many ways we manage our busy schedules. On top of being full time students, Adrian, Aaron, and I also have part-time jobs, friends, and other commitments we need to be mindful of when planning our lives out. Wanna know how we manage stress in our busy lives?
THIS IS THE EPISODE TO LISTEN TO.
BTW: We have some very exciting news so follow our Instagram and stay tuned until Feb. 24. You won’t wanna miss it!
After months of hiatus since that “sneak peek,” our heroes return for some laughs and resolutions. Show starts off with our new segment where we rate past fashion trends and determine whether we’d leave it, or BRING IT BACK. The conversation gets deep when we talk about our senior year in high school and what it took for Patrick to choose a program his Filipino parents didn’t necessarily support in the beginning.
When was the first time you became conscious of “your look”?
For me it was when in the eighth grade and Tumblr showed me what “swag” was. (I cringed typing that word) I’m sure you all remember when all the boys wore snapbacks and crewneck sweaters.
I was a chunkier kid (still am) so I was constantly on the look for a style that would look nice on me. I don’t think #ootds were a thing back then, so I was on lookbook.nu searching for inspiration.
Finding your style is hard because there aren’t any wrong ways and too many right ones. The options are endless and making one “yours” is difficult.
My advice — take time to experiment and try things out! I do it all the time whenever I’m feeling uninspired.
It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about it because it’s your look and you can do whatever you want with it. If you like the way you look, you’ll feel good about yourself.
Till next time,
We have a podcast now!

One of the greatest promises of life is that nothing ever stays the same for too long.
When things are good, we have this radiant outlook on life and we’re so happy. When things are bad, we fall into this self-pity party and can’t seem to get out of it.
When I was at my lowest, I used to tell people that there was no point in being happy because sadness comes up anyways. It’s so easy to play the victim and be all “why is everything happening to me?” but I’m telling you now, it’s not worth it.
Everyone has bad days. F*ck, everyone has bad weeks or months, but things will look up. The point is that we need to accept our position and accept that we don’t always have full control on how we feel.
By embracing life’s never-ending changes, we become more humble in our happiest days and hopeful in our saddest.
Wherever you are emotionally right now, embrace it. The good and the bad. This is how we find contentment in all aspects of our lives.
Stay humble. Stay hopeful.
Happy Thanksgiving pogi!
