The Pogi Podcast Ep. 4 — The Work Life Balance Struggle…Yo


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?


Much love,

Finding Your Style

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 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!

The Pogi Podcast is just an extension of this blog and features candid conversations with some of the most stylish dudes I know. Episode one features pogi ambassadors Adrian and Aaron! This is just a sneak peek of what’s to come in December/January, so make sure you’re following us to find out more about it!

How I Get Over That “Meh” Feeling

Are you ever out in public for work or with friends, but all you want to do is go home and sleep? Maybe not even sleep, maybe you just feel “meh”.

Sometimes I’m super drowsy when I’m listening to a very important lecture. Sometimes I feel insecure and just want to hide.

You know what I mean?

Don’t lie.

I know you’ve felt this way.

One of the ways I combat this is to give myself little prizes that make me excited about where I am. I like to sip on my favourite drink, which right now is a cold bottle of milk tea.

I also feel more energized when I like the way I’m dressed. I wear my favourite shoes, shirt, and even my super special Calvin Klein undies. It’s hard to feel “meh” when you look super good.

Whatever it is that makes you feel energized and ready to take on the day — do it. It never hurts to make yourself happy first.

Giving yourself the best care and treatment will allow you to do the same for those around you.

Shine bright pogi!
