    Tickets please

    Tickets please

    Today, we bow down to the Ticketmaster gods while waiting in line for Taylor Swift's Eras Tour tickets. But as we make our way through the virtual queue, let's talk about the fans of the past. In this episode of Thick & Thin, I reveal the history of buying concert tickets and the start of the infamous Ticketmaster service charge. Cause, in the end, is the experience really worth the money? For Taylor, the answer is yes –– always yes!

    Mind the gap

    Mind the gap

    The truth is: we are all selfish. Because sometimes, it's challenging to be a good person, as it's nearly impossible to be open-minded, kind, and considerate all the time. And honestly, that's okay –– as long as we try to become better. Of course, we'll never be perfect, but if we remind ourselves to look at different points of view and continue to learn and grow from each other, we can take the first step in closing the empathy gap.

    The art of letting go

    The art of letting go

    Let's all take a deep breath and stop obsessing over every aspect of our lives. In this episode of Thick & Thin, I relinquish my crown and title of "Queen of Control" and realize that perfectionism is not always the goal. Because if we learn to trust our instincts and follow our deepest needs, we might discover that doing a little less can lead to the same results.

    The Olive Theory

    The Olive Theory

    In this episode of Thick & Thin, I put the words of Ted Mosby from How I Met Your Mother and science experiments from elementary school to the test to discover if opposites really attract. Well, turns out it may take more than the dislike of olives to be a perfect match.

    A meet-cute

    We all tell stories. It's in our nature: from box-office hits to best-selling novels to just talking to a friend about your day; storytelling is all around us. In this episode of Thick & Thin, I tell a story about my most recent meet-cute and discuss how storytelling plays into our everyday lives.

Message to the person i admire

The concept thick and thin + your videos have become the most bitter sweet decorations/self care parts in my life/daily routine. everytime i hop into the shower its become a daily routine to listen to one of ur podcasts Ive binge listened to all of them and as a senior in highschool it opened my mind in into different aspects that i love in life such as art,design,poetry and most importantly love. each podcast has new topic and a new entry that manages to summon the positivity in me everyday or if i had a rough day your podcasts manages to make me feel better and motivated so thank you so much katy , your truly an inspiration to me.

Xx with love haya 💕
