    Adulting

    Adulting

    ADULTING: The practice of behaving in a way characteristic of a responsible adult, especially the accomplishment of mundane but necessary tasks. Urban Dictionary gives this as one definition: Post adolescence when the light in your eyes fade away and dies.
    A term made popular by and about millennials.
    This is a topic that could really go all kinds of ways so we picked one and that was so go over 20 things not taught in school. In this episode we talked about whether any of these should be taught in school or whether it's something parents should have been responsible for. We figured not quite half would probably be beneficial to have in the school system because of the huge important throughout life.
    So even though it's a list of things not taught in school, doesn't mean we think they should be and in some cases, the ones listed are in fact taught in school. So many are starting life with no idea about very basic things and without getting too serious in life, you don't want to be completely clueless either.
    So what would you add to this list? What do you think is essential adulting?
    You can join us on our Facebook page and if you enjoyed it please share and of course, continue the conversation...with your kids because you don't want them to have to go to one of those adulting schools do you?

    Legalizing Marijuana

    Legalizing Marijuana

    On October 17, 2018 recreational marijuana use will be legal in Canada. In the US, 9 states have made recreational marijuana legal. Medical marijuana is different. That's not what we're talking about in this episode.
    We talked about the PROS and CONS of legalizing it and it's a hot topic but no matter what side of the coin you fall on, it's a big issue that gets clouded by so many things and in this episode we make it clear that we're talking about the average user that uses it recreationally.
    Something we love to do is CREATE A POLL asking people whether or not they were in favor of legalization. We asked on our Facebook page and here's a screen shot of the results. So whether you agree or not with it being legalized we just ask you to continue the conversation...ask questions because you'll most likely learn something new about the topic or the people you're talking too.
    We'd love to hear from you too and remember NEW EPISODES DROP ON WEDNESDAYS!

    Catch Up & Preview

    We took a break over the Summer...we needed it. We'd been going hard for over a year and it was time to step away...
    This short trailer was really about dipping our toes in, catching up with each other as well as our audience. Big things happened like CJ quitting his day job and me taking a long-ass road trip and a month in NY/NJ.
    We decided to make some changes...for now...and we shared that in this trailer as well. Let us know what you think because we really do listen to our audience because without you, there wouldn't be a show.
    All new episodes will be released here on Wednesday mornings so be sure to come back here each week. Oh and check out our website...we freshened it up a bit.
