    Singles Awareness Day 3

    OK, we at First Of All just found out that Single Awareness Day is February 15th. Consider this your dating PSA for future reference. But also, Happy Valentine's Day loves! While it's a beautiful holiday to celebrate all the couples and their flourishing romantic love (and give Hallmark/Flowers.com 1/3 of their annual income), for others it can be a tough one filled with feelings of loneliness, pain, and/or just not feeling good enough. In this episode, Minji shares some of her thoughts on her new chapter of being single and a developing self-love practitioner. We just want to love on you whether you're newly single, can't remember your last relationship or if you've never had one. At every stage, learning how to accept and navigate our honest emotions and fill our own cup is one of the most important acts of love we can do. XOXO @}--}------

    Asian Masculinity with Mike Bow

    Asian Masculinity with Mike Bow

    Before diversity and inclusion was ever a trendy topic to back on social media, discussions surrounding what representation really does to a person's sense of identity have been going strong for ages. One of the more underdiscussed and misunderstood conversations is around Asian men and their desirability. Whether created out of jealousy or malice (or both), Hollywood has had a history of spurning on stereotypes of Asian men as weak & asexual while hypersexualizing & fetishizing Asian women. Fast forward to 2020, we see how much things have changed onscreen, but how has everything leading up to now played out across generations? How have these depictions gone on to influence young men & women IRL when it comes to their self-image & to their relationships? To discuss this, Minji sits down with her friend, actor Mike Bow, to unpack some of their perspectives. Mike shares his journey in pursuing a less traditional path as an actor & how his own self-image & the image put upon him by others has shaped it all.

    Evolution of Love Languages with the BF Kenji Tsukamoto

    Evolution of Love Languages with the BF Kenji Tsukamoto

    The Five Love Languages book was originally published back in '92, but its theories have become a widely analyzed & applied framework to understand how us weirdo human beings give & receive love. Whether we're talking about romance, family, friendships, or even co-workers, we all show affection & feel appreciated in very different ways. The love language paradigm has opened up conversations between partners & friends, but maybe most importantly, within ourselves to self-identify our own tendencies & preferences. Ideally these assessments could help lead us to more fulfillment & understanding rather than resentment, exhaustion, or feeling like we're better off living alone on a remote island with an inanimate object for a partner. Minji sits down for an honest conversation with her boyfriend Kenji about their love languages & how they exist IRL on a day to day basis. How does it impact their perspectives, how does it impact fights & days when everything feels off? How have they changed over time? How can one make the conscious choice to speak someone's language in order to better care for them? Hold onto your hats & get ready for a deep dive on words of affirmation, physical touch, gifts, acts of service, & quality time.
