    In Defense of Negativity.

    Today's episode is a podcast-only follow-up to yesterday's discussion on suffering, and why I think it's important to not flinch away from the suffering of others. It's based on this blog post: In Defense of Negativity - (allyvb.com)

    Don't turn away from suffering.

    Don't turn away from suffering.

    Suffering is a part of being human. By turning away from it, opting only for what's positive, do we then become less human?  Thanks so much for hanging out with me. It's deeply appreciated, as always.

    Thoughts on the upcoming fall university semester

    Thoughts on the upcoming fall university semester

    I’m preparing for another semester at university. This time I’ll be dining on a buffet of philosophy classes, three in total, in contrast to my summer meal of three psychology classes. Why am I eating these classes anyway?

    It looks to be a lot of reading, but I’m up for it. I love reading! Bring on those six books, existential philosophy class.

    This episode is based on my blog post: Blog - (allyvb.com)

    Enjoy!

    Things I learned from writing my first college paper: Daily Musings

    Things I learned from writing my first college paper: Daily Musings

    I wrote one paper, and now I'm an expert! (Joking, of course.) In today's episode, I share the trials and tribulations - and inspirations! - of writing my first humanities paper. I received a pretty good mark, and though I'm an absolute amateur when it comes to writing college papers, I hope you'll get something useful from this podcast. :)

    30 Days of Socializing

    30 Days of Socializing

    Hey all! Today's episode is a recount of my "30 days of socializing" experiment from July. I set out to hang with someone (or someones) every day in July, to see if I could reclaim some of the supposed joy I had as a teenager, back in the early 2000s when social media didn't exist and hanging out was just a normal part of each day.

    Being myself does not mean being my ideal self.

    Being myself does not mean being my ideal self.

    Another (short) one from the blog! Being myself does not mean being my ideal self. - (allyvb.com)

    Today's topic is a little abstract as I attempt to convey a feeling-essence, not the mind-essence, of meaning. Because it is not always about thoughts, and thinking, and mind, right? This one is about imperfect moments (most of them), and just being okay with that imperfection, because such is the juice of life.
