How Do Volunteers, Donors, Funders & Sponsors Work with Creating IT Futures
"Let's start by refreshing our understanding of the creating futures mission. Have you made any alterations. Have you tweaked in ways has evolved. We believe that technology careers should be open to anyone who has an interest in the field and you know every study ever about diversity says that a lack of it leads to a lack of productivity leads to a lack of innovation so there's a real incentive for the industry and for businesses themselves to take the ship issue had on this been a consistent problem in the it field for so long. Just just trying to do what we can to fix that. That's really our mission. And we have programs for youth programs for adults for women for people of color veterans. So that we can change the landscape. That's really think of the crux of our mission at creating anti futures. There's no shortage of the unemployed underemployed and underrepresented demographics who have an interest and a real talent for the work. They just need an organization to give them a leg up and that's really what our mission is. When we say that these careers should be open to anyone. Who's interested in it. We recognize there are some barriers that may be preventing those groups of people from entering the field. Could you elaborate a little bit more on that. I know there's been some research done by com tia and by creating future that illuminates this point. One of those stats. That stuck out to me right away. Is that sixty. Eight percent of organizations have had challenges in building a diverse workforce which includes retention right and a majority of these organizations that say that they'd be willing to try new approach with these organizations are willing to try new approach. Well we have great proven approach. Ready to go our. It ready program is two-thirds people of color in the program. Assesses at trains certify provides placement assistance. So i'm the programs were there. It's ready for them to use. And the second reason that i'd say our mission is more important than ever is is that there's a pipeline problem right with it regarding diversity. Everybody kind of knows this like women people of color. They're discouraged by our culture from pursuing a career in. It often even by the time they get to high school. So programs like tech roles are directly combating this pipeline issue that companies are facing now and i think by targeting middle school age kids. They're tackling the problem before it can even take place. Let is an excellent segue to bring alicia into the conversation here now expect most listeners. Understand the meaning of being a tear in quotes giving of their time to support a cause but sometimes terms are tossed around donors sponsor and partner and they seem to be used fluidly by some organizations alicia in your outreach for tech girls. How do you pitch volunteering. How do you help. Tech professionals see programs such as tech shops tech. Todd's as different in a very very full and robust field of opportunities to give back especially as we close a challenging year and start a new one with shirley more hurdles to come. How have you volved your pitched volunteers. How do you help them see the light. Volunteering with tech roles is very rewarding and it always has been rewarding previous to you know the hurdles of transitioning virtually as well And we see that feedback directly from our volunteers that participate in our programs. Just serve first time getting involved. They're like wow. I realize the impact. I was going to have in being part of a program such as tech roles but just getting to actually see how inspired the girls are definitely gets them even more excited. And that's why we always say being nervous to volunteer for something like this and working with youth Can can seem like a challenge in itself but jumping in. you'll see that you're inspiring and empowering the next generation of women to explore the possibilities in technology but in addition to that rewarding feeling that you get As a tech professional you're also given the opportunity to build your marketable skills like public speaking teaching and techno know-how and also expanding your network wild teaching these fun hands on workshops alongside others in the tech industry and there's many ways to volunteer and we really feel like that helps with our pitch and engagement with new volunteers across the country.

Dog Breath Photography!
"Pay welcome back to another episode of this week and photo. I am your host frederick johnson. Today we're talking about dog photography and and this specific conversation and you guys know. I've had people on the show before that that specialize in pet animal photography. But this one's a little different for several reasons. We're going to go into keighley's work style and why she shoots what she shoots house. She shoot what she shoots and this amazing new book that he just released. Which is how we came into contact with each other so kaley. Welcome to the show. How's it go it. Hey thank you so much for having me. I'm so pumped to be here and it's going well a relatively well given the weird wild crazy year. The where the wheels fell off the world's but other than that everything's going good and i'm really grateful to be here. Thanks for having me. You're welcome you're welcome. Thank you so much for agreeing to do the interview during the down week between christmas and new year so would most people are just veg watching movies and putting on pounds. We're working and having fun and talking photography so thank you for taking the time out. I'll feel great. Yeah yeah so. Let's dive into this. So kayla are you. You are a photographer. You specialize in animal photography pet photography dot photography specifically. So let's let's rewind a little bit and go into how you got started in this world this sort of upside down world of shooting furry people instead of models in all that. Cool stuff yeah. It's one of those things where like when you show up at a party. You know who what when parties where thing You know and and you're sorta like talk to other people and you get to know people and you meet them and they sorta like ask you. You know everybody sort of sizing each other upright their electrical. What are you do what you do. And then that's when i enter and say oh i photograph dogs for for a living and often. Kinda say like oh. Oh that's that's cute like do you do do okay with that. You know or or whatever they find it quite interesting. In fact i think they probably think like oh so you're unemployed between exactly right But actually it's been oh man. It's been an incredible wild ride. I've been photographing dogs professionally for a decade now. So i started my business ten years ago. i'm based in the boston area and my business called dog breath photography And and basically. Since the moment that i began ten years ago i started by photographing dogs at the shelter Simply just volunteering. My time and trying to make whatever small difference. I could make in the lives of these dogs who had no voice to speak for themselves You know dogs. That had these amazing stories to tell that had had no way to tell them basically. That's where i figured out. That photograph had the power to to save a life to change your life. And so that's kind of where i started to learn. I did go to college for visual arts. And so i had photography is sort of part of my curriculum and so i i kind of you know knew a little bit about it. But i wasn't by any means professional or real even good which is okay. That kinda came over the years as i developed and progressed. but that's just kind of weird. I'll started you know it's interesting so no no no this. This is great. It's funny. I wanted to interject in there or not funny. It's actually coincidental that we're having this conversation. Because when i started in the in photography combat photo journalist by training for the for the air force and when i was going through my training one of the assignments that they gave us. This is in denver. Colorado was to pick a story. All come in all the photographers that come in to train right. And they gave us these assignments and my simon over three days was a shoot it process printed mounted and presented to the class. This is back when we processed and printed and you know made stuff other than digital so so we did this thing and one of the miami assignment was to photograph animal shelter. And i remember. It's so funny that you say could save a life because this we were talking about the assignment. And i was trying to figure out what i should do for the assignment and i wanted to do something that was kind of what you talked about. You know saving lives and sort of helping helping somebody. It turned out to be dogs but the long story short my story was on. I think i titled it or deny zed euthanasia because it was about the animal shelter and showing you know. I showed the ingest all the way through the end for the dog didn't get or or pets that didn't get adopted and what that looked like and i wrote up a story about the the situation in denver at the time of the how many animals there were versus people that were willing to take them in and what happens to the leftovers right so yeah it was crazy. How incredibly powerful. I had no idea that you had in your background. That is that is so incredible. And so powerful. And i mean what a big beautiful heart you have to have to be able to witness that from from front to back like you said because i will admit that the part that i experienced. Typically the shelters You know kind of the the part where. There's so much hope. There's still so much hope right because the dogs are They're coming in. And it's heartbreaking and sad when you see their previous owners can of walking out the doors and leaving them and that that part is hard. But i always have lots of hope for their futures in kind of what can happen for them next so i will say that. I've never not that i haven't by choice stuck around for the those final bits that that can happen to them but just that the shelter that i volunteer at that system is very private about that. Part of things and that that process at the end is very like sort of hidden from the public and from the volunteers to because our hearts are so wrapped up in this work and we love these dogs so much that it is so gut wrenching emotional to out here. You know what happened to two fido and selby or whatever so so to actually. I saw a photographer who did a series somewhat like. You just mentioned who was with the dogs. They took their final portraits before the dogs sort of went into the us in asia room and they were so powerful and i thought my gosh that is what a heart and a spirit. This person has to be able to for the sake of art for the sake of spreading an incredibly powerful message to the public. The stuff that happens behind closed doors that we prefer not to think about
It's Never Too Late To Start Doing What You Love With Paul E. Kandarian
"What's interesting about you. Is you start got into acting a bit later than most which is an interesting story so You went down. And we're doing something with the play then decided audition. Is that what it was. Yeah i was doing a story on This he was the then new artistic director. Trinity rep company in providence. Which is one of the few if not the only rep company left in the country but he came from steppenwolf in chicago and i always wanted to be an actor in so i started hanging around with him going to shows and just watching people. Just the mac nations of theater and i. so what am i waiting for. What the hell am i waiting for. This never had the courage to try it. And that debt gave me the courage to try it in in the bug. Bit hard and i've been just been ever since. What was that night. The play. I saw their addition for sorry took. That was later life. So you didn't audition for that play. You were interviewing him. And then that motivated addition for another play for another play calendar life in the then i want to see like the cherry orchard at trinity rep in one of the actors the came in from the sides on the the the lobby area one of the actors were standing right next to me and i could see like the hair on his arms his nahshon flaring and i swear almost cried because it was so electric and so immediate a what. What power this. This medium has to on people to vote that kind of response and offices. I've got to try this. I've just got to do it. I don't know why. I denied myself all those years. I think i just feared failure. And i don't like doing things unless i'm good at it. You know a a so. I just tried it in a fairly good at it and it's been a great ride ever since. I'm curious what that first audition was like. When you just kind of went down there no having no experience in then handing me a script and basically he. Oh hey read this. Yeah and i never forget it. Because i was sitting in a group of other people including a couple of guys it was competing with and it just felt real in in good in normal. It just reading somebody else's words pretending to be this character. The characters name was austin in the play austin from boston. Oddly enough and it's just reading it and it just felt if folic completion of some sort pretend to be somebody else my whole life of always pretended to be other people's joking around making people laugh. Or whatever just being a class clown sort of thing and then when i was reading this it the legitimacy to to acting out i mean all those years is a goofball it just gave that sense of like you said legitimacy said so this is this is what it feels like to be someone else in in a setting where you have permission to be someone someone else and i loved it so it absolutely loved it and they gave me the part the lead and it was phenomenal. I got on stage and it was like i think lewd to an in the email The lady who was going out ahead of me said my heart's in my throat is at normal. Because i don't think so. And she smiled and went out and i laughed and it just got out there. All nerves went away. It just felt like this is the place. I've been my whole life but you know you come to things when you come to them so i've been making. Yeah that's beautiful because it's true too because you you might be off stage in your heart's racing but as soon as you're out there in that zone how yet none of that matters. You're just you're so focused on what you're doing it's exactly yeah off. If you're an actor too right yeah yeah. Yeah yeah so you know let me. Just what a feeling he asked in. It's an honor privilege to do that. To take some take people somewhere else just to get them out of their own world for a little while and take them into yours it is. It's a privilege that we don't take lightly. Was it stressful being. That's your first play in your in a major role in your first play and you don't have the experience so i'm just thinking even stage directions right. So if the directors like okay. I needed to go stage left. And you're like okay. Is that way exactly because we started rehearsing. And they said we're going to go of blocking like tomorrow and what's blocking this where they tell you where to stand said. Oh that'd be helpful because if you're not used at the film even and you just see people walking and now i really obnoxious points. My girlfriend us to see that guy walking. He's just wasn't walking randomly. They told them where to go. And the so many moving parts to play in film yet and it was all new to me and it still feels new in so many ways. Even though i've done till dozens of films and bunches of place this just a newness to it and there's an earnest embrace of the entire process. I love reader player hill. Says i don't like film rehearsal so much i think it kinda rob's spot and eighty but you know just referrals to play rehill so i like to go to rehearsal sometimes. I'm not even needed off just to watch other people do it so hopefully hopefully at newness and a new hobby you just want to devour. Everything still feels that way. That's been twelve years now so it's great yeah Just from my experience as well like it doesn't go away because you've got a new production and cast that you're working with and in a lot of ways it's new even though you might be doing the same show night after night for a while. It's still that you ever hersal process. And in that excitement of that opening night and in i've always said this i mean an audience is a living breathing organism in it changes when you change. Do it's different every night. You know this. I mean some nights she deliver line and raucous laughter in the next night since crickets. How does that happen. It's the same joke. It's the same way just two different different organisms out there taking it all in you ever had a situation where you like blanked online or tripped over a stage prop or something like that during a show. Oh yeah it's balked on the few lines here and there and i think one time you know. He skipped an entire page in it. You just kinda pick up the pieces and go on but as you know this. The they'll say latest the audience know unless they know the place specifically the scene by scene or whatever they don't know and i and i've been to place of dead i didn't know and i could tell i think is an actor. You just kinda know. I know something screwed up there. No they did something but the covering so you know you. Just pull inform form at that point. Sure yeah think we've all gone up One of the funniest things. I've seen was at trinity rep in angeles korea. Thicker name is just a legendary axe actress. In the new england area. She stopped and she was like kind of looking around and then she gave the line as she just looked. The crisis thought forgotten. She's totally brooke character. Brook in fourth wall. But she's a riot so she got away. Everybody laughs hilarious.

Blake Shelton slammed as tone deaf over 'Minimum Wage' track
"Low note this, according to E. Online. During NBC's New Year's Eve TV special hosted by Carson Daly. The voice coach performed the song minimum wage. Tune he dedicated to his fiance. Gwynn's too funny. Single includes the lyrics like Girl Your Love can make a man feel Rich on minimum wage and girl Your Love is money. Your love is money. Brilliant lyrics by thing. And it says, considering the United States in the middle of the ongoing Corona virus pandemic, which has left millions unemployed and food banks strained the performance left a foul taste in many mouth. Oh, come on people for the love of Peter, Paul and Mary, Are you kidding me? Girl Your love can make a man feel rich on minimum wage. And so that's insensitive. One person on Twitter put it, Blake Shelton is singing your love could make a man feel rich on minimum wage just immense. The fact that rich people have absolutely no effing clue. Another person added. Does anyone else find Blake Shelton's minimum wage song to be incredibly tone deaf to our country's current state? He's yet to address the backlash of the sun, which is, by the way, unreleased. Despite the recent pickup Blake is hoping the 2021 will be a better year. Wrote on Twitter. 2021, please, For the love of God. Be good to us. Happy New Year, young. According to Blake. He's already feeling positive about the new year thanks to his fiancee who released her new song called Let Them Eat Cake. No, I'm just kidding. It's called. Let me reintroduce myself. That happened January 1, she joked. The 2021 2021 is better already thanks to win or he did, and her nostalgic inducing a nostalgia inducing music video. She revisited the her many different looks from over the years, including her punk rock phase. So there you go.

Pandemic wage gains were just a fluke
"Come friday. We're going to get the latest stab shot on average hourly earnings in this economy and it is expected to show continued strong winds gains but our guy on economic statistics mitchell hartman. He says best to ignore that and focus instead on the trouble yet to come so a crazy thing happened on the way to the pandemic recession. After the economy shut down and twenty million people lost their jobs. Workers average hourly earnings went up skyrocketed. Actually up eight percent year over year but what got was was not signal. Joseph bruce willis is chief economist at rsm consulting. He'll be our guide through this thicket of wage data and when he says noise not signal he means fast. Rising wages have been a statistical anomaly of the pandemic economy high paid professionals kept working from home and mostly held onto their paychecks but millions of mostly low paid service workers lost their jobs. When you've got forty percent of households making forty thousand or less seen a job loss or loss in wages. That explains that head. Fake if you will on wages forty year old cinnamon deutsche is. An example of what bruce willis is talking about. She was teaching at a childcare center in asheville beulah ohio when it closed and she got laid off in march her three hundred and fifty dollars a week. Paycheck disappeared from the average earnings calculation. But she got unemployment which included six hundred dollars a week in extra federal pandemic pay until she was hired back three months later. I made twice as much on unemployment with the extra six hundred dollars. As i do now but i am glad to be back to work. I mean i like going to work so like many americans do inches. Income actually went up for a while because of additional unemployment benefits and relief checks but those temporary effects are fading. And just says we're in for a rude awakening. What i think we're going to see is a very bifurcated. Wage market this idea that k shaped economy separation between the hadgem. The have notch bruce willis says the haves those who work in what he calls. These zoom economy will have made goes at the upper end. Those who are already thriving. There's going to be competition for those workers. you know. Premium place their wages but for lower wage says workers even as the economy reopened and employers. Start staffing up again. Those in the middle to the lower end of the market where the damage occurred. They're not going to see a lot of wage growth. That's due in part to supply and demand. Lots of unemployed workers looking for jobs not enough job openings to give them leverage to demand higher pay. then there's something. Economists call downward nominal wage rigidity firms during hard times ten not reduce. The wages of the employee said they keep on the books but when the times get better wage gains core restrained. That is pretty much what cinnamon joy is seeing in her job. She's back at work fulltime at her previous salary of three hundred and fifty dollars a week. The extra unemployment income she banked back in the spring has run out. My credit card is back up to you. Know almost max out trying to pay five or ten bucks extra so that i can pay that down. I make enough money to pay my bills and have mcdonald's once in a while but you know if my car breaks down or have an emergency am just outta luck i i have to borrow from. Somebody doesn't expect chill get a raise until she hits ten years of service in twenty twenty

Monday evening it worked and will work again by offering loans to small businesses based on the size of their payrolls with services jobs now in freefall according to the alarming daily data from home base. This can't come a second too soon. Though in reality firms likely won't be able to make applications under the new program for another couple weeks. He added still. This is a big step forward helping bridge. The gap between the third wave ravage services economy and the post pandemic world of the spring. All told the package came in at about nine hundred billion dollars or less than half the size of the two point. Two trillion dollar cares act from the spring democratic lawmakers have suggested the bill is just the start of a more comprehensive suite of fiscal stimulus however wants president. Elect joe biden.

ANALYSIS: So You Wanna Be New York City Mayor, Huh?
"How Do you see? Large democratic mayor of field shaping up in general. So far, it is kind of overwhelming for people to get their minds around such a long list. I said We were gonna go down through the list, and this isn't even gonna be Complete list. We've begun having the candidates on the show already, and I keep saying to the listeners this June primary is going to come up on people faster than you realize. But my goodness the field is so crowded. With Eric Adams in Scott Stringer and Maya Wiley and Shaun Donovan and Kathryn Garcia and Ray Maguire and Carlos Man, Chaka and Diane Diane. Morale is and Laurie sudden. And that's an incomplete list. And now we're here. Max Rose and Andrew Gang may both be getting in are their lanes in this race like we used to say in the presidential primary, the conservative rain laying the progressive lane or how can a voter who isn't a political science professor like you begin to sort this out for themselves? Right. I mean, in some ways, it's both overwhelming and underwhelming at the same time. I mean, sadly, so many voters can't really fully focus Brian on local elections, just Jack because we haven't gotten past January, 20th And especially for voters of color, Knowing what the president has has said the types of people he supported his members of his own party, essentially trying to actively create a coup within American democracy. It's a very unsettling political moment, and a lot of folks can't really focus. Fully on a local election until there is a peaceful transition of power, which quite honestly is not guaranteed at this moment. And so once we get past January 20th it's a 2 p.m.. Then I think that there's a sigh of relief when we can start looking at. Okay. Well, who are who are the millionaires? Who were, you know, sort of waking up in the morning, saying I should be a leader? That's one bucket. Who were the folks who were currently unemployed and need a job. So hey, I should run for mayor too. That's another bucket. Who were the progressive folks who have interesting ideas for New York in some sort of some sort of managerial experience, but no previous electoral experience. That's another bucket. Then you have sort of the you know the politicians who have been elected to office once or quite a few times, and they want to expand that sort of leadership style. In a city that might be looking for something totally different. And so we have minimum four buckets. Obviously, there's descriptive politics. Some people think it's far time that New York City has female leadership. Some people want to make sure that there's leadership of color, whether it's another black mayor, Post Dinkins or if we should have someone from the Latin next community, and so there's lots of different angles. I think right now because it's so crowded. It's hard to Even hear what people actually saying. But also that's on the candidates, because because of rank choice voting, many people are reticent to attack their opponents. They're reticent to say any big, bold ideas. It's kind of a milk toast election as a as of now, that's not garnering any attention. From the vast majority of New Yorkers. And we know that municipal elections in New York City have have abysmal, embarrassingly low turnout for someone who will not only be the leader of New York but political figure on a national even international scale. Can I just? Yeah, e You want to say something really quickly about Henry's point about 1993 moving forward with crime. I think we need to back up just four more years and think about the Dinkins years and what Mayor Dinkins was was successful and trying to re imagine the police department in a more community policing way, and we have to be honest about the amount of money we pay out as citizens. For bad behavior of the NYPD and how bad officers are continuously protected on considered, I would say, terrorized particular communities, and the fiscal implications of that bad behavior, you know, goes beyond just training. It is a fundamental re imagining that mayoral candidates must talk about because there's something going on that Justin The top brass leadership. But there's some sort of corrosion throughout particular departments in the city that needs to be rooted out in a real substantive way that we just have never seen before. Well,

Which is super funny. Yeah that they had to specify Sullivan I agree I'm all I'm not getting fucked. Have No job like imagine adding that extra layer of sadness to are already Saad Hake. I know I part of me is like we maybe. We should have I mean with Cova head like. I feel like it's self explanatory, but. I just don't want to declare that I don't because the truth is. Is that that that person made that podcast before Cova and started so there by choice, or maybe not by choice? They're just not getting laid right like. At least we can say Tova? Did this Cova? Did this to me? This is Vince. I will not identify with that. I WANNA listen to that podcast. I haven't heard it yet and I'm equally as curious about the POK Mon podcast. Okay. Let's bring some updates next week. Okay valuable use of time awesome so. Where we want to kick this off, we want to kick it off with the title. Being of great podcast titles why we did not include Sullivan. We've already kind of gone over. It's because the entire world is fucking me right now so i. don't really have room for much more. Yeah true, maybe technically. We aren't Sullivan when you look at it metaphor. Metaphorically. The whole universe is fucking us so cool every day every. Single Day but the title was I will admit. Was Andrea idea because we? We had a list going so you. WanNa talk about how we landed on single and unemployed. Going Katie Hodson. Good ones I think my favorite that you suggested was thirty flirty and crying. That could've could've worked.

But it just wasn't sexy enough like it just sucked. Yeah, they weren't sexy at all and then. I sneaked single and unemployed onto the list. Kind of as a joke, yeah, I remember looking at it and writing dot dot dot, ll Andrea capital letters being like there's no way we can use this. This is so embarrassing, but so funny. Yeah, and then we Kinda got stuck on that one and you know not to bring up my tiktok again because this isn't about Tiktok.

Yeah, totally, people were so I was on that train. I was to honestly there was a curious where I was like I dunno, everyone's freaking out so much and of course. In hindsight, we all should have seen this coming. Hindsight's twenty twenty. So that was Tuesday and Wednesday before the lockdown, my friend I. We went for drinks and we were joking around because her roommate's mom had done a like costco trip and bought surpluses, the toilet paper and canned goods, and all this stuff and we were just like. This is so ridiculous like people don't need to be doing this like obviously, everything is going to be okay. We're all going to be fine next week. And then this is when things started to get weird. So this is Wednesday Thursday went to work. It was so quiet and Thursday nights where I worked were not quite, they were busy. I was managing that night, so I was pretty much the first cut in the evening, and so it was like seven thirty I got off work I usually don't get off till nine.

Course Thanks Yeah Right now love that I'll help you. Yeah, right now. It's to know for the chipmunks so I gotta make some changes. Right Andrea so I went first last week with my story, so we want to hear your story I this week. HOW DID YOU END UP UNEMPLOYED? Okay, great question. My most recent job before this one was working at a Tech Company and unfortunately I ended up burning out. It was crazy. I actually quit on March eleventh just a few hours before the global pandemic was announced. That's insane. I know I- terrible timing. Like. Maybe you should've seen it coming, but I also had to quit like I I couldn't continue doing the job, so it's just like things couldn't be more stressful than quitting your job due to burn out and then finding out, there is a global pandemic I agree, and then moving back to Ottawa from the best city in the World Toronto. anyways anytime. Okay for context. I worked in customer support role, so I was basically like an email phone robot, just trying to solve problems and basically having customers yellow meal day. That wasn't very fun. It wasn't the pinnacle of your mental health. No, but the best lesson I learned from that experience was that this type of job just isn't for me I think some people do really enjoy that, and that's great, but for me. It just wasn't wasn't what I wanted to do. And that's okay. But what's not okay is that it did lead to a pretty serious. Burn out that I'm still recovering from I. think that because there's a healthy level of stress that exists in any job. burnout can be really hard to spot because we just think it's normal. But, it's not like out is not a joke. It is serious and it can actually be dangerous. The World Health Organization actually added burn out to the international classification of diseases, because it's so commonly shit I, know wow, yeah, so we talk about. Burn out like this buzzword kind of casually, but is a legitimate disease that people can experience because of their work environment they actually defined burn out as resulting from chronic workplace stress..

I will say that I'm playing into the twenty eight year old unemployed stereotype of downloading talk during quarantine. Becoming addicted I'm not famous yet, but I'm on the way personally. I downloaded tiktok is. Somebody that I was interested in was only interested in communicating to me through tiktok videos which I mean. Land. or No, he's a millennial as well.

Yeah, that was definitely like a big part of it, the vision and naturally when you're kind of older and don't really know you're doing with your life. A podcast is sort of the next step.

"We're here figuring out right alongside you and trust us you probably maybe exactly where you're meant to be. All right so this episode is all about dating during quarantine so Katie Talk to me. What's dating been like for you during this time? So I don't know if either of US are the best authority to speak on this because I. Don't like either of actually data during quarantine. That's true I was like kind of seeing someone I guess leading up to this okay. Was this the Gen Z.? Guy That only wanted to communicate via TIKTOK. Okay, so we've talked about this before Andrew. Not Gen Z. and every time you say that I feel a little bit like a pervert. His nickname is going to be John You guy in reality. He was I. WanNa, say two and a half years younger than me. Okay, so basically I met. This person actually is slid into their DM's on instagram. Have an address ball and I was ready to take my shot at having a casual relationship, because quite frankly I've had like one or two friends of benefits situations in my lifetime, but you know I just got out of a seven year relationship and I wasn't ready for anything serious, but I was also ready for someone to look my boobs and say well done. Wait to you or to God I'm just wondering grew these. Saul. Yeah, like who gets the credit anyway, not important. Keep going. And, so I was like I want to say it was like hey. Let's Bang, but I obviously didn't say that I was I i. kind of started chatting with things started to go really well and I was like I'm GonNa have a casual relationship like this is me casual. Katie's strolling down the street and quite frankly I should have known better because I don't really do. Casual emotions I do fil on. On emotions, I do investment and people, and it was one of those situations where I feel like a lot of people find themselves in where you like someone, and you're not ready to commit to something, and you're Kinda sleeping together, and you keep saying that it's only physical, but it's clearly emotional in either like one, or both of you have feelings I think we both had feelings for each other but. Also even though he seemed to be more interested I, don't think he was ready to have anything serious. either. When quarantine started, I was really funded when things slowly started to disintegrate I thought that for sure we would kind of connect more unlike an emotional level. That just didn't happen case. A casual fling became not so casual casual fling started to just slowly fall apart because it turned into just sending each other stupid tiktok videos and pictures of our dinner. anyways, connection was just like flat lining. I think quarantine connolly got into my head. You start to feel like extra lonely. you start to have this feeling like you're never gonna meet anyone ever again. And so for some reason this became a huge focus for me, and I was trying to Kinda. Bring it back to life, and it just didn't happen while I am sorry that it didn't work out, but I'm glad that some lessons were learned and yeah, you're on the track. You're crashing it in a way, not like literally just like metaphorically if I was literally crushing it, what would look like just the opposite of everything currently? Cool. Just getting as we've said, there's no timeline or formula for what crushing, it looks like an I also don't need no man, definitely not except for like if you wanted one and then that we cool too yeah I think you're right though like I. Think a lot of people that I know is while who were seeing people. Pre Quarantine did struggle all of a sudden when you can't actually get together and all you can do is facetime and talk on the phone I feel her generation just doesn't really know how to do that while I think because. Because of hookup culture and casual dating, it doesn't really leave a lot of space for deep emotional relationships, especially at the beginning for sure and I don't really get this hookup culture. I've never really been a part of it at a boyfriend for seven years before this so I, don't really get the leg non-emotional vestment, and to how someone that doesn't see things that way I'm like. We're speaking two different languages. Yeah, I agree I think it's kind of unfortunate that the quarantine is sort of exposing that people do struggle to make deeper meaningful connections emotionally. Maybe that'll be like a learning from this time. Maybe people will get better at that. Because during this time they sort of had to figure out out of be more connected to people emotionally yeah I, mean I have to say that. On one hand, I do WANNA blame the quarantine for this kind of lack of connection, and on the other hand and some ways. I've been closer than ever to some people in my life and that's how. I hoped that would go with US person. But it didn't, and that's okay, but I don't think that the quarantine -sarily means that. You're automatically losing any sort of emotional connection with people. It just depends on how much effort and how much vulnerability you're willing to have and for me. That comes super easily. It's just part of my nature to be vulnerable and open and connected to people emotionally, and for some people it doesn't and I I feel for the people that are struggling with their own connection right now. So. Tell me about Your exciting life right now Andrea because you told me you had stories to tell and Sonam fascinated. Okay so I. Mean I really haven't been dating? I also recently got out of a serious relationship, so I'm definitely not ready to start dating yet anyway. So. Then my question is for you. When are you ready? was that moment that you know you're ready to start dating because? I I'm also in the same boat I don't know of them actually ready to start. Dating at like it's kind of scary. So I. Don't know when you're ready I. Feel like only you can really know that, but I hope that we eventually take off those timelines for ourselves, and for other people 'cause for for example I was in that relationship for one year, and some people all talk to. They'll be like. Oh, how long did you date for an I? Say Year and they'll be like okay. Yeah, that's nothing and then other people will be like Oh. Wow, yeah, that's like a year of your life that you spent with that. That person so depending on their experiences, they have their own understanding of what timeline constitutes a meaningful relationship or not right. I think that the length of a relationship really doesn't matter so you can have like a three month relationship that is way harder to get over a three year relationship and re rush ourselves getting out of relationships to kind of get over it, and there's parts of you I think that will always be a little bit sad about it. You know like I. Don't think you ever fully get. Somebody that you loved. Yeah, you can be ready to move on and still feel sad about someone. For sure so all that being said I think dating during quarantine is is an interesting thing because people still are doing it, okay. I do have one other story that I wanted to tell you I. Don't know if this constitutes is dating, but you can tell me after i. have a feeling I'm gonNA. Say No, but please go ahead, okay? So was born a couple nights ago I'm living with my mom and I stumbled across my old high school. Yearbooks do remember how people used to sign your yearbook at the end of the year her and they'd right like dumb stuff like have a great summer like don't ever change and it was also funny because everyone was leaving their phone numbers, but it's Ca-. Social media wasn't really a thing yet, so if you wanted to be connected with people over the summer, you literally had to have their number. It's crazy. I'm reading through all these messages in my yearbook and I came across a message from a guy. That.

Sarah is one of those people where everything the tweet is very funny or very smart and often both which honestly I mean just talking about her. Now why would I even be talking to Sarah? Just because she's smart and funny no of course not. We'll get to that but the point is I did get to talk to Sarah just for this podcast and before we could even hit record. Sarah told me that I would not make her cry. Which is fine. Because I don't make people cry. I'm here if you want to cry. There's a difference but either way Sarah let me know. It wasn't gonNA happen. Which is fine. Because Sara is one of the funniest people I've ever met and I would not mind just having one interview where all I do is laugh. Sara is a writer but she wasn't always a writer Duh. Nobody is in her early twenties. Sarah was like so many of us just scraping by looking for direction. Her life could take any direction really.
