Today’s lunch break workout is a perfect one to take outside. After a no-equipment warmup, you’ll do two circuits of strength exercises, and two 30-second cardio bursts, with no more equipment than a sturdy bench.
1. Don’t limit yourself to the area you studied. Most of the people in my company didn’t study the discipline in which they now work. Nothing goes as planned, and the earlier you accept that, the more likely you are to evolve into a role that is a better fit for you. I mean, who the hell knows what they want to be…
Something I wish I’d learned immediately after college is that student loan interest is a bitch, and I should listen very closely when the friendly student loan people say “yes, sir, we can absolutely sign you up for this deferral program, but please be advised that interest will continue to accrue.”
Be on time. I mean, I already knew this from my days in the military, before college, but that was more by force.
The weekend morning tradeoff is a lifesaver. We have two kids (3 and 5), and my wife and I have done that since our oldest was about 8 months old. It does so much for your mental well-being to know, when you go to bed, that you’ll be able to sleep in for as long as you want the next morning. Even if you don’t take…
I just returned from a five-day trip to Paris, on a budget airline that charges a fee to bring a carry-on. I’m cheap, so that means everything had to fit in a small bag under the seat in front of me. Friends, I did it. You can, too.
I especially agree on the guided tours part. I was overcharged greatly in my last vacation from a tour guide that wasn’t even really a tour guide. I used Hotelr.net to get myself hotel rooms for half the price and kinda reimburse myself for the money. Always yelp your tour guide folks
I’m happy you guys put “Blue Star” on the donuts section for Portland. Everyone told me to hit Voodoo, and my gf and I were underwhelmed. Taking a donut and then putting bacon and nutella on it isn’t exactly revolutionary.
Netflix is on a bit of an international kick. In the last year, the service has produced nearly 10 foreign language series and movies, and it’s in various stages of development for new Spanish, Indian, and Italian programs. As of last week, Netflix officially boasts more international subscribers than U.S.…
Super Duper, Sushiritto, Yank-sing..... jesus this is what we’re recommending in SF now? I’ll give you some non-chain, non-terrible options for people who want the real SF experience.
It had been a particularly stressful week when, scissors in one hand and four inches of hair in another, I decided to cut. A few snips later, I felt triumphant. Sure, a week from then I paid an expert to fix it. But in that moment, I felt like a weight had been lifted, and that felt good, even if it was just a few…
Nothing for Los Angeles yet? Alright:
I moved to Minneapolis a couple years ago and have had a number of visitors come to stay. In that time, I’ve tried to curate an itinerary of dining experiences and have found a list that are universally enjoyed.
I’ve learned to be extremely forgiving when someone forgets we’ve met, and I hope that they pay it forward. I dare to dream that we can, as a society, all agree that this just happens and decide not to take it personally.
Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. This week we’re stirring up a stiff one in preparation for the season premier of a very stressful program: Game of Thrones.
For picky-eating kids, there’s one rule when it comes to food plating: You gotta keep ‘em separated.
I put a lot of unnecessary items on my wedding registry, including a set of violently green margarita glasses, but the most unnecessary item was this weird salad dressing bottle, which had a little handle you could squeeze to stir and emulsify the dressing. I honestly don’t know how it got on there, but I assume it…
MOOCs, or massive open online courses, can be very useful and a lot of fun. But why do them alone? Turn your next online course into a book club-style exercise.
I got my ears pierced when I was 10. My aunt took me to Claire’s at the mall, where I browsed a display of birthstone earrings, picked out a sparkly crystal pair, and then sat in a chair and hugged the giant comfort bear as a young employee aimed at my lobes with a piercing gun. Thirty seconds later, I had pierced…
