What Hollywood gets WRONG about Arabs, The Middle East, and Arabic

  • Post category:Video

https://youtu.be/tHy_9MZHpQ8 I had no intention of making a video about this topic until 20 minutes before I started filming... No really. I'm serious. There I was, in front of the mirror finishing up my makeup, thinking "today I'll film my Q&A about relationships" -- backstory: there's a list of 12 questions that I had written for future guests about their thoughts on various aspects of dating/relationships...I was going to answer them for you this week,…

First Time in Lake Tahoe: Hiking Mt. Tallac

  • Post category:Video

https://youtu.be/5JblnzinSwQ My first trip to Lake Tahoe happened in mid-September, the same time as the fires in the Bay area (then again, I'm struggling to remember a summer/fall without fires in California...)! I was fortunate to have the opportunity to leave LA for a few days and stay in a house in South Lake Tahoe. That said, NO I didn't skip school (it's actually hard for me to do that, as a nerd) -- I am taking…

Ivy League to Community College: Back to School with Shannon

  • Post category:Video

https://youtu.be/aeY14PXdVv8 Hello and happy fall semester!  After graduating from Wharton in 2010, I never thought that I would go back to school. Honestly, I figured that anything I needed to know I could just 'google' and 'youtube.'  But less than 18 months after graduation, I was already back in class. It wasn't a formal "college" where you work toward a degree; they were Arabic classes at Eton Institute in Dubai. I was buying books (Al…

https://youtu.be/YQrJeTRBT9w "You're in pretty darn good shape overall"  -Adam Yoser, DC, after my first session.  Hello everyone!  I hope you are all doing well and staying safe.

Religion and Dating: Muslim, Mormon, Jewish, and being DIRECT

  • Post category:Video

https://youtu.be/078lZPLurIE Hello everyone! Welcome to August!  Today Angie and I discuss dating for people from more conservative/traditional backgrounds. We were both raised Mormon and I lived in Dubai for 7 years, so when I saw a question from one of our viewers about advice for dating outside of one's religion/culture I was SUPER excited to broach the topic with Angie. In this video we discuss our experiences with LDS rules about dating (yes, I finally…

What I Wish I’d Known 15 Years Ago about Skincare

https://youtu.be/yujstmYwOqs Hey everybody!  I'll start by saying that it's taken me a while to get to a place where I feel comfortable talking about my skincare...15 years ago I was SUPER self-conscious and embarrassed about my skin. I would wash my face twice a day and do all the things I thought you're supposed to do...but it didn't seem to help. Back then I didn't know about supplements and nutrition. I've come to understand that it all…

Ranked #1 Best City for 3 Years in A Row? My First Trip to Austin

  • Post category:Video

https://youtu.be/eD726InoPcs Hey everybody, I recently returned from my first trip to Austin. A bit of background reading: Austin, Texas was rated #1 US City to live in for three years in a row according to US News and World Report. I noticed that this was for 2017-2019 (it looks like they didn't do a 2020 ranking...probably because of...a certain pandemic that's made the last 4 months feel like a year). I live in LA and it was…
