A Few of My Favorite Things

Podcast
The College Info Geek Podcast has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. It’s two geeks with social skill dissecting user-submitted questions as it pertains to college, productivity, and careers. They’re funny and super insightful. Highly recommended!

Product
The Google Chrome extension, StayFocusd, has become my new saving grace. It allows you to set “banned” sites and how long you’re allowed to spend between them all in one day. Facebook, Twitter, and reddit—10 mins of wasted time per day allowed.

Food
Weißwurstfrühstück (“white sausage breakfast”) is hands-down my favorite German food. It’s tradition to only eat it before noon and is one of the few culturally acceptable times to have beer before 4PM (“Kein Bier vor vier”). My drink of choice, however, was Spezi—orange-flavored cola.

Music
Indian Summer” by Jai Wolf. I came across it when looking for Madeon- and Porter Robinson-esque sounds.

Mantra
“If it takes less than two minutes, then do it now.” Apparently, this originates with Getting Things Done by David Allen1, but I’m sure I came across it on a podcast. I’m almost certain it was an episode on The Tim Ferriss Show while discussing meditation.
