Welcome to the reboot!

Screw What Everyone Thinks
Why do we care so much about what people think about us?
It’s something I’ve been struggling with ever since I was a kid. I never felt like I fit in even when I had friends all around me.
And what’s worse is I would try and act different, at times, just so I would be accepted.
For the past year, I’ve tried to be mindful and learn to let things go; speak my mind and be myself, no matter what.
But sometimes, I still feel afraid because I’ve been conditioned to do so.
I need to remind myself to say “fuck it” and go with my gut.
If it doesn’t work out, then it doesn’t work out.
Move on to the next thing.
Let’s see how that goes.
What I'm Currently Into
LOVE on Netflix: Binged all three seasons at once. I’m really bummed that there won’t be a fourth.
Giving Up Coffee: I’ve been contemplating this for a while and have done it for stretches in the past but I think I may give it another go. One of the main reasons is that I’ve been reliant on coffee for the past few months to a point where I can’t do anything in the morning until I’ve had my first sip, even when I know I don’t need it.
Ali Abdaal: He’s a Youtuber and has tons of videos on productivity, learning new hobbies, and many more things. Watching his videos actually inspired me to re-start creating content again instead of spending most of my days consuming it only.
Did you enjoy this issue? Yes No

Hi, I’m Jamie Pham. I currently live in Southern California working as a freelance writer, a social media manager, and run my own clothing line (One Two Threads). I’ve carried around a notebook with me for years now and usually jot down notes, ideas, and random things so I want to treat this newsletter as an extension of that.
