The 2 Most Inspirational Movies for Millennials

Don’t Forget to download DatePlay App Here 🙂


Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely in no way shape or form a film critic. However, if you feel like you’re on the verge of a quarter life crisis and want some clarity and inspiration on the meaning of life and other life lessons in your twenties, then I’m here to help!

 

Almost Famous (Cameron Crowe, 2000)

If you haven’t seen this movie, then are you even a millennial? Regardless of the amazing soundtrack, there is an important phrase they use throughout the entire film, ‘it’s all happening.’  Instead of getting caught up in the past and future, the film says to live for the now. Because despite the societal pressures of how successful we are going to be, or where we are going to be in 5 years, or even who we are going to marry, we forget what it means to be a human.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower (Stephen Chbosky, 2012)

This is one of the best coming of age films EVER. Even though Emma Watson’s American accent was a little dodgy in the film, the idea of ‘infinite moments’ is a memorable one.

It doesn’t matter that everything doesn’t really matter, or that life is just a bunch of experiences built up. The idea is that one moment can change everything; that one moment can last forever.

Feeling a bit Broke? 5 Great Date Night Ideas For You!

Don’t Forget to download DatePlay App Here 🙂


Does Netflix and sweatpants for date night all seem a bit too familiar to you?  Keeping your relationship sparkly when you’re on a budget may require a little more effort but there are plenty of creative ways to make it happen and make it fun.

 

  1. Start a ‘Fun Fund’- why not create a joint account or put a money jar on the counter, and deposit any gifts you receive as a couple or money you make together.  It’s important to talk about how much you both are willing to put aside for date nights, weekend excursions and surprise adventures.                                                                   
  2. Buy a portable grill – take home cooking up a notch and go to a park to make your own meal. The possibilities for Snapchat-worthy views and sunset kisses are endless. Oh and there are no dirty dishes to wash afterwards, it’s a win-win!                                                             
  3. Explore Nature – make a weekend trip out of visiting a National Park or an intriguing forest nearby. Why not take it that step further and bring a tent, some marshmallows, and matches? Plus, if you hike up a mountain together the Instagram photo opportunities can be insane. #RelationshipGoals                                                            
  4. Rent a Tandem – there is nothing more enjoyable than riding along a beautiful path beside your partner. Google the most scenic and the best bike routes in your area and make a proper day out of it.                                                             
  5. Paint Outside – Grab some tubes of acrylic and two blank canvases (or even watercolours and paper which are more budget friendly) and paint or draw each other. Amp things up by packing a simple but tasty picnic for afterwards.

5 Life Lessons from Beyoncé

Beyoncé could probably stop the world if she wanted to. Her music and captivating visuals will take you on an emotional rollercoaster of anger, sassiness, love and sadness.

  • Never give up on yourself – In the words of Bey, ‘I’ma keep running. Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves’.

2

Via very smart brothas

  • Your actions affect others – When Beyoncé sings ‘What a wicked way to treat the girl who loves you’ – she’s saying humanity is based on the sense of community. Community lifts people up and inspires people and the way we treat others, directly or indirectly matters.

3

Via Hit up Ange

  • Be true to you above all else – She says ‘I tried to change. Closed my mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less awake.’ Don’t change who you are because it will only dull you down.

4

Via Pinterest

  • Girl Power – ‘A diva is a female version of a hustler’. Bey says women are very in control of their own lives, and much like a hustler, they are competitive, spirited, and dominant.

5

Via E!

  • Show independence – ‘The clothes I’m wearing, I’ve bought it/ the rock I’m rocking’, cause I depend on me. Ever since her Destiny’s Child days, Beyoncé has been an advocate for independence and women defining themselves by their own accomplishments.

4 Questions to Figure out Your Life Passion

Don’t Forget to download DatePlay App Here 😉 


We are told to follow our passion, but how do we follow it if we don’t know what the heck it is? It may be difficult to find, but asking yourself these questions could give you a boost in the right direction.

 

1. ‘What couldn’t you live without?’

If you can’t imagine not doing something then it’s a passion. It doesn’t have to be something that will make you money, like your job. Make your money some way that will give you the time for what you really love to do.

Picture1

 

2.  ‘What subject could I read 500 books about without getting bored?’

Ok, maybe 500 was a bit over the top, but seriously if you’re not excited about this subject then think to yourself, what’s the point? Your passion should intrigue and fascinate you in a way that nothing else can or ever will.

Picture2

 

3. ‘What could I do for five years straight without getting paid?’

To be honest, the thought of not getting paid to work gives us the shudders too.  Hunter S. Thompson, the gonzo journalist and novelist, once said: ‘Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing’. So if your job doesn’t make you dread waking up in the morning then it’s 99.9% likely to be the job for you.

4. ‘Am I working too hard/ not working hard enough to find my passion?’

Inspiration may strike some people in an instant. Suddenly they get that ‘Eureka’ moment and know what they should be doing with their lives. But for most of us it takes work and time. They say ‘your true passion is not found overnight, but is realised through series of discoveries of small interests’.

How to Survive a Long-Distance Relationship

Whether you have been in a long-distance relationship for a while, or recently started a long-distance relationship, it’s important for the both of you to be on the same wave length. It can be challenging to be in one, but if you’re both committed then it can definitely become worthwhile and can either bring the two of you closer together, or pull you further apart.

  1. Communication is Key – It is sacred and your partner will definitely value all and any messages, whether they’re short or long from you. If you lose communication then you might end up in a difficult situation so make sure to text or FaceTime every day.

 

  1. Write Down your Commitments –When you know exactly what your partner’s plans are on the relationship, then it will help you both to feel more secure and at ease. Jotting a few things down shows that you both plan on working on developing your relationship every single day.  

 

  1. Visit each other whenever you can – Your work schedule may be very busy but if you’re committed enough, you will take the time to visit each other to develop your relationship. Making the effort to visit them is vital as you can catch up and spend some quality time together.

 

  1. Always Have Something To Look Forward To Together – Whether it’s a skype call or a holiday abroad together, you should both be excited and waiting for something. If you don’t have a milestone to look forward to then the relationship can feel pointless and uncertainties will arise and may grow into legitimate existential crises.

 

  1. Be Real – This is probably the most important piece of advice. If you don’t see it working out in the long-term, then you might as well quit while you’re ahead. Although many long-distance relationships work, obviously some do not; remember not to kid yourself and to be honest with each other.

Our Top 3 Secrets to Overcoming Interview Jitters

No matter many how many times we all go through the interview process, it is still very nerve racking.  Walking into a new place with new people and asking to be judged is definitely not my idea of fun.

Do your homework.

aaMake sure you research the company from head to toe, even if it requires Internet stalking…I mean sleuthing. Try and find unique facts and information about the company that none of your competitors may know about. Having a good grasp of what the company’s mission is, can really set you ahead and will make answering interview questions like
‘Why do you want to work here’ or
‘why should we hire you’ so much easier.

 

 

Choose your look 24 hours in advance.

aaaInstead of rushing in the morning to prepare a smart outfit for your interview, do it beforehand as this will make you feel more relaxed. Check the weather report and make sure what you wear is practical and formal.  The key here is to plan every detail of your appearance out so you feel as comfortable and confident as possible.

 

Work out in the morning of the interview.

 

aaaaTake your mind off your interview by focusing on something else like exercise. Some of the adrenaline and endorphins when you work out will help you to feel more grounded during the interview.  Also, your body has the opportunity to release excess energy and this will help your mind to relax and stay clear.
