4 Fashion Trends to Sport in the Marriott Business School This Fall

3 Sep

The Tanner Building, home of the Marriott School of Management, is known as the place for beautiful people. No one really knows why…  Maybe it’s the sheer number of demi-god athletes who study there because they get in without meeting the application requirements, or maybe it’s the fact that they study the most materialistic subject at BYU, or maybe everyone in the school just has super rich parents.

One thing is for sure: you can’t wear your PJ’s or Wal-Mart brand undies to class in this building.

1. In other schools on campus, when guys lose their hair they move on. In the Marriott School we fight a little harder… when a guy loses his hair he replaces it with fabric. Cool brands like Volcom/DC/Nike, athletic teams, or the cool vintage trucker hat salvaged from Aunt Sue’s coat closet.

2. The night after a male is accepted to the Marriott SchoolI a magical fairy drops one of these bad boys in his closet with instructions to wear it at least once every two weeks. Girls don’t get anything… maybe that’s why the gender ratio is a little skewed! (tie is optional)

3. I think this haircut is ugly, but business students eat it up! Since the honor code is a little strict about hair, I understand the need to be “unique” and if you aren’t forced to choose option number 1 then you might as well show off your thick, wavy, (frequently blond) head of hair.

4. And lets not forget the ladies….skirt suit

Although who are we kidding? These things look SO much better on guys.

Katie Spero – Let Yourself Learn

When I meet someone who asks me questions and seems genuinely interested to hear the answers, I find myself feeling great after our conversation.  It is easy to focus on how we look in the eyes of others, what they might be thinking about us, and whether or not they like us.  But when people meet, both parties in the conversation are focused on themselves.  Neither is as invested in the other person, as they are in what that other person might bethinking about them.  The “irresistible person” isn’t worried about how they seem to others, but rather is genuinely present and interested in the other human being they are interacting with. 
 
There are three steps that can lead to being fully present with other people:  
 
1.  Let go of what you feel the other person is thinking or not thinking about you.
2.  Allow people to be themselves without labeling them, or creating judgements about them.
3.  When listening to people, be aware of the voice in your own head responding.  The quieter the voice, the more you are truly listening to, and becoming present for, the other person.

Maybe I Don’t Know Everything… But Keep that A Secret From my Mom

15 May

I’m always on the hunt for new and improved ways to become Irresistible.  On Mother’s Day I was scanning wordpress and I remembered how many interesting and exciting bloggers are out there!

Growing up, my mom occasionally gave me the speech about how true it is that teenagers think that they know everything .  I’ve known that I didn’t know everything since I was 6 and sat on the wrong side of the bus on my first day in kindergarten. There was a boys side and a girls side. Guess which one I chose?

Since that embarrassing experience, I decided to ask for help and look to others for advice.

Thankfully, there are some awesome bloggers out there who have much more talent, writing skill, and wisdom than I do… and a few of my favorites have agreed to indulge a little question that I’ve been itching to ask them:

What characteristic makes you (or anyone else) Irresistible? What three tips would you give someone who wanted to develop that characteristic?

This is the Least Creative Post I’ve Ever Written

9 Apr

Mostly because I’m not going to do any writing. I’m going to let my creativity idol Tina do the talking.

I’ve been a big Tina Seelig fan for a while… seeing her on TED is just a dream come true!

Hello Blogging World!

21 Feb

Sorry I’ve been MIA for a few weeks. I deided that school, work, and friends were more important than my blog…

I’m sure that the number one quesion on your mind right now is, It’s been so long since you’ve blogged about guys. What happened to you? Did you actually start dating someone?

Sadly, no.

I’ve gone on a few dates (and avoided a Tinder guy who was sneekey enough to get my number) but I’m not dating anyone.

Just studying, making changes, and working in the community.

If you know anyone who wants to ripped to shreads on my blog, give them my number… we’ll go on a date.

Update

1 Feb

In the 24 hours since I last posted I’ve had a few people approach me to take me up on my big offer.  Here’s the catch:

  1. They’re ALL GUYS (with one exception) and
  2. NONE of them are willing to meet the requirements that I set (share Irresistible Girl on Facebook and/or tweet about it).

I’m not sure if I should be offended or flattered.

I originally made this blog for women, but it seems like it’s actually more appealing to men… If I write an “Irresistible Boy” blog will more women read it? Maybe.

Perhaps people are more curious about understanding the opposite gender rather than making “Irresistible” changes to themselves.

Just out of curiosity, please identify your gender below.

 

Creating Ourselves: Identity

1 Dec

For some reason this hit home for me today

Identity is fascinating. If we didn’t find it fascinating, there would be no interviews, no memoir, no ‘I’, as such. To identify each other, we talk about interests, beliefs, our dreams, our likes and dislikes, our passions. We talk about where we think we belong, what our past has been, what our present is, and where we think we’re going. Or we are ‘rebels’ in some sense of the word – setting ourselves apart from the culture we grew up in, or apart from the culture that people attribute to us.

It fascinates me because I’ve noticed that my identity has shifted, along with how I define myself at any one time. I used to define myself by what I consumed: my favourite TV series, my taste in music, what I wore.

Nowadays identity is something I consider deeper, rooted in a sense of my experiences and how I’ve responded…

Self-Discipline in 5 Sentences

26 Nov

By Leo Babauta

Have a powerful reason — when things get difficult, “because it sounds nice” or “to look good” aren’t going to cut it.

Start tiny, with a simple but unbreakable promise to yourself to do one small thing every single day.

Watch your urges, and learn not to act on childish whims.

Listen to your self-rationalizations, and don’t believe their lying ways.

Enjoy the habit, or you won’t stay with it longer than a week’s worth of sunrises.

Social Media: The Grey Area Between Friends and Strangers

Repost from this website

August 30th, 2013

The other day I was listening to Kurt Vonnegut’s graduation speeches (because I like to party, ladies) who had an interesting take on unhappiness. Vonnegut says people’s unhappiness is rooted in not having enough people in their lives.

funny-nostalgic-women-happyContext – Vonnegut is advising young college grads on married life. He says the reason

why a wife feels lonely or a husband feels bored can be fixed by having more people in their lives. He specifically suggests at least 50 people. It doesn’t have to be quality 50 people either. The number itself is what matters, quantity over quality.

The idea is larger than Vonnegut’s marriage context. It can help increase happiness, period. We simply need more interactions in our lives to be happy. Specifically, grow the number of interactions with people in the grey area between friends and strangers. It’s easier now than ever. Remember, when in the grey, it’s quantity over quality.
