#31 – Careers & Planning Your Future (Doctor Nahi Banungi!)

What if you wanted to study Arts and Humanities, against the wish of your parents who want you to stick with Engineering or Medicine? How would you feel if you studied in a field for a long time, and just because of 1 failed course, you could not get a degree? What if you were pressured into going to medical school and wanted to drop out? What if you managed to drop out, switched to another field and challenged aggressively to catch up with other students while being asked why you dropped out? How do you get up after being put down like that?

In this episode we invite 25 year old Hamza (U.K.), 22 year old Aiza (ISB), and 18 year old Muskaan (ISB) – 3 youngsters at different stages of their lives, to discuss their difficulties around planning their futures. Then, we offer some advice for dealing with these challenges.

#29 – Night Owls

This episode, we invited 5 guests – the most so far! Meet Muskaan (18, ISB), Amaan (19, ISB), Hime (18, KHI), Sami (18, KHI), and Saif (23, London). Saif has been on the podcast before, and everyone else is new.

The topic is a simple question: Why do you stay up all night? Every person on this episode pulls multiple all-nighters every week. Through that question, we get into other topics like stories of strict parents and late night obsessions.

We started recording this episode at 3 A.M. in Pakistan (an appropriate time for the topic) and stopped just shortly after Fajr! Enjoy.
