Ask @sundayswithemily:

What do you think are common mistakes people make in romantic relationships?

Moving too fast, too soon. Mistaking lust with love. Falling in love for the wrong reasons, i.e. money, fame. Leaving friends for significant other. Being too dependent on each other. Declaring their relationship on social media way too soon, like if they've only been talking for less than a couple o months. Sharing the relationship problems with too many people. Hide things and think it's "not lying." Keeping significant other separate from friends/family, it won't last if your s/o doesn't get along with them or if you have to hangout with them separately.

What is your favorite color to wear?

Black/nude - neutrals in general. I think most ppl look the best in those colors. Very good for work. And very good to rewear often. Also I think it is v sexy to standout from your beauty through a classic black dress, instead of being in your face in a hot pink or royal blue dress.

What is your favorite alcoholic drink?

I don't drink! But pleeeaaaase tell me some alcoholic drinks that TASTE GOOD. I never drank in middle/high school because underaged and I didn't give into peer pressure easily. I also felt like I didn't need to drink to have fun. Now that I am older, I still don't drink mainly because I simply don't like the taste. So please recommmend me yummy drinks!!

What pet names do you and your boyfriend use? What are some common pet names that you dislike, if any?

Mi amor, bro, broseph, chiquita banana, chunky monkey, gordito, kitten, babe/baby, my love, honeybunny, bih...random names.
I don't rly care what pet names ppl use - it's just annoying when they use it in public like when you're hanging out with them or they use it in like instagram captions like "oh honey you are so wonderful" like that's barf to me. I don't like cheesy captions.

Have you ever said something hurtful and regretted it? Have you ever wished you could turn back the clock? Or do you live more along the lines of no regrets?

I think the only time I would say something hurtful to somebody is if they hurt me first. But if they hurt me, then they aren't even worth my time so I just cut them out instead of saying/doing anything hurtful. I definitely aint got the time to be dealing with ppl like that #noregrets

Financial advice (like how to budget/what to save for/things to invest in etc) for those who are working while in school?

Hello! Great question!!! I would love to give advice on this, but I do not have much experience with it. As I start my full-time job, I intend to really get a proper hold of my finances and will maybe make a post on it then. The only thing I can give advice on now is "savings." Personally, I have never been one to spend money. I'm actually known for being cheap. Too cheap. I think I now have a muuuch better balance between saving/spending. Before, I used to really scrape pennies because my family came from very little and my parents (dad especially) have always been a very frugal.
As I come into more money with my recent jobs, I let myself enjoy myself a little more. But I still think I save a lot in comparison to others. Here are my general guidelines when it comes to saving money:
-I don't let myself feel bad when I spend money on big ticket items that are INVESTMENTS (i.e. laptops, camera, other useful technology, school stuff). These are items that will make my life better/safer/more efficient and hopefully make me more money. This is the main category where I spend money - I really spend almost no money on other things (i.e. clothes, food, random stuff). Most everything else is likely junk.
-I typically eat at home or bring food from home. I rarely eat out unless I am with other people.
-However, I do let myself spend money on things like boba. I consider it another "investment" in myself. It may cost $5/boba and it sure does add up, but working at a boba or drink shop makes me way more productive. If I didn't spend the $5, I would probably go home and not get any work done.
-I shop at places like Ross/Marshalls/TjMaxx for a lot of items, for more than just clothes (they have home decor, technology, and other supplies) and it's much cheaper.
-For groceries, at least produce/fruits, you cannot beat the prices of Asian markets.
But yea, ultimately I cannot stress enough on saving money. Almost all young adults I know do not save and I think it's pretty crazy. Unfortunately, life is really expensive. You need new tires - few hundred $. What happens if your roof happens to breaks and you need to replace it? $8k. If somebody in your family gets sick - $10k. What happens if you get fired and you have to finance yourself while being unemployed for a few months? Do you have that money if something were to happen? I think so many ppl don't save because they do not think they are financially able to or they think they are in a stage in life where they don't need to save. Neither of those are good excuses. Even if you work a minimum wage job, you can for sure set aside $100 or even $50 a week. This will add up to $200 a month --> $2400 a year. Okay this is getting really long lol. SAVE MONEY LOL.
