- Being the Butt of the Joke
This video is a highlight from WWJD’s fifteenth episode. Ever find yourself not being taken seriously? Well, one listener submitted this as his sticky situation! Due to his personality of being a joker in the past, the listener opens up to Jamie about how to deal with this issue. Jamie shares her honest opinion of the people (his friends) who do not take him seriously. She also gives advice on how to not be seen as the butt of the joke with people he already knows and with new people he may meet later in life. We can all learn about ourselves from the past and use that to become the people we want to be in the future!
- Do Girls Really Use Tinder to Find Friends?
On WWJD’s fourth episode, Justin Choi, a friend of Jamie’s that she met through mutual friends at Arirang, was a guest host and gave his perspective on the sticky situations as well. In this particular highlight, Justin and Jamie discuss how a girl who wanted to meet friends through a dating app ended up having a guy that kept spamming her phone. As the pair gives their opinions on how to deal with that situation, they end up finalizing the fact that girls do go on dating apps to find friends.
