YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, ALI: How do I find a job or career that makes me happy?

I am glad to read your incoming letters again, yet I am sorry simultaneously. You know I know what it’s like to have a crappy job and/or be jobless. Being an adult sucks sometimes, especially when you are experiencing career dissatisfaction and indecision. “Daydreaming until the Weekend” writes: Dear Ali, I once heard that if […]

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, ALI: Some perspective when you’re unemployed

Here I am again, with my usual blunt-as-a-baseball-bat hard-hitting truth and biting sarcasm for another episode of Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Ali’s drama. Since you haven’t been writing into me, I decided I would talk about myself until you do. If you choose to, write me a juicy question at alinepascene@gmail.com. So, back to business. I […]

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, ALI: How to stay positive when everything seems negative

When it rains, it pours, and my life so far in 2015 has been raining misery. I lost my boyfriend, friends, dog, job, and may lose my apartment. It sounds like a great country song! Things could be worse, but they could be a lot better! I am not looking forward to the end result […]

“Perpetually Confused Girlfriend” writes: Dear Ali, I have been dating this guy for about six months. I know that’s not a long time, but sometimes I feel as if we are good for each other and have potential to develop into a more serious relationship (e.g. moving in together). He recently brought up that he […]

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, ALI: 5 simple ways to beat the winter blues

Are you feeling the winter blues? If you haven’t thus far, you are lucky, but January and February tend to be the most depressing months of the year, with the after-holidays lull, your losing football team (if you care about that), and Valentine’s Day, which seems to be the most depressing of all if you’re […]

“Confused and Guilty” writes: Dear Ali, I need some advice because I am starting to feel confused and guilty. First of all, I am in a committed relationship of two years, and I am quite happy with my boyfriend. My problem is not really with him; in fact, I have very few complaints about him. […]

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, ALI: Set realistic goals and expectations for 2015

Happy New Year from Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Ali! How was your New Year’s Eve? Was it a trash-tastic drunken debauchery love fest extravaganza? Or did you just sit on the couch with your significant other, pass out to “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” or whatever it’s called now, and wake up after midnight to a few […]

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, ALI: 5 tips to survive the holidays with your significant other, or lack thereof

Thanksgiving is upon us and will rush us into the holiday season with Black Friday sales, our obsession with free two-day shipping from Amazon Prime (or at least that’s mine), and incessant Christmas music on the radio and in every store. Advertising for the holidays have been programming and priming us even when we were […]

“Jaded Online Dater” writes: Ali, I am a single guy in his mid-20s and have had some pretty shitty luck with dating. I have a great job that I love, have been told I am attractive, and I am independent. It sucks, though; I haven’t had a long-term relationship in a while (a couple years) […]
