Intern Picks: Top 10 Shows to Watch on Netflix

Like anyone else, I love Netflix. I love unwinding after a long day with a glass of wine and a compelling show. I love re-watching old movies as background noise when I’m working. And I love cuddling up to my dog (or boyfriend if he’s lucky), and binge-watching a series on a lazy Sunday. At Cutline, we’re constantly discussing our favorite series, and making recommendations to one another about what to watch next. So, I decided to share my personal top 10 favorite shows on Cutline Speaks! Read more

iRobot Roomba 980 Review

For Christmas, my brother-in-law bought himself an iRobot Roomba 980. Priced at $899.00, the autonomous robotic vacuum has wheels and rotating brushes that cleans floors, and, well, lives. Upon seeing it, I was skeptical because I am old-school and like to use sweeping/cleaning as therapy...also, I was raised in a home where cleaning is a rite of passage, so I deeply value the cultural tradition that comes with a clean home. Thus, you can understand my skepticism. However, after seeing it in action I was enthralled and charmed by the little robot cleaner.  Read more

How to travel comfortably during your next long-haul flight

People call me crazy, but I actually love long-distance flights. Growing up flying back and forth between Korea and the United States, I’ve become accustomed to 12- or 14-hour flights and use that time to unwind and recharge for the trip ahead. There are many benefits to long-distance flights, such as free meals, and access to an entire library of the latest movies and TV shows. I usually catch up on all the shows I’ve been meaning to watch during my flights to Korea! In addition, while having zero access to the Internet for 14 hours can be a scary thought, it actually forces you to take your eyes off the tiny screen and rest.

However, not all long-distance flying is created equal, and there are some ways to make your next in-flight experience even better. Here are some of my tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way:

Shaq’s Workout Challenge

The new year has finally arrived. After the past few weeks of going from holiday party to holiday party, you’ve probably over-indulged.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all about #TreatingYoSelf, but I know that after eating too much and exercising too little, I start to feel pretty tired. With the new year, it’s important to remember the health of both your body and mind, and do things that make you feel good! With that, I wanted to share a few (FREE) workout sites and plans that I’m planning to use in the upcoming weeks.

Best Planners to Keep You Organized in 2017

Anyone who works with me knows that I’m a sucker for to-do lists. They help me stay organized and prioritize my to-dos, and in a fast-paced field like PR, that’s incredibly important. And while sticky notes are great, they pile up and can easily be misplaced. That’s why I’m a big fan of planners...yes, the ones you were given in grade school. Thankfully, there are a ton of really neat planners to choose from. Below are a few of my recommendations on planners to help you stay focused and organized this year:

Creative Challenge: Haikus!

“Brevity is the soul of wit” (Shakespeare). “Less is more” (Robert Browning). “Keep it simple, stupid” (Kelly Johnson). We’ve heard many things about brevity throughout our lives and in business, because sometimes you don’t need to say very much to communicate an idea or observation. That’s what makes haikus so fun to read -- and at the same time, so challenging to write. For last month’s creative challenge, Cutliners were encouraged to use haikus -- three-line poems with a 5-7-5 syllable structure -- to speak their minds. The results:

My First Experience With Virtual Reality

I’ve never been into video games or known much about how they work. I’ve seen my little brother become obsessed with games whose names I can’t pronounce, while staying up late just to finish one last battle. With that being said, I wouldn’t call myself a gamer. But after using a virtual reality headset, I can say that I am a bit obsessed with this new world -- so much that it compelled me to write about my experience.
