Do I buy another set of VSCO fil­ters? Do I walk to work so I could catch more Poke­mons? Do I quit my job even if I’ve just hit my sixth month last week? We are pre­sented with a per­plex­ing num­ber of choices ev­ery day, both in­signif­i­cant and life-chang­ing. With the in­clu­sion of so­cial me­dia chan­nels in the mix, our needs, wants, and de­ci­sions are be­com­ing heav­ily in­flu­enced by what we see on our phone screens. In this con­fus­ing dig­i­tal age, peer pres­sure be­comes an indi­rect force that haunts your psy­che ev­ery time you un­lock your smart­phone or turn on your com­puter screens.

Ac­cord­ing to Har­vard Busi­ness Re­view, mil­len­ni­als are the most so­cially con­scious gen­er­a­tion since the ’60s. They want work to af­ford them the op­por­tu­ni­ties to make new friends, learn new skills, and con­nect to a larger pur­pose.

In our Septem­ber is­sue, we delve into the drive to know and un­der­stand one’s pas­sions. We in­ter­view in­dus­trial de­signer Jim Tor­res who talks about how he built his brand at the young age of 23. On the cover, we fea­ture ’90s child su­per­star Meryll So­ri­ano as she re­dis­cov­ers her pas­sion for de­sign. Now in her early 30s, she once again ven­tures into a new ca­reer path. She ad­mits, “I am en­joy­ing the process of get­ting to know my­self again— my de­signer self.” North­ern Liv­ing is pub­lished by Hinge In­quirer Pub­li­ca­tions. 4F Me­dia Re­source Plaza, Mola corner Pa­song Ti­rad Streets, Barangay La Paz, Makati City.
