Maladroit Fool: Grade School Edition
Remember the class trips in elementary school? Remember the excitement to leave class with all your friends and enjoy a day away.
Women in Power
Retail manager may seem menial to most but to me it is a career in the making. I have not necessarily suffered hardships and oppression but I have suffered from ageism and sexism in regards to my title. This post is meant to shed some light on the thoughts and feelings of one young woman in a leadership role; myself.
The First Impression
It's been two years, three months and eighteen days. I have been so consumed in my work to allow myself to date, to feel vulnerable, to live. I haven't given it the slightest thought. My friends have been supportive. Trying to get me to go out for a drink here, a party there, to meet new people. I am a traditionalist. I like meeting people out in the world. I am one of those people who still admire someone dropping off a resume in person to create that first impression.
Behind the Scenes: Uncut
Ever feel like you are emotionally drowning? I have. This is a testimony to the life I lived. The struggles, the abuse, the victories. It isn't pretty, but whose life is all flowers and rainbows? We all have our demons, our crosses to bear. Everything happens for a reason; the reasons may just become clear over time.
It starts at the beginning.
To the woman who made the nightmares disappear, the wounds heal with love, and the heartbreaks bearable. The woman who encouraged me to cry and held me tight. The woman who would always wake me up so that I had time to get ready for school. Who would never need to raise her voice to show she was mad. The woman who would move heaven and earth to protect the ones she loved. My mother.
