Sitting with the Right People

April 19, 2016


A couple of weeks ago, a baby shower was thrown for one of my work friends. The party was during a workday, during lunch time, and as I walked into the room, I did what almost everyone who walks into a party does. I noticed the decorations and the food and the gifts, of course. […]

On being lucky

March 31, 2016


This month, I did what I do every March. I sit in a doctor’s office, waiting for a nurse to call me back to a room where, eventually, an oncologist will meet with me to discuss the results of my blood work. Sometimes there are other tests to talk about too; the more ambitious will […]

This week, I narrowly averted a professional, and potentially personal, scandal. {Thank you, thank you, Body Compass. Thank you, intuition.} Lest you think I’m being melodramatic to reel you into reading this post, fear not. The fraudulent happenings I’m about to describe are worthy of a Jackie Collins novel. Since January, I’ve been interviewing at different companies, trying to […]
