my weekend Oscar-movie binge watching has been so good. thus far, new favorite movies that have moved me are Silver Linings Playbook and Blue Is The Warmest Color.
I know, I’m really late on this.
The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday. That’s guaranteed. I can’t begin to explain that. Or the craziness inside myself and everyone else. But guess what? Sunday’s my favorite day again. I think of what everyone did for me, and I feel like a very lucky guy.
TWO YEARS LATE BUT THIS MOVIE WAS EXCELLENT. CRIED HAPPY TEARS.
all solo #TREATYOSELF lunches should include:
last minute cancellations sometimes work out, you guys
someone explain to my dad that dropping off my dead dog’s ashes in my office is incredibly insensitive and awkward and something I really don’t feel like dealing with at work. apparently, he doesn’t get it and thinks dropping off this stuff is his way of “trying to make it easy” for me.
it is not. please keep my dead dog’s things at home until I am ready to get them and make peace with his passing.
a Hispanic and a Black director won tonight. and I am getting Spike Jonez movie-related ink this spring.
twas a good night.
I didn’t even get a pen from the swag bags today. C’mon!
Aquarius: This week is for feeling your roots, for feeling your history, for remembering the things that hold you in place, that make you solid. This week is for feeling the full weight of the life you’ve lived so far, and the full wild range of futures that are available to you if you need them enough, if you do the work. This week, tell the stories about yourself that are truest, tell the stories about yourself that nourish you, tell the stories about yourself that can keep you safe and the ones that can let you move forward.
What these three myths have in common is that they’re circular. Once there’s a workforce prepared to do a particular job unpaid, it becomes one for which it would be unrealistic to expect payment. If a company can get workers with unpaid experience to provide further unpaid labor, “entry-level” gets redefined accordingly. And once having unpaid staff becomes normal, funds go elsewhere — either to a company’s expansion or to staying afloat. Those jobs that “unfortunately” can’t pay probably can; that they don’t is indeed unfortunate.
please tell me it gets better because breaking down in tears every time I wake up and every night before bed is causing severe headaches. quite frankly, I feel depressed and anti-social. we all do.
Women come into the workplace with our differences, and the world has defined professionalism and leadership in that masculine way, which is ‘leave the emotions in the parking lot’… Cooper, who was the lead researcher on Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In, says she’d like to “work towards a system where women don’t have to work so hard just to be taken seriously – where when people cry, it’s not perceived as a weakness, it’s not perceived as being too emotional.”
NO. It is not.
