It's Not You, It's Them

Photo by  Tima Miroshnichenko  from  Pexels I recall having had an interview for a particular position that I had been working toward for some time. Unfortunately, I was interviewing with a particular employer that did not know how to vet or interview prospective employees. I remember being asked a series of questions, which I'm sure they thought were a harmless exercise in testing my critical thinking skills, but instead I ended up feeling like I was ambushed with a pop quiz designed for me to fail, because I had the disadvantage of not having ever worked in the very specific capacity/position before. Needless to say, neither I or the interviewer walked away from that meeting feeling confident about one another. It seems as though that interviewer should have reviewed my resume more carefully and realized, "okay, she has done alot of work to get up to this position, but she still lacks the experience. Let me see how teachable she is". If he had ap

WAP: What About Priorities

 It appears that people are more concerned about a video that seems to glorify prostitution than they are about the actual women, girls, and boys in their communities that are trafficked into prostitution. 🤷🏾‍♀️                Image by Cottonbro On a serious side rant; I'm wondering, from a pop culture stand point, how people can be so disgusted with an a rtist (though, I reluctantly refer to her as such) for agreeing to perform her song to the direction of Collin Tilley's "WAP" video, but still hold reverence for songstress, Patti Labelle, who in 1974, along with a few other vocalists, actually sung a song about a prostitute in New Orleans ("Lady Marmalade", produced by Allen Toussaint), (and claimed to be clueless of the songs meaning afterward, ). I'm sure for the generation in which the song was released, it had to have been very controversial, however, generations later people seem to have for

The Office

I recently completed my binge of  the comedy sitcom, The Office, on Netflix. I have to be honest, when the show was on air, I did not give it consideration, mainly because I was still in high school at the time, and had totally misunderstood the premise of the show. I remember thinking to my "uncultured teenage" self, "who would want to watch a show about a bunch of old folks working in an office, what could possibly be funny about that??". Needless to say, I watched a lot VH1 back in my high school days. I'm not sure if the show finally caught my attention because I, myself, am now the same age as the two characters of the main storyline, and have had my fair share of office work, or that I can now appreciate decent story writing, but after seeing it appear in my suggested titles category on my Netflix account I finally decided to have an open mind about the show. Well to be totally honest, I had previously binged The Mindy Project  as well, and was a bit curi
