Okay Guys: Enough is Enough

There’s a lot of talk in our digital space about the special place reserved in hell for women who don’t help other women.  For the most part, I agree with that… although, personally I’m not going to promote or help anyone just because they’re a woman.   They also have to be competent and likable for(…)

Being Crystal: Why I Stay(ed) and Why I Left

There are things which we hold close to our chest, not really wanting to share with others.  Of course, there are all kinds of reasons for it; but two stick out when it comes to domestic abuse:  there is a sad reality of judgement against the victim and a lack of desire to understand those(…)

Let me warn you all up front:  this is TOTALLY rantastic, has nothing to do with work and is really me just working out the frustrations of dating in 2014. For anyone that knows me well, they know that even though I haven’t been dating since I was fifteen (and I’m divorced, so I have(…)

Quick Thoughts: Don’t Shoot the Messenger

Heard this recently in conversation and thought it was a pretty interesting turn of phrase.  Almost always, it either precedes or sums up communication unpleasantries. Bottom line, it means two things: That the bearer of bad news doesn’t want to take accountability for whatever it was being said because it “wasn’t their call,” and That(…)
