38 Special… (Happy Birthday to Me)

Another birthday down and now I’m 38.  Wanna see where I’ve been?  Here’s the 2 posts you need to read, just click on the year: 2013 – I think this was the last one I did.  That made me kind of sad, so decided I’d pick it back up again this year. 2012 – I didn’t do(…)

Deeply Flawed & Still Learning: Black Lives Matter.

Racism exists.  There’s no denying it, which I don’t (and haven’t).  Even so, I have been absolutely clueless as to just how deeply ingrained and pervasive institutionalized racism actually is in around the world (not just America).  Needless to say, the last couple of days have been like a series of gut punches as I’ve(…)

“All Lives Matter.” Said Without Apology.

For the last few years, I’ve been pretty staunch in saying something I’ve believed my whole life: all lives matter. Prior to 2013, saying that wasn’t a big deal, in my circle it was kind of a ‘captain obvious’ moment.

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(…)

Being Crystal: This is NOT the Dating from “Sex in the City” #NSFW

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(…)
