I Said What I Said LOL

The unapologetic wave that has washed over women recently has had many identities: “Did I stutter”, “sorry not sorry”, “I said what I said” and the 2018 version: “No more putting 'lol' at the end of my statements in 2k18. I said what I said.” The motto is a symbol of resistance against vulnerability, ownership… Continue reading I Said What I Said LOL

Nudes Rules

After years of watching women being harassed and slut shamed for engaging in moments of self-adoration that others were PRIVILEGED to glance, I’ve learned two things: 1.

INTERNSHIPS: “OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW.”

Beggars can’t be choosers. That’s the one thought that temporarily shuts down all my concerns when it comes to intern application season. Does it matter if the workplace is diverse? Does it matter if it’s paid? Does it matter if the work environment is hostile? The way I see it, I’m at the bottom. I’m… Continue reading INTERNSHIPS: “OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW.”
