Staffing Agencies: Somebody Lied

Staffing Agencies: Somebody Lied

I understand that the economy is supposedly so effed up that people should consider themselves lucky for having a job!  Congrats to all the beautiful people! What I KNOW: that’s BS! The economy isn’t that bad…trust me!  What’s bad is the work ethic of the “lucky” ones.  90 percent of most peoples work day is … Continue reading

Just a Reminder

Just a Reminder

Sometimes, I just sit back and wonder… WTH did I just get myself into! 12 more days and we will be 2 years into this relationship.  I’ve been sitting around, thinking, reminiscing about the roller-coaster ride it’s been.  Time has flown by!  I still can’t believe it’s been 2 years.  (Well, almost) When, I look … Continue reading

Today, I came across a show airing on Showtime that was talking about how giving your children an ethnic name could be a hindrance in their futures.  As an example, the show stated that they had conducted a case study that involved 5,000 resumes.  Each of the resumes where sent to the same companies and had identical … Continue reading

Google Me!

Google Me!

Working at Google would be the ideal job for me.  Rather, a career.  Every time that I see a posting for a job at Google Boston I apply…if I’m qualified. I’ve never gotten an interview though and it bums me out. I’m such a computer geek and it’s not a secret to anyone.  My boyfriend … Continue reading

I responded to an ad for a model with no height … Continue reading

Whip My Hair Naturally

Whip My Hair Naturally

I don’t know what really made me do it.  One day, I just decided, “this is it for me.  I’m not buying anymore of these.” The THESE that I am talking about is a Perm for my hair. I got my first perm at 6 years of age.  I had a lot of wavy (sometimes, “nappy”) … Continue reading

Happy New Year 2012

We made it! Whoop!! You should also be glad to know that one day recently I came across an article on Yahoo! saying that other Mayan writings predict events after 2012, so the world shouldn’t be ending either!!! Double whoop! Anyways, my NYE 2011 was quiet. I stayed home. I did stay up until midnight … Continue reading

Feliz Navi Blah!

Feliz Navi Blah!

My spirits are down in the dumps!  Not Ebenezer Scrooge down, but not so high either way.  Today, is only Christmas Eve but I definitely just got overly mad that there is NOTHING in my stocking or under the tree. Now, I’m grown and I’m not sure why it really means so much to me … Continue reading
