Long Read. My father vanished when I was 7.  The experience made me who I am.

Today is the last day of Amazon Prime Day.  I’m not going to give you any hype about amazing products or repeatedly implore you to ‘shop early and often’ for the best deals.  Frankly, all the hype gives me a major case of the eye rolls.  But there are a handful of items that I picked up this year because grabbing an item I already love at a discount is a no-brainer.  Here they are.

    I have ALL THE FEELINGS about the “what do we owe our jobs?” article. At a former employer, the male partners ALWAYS left events we hosted and the female partners stayed to clean up. It upset me as a junior associate, and when I raised it, they laughed it off. Physical labor, not emotional, in this case, but even so, speaks to a larger issue related to culture and unreasonable expectations… Anyway, *rant over*. 🙂

    That long read. Wow. And uff.

    That is indeed a must read. This quote–whoosh–so true: “The better you are, the worse it gets,” she said. “No one likes a successful woman.”

    As a lawyer dealing a lot with other lawyers who exhibit BAD behavior, I often wonder if the opposing counsel would try that behavior on a man and most of the time, conclude they wouldn’t.

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

The Find: My Best Workout Shorts

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts.
