Have you ever gotten to the “Skills” section of your resumé and been a little embarrassed?
Sometimes you want to say, “Sure, my skills are pretty much talking and writing and doing normal stuff, but REALLY, REALLY WELL.” Yeah, you can’t really put that either. You need proof. You need quantification. More

Monday night found me six cookies in, hair plastered to my face, mascara smeared across my white pillowcases, a
maybe definitely too-full wine glass on my bedside table and a fervid desire to make like Jennifer Garner and go from 22 to 30 overnight. I had a long day at work only to come home to an email letting me know my dreams were crushed. More

It’s December! People are getting lazy. You can use this time to do a lot of baking or whatever it is that people do, or you can use this time to sprint ahead of everyone, and get some mental space to design the new year to your liking.
Now, Start by brainstorming the most awesome life imaginable. More
It’s well-known that a lot of male boxers don’t have sex before a fight. Apparently, a nice, full set of balls gives you that aggressive edge in the ring.
What do women boxers do? I like to think they seduce a pool boy at the hotel every hour or so and steal his fundamental life-energy. Or they have sex with their girlfriends, read some bell hooks, have a nice cup of herbal tea, and get a good night’s sleep. More
Sheryl Sandberg wants to take the taboo out of a working woman’s pregnancy by getting it all out on the table. At her Facebook post she regularly speaks with female employees and candidates about their pregnancy plans. More
How is negotiating different for women? Well, for one, we do less of it and should do more of it. I’m sure you’ve heard that. I’m sure you’ve also read that people (both men and other women) like us less when we negotiate, although I have a hard time caring when I have enough money to drink Macallan 18 the way I used to drink Sutter Home.
I think there may be a few other gender differences that are less talked about. More
I am really tired of business advice that, if followed precisely, allows women to attempt to compete to be second place at best. Let’s make our voices deeper! Let’s take up more space when we sit! Let’s clench our fists when we walk into a room, as though we’re ready for a fistfight! I have actual boxing experience (see Bullish Life: What I Learned From Being Captain of My College Debate and Boxing Teams at the Same Time), and I am not going to win any kind of fistfight, ever. This is a losing game. More
I’ve been really depressed lately.
It’s a combination of factors, huge (and hugely stressful) life changes, out-of-whack brain chemicals, and general malaise. I’m burned out, but this isn’t the sex worker burnout I’ve written about before, in fact, when it comes to garden-variety burnout, sex work is one of the best coping tools I have. More
If you don’t want to work in your chosen field, then changing course isn’t stepping back. I mean, it’s stepping back in the sense you would step back from a fire. Or from marrying the wrong person. It’s kind of the only path to where you want to go, right? So there’s no point in thinking about stepping “back.” More
You can be raised by very nice people — even very nice, very responsible people — and still be raised with totally self-defeating values about money, work, education, navigating institutions, and planning your life. More
