Being Taken Seriously




Can women be taken seriously in anything in comparison to men? It seems like in different sectors of life women seem to be the laughable gender. I’m definitely drawing this from my personal experiences. Hence the name of my blog. Anyway I have a couple of stories of what I have to share to emphasize my strong opinion. This man that I will call Fred wanted me to do publicity for him, while having a conversation out of nowhere he says you have a nice voice. Were you concentrating on my plan to promote or my “nice” voice? Apparently I was not taken seriously. Another experience I call this person to congratulate him on finding a residency as a new doctor and he asks me if I’m interested in the medical field, knowing that I went to Baruch a business school. What! Somebody’s off and it is not me. I was not taken seriously. To the men reading this take women more seriously. Let’s bring back intellect in conversations again. Peace I’m out!

Clarity




Figuring out things can be annoying. However it is needed. Clarity. Recently I had an April birthday and wondered what needs to be done. It is now June, half of the year gone. Clarity. What needs to get done and what needs to be forgotten and who needs to be forgotten. On to the next one. Making moves can be time consuming and taxing but it needs to be done. As I write this post, I reflect on my  victories and my defeats. I have grown and this is definitely given me, Clarity. Six months down, 6 months to go. I’m game.
