Not far enough

Things you hear while fighting for equality: "We've come so far, what more do you want?" "Just stop whining." "Why is there a women's march when there's already equality?" "That racism stuff happened so long ago." Well, if you ever go to Atlanta—which you so should—you'd be doing yourself a disservice if you don't pay... Continue Reading →

Seventeen too Many

Seventeen. Seventeen was the age I was my senior year in high school. Seventeen is the amount of times I would write Mrs. Courtney LastNameOfCrush in my notebook.

Do Your Job & Do It Well

It is a simple concept: we all have a job to do in this world. We are mothers, lawyers, sanitation engineers, writers, models, telemarketers, and doctors. We are Starbucks baristas and Cheesecake Factory servers. We are managers, travel agents, tech support operators, and marketing specialists. We are students and yoga instructors and starving artists. The... Continue Reading →
