Quick, messy graphic to explain a concept that seems obvious to me:
We shouldn’t be helping women because they’re related to someone else. We shouldn’t be helping women because someone else cares about them. We should be helping women because they are people.
We should be helping women for their own sake.
Why is that a hard concept for people to grasp?
Also, that client was high as balls. Think that’s a clinical term that I can put in my progress notes? “Ct was high as balls”
I'm gonna miss him!
- Me: your hand sanitizer just shot me in the eye.
- The Boss: that's what she said.
- Me: oh is that what they're calling it now?
- Him: *spits out banana*
- This whole thing took place after I bathed in said sanitizer and wiped my book (gasp, my book was infected) with Clorox because my last client has scabies.
And so it begins…
The big boss just called me from my desk to see what my schedule was for the next two days so that she can get it covered an send me to a training. I don’t know if I’m happy to not have my schedule for the next two days or grumpy that I’ll be in a two-day training!!
Dear Ten-Year-Old Self,
Before you ask me when you have your first kiss or if you’ll ever have a boyfriend, I need to tell you some more important stuff first. What’s more important than a first kiss, you ask? Plenty. First of all, don’t let that kid in your class, Danny, who called you fat, make you self-consciously wear oversized sweatshirts for the next four years to hide your body. That kid is horrible and years from now he will be boring and bald and trying to get in touch with you to come to the set of the TV show you work on. No, you don’t work on Cheers. That show’s not on the air anymore. That would’ve been awesome, though. Another thing: Say thank you, always. Gratitude is the closest thing to beauty manifested in an emotion. When you’re grateful, people are attracted to you. Also: Make sure you appreciate Mom and Dad. Yes, they never seem to let you do anything now except read books. Once you turn 18 you’ll never get to live with them again, and you’ll live far away, and you will miss them so much it hurts. Next: Learn forgiveness and bestow it generously. Finally: Don’t let anyone give you any crap. Mastering a balance of these last two will take you a lifetime, so you had better get started now. (x) - Mindy Kaling
