At the grand old age of 35 I’m still figuring out how to be an adult. One thing I wish someone had warned me of is that one of the hardest parts will be feeding yourself. A challenge I’ve had for years is… I just don’t know what to pack for lunch at the office. Homies, what do you pack for lunch?
It started with a workplace baby shower with a salad potluck directive: everyone bring something you can put on a salad. As we stood around munching, while cards were opened, we thought, “Hey, this was REALLY easy, and it’s healthy, too! We need to do this more often!” It helps us all eat healthier and it makes “packing lunch” as simple as throwing a random fridge vegetable or a bag of dried cranberries or can of black beans in your bag.
I’d like to submit a question that maybe some Homies could answer: what are the best places to be a digital nomad in Latin America or the West Indies? Right now I’ve read good reviews about Medellin, Colombia, and Antigua, Guatemala, but I’d like to expand my knowledge in order to hopefully make the leap to digital nomad living this year.
You may have read that tagline and thought, what could the difference be? Women are women. I agree with you! We should all be treated the same. But as study after study shows, weight bias is a very real issue that millions of people face daily.
I just found out I’m pregnant! Incidentally, I was between rounds of interviews for my next job, which I start next week. The thought of telling them I need to go on maternity leave seven months after starting my job terrifies me. I’ve been let go due to lack of work twice in the past year, so I’m scared. And now there’s an additional life counting on me. When and how do you tell your employer you’re pregnant?
I have worked in retail off and on for 10 of the past 15 years, and it’s time to quit. Standing/bending/folding all day is aggravating a pre-existing back problem. How do I break out of service jobs and go on to other fulfilling careers?
I am a young (woman) musician embarking on a career in music performance. So much of the job, particularly for women, involves looking sexy. I am also an introverted person who is dealing with quite a bit of social and career anxiety (making me even less inclined to “put on a show”). Those of you in similar positions, how do you conform to the industry expectations of how you should look and act without making yourself uncomfortable?
At first, I felt a bit ashamed of being a thirty-year-old barista, because I was told that wasn’t what one was “supposed” to do at that age. But… for the first time in years, I felt alive again.
