Keep Looking

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

—Steve Jobs

Temporary Relief

“People choose to stop when they have suffered more than enough, and when circumstances lend a hand. And, when the possibility of self-control becomes as attractive — more attractive — than any other possibility, including temporary relief.”

“For all of you “housewives” out there, which of course is a term I employ that means anybody who has ever had to clean up somebody else’s shit and not been paid for it…”

Thank you for everything you did. Especially regarding Health Insurance and preexisting conditions. I felt safe with you as President. And you are super intelligent.

mistakes

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
― Albert Einstein

Last week I had a day where I made a lot of mistakes and my new boss was pointing them out to me. The mistakes were all things I had never dealt with before, or little comedies of errors.

Age Discrimination

Nurse Jackie is one of my favorite shows. A couple weeks ago I finished watching the show; didn’t want it to end.

***SPOILER***

Loved this clip where character Gloria Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) is looking for a new job and the woman who is interviewing her doesn’t care about Akalitus’ life experience; the employer wants someone with a Master’s Degree.

Have you ever experience age discrimination while looking for a new job? It’s awful and so insulting.

I adore employers who hire human beings over 50-years-young.
