Me Too…

I was sexually harassed in the work place at 16. It was my first job and I was working in a small hardware store. There were two others who were a year or two older than me (a guy and a girl who happened to be dating), and a few older gentlemen. I actually really enjoyed working there because the hours were great and I liked the people. We were an eclectic group, but it was a good working environment.

So Long 2012…

I don't know about you, but for me, 2012 has flown past. It's been full of disappointment, inspiration and hopefully drive, drive to be and do something better. I have been disappointed by the human nature this year. Whether they have been persons close to me who have disappointed (and they have), or these horrible… Continue reading So Long 2012…
