We all know at least one person we would qualify as a “bitch”. The type is unmistakeable: uptight, unkind, fake, aggressive, and totally lacking in social courtesy. It’s not just a personality trait. You can “act” like a bitch without actually being one, but I digress. I am only bringing this up because it seems … More The Bitch Syndrome
Last year I wrote a piece on the #MeToo Movement. At that time and still today I am very much surprised by how many people have come forward to share their horror stories and by extension how many have been accused, unjustly or not. It has definitely revolutionized the way men and women interact. I … More The Age of Persecution
I am not one to make New Year’s resolutions as I don’t believe in them. Nobody should have to wait until the last day of the year to set new goals, which are basically promises to ourselves that we don’t end up keeping. The gym membership starting on Jan 1st will most likely be a … More A Little Less in 2019

Yesterday, I and many other women, I assume, received via Facebook Messenger the following text: After much reflection, I decided not to share it and not to change my profile picture as indicated. Why? To me, this signifies that women should disappear to make a point when in fact, there is no better time in … More About that black screen… My answer is: No.
People place a lot more importance on coffee than I ever did, even though it seems everyone thinks I am addicted. My stats in case anyone cares: I drink on average 2 cups a day, and by drinking I mean, actual consumption. God knows I will refill my cup more times than I care to … More First I Coffee, Then I Adult
From the outside it’s easy to think that he has got it all figured out. Because his hair is gelled and his cheeks are intentionally flushed, he must not have a care in the world. As if it were expected his demons would be worn like a scarlet letter pinned to his chest. They assume … More Anxiety – His Story
