Pretending I’m Not a Woman, on Betrayals Large and Small

:: I can laugh about it now, but I have never forgotten how it felt to have sent an email with the intent to make the world a better place, to have received praise in private, and then to have been humiliated in public. 

Sometimes Things Just Die, on Tragedies Large and Small

:: In 24 hours, the truth was before us, a truth that had probably been there all along. Sometimes things just die.

Fear of Dying, Fear of Living

:: Today, when this fear of death hit me, I realized that I’ve been carrying these thoughts around in the back of my mind for so long that I can’t remember when they started. Perhaps two years of pandemic, of living under a shroud of death, has created this pall.

:: The best jobs give their workers agency, and those workers tend to be happy They get to be creative, and come up with neat ideas, and execute those ideas. Whereas jobs where workers do not have agency tend to have workers who burn out.
