In my 3rd job now out of college w/ three freakin’ degrees in science, and I can’t find a place. I thought somehow the biological sciences would be a better place than electronics for a girl like me. Never in my entire adult life in "non-tradional" jobs have I ever run into such overt sexism. Now, I’m being harassed.
I just took a call from my unbelievably terrible boss. He said if I didn’t start "liking him" more, I probably ought to quit.
Like the butterflies I found today on my lunch break, flying around a partly open greenhouse, trying to get out, sometimes one needs to be shown the way.
I fuckin’ quit.
FlickR thinks this is my most interesting photo. As the saying goes, "May you live in interesting times."
Update: I have a most excellent job now. 😀
Update2: I got laid off after only 4 months – note to self: don’t start a business on your credit cards.
