Creativity and the search for the familiar feels

Image from Buzzfeed After working for ten years in corporate, I can feel that my creativity level has greatly diminished. I used to find inspiration in everything. But now, writing and trying to create something is like pulling teeth. I have written about wanting to go back to writing in so many posts in this … Continue reading Creativity and the search for the familiar feels

…being a good boss

Hey, are you the big cheese in your company? Or, are you the manager -- with people reporting to you on a daily basis, usually at your beck and call. Do you juggle project after project, potently laced with various individuals' Performance Appraisals and futures thrown in between?

Money matters and the search for part-time work continues

Sorry for the intermittent post. I am really having a rough week at work, I think I am losing all the good mojo I deposited when I was starting. Add to that new albeit very minor health concerns that just kept on popping one after the other. Yes, the might be not life threatening but … Continue reading Money matters and the search for part-time work continues

I am a Rockstar…! (…but that’s only Inside my Head)

Here's a bit of rebellion, the perfect pick-me-upper when you are holed up inside a very staid environment: I wore my new plaid dress (a gift from my cousin) and paired it with black tights and studded goth boots to work last Friday.

I've just finished the final step of my regularization process. Finally, after seven months of stress and a very long-list of to do's, I will be officially part of the company. You know in spite the fact that I christened the company "grindhouse", I love it to pieces. The company represents second chances for me. … Continue reading Happy thoughts (Day 13/ January 13, 2012/ Project 365)

It’s lonely at the top (Day 05/ 05 January 2012/ Project 365)

Since I was a kid, I wanted to be successful--have a fancy title appended to my name, a good salary package, the corner office plus the feeling of importance and achievement usually associated with being "one of the top brass". I've been through a lot, career-wise. I worked as a reporter (my first love) only … Continue reading It’s lonely at the top (Day 05/ 05 January 2012/ Project 365)
