Promoted

Well, they did it. My employer went and promoted me. Somehow they decided that I have the knowledge, experience, and skills to lead a group of dispatchers daily… Never did I imagine 14 years ago when I first stepped into the very same center that I would some day return and become a leader.  372 more words

My first attempt at explaining the "-isms" of the world.

Sexism, Ableism, Racism.  Too often these words are thrown around, directed at individuals.  This needs to stop; it’ s confusing — it really is.

When I actually googled the meaning of “ism,” what came up was:  “a distinctive practice, system or philosophy, typically a political ideology or an artistic movement.”  This is not a statement one would ever use to describe an individual (unless you’re Kanye West describing yourself, of course).  805 more words

Introduction

Don't Let the Door...

I’m a Texan – 5th Generation, which puts part of my family here some 30 years after the state gained its independence – an independence hard won through the sacrifice of some of my family (if you really stretch the term “relative” and ignore some basic genealogical truths, but I digress (or I rant, one of those)).   1,121 more words
