I’m just saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah busy

May 4, 2017 // 0 Comments

When did it happen? When did such a travesty against humankind take place? When did aioli replace tomato sauce as the go-to accompanying condiment for hot chips? I know there are probably heaps of pro-aioli people shaking their heads in disappointment at the lack of complexity in my condiment choice. But hey! I’m a simple person. And I fucking [...]

The super amazing power of meditation and mindfulness

March 24, 2017 // 0 Comments

I’ve decided that 2017 is my year of self-improvement. Like when I’m 80 years old, I’d like to think back to 2017 and remember be like “dayuuuummm 2017 was where that chart of my self-improvement that I keep framed in my living room really spiked up and reflected the sales “forecast” of any aspiring start-up in 2017”, ie. Be a [...]

The 4 types of ‘Horrible Employees’

March 1, 2017 // 1 Comment

For all these years of my corporate life, I’ve complained, then I’ve moaned, then I’ve whinged, then I’ve sighed, then I’ve sarcastically learnt to deal with my issues with work by writing about them on a public blog like some corporate-martyr. I’ve always felt that it was ME who was getting the raw deal. That it was just me against [...]

How to balance work friends and not get slapped

October 11, 2016 // 0 Comments

“ERGHMEGHERRRD I heard that she slapped you, is that true???” No that’s not a quote, overheard in the locker of a high school girls’ locker room [interestingly I don’t really have many crazy American-style, girls’ locker room stories despite going to an all-girl school for 10 years….in fact the craziest thing I remember was when we [...]

I’m bored, I’m bored, I’m boredom boredom boredom

November 10, 2015 // 1 Comment

You know you’re bored at work when you spend an afternoon rejigging your To Do List and then write down “rejig to do list” on your To Do List and immediately cross it out to give you some sense of having achieved something. [as an aside, I’ve now managed to confuse myself as to whether I double space after a sentence ends or do I usually [...]

The Official Dictionary of Management Speak and Office Jargon

August 13, 2015 // 1 Comment

  Have you ever just wished for once, just once, you could know how loud you are when you blow your nose? Seriously, it’s like one of life’s little mysteries. You’ll never be able to know how obnoxious (or blissful????) your nose-blowing could sound. And for self-conscious people like myself, the lack of knowledge I have about my [...]

Using the mysterious power of silence to win arguments

May 6, 2015 // 1 Comment

I’ve always just assumed that I downright suck at conversation. It all started when I was five and whilst on the phone to my dad, my sister punched me in the arm whilst I was on the phone [for no reason at all…well no reason apart from the fact that I had made a hole in the wall which I promptly blamed on her] – ever since then, I’ve [...]

Where are all the mediocre women?

April 23, 2015 // 6 Comments

I feel like I’m lucky enough to be living in a renaissance for women in the workplace. Now there are millions of books, forums, active networking opportunities, dedicated to progressing women in various workplaces [notably some workplaces being more progressed than others….*erghm* every closed shop medical profession]. It’s awesome and I do [...]
