I’ve been waiting on pins and needles for some job/career related news and it didn’t come today. At this point, even if the answer is disappointing, I’m ready to hear it and move on with my solidly-in-place plan B (that really doesn’t deserve to be Plan B because it is a fantastic opportunity). Still, Plan A really tugs at my heartstrings. I have to keep reminding myself that the idea that choosing or getting the “right” thing leads to eternal happiness and sunshine and not getting the “right” thing leads to doom is entirely untrue.
I’m both puzzled and annoyed that vineyard vines emailed me THREE TIMES today to tell me about their free shipping. Their Cyber Monday deal sucked and now they apparently think that everyone will get super excited about saving $10.
Joke’s on you, vv, as I won’t be buying anything!
I didn’t realize it until today, but this is a big week for me.
This week I will
- Make a decision re: my job for the next 3-6 years
- Probably get the results of my written boards back
Finishing up my charts from the other day and adding critical care time to some of the visits. The MICU attending was a pain in my ass and I had to argue with him repeatedly over slam-dunk MICU admissions. Keep assholing, buddy, every minute that you do is an extra minute of critical care time I can bill.
Why everybody so mad about lululemon? If you don’t like it, don’t support the company.
The amount of outrage I keep seeing over an athletic company is astonishingly laughable.
It’s because they’re basically fat shaming women/perpetuating a myth that a woman’s thighs…
Oh my godddd y’all. She’s outdone herself.
would someone be so kind as to educate me about why people are so pissed at lulu? did they do something beyond their website, or are people just pissed about their models? if the latter, i’m going to go out on a limb and mention the fact that i’ve always admired the FIT, not THIN, models online. no, they’re not body builders. but yes, i’m going to go ahead and say that they look like women who are avid yogis, runners, and spinners, as the apparel implies, are their target audience.
if we’re mad at lulu for their fit models, why aren’t we outraged at nike*, adidas, lucy, lorna jane, under armour**, and the likes, for the same exact reason? how DARE companies hire men and women who, in the mind of the company, personify the target demographic?
now that i’m done with my rant… will someone please tell me why we’re all supposed to hate lululemon now and idiots if we don’t?
* never mind the sweatshops.
** LOL at under armour’s legging models. no visible muscle to speak of.
For background, I suggest reading this: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/12/03/lululemon-rubbing-thighs-window_n_4379280.html
There’s a difference between hiring and playing to your ideal demographic and fat-shaming those who fall outside of it. The CEOs comments are reprehensible.
In contrast, Nike goes up to size 18-20 in some of their pants (and 16-18 in all of them). Zella, the Nordstrom brand, has a plus size line. And I’ve never seen an Adidas ad fat shame a woman.
I love my PureBarre studio SO MUCH. Today I wandered in early and my instructor literally bounced on her toes and clapped her hands that I was there. It’s awesome to feel loved. It’s also awesome to have a butt you could bounce a quarter off of ;)
I am just really down in the dumps right now - and don’t have as much reason to be as I am pretending I do. My weekend is sort of stretching before me endlessly and it will definitely be lonely.
How many barre classes is it appropriate to take in one weekend, do you think?
Alotted extra 15 minutes for arrival when asking BFF to estimate travel time. She built in 15 minute cushion as well. Arriving 30 mins early. OCD FTW!
Also, had a shitty glass of sauv blanc, since everyone who commented instructed me to do so.
What do you do when you have 2 more hours in the airport and 3 hours in flight before you get home and all you want to do is cry about your stupid job search?
Asking for a friend.
