I told my manager I want to work somewhere else

Now the hard part is just finding another black woman to report to. It feels good – there’s like a fire in my belly. I can talk openly with a person that I respect about my career and where its going. She’s a great resource.

I’m going to be meeting Amber tonight. My baby sister. This is crazy!

Work – a place where black girls go to feel strong and limitless. where nobody assumes the worst of you, nobody calls you difficult only because you are critical, and nobody uses privilege and patriarchy to run their organization. This is what I’m looking for. Universe give me the strength to find it or the conviction to build it.

Time is flying

I haven’t checked in here in a while. I’ve been writing a lot which is great – mostly in my journal. Things with Marion are going well.

I had a really rough week at work. Ugh. It was a week where I felt so small, defeated, cornered, attacked. Lots of terrible feelings. Ultimately, I have come to the decision that it is time for me to move on from my current job. The hard part is telling my manager. I really like her a lot. We’ve grown close. She’s supportive. She makes the work fun. But, it isn’t enough for me right now. I’m feeling that I need a major transition. Could be a new industry. Could be a new city. I’m not sure yet. I hope to gather more when I finish the joy equation with Molly Mahar. It’s a cool program and I’m happy that I am making time and doing the work.

My personhood is now more important than work, than feeling “successful.” I told my partner that I was infuriated to think that I gave up time with her, was short and impatient with her, for a person /company that ultimately think I’m a shady person.

No.

I’m.

Done.

I’m.

Done.

I’m.

Done.

I’m.

Done.

Self, make the move. It’s time.

I am going to be meeting my baby sister for the first time next week. It’s so exciting! I just want to do big sis, little sister stuff. I’ll be sure to take a lot of pictures. I’m going to see what I was up to in June of 2015.
