So You Want To Be A Corporate Drop Out?

So You Want To Be A Corporate Drop Out?

When I started house sitting for neighbors, I would make homemade dog treats to include as an add-on package to my $5 a day home care charge, which eventually became a homemade dog treat business that was able to carry me through 3rd grade with a couple hundred bucks in my savings account.  

The Sisterhood of We

Sisterhood - a word that I associate with magical blue jeans that fit multiple shaped teenage girls (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, go read the book). For others, it may mean their sorority, their actual sisters, or their best friends from high school. The word can stir up emotions of pride in our identity and for others, it can stir up jealousy, betrayal, anxiety or feeling ‘left-out’ by a group we’ve longed to be a part of.

Confidence v. Apperances

When I was 10 a girl in my class told me that I should eat more salads so I could lose weight and look like her. I remember as a kid in swim team the boys laughing when I would walk past in my swimsuit because my thighs jiggled. In high school, girls would complain about having to buy a size 10 prom dress because that was a “fat size”, when in reality I was working out, dieting and praying I would be able to buy a dress that would be below a size 12.
