This totally cracked me up. It’s a great tongue and cheek look at the freelance writer’s life (well, this particular freelance writer doesn’t work in the buff but, otherwise, it’s a great look!). Since I’m getting back to it it this week, hearing this song seemed fitting. And as I looked at my to dos, I thought I’d ask you for ideas on one of them. Here we go– my big To Dos for work this week are:
rounding up some style innovators for an article
learning about a new alternative therapy for an upcoming health piece
deciding on topics for two more upcoming health articles
grading papers– the students in my Body Image seminar recently conducted body image interviews with people in their lives and then wrote papers on what they learned
updating my Smashing the Beauty Box workshop (I am taking it to NC State University on March 18)
updating a book proposal so it can head out the door
writing a speech for an awards ceremony at Winthrop University (I’m not getting an award. I’m just lucky enough to speak at the award ceremony)
AND THE TO DO THAT I’ D LOVE FOR YOU TO SHARE ANY SUGGESTIONS OR LINKS ABOUT…
brainstorming for an upcoming talk on the ways that women of color still face discrimination and what can be done– locally and in a more global sense– to create more equity. I’m looking for concrete, documented cases for now so if you have any links or suggestions for specific cases to google (ie: the racial and sexual discrimination case brought against NASCAR last year, etc), I’d love to hear them. I am also really interested in organizations or individuals around the country that are doing powerful work in empowering women and minorities. Just hit comment and share your ideas. Thanks!
Here’s hoping that my brain still works, but I did put my cell phone in the fridge earlier and left the baby’s bottle on the counter so all bets are off.
