For the Days When You Totally Feel Like the Uncool Kid Again

For the Days When You Totally Feel Like the Uncool Kid Again

“We don’t think you’re the right fit for us.” I had hung up the phone hours earlier, but those words kept ringing in my ears. It didn’t matter that the woman on the other end of the line used a gentle tone. It didn’t matter that she had some really nice things to say about […]

How to Be Worry-Free in Times Like These – #TellHisStory

How to Be Worry-Free in Times Like These - #TellHisStory

It was 11:58 p.m. on December 31, 1999. Most people I knew were just minutes away from “partying like it was 1999.” It was New Year’s Eve, baby. And it was a big one. Meanwhile, I sat at my work desk on full alert, eyes glued to my computer screen. I sat in a newsroom […]
