“If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people.”
I started “Half-Way to a Mid-Life Crisis” the summer after I graduated from university with a B.A. in English and Political Science (not exactly the most career-grabbing fields, so it’s no wonder I spent three years job hunting).
As I dealt with my own post-grad frustration and anxiety, I began to notice a pattern in the lives of those around me . . . we were all struggling, but we all somehow felt that we were living our problems in isolation.
Guilty and fearful, we hid our concerns about the future — convinced that everyone else simply had this whole “life thing” figured out already.
My Feminism-with-a-capital-F has taught me that we are never alone and that, most importantly, for anything to change, we must speak our truth. Again and again. And loudly!
I’m currently back in school finishing my MLIS, and working my dream job — as a children’s librarian!
So, come engage with us! Comment, post and answer questions — we want to hear from you!
