In July I missed my promo to SM. A woman has been preferred even if she was underqualified (my MD's words), as at Accenture we have quotas for women. I'm interviewing with Deloitte, they told me I'll help building the practice. In the meantime I was assured by my MD that in December I'll get the promo. I don't really care changing company, even if I've built a network, I don't think I need to wait if I can. Your thoughts?

Ex-bf posted on social media to say he was so turned on thinking about new gf during an international flight that he went to the restroom so he could [ahem ahem], then he used the resulting “fluids” to draw a heart on the bathroom mirror. HE DREW IT WITH HIS STUFF. Important context: he’s 33 freaking years old, has PhD, and we broke up partly because he couldn’t express affection. So, this is… evidence of personal growth?!🥴 I can’t even be jealous because I’m just so like wtf, 🤮🙄🤦♀️!

Unpopular opinion. I’m a young woman of color. I think we’re all focusing on race when it comes to violence in America when the issue is actually with men. Men of all colors have been terrorizing America yet everyone is arguing about white supremacy.
