What's Your MO? Measuring Instinct and Method of Operation (MO) With the Kolbe A Index

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I’m a real sucker for any sort of self-discovery/personal development/self-help type of assessment. And so...enter the Kolbe A Index -- an instrument designed to help us focus on our strengths, how we do things when we are free to do them our own way and when we are able to do what we do best.

On Being MIA, Moonology, Hormonology, MBTI and Gender Stereotypes, Response to Feedback

Coming back from being pretty MIA lately. For the past year or so, I've been tracking myself...here's why. A few brief thoughts on lunar/solar cycles, their effect on gender-based work/productivity and then a transition to MBTI, gender stereotypes and a candid reflection on this ENTP discovery. Ending with a response to two pieces of feedback I've recently received. Breakdown below the video.

A Cozy Chic Austin Stay At The Hyde Park Carriage House With Airbnb

Last week, Alex and I took a quick weekend road trip to Austin, TX to see some Joey Diaz Stand-Up. It was a pretty uneventful and chill weekend, except for that moment I slipped and fell backwards, head-first, into the bathtub after Alex was trying to steal back HIS toothbrush ... #marriedlife #longstory

 

Regardless... here are some pics of the Hyde Park Carriage House in Austin, TX. This is one of my favorite Airbnb stays to date. Spacious, well-decorated, clean and cozy. You can find this listing on Airbnb. Photos courtesy of me and my iPhoneX. Enjoy!

Engaging With My Creative Masculine Energy and Sharing Thoughts On Why I DON'T March

Engaging With My Creative Masculine Energy and Sharing Thoughts On Why I DON'T March

Thoughts on NOT marching and why I ultimately think it's OPPRESSIVE as evidenced by methods of "population control." Planned Parenthood being linked to the Nazi Eugenics movement and how it is used to "control population" of low-income, minority populations. Why "white women" (aka biological females who tend to carry a more creative feminine energy) are seen as complicit by "black women" (aka biological females who tend carry a more creative masculine energy) and an admission of responsibility. A non-religious argument for why I question the LGBTQIA movement (related to population control), and thoughts on how to RISE to the occasion without engaging in victimhood.

A 30th Birthday Throwback Post: Navigating the Sliding Scale of Family vs. Career

A 30th Birthday Throwback Post: Navigating the Sliding Scale of Family vs. Career

Originally published on the Yellow Co. Blog on September 13, 2017.  // This year, I officially crossed over into my 30s.  I chose to celebrate this occasion with my husband and the waves of the Pacific Ocean crashing into the rugged coastline of Big Sur. From the sheer cliffs that drop a thousand feet or more, to the sound of the waves thrashing at the granite below; the dichotomy of danger and beauty reflected the state of my inner world as I entered another decade of existence.

I spent my 20s planning my life away in an Excel spreadsheet. I planned to get married at the age of 24, have kids by 28, and be coasting in my career at the age of 30. What I didn’t plan for was a broken engagement, health issues, experiencing misalignment in my work, and choosing to pivot and become a student all over again.
