Well, I guess some of you probably think I am crazy for that last blog post, but I think I was just irritated yesterday and it all came out in one long, rambling, didn't-make-sense blog. Sorry for that. Here is a little explanation.....
I hate when people automatically discredit you based on stereotypes. I get it often and I guess I have a lot against me. I am a girl. From the South. I was in a sorority. And I work in a man's world...politics. Now, I don't claim to be the smartest person in the world because I'm not by any means whatsoever. But, I am not an idiot. And I hate it when people assume that because they are stereotyping me! My knowledge is like an iceberg. You can only see about 10% of it and the rest is under the surface. Seriously, if you look under the water you'll see it, or if your dumb enough to crash into it, you'll know it! Now, like I said in my last post, I like to watch people and guess their stories, but only for fun. I talk about people just like everyone else, but purely just because. I don't make assumptions that cause me to form an opinion of someone, I know everyone has a story that has been edited my many different things. It is just important to observe, but let people reserve the right to tell their own story. And that is all I have for this soapbox, come back another day and I will probably have another one. I promise since tomorrow is Friday, it will be fun and lighthearted. Because it is FOOTBALL FRIDAY and ALABAMA is #1 in the AP Poll!


  1. Great posts on stereotyping/profiling people. I've had similar experiences in other parts of the US. People want to think a Southern, caucasian female is this or that... It's a strong reminder to me to not assume I know ANYTHING about a person by looking at the color of their skin, or the sound of their voice, or their hometown or whatever. We are all icebergs, as you say, and cannot be appreciated without being known as an individual.

  2. I wish there was a "like" button on here like there is on Facebook. Kudos!

  3. I hate when things like this happen in a work place!
