In one of TED's talks: "People who shit on you are usually full of it and unworthy of your time."
On this day a year ago I was free. I quit my last job and it was the best feeling in all those long months. It was the best thing ever! For a while. I had the luxury to quit my job. It was impossible to work there. Every day mobing and humiliation. It just … Continue reading Being free can be the best thing ever
Finally there was some closure with the newspaper. But there wouldn't be one, if the attorney haven't worked on it. What kind of world do we live in? You are a freelancer for the newspaper and only the first month it goes ok (let's say sort of ok). In the second month, they're starting to … Continue reading Newspaper closure
A while ago I read the article about leadership. As a leader you have to be an example. You have to have good workers surrounding you and don't be afraid of them. Quite the opposite is in my country. If someone is good or even better, they don't let him be. Everyone should be equal. … Continue reading Ideas
For the last two months I've been freelancer for science at one of bigger newspapers in my country. They were really interested about topics from my field and first two articles were published quite fast. Then it started to go south. I have dozens of experience in writing scientific articles, a bit less on the … Continue reading Misleading?
It's been a while since my last post. For those who thought or maybe hoped that I got a job, noup, that's not the case. I just went on vacations 🙂 and now I'm back.

Faculty is connected with you being a student and so you feel like one. It's really funny that you don't overgrow this 🙂 I was there for a PhD … Continue reading Revisiting the past
A year ago I was so happy. I finally got a job in laboratory! It was totally new, since I've never worked in a health care area, but laboratory work! That's almost a dream job. Yeah right. Wake up! The reality caught up with me six months later... I applied for a job, got to … Continue reading The worst decision ever with a good life experience
The last time I wrote about equality between genders and here is another proof that it is a lot harder to be a woman. A guy did an experiment where he changed places with a woman colleague. He wrote her correspondence with the customers while she wrote his correspondence. Her ideas were rejected while she … Continue reading Working woman against working man
In my hunt for a job I’ve got tons of rejection letters. When I started searching for a job few years ago, there was less replies to my applications comparing to today. Today you get a letter, that you’re not selected. Most of the time. There are still few companies, which ignores you and don't … Continue reading Letter to unsuccessful candidate
