Still here, still angry

I haven't had much to say lately.  Well, actually, I've had lots to say, but it's all been angry and cranky. I'm still frustrated with my profession. I'm beyond weary of a profession that cuts its own throat by underbidding each other and undercharging for their work. I'm worn out by ridiculous deadlines and horrible communication and poor coordination and at least a hundred other things. I'm still working out how to improve it, or at least my part in it. I'm torn between wanting to tell interns the truth about what I've seen, and knowing that as a upper-level manager at a firm, everything and anything I write on a blog can be held against me.

So thanks for tuning in now and again.  I'm here.


  1. Hey Lulu - hang in there! I hope that you find your voice again and can share your struggle. This frustration is one of the most important things wracking our profession but everyone is too afraid to start the conversation.

  2. I admire your honesty, from some who has been reading for a while now, as a student and more recently as an intern. Any meaningful dialogue without it is impossible. I think your absolutely right, i'm seeing what your talking about first hand as I begin in the workplace. Change is needed but industry wide change isn't easy. But we are problem solvers at our core, this is just another problem that needs a solution, abet a large one . . . . thinking caps on. :)

  3. keep at it! thanks for letting us know your still around!
