So I’ve decided I’m no longer going to actively try to not be found on Twitter by my coworkers.
I’ve spent the last 5 years going out of my way to keep my Twitter a safe space (not using my real name, never sharing my employer) for fear of retaliation. And while my tweets probably are inappropriate for the office, I do mean what I tweet. And I think it’s all important.
My thoughts are mine whether they’re about sex, marketing, astrology, organizational psychology, pop culture, hair, whatever. I hate the idea that I have to have a curated,“professional” presence online. I’m over it.
By no means am I going to go around encouraging people to follow me lmfao but I’m not hiding anymore. We all think about these things and there’s no shame in discussing them.

(1/2) I met Yvonne Orji at a WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT CONFERENCE. She was about to give her speech and I asked for a pic while she was waiting. She said no. I respect her privacy, move on and take my seat in the front row.

She gets to the part of her speech about being persistent.
(2/2) She’s like “I only got to where I got because I never took no for an answer.”

And then she gestures over to me and says something like “That girl wanted a picture with me, but I said no. If she were more intentional about what she wants, maybe she’d have her pic.”
In the moment I was like uhh that was rude. I thought she might come up to me and be like oh I was joking and take the pic but no. That put a bad taste in my mouth about her forever.

And I didn’t even want the pic that bad! I just thought it would be cool to post on my story 😭
