5. you can do it
I'm not sure if the spirit of freedom that comes with Memorial Day or the fact that I'm graduating with a Masters Degree in T-5 days, but I'm feeling all kinds of empowered. Today we celebrate and remember our soldiers who fought for our country's freedom and the women who stepped up to work during a time of need. I'm honoring both.
My calloused and less than manicured hands may be from this week's yard work rather than working job, but nonetheless I am thankful for those women who have pushed me to think outside the box of social expectations. I would not consider myself a radical feminist; but ladies, Rosie the Riveter started the revolution in the workforce just as Coco Chanel in fashion. (yes, you were wondering how I was going to tie in that one.) So express yourself and rejoice in the freedom. I am by wearing denim on denim and have traded the steel-toed boots for open-toed heels.
