I’m on the metro north coming back from a panel in Poughkeepsie I got to sit on as part of my job. i was up at five am for this and when the organizer thanked me for making the trip i was like “are you kidding me? im so happy for the opportunity” if you know me you probably know i was home for 8 years after becoming a mom partly because daycare is expensive as shit in NYC on a nonprofit salary and then once the kids were both in public school it took me two years to find a job willing to overlook the gap in my resume. And now im on a train car full of girls from Vassar and i just want to stand up and give them a lecture about the reality that awaits them upon graduation should they perchance want a family AND a career but I’ll just sit here quietly and vent my feelings in an Instagram caption.

Marble Cowl Done! ✅ I’ll be listing it in my Etsy Shop while walking to the subway 🚇 and listening to my podcasts 🎧 in just a few! PS for whatever reason this particular skein of yarn was a little shorter than the others so I knocked $5 off the price. It fits a little snug. —�—�—�-

I’m on my way to the post office to mail a scarf to be included in the raffle at this amazing fundraiser organized by @queenscapes for Puerto Rico #qu4pr 🇵🇷 🇵🇷. See all the details below: ・・・
While major improvements have already been made in Puerto Rico, the island is still lacking resources and access to get items dispersed. So in an effort to help our neighbors abroad the @Queenscapes team has partnered with @TheVisualVandal1 to create "Queens for Puerto Rico" #QU4PR a relief benefit for the victims of Hurricane Maria.
Come out at 6:00pm Wednesday night, November 8th to @LaGloriaNYC Restaurant located at 86-13 Northern Boulevard in Jackson Heights, Queens for an
event that will feature photographs and artwork from a multitude of Queens based artists, raffle giveaways donated by Queens owned businesses and live music from D.J.’s, @ButchRock718, @DJDubbcity & @DJStephCakes.
Also we’ll have a LIVE PHOTO BOOTH on deck provided by @snapshots_photo_booth_rentals_

100% money and items donated for the event will go to Puerto Rican charities, @ConPRmetidos & The Puerto Rican Family Institute.

Minimum donation for entry to event is $10.00. You can make a donation directly on http://www.conprmetidos.org or pay at the door on day of event.
La Gloria will accept the following relief items, toiletries, first aid kits, cleaning supplies, work gloves, hand sanitizer and canned goods, but will not accept clothes of any kind.
