It’s Not Book Related but ….

It’s true.  I have been missing in action and slacking on the reading front but as we all know, life sometimes takes over and … well….. I roll with the punches.  So, because it’s been so busy and I’ve been rolling with the punches most of my reading has been articles, newspapers….. I have not picked up a book in …. well….. months!!! Sad to say!

I am fully aware that in order to stay relevant I really have to make a larger effort and get on here a little more.  I’m sure most of you guys have already moved on and found a replacement for “Ana Talks Books.”  So here I am.  This time I’m going to, instead of telling you about books, I’m going to share some of the best articles I came across in the past few weeks.  I hope you don’t mind and you can hang tight until I get myself untangled from this crazy busy life and get back to serious book business.  So here we go!

Most of us have day gigs, you know that place we go to every morning and if it weren’t for the paycheck some of us would not return the next day.  I will admit that I do enjoy what I do, so I’m not in that category, but I am normal, after all, and as any normal human being sometimes the thought of making the trip to the office makes me cringe.  I am absolutely not into office childish games and sometimes that how it feels.  Well, I found this article to which I’m sure most of you can relate.  Popularity at Work Still Matters.  Let me know what you think.  Doesn’t it hit on all the points?

Beloved Nutella changes its recipe!  WHAT???? We are all going to miss the comforting feel of sitting on the couch, after a very complicated adulating day and enjoying a jar of Nutella, savoring that familiar homey feeling…… ok, maybe that’s just me.  So, yes, I’m a bit charged up about this.

“What’s your current salary?” Has been banned from interviews in New York.  How do you feel about that?  Well, as an employee and a woman I feel really good about this.  No more trying to figure out if I’m selling myself short.  Now I can, instead of saying how much I make, I can actually tell them how much I’m worth.  Isn’t that much better?

There were others but true to form I forgot to save them.  I really need to get with it!!!! Let’s start small and grow from here.

I do hope you are all having a great day and have an awesome weekend.  I’ll try to not go silent for this long again.

See ya!
