It’s true! If I didn’t have a work buddy to consistently eye roll with and spill the tea on all things ever, then how could I possibly make it through the hours?! Honeeyyyy, we’re slaying trolls together everyday, whether it’s enduring meetings that could be emails or office coffee that tastes like tar. In the end, colleagues become friends we can’t live without. Plus, who else would I vent to in the middle of Panera on a Tuesday?

I don’t know about you, but I find myself shutting and locking myself into wardrobes quite often these days. Want to avoid your boss? Lock yourself in a wardrobe. Need to cry? Lock yourself into a wardrobe. Have a hidden singing talent? Voila! A wardrobe is a perfect place to belt out Barbra Streisand.

If you consider a Rolling Stones t-shirt paired with a blazer and leggings (because comfort is important) that look like dress pants, to be “business casual,” then you’ve hired the perfect girl! It’s not exactly professional but let’s call it charm? Also, it’s not my fault I can’t hide the fact that I’m hungry and tired. Mostly, I’m just hungry.

“This… ‘stuff’? I see, you think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select out, oh I don’t know, that lumpy blue sweater, for instance, because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don’t know is that that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise, it’s not lapis, it’s actually cerulean. You’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves St Laurent, wasn’t it, who showed cerulean military jackets? …And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of 8 different designers. Then it filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic casual corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and so it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you’re wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room. From a pile of stuff.”
