    LGBTQ+ 6 -- It's a Rainbow of Flavors

    A couple of things. 1) please do not use "transgendered" or "cisgendered". The correct terms are "transgender" and "cisgender" because these are things that people are, not things that happened to them. 2) I've never seen the term "non-cisgender" used by people in the community, although I suppose it's not the worst thing. I'd avoid it, though, and say "transgender or non-binary individuals." Also note that "nb" as shorthand for "non-binary" should be avoided, because that term is already in use in the Black community to mean "non-Black." 3) "person assigned X at birth" is generally considered acceptable. 4) I'd steer clear of using someone's anatomy as a descriptor. It's really invasive and is nobody's business. I need to run to a meeting but I will try to come up with an alternative for you. Thank you for asking these questions! I really appreciate that you're trying to get things correct and want to be inclusive in your language.

    Please report back! I love winter ducks. I am betting you have some Hooded Mergansers, Buffleheads, maybe some Gadwall and Wood Duck?

    Thank you for the advice!! This is super-helpful and was where I was thinking of going with mine. I like the focus on results -- that's something I've noticed has been missing on the resumes that have come across my desk in the last year or so, even for higher-level positions.

    If I run across any myself, I'll drop a link here too.

    Thank you! and yeah, looking for format ideas beyond the traditional single-column reverse-chronology approach.

    Do you have any contact with your boss's boss?

    Has anyone seen a really great resume lately? I'm revamping mine and I'm looking for different ideas on how to present the information. FWIW, I'm a highly skilled, senior-level creative/technical with a solid work history, and if/when I decide to jump ship, I'll be applying for either a similar gig elsewhere, or looking to move into a managerial role within a creative/technical field.

    Speaking of Colourpop -- the Jelly Much jelly eyeshadows are pretty rad.

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    Red-tailed Hawks are generally not used for pest control -- the bird you saw was just your average urban raptor who does not give a damn about the humans in its midst. But glad you got to experience some proper American birdlife!

    With the "live closer" option, is there a way to split the distance, or live outside of town, to at least shave 30 minutes off the commute? FWIW, my commute is 45 minutes, and Mr. X has a 55-minute commute. This is all within New York City, mind.

    That is fukken siiiick. I am so proud of the both of you. Congratulations!!! Legit, I was showing my friend videos of you and R last weekend, trying to convince her to start bodybuilding. (she's into weightlifting, but not for competition).
