This one is a little all over the place as it's dealing with something I'm still working out myself. Being a woman. And being a woman in what has been a male-dominated industry. Yep I've done alot of crazy-a**-sh** in my life and am seen as independent and adventurous. It hadn't occurred to me how much energy and focus I was having to use to fight against the core beliefs that I couldn't do it and wasn't allowed. And now that I am writing this I am getting a glimpse of the big ole rock I've been pushing uphill when it comes to convincing people that a woman-- particularly a pretty blonde one- can get sh** done!

PS: this is not an us against them rant. Just an acknowledgement of how I am coming to understand a shifting reality. My dude collaborators rock!!!
