Baby-Making & Work

I turned 31 in March, which seems to be the precise age people's vernacular shifts from, "Are you going to have kids? Oh, you should!" to "Are you pregnant yet? Start trying. NOW. You don't want to leave it too late!" Gentle rebuttals that I'm happy child-free and not entirely…

Be Like Seagal

Most of what I know about recruitment, and much of what I know about life, I've learnt from the movies of Steven Seagal. I'm not even joking. For those who don’t know who Seagal is, let me explain. Imagine it’s 1987 and a 6ft4in slightly tubby martial arts instructor with…
