    I spent a good part of yesterday getting caught up with Veep. That show is getting better and better. I think I'm still 2 or 3 episodes behind with Girls but I'm really surprised to hear that Adam is more likable now.

    Total girl moment:

    Got a message last night from an acquaintance I've known for years saying that he might be in the area come October. He's a hot firefighter.

    Ive always liked Adam, glad they gave us more insight on him. I'm looking forward to seeing more of him. Love the show. My boyfriend and I enjoy watching it together.

    Both. Actually, he'll be visiting his sister, and decided to throw me in the itinerary. I've known this guy for probably around 10 years.
    However, if he tried to woo me, I probably wouldn't stop him.
    I sure hope he doesn't find out that I posted this pic of him.

    My boyfriend really likes watching and he likes teasing me saying he is going to act like Adam in bed... just to see me squirm. Its funny because when I first saw the previews for the show, I was sold. I would ask if he was gonna watch it with me and he would say " Uh, I think you are on your own with that" then out of now where he sent me text saying he wants to watch it with me. He loves the fact that not all the girls/guys are perfect in every way. Its just a fun show.

    That's cute. My boyfriend watches other girly shows with me and I think eventually if I keep watching Girls he'll get into it by default. Did you know that there's a backlash because all of the lead characters are white? People are saying that show should represent NY's culture of educated 20-somethings in a more diverse way.

    Lena Dunham is very intelligent and amazing. I feel like most EVERYTHING gets racial backlash.. such as The Hunger Games... and many other things. People love to bitch and will bitch about anything. If someone is writing a Biography are you gonna get mad cause that person didn't have any black/hispanic/asian/mixed friends. After awhile it just seems absurd.

    So yesterday I was told that I am not approachable at work. I am having a hard time with this, because I think I am REALLY helpful and knowledgeable in my position. I am having a hard time figuring out how to change this perception, if it is in fact true. I know you guys don't know me really, so I guess I am just venting... but it kept me up all night thinking about how I come across to people. I am kinda bummed out today.

    I used to get that. Found out it was because I look young, and people assumed that I didn't have much experience. It was hard to "win the hearts" of fellow employees, and took a lot of time. I think the best move I made was just initiating small conversations with coworkers so they would get to know me better and feel more comfortable around me.

    Find time to hit one of the great rooftop pools, they have swim up bars, I have been to the one at the flamingo which was cool, but I know there are much better ones. Ceasers even has a blackjack table in the pool if that is your thing. I am not as familiar with clubs there.

    Yeah that was what I thought it was, but I have been here about 2 years now. Another comment that she made was "I don't look the part". I am within the employee handbook dress code every single day, but I don't wear makeup to work and she thinks that hurts me. I am having a tough time "giving in" by wearing make up too. I don't think that is fair whatsoever. I know it seems petty, but I did make up for 2 years, the last thing I want to do is wear it every day.

    Thank you for that, Robin. Very interesting... I am still struggling with it, do I want to "give in" and wear make up so that people view me differently, or do I want to be stubborn and make a point (even if only to myself). Is this something that most girls go through?

    I wanna bitch about those DUI commercials where every driver is a white mid 20's to middle aged man. Or the alarm company commercials where the guy breaking into the house is ALWAYS white.

    That's weird. I've almost never worn makeup to work and never have issues with the way people treat me or perceive me.

    I will say that when I don't dress like a teenage boy they do view me differently though. NOT my coworkers, but people I encounter on my way to work or out and about near work. I've started trying to wear dress like a "business woman" when I'm not in SF...

    And maybe that is something that I need to reflect on. I usually wear slacks or dressy jeans with a blouse. Maybe I should dress up more. I am just really sad about all of this. I know it seems petty, but it's the first time I have encountered something like this.

    Now, when I start at a new job, I usually wear light make up and dress in a button down and nice slacks. Once the employees get to know me and know what I'm capable of, I slowly start to cut back on that. At my last job, by the end of my employment, I was walking in with jeans and tshirts pretty much every day. No makeup. I wouldn't even blowdry my hair.

    Unfortunately, in the business world, the way a person looks can go a long way. There's been studies on "Lookism" and how better looking people usually make it further up the career ladder.

    Yeah, you are most likely correct. I guess I will just have to give in (which I know I am making it sound worse than it is). It just really got me down. Thank you guys for your input, I appreciate it a lot.

    My girlfriend was involved in a 5-day bachelorette party last year. Her biggest bit of discovery was finding good package deals. They went to Thunder Down Under and got a package that ended up including dinner, drinks, a limo, and vip access to whatever club was in that hotel for something like $130/person or something. they got a similar package with a cirque du soleil show. They also rented a villa or whatever they're called at the MGM pool for a day or too and she said it was awesome having a homebase to just lounge about all day.

    Enluv, I'm sorry! It sucks to have someone tell you that you're unapproachable or need to change, because a workplace shouldn't work that way. However, it's like Robin said, the way you present yourself at work can make a big difference in your career.
