Double Career|Wearing Two Hats

I keep seeing this question floating around, so I got a little inspired: Can a woman be a Family & Career woman? Many of times both men and women believe it is not possible without one or the other suffering, and for others it is seamless [ or fake it to be seamless lol]. Why should this be? Of course Parenthood in general can be pretty difficult, but is being a woman with kids any more difficult? Should she not have help? And being that my Nigerian behind has to think this through, would my career have to take a back seat to me being a baby making machine [gives a major side], I HAVE QUESTIONS and I NEED ANSWERS!!


I need to gauge how hard this may or may not be. I mean, motherhood is hard and all, I really do not want to give up my career, but I do live in this United States of ‘Murica and their maternity policies and child care are straight up basura. Furthermore, families usually have to be two income in order to make it [I have a brunch problem, forget shopping] comfortably, so my behind has to really work anyway! WHO WILL WATCH THESE CHIRREN! AGAIN:


So what do you think? Can family and career co-exist, or would one need to take a back seat? Take a poll, it is anonymous… I promise!

Forum is up for discussion, because I do want a male perspective as well. You know how it goes.

Shake Shack vs In n Out



Ok, so everyone knows that I am from LA and a bonafide In n Out Burger lover (i mean… as soon as I land at home… I go straight to the place before ANYTHING). So when I heard all the hype about shake shack (I am a transplant living in DC) and how it will rival In n Out Burger in California, I got hella salty…. like reaalllyyyy salty. So, I decided I might as well go to Shake Shack with my friends (also coworkers to make sure my bias was in check) and see what all the hype was…. and it was just THAT… HYPE! Let me explain…


There was no secret menu, nothing extra, just chicken, burger, or veggie. The fries were just regular ol crinkle fries with the option for cheese sauce and bacon…. dassit! They have concretes (picture a mcflurry, but BETTER), sundaes, fresh lemonades (that I did not fancy), wines and beers… dassit!!!! The burger had some kind of smoked pepper added to it, but again nothing too major. I was really thinking “Did I miss something?  This is the hype?!”. That is where my coworker/friends came in that have not experienced In n Out Burger, and they too were not impressed (phew!). I can say that the service was impeccable and the set up was cute… but Shake Shack should not even be compared to my beloved- In n Out Burger… Thank you.

So please let me know… how was your Shake Shack experience and do you agree that it is better than In n Out? Let me know what I am possibly missing overall!

Slight Post Scriptum,

Will have the top ten burger joints in DC within a week!
