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!

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.

Survey Says….

So I am a first gen kid. Meaning my parents are immigrants and decided to settle down and have my Igbotic arse in LA. Now many say that what I am may be up for debate, but I identify as a N I G E R I A N. Yes, and I do go through the fight of not being accepted by either side [ie I am seen as a “different” black to many here stateside and to Nigerians, I am not “Nigerian enough”], but whatevs I know who I am and where I come from [like.. down to the village… try me nau]. However, throughout my cultural fluidity of being a Nigerian born on Angeleno soil, I do know one thing for sure… WE LOVE FOOD! Jesu, we dont play o when it comes to chowing down. From different soups, heavy ass “snacks” or appetizers like isi ewu, nkowbi, etc to other dishes that can put Andre the Giant to sleep in one take. So I decided to take a small poll of “What is your preference?” What type starch do you prefer to eat [yes, I am judging you lol]. Here we go!

1.EbaEba

2.iyanIyan

3.amalaAmala

4.semovitaSemovita

5.akpuAkpu

6.indifference you do not even care.. starch is starch and you are hungry.

Comment and let me know!

Post Scriptum: You do not have to be Nigerian to take the survey, if you have tried it, or have something similar, comment too!

Oya… Ready… Set… EAT… i mean… GO!
