"Hi Lola! I am in  the EXACT same situation as you. I have passed every section except E. I had a good 4 years left to get this one section taken care of, so when i found out i was pregnant, i figured i would just take the next year off and…"

BZ Girl replied to Jason T. Radice's discussion '"Can a playground be too safe?" - Interesting NY Times article'
"Great article. This is one of my chief frustrations when i am designing children's play spaces...all of the over-sanitized, super-safetyfied 'rules' have completely eliminated all the risk and wonder and excitement that should be in a…"

"I have a friend who is in this very situation you just described. He has passed all sections except section D, which i believe he has taken 3 times now. 'Wow', you might be saying 'this guy sure doesn't know construction very…"

BZ Girl replied to Craig Anthony's discussion 'Has Land8 helped you cope?'
"Thanks Henry! This was very helpful. I found that our state dept. of labor has a payday law that expressly prohibits witholding wages from a paycheck, unless it's court-ordered (like child support), state or federally required (like taxes), or…"

BZ Girl replied to Craig Anthony's discussion 'Has Land8 helped you cope?'
"Thank you all for your encouragement...it's needed! Despite their verbal agreement to my offer to be voluntarily laid off, apparently my former employer is now changing their tune and saying that i resigned. They gave me a formal letter with my…"

BZ Girl replied to Craig Anthony's discussion 'Has Land8 helped you cope?'
"Yeah, I think it's definitely been very helpful. Even when you are working in an office with other people, sometimes you can still feel disconnected and completely alone despite being surrounded by coworkers. Logging on to Land8 and hearing…"

"VERY interesting topic !  (And a hot one, apparently, too).   I definitely agree with your sentiments BZ. I too am a (relatively) young LA, working in the south, and have long experienced discrimination, both outside the office in the…"

"Well, I guess YOU just gave the same advice, but in a much more eloquent way. You’re the type of woman I’ve been describing all along. Maybe I’m just too heavy handed and it doesn’t come across the same way.   If…"

Yona R. Owens replied to BZ Girl's discussion 'Women working in a male-dominated industry'
"Craig, I meant the suggestion to read some history to the group as a whole. Sometimes learning that there have been others before is an inspiration. I can't speak for Sally Schauman but she can speak for herself a bit. I interviewed her in…"

Craig Anthony replied to BZ Girl's discussion 'Women working in a male-dominated industry'
"Thanks I’m sure they’re both good reads, but I don’t need a history lesson to know that women like Sally didn’t get where they are today by being intimidated by a room full of hairy-backs in winged tipped shoes. I’ll…"

BZ Girl, you have stirred up a lively debate about your unfortunate employment situation...I can add only one other piece of friendly advice to remember....In my long career I have observed one universal truth that every situation in life is TEMPORARY!!! so, hang in there, I promise you that your situation WILL change. I know it's no fun at the moment but be sure it will change.....
