Progress report numero..trois

  • Ola dolls,

    This is a blog supposed to be chronicling my climb to being the fiercest real life IT barbie ever with random bits on the side but lately I have just been writing a lot of random stuff and nothing IT related or even career related. So I felt I owed you dolls an update on what I have been up to career- wise.

    I still have not got the red hat certificate I promised I would have by this time. What I do have is a new job. I am now a Network management Engineer with the outsourcing giant WIPRO and I have people reporting to me now. Baby steps to my destination as the Africa manager for Google (If there's any recruiter from google..please please please..I die to work for your company). I did not have a chance to much in my role because I went for my maternity leave shortly after I got it but not before I helped set up a centralized service desk for 2 countries (Yes, am cool like that!)

    I go back to work in 3 weeks and I have big plans to make it work. I am going to put my heart and soul into it as I cannot do anything school related at the moment cause have another job as a baby mama and I have do that better than well.Like Beyonce says strong enough to bear the children and get back to business. All the while wearing heels. I AM A GIRL WHO RUNS THE WORLD.

    Enjoy the rest of the week dolls.

A cup full of attitude from a midwife.

Ola dolls, Had to do a hospital run for baby this morning and it brought back all the horrors I have had to endure in the name of health care. The customer service in this country sucks but when it comes to the healthcare industry, it goes a step further into darker murkier waters. Right from when I took my pregnancy test, I have been through a huge amount of prejudice and judgement simply for being unwed. It is no wonder to me anymore that so many girls opt out and abort. Our society looks down on having children out of wedlock but I feel that our healthcare proffessionals who are meant to preserve life should not carry this attitude. More on this later and that midwife...she almost threw me out of the labour ward for refusing a vaginal exam and insisting on having C-section. Crazy, right?!

Introducing baby...

Ola dolls, Been a long time. I kept saying I would blog again but kept pushing it forward but now am back and for good this time. I promise to honour and be faithful to this blog as I journey forth into life. As the title says this post is about baby(still wrapping my head around it). She makes 2 months this tuesday. I am truly,madly,deeply in love. That is all I can say. xoxo
