#BlackWomenAtWork uncovers the everyday struggles black women face at work

Black women are fed up with the way they are treated in the workplace so they are sharing their experiences on Twitter.

Activist Brittany Packnett kicked off the hashtag #BlackWomenAtWork in response to the disrespectful ways in which two prominent black women were treated by public figures throughout the day. 

As a way to help address these issues, Packnett encouraged black women online to share some of their real-life experiences at work.  

“I wanted the hashtag to make the invisible visible, to challenge non-black people to stand with black women not just when this happens on television, but in the cube right next to them,” she said. “I’m also glad stories of triumph and achievement got shared through the hashtag as well ― black women are more than just our woes, we are triumphant.”

Today felt like a dream

I still can’t believe that I was a part of the movie franchise that changed my life.

I was in the same room as Anna Kendrick, who waved at me twice. I met Chrissie Fit and gave her a birthday card, which she posted on Snapchat, and she hugged me. Rebel Wilson basically did an entire stand up comedy routine to entertain us between takes. She’s so funny, and she’s super sweet. Anna Camp and Brittany Snow looked like angels. Ester Dean is perfect. Kelley, Shelley, Hana, and Hailee kept making everyone smile throughout the day. All of these women were right in front of me, singing and performing. It was absolutely amazing.

They all care about each other, and it shows. Seeing the bond they share was my favorite part.

I made a lot of new friends today, too. This fandom is amazing.

Today was the best.

“If you had $86,400 in your account and someone stole $10 from you, would you be upset and throw the remaining amount $86,390 away at the person who took your $10?

Of course not! The same way we have 86,400 seconds each day.

Don’t let someone’s negative 10 seconds ruin the remaining 86,390 seconds of your day.”

This is how I will be living the rest of my life!!!

Hi I’m Brittany! Just looking for others to reconnect with during these tough post-grad times. I enjoy lots of netflix shows. Some of my favorites include The Office, Parks and Recreation, and Arrested Development. I’m always in intrigue to read more books (mostly fictional). I’d also love to get to know other people’s music and what helps them get through the day.

Honestly, just looking for someone to share thoughts with helping each other out with any life difficulties. I’m always available to listen

“You can’t stay here.  Get out.”

“What?” you sat up, covering yourself with Kara’s sheets, and frowned in confusion.  The blonde had disappeared to take a shower after the events that had followed her taking you back to her apartment and you had nearly drifted off to sleep while she was gone.

“You can’t stay here,” Kara repeated.

“What the hell?”

“I’m sorry, but we shouldn’t have done this.  It was a mistake.”

The Kryptonian didn’t look in your direction as she collected your clothes from the floor and tossed them onto the bed.  With a disgusted sigh, you stood up and dressed.

“You know what, Kara?  I hope you finally get over yourself enough to stop pushing everyone away.  Your little secret isn’t that hard to figure out and it never mattered to me.  What mattered was that you lied to me every day about it and then acted like I was the dishonest one when I told you that nothing happened between Brittany and I.”

“Y-you knew?” Kara sputtered as you pulled on your sneakers.  Instead of granting her an explanation, you stood up and took your keys from her nightstand.

“Have a great life.”

I’m sitting at home
in my mermaid tail blanket
with a bowl of mac and cheese
Grey’s Anatomy on the Netflix
and a cider in my belly. 

And I am so freaking happy.

Which leads me to the post I promised about my presence (or lack thereof) here on the tumblrs.

The wedding

It had been a long time since we dated and what felt like longer still since we had an actual conversation that included more than just pleasantries. I knew that he had gotten engaged, to some random girl he met in New York, not a dancer, not a preformer, a lawyer actually and a very sweet girl. I was half shocked when I got the wedding invitation in the mail, I didn’t know why he would invite me, probably because it would be wierd if he hadn’t, or because I’m amazingly close with his brother and sister in law, as is another ex girlfriend he also invited. A funny world, a funny small world it is that we all live in.

Sharna POV
I stepped out of the car cautiously, I half expected someone to run up to me saying that I wasn’t invited after all, that why on earth could I expect a wedding invitation from him of all people, that this was all a joke and I should just leave now. But that didn’t happen. It didn’t happen throughout the entire ceremony, although beforehand I was assaulted by my wonderful best friend Peta but her and Maks had matters to attend to being the family of the groom and couldn’t chat for long. It didn’t happen as they walked out of the church, holding hands, smitten looks. It didn’t happen as I showed up at the reception and ate and made small talk with some ex cast mates and friends of the bride.

So here I find myself, sitting alone at my table, not finding the courage to get up and dance or really do much of anything. When I see someone pull over a chair and sit next to me.

“Hey Shar.” I turn and look at, possibly the only other person who understands me in this moment. 

“Hey Jen, longtime no see” She looks away slightly embarrassed.

“Yeah sorry about that it’s just with everything I…” she trailed off. I understood what she meant though, her and Val had been off and on for several years before he started to date me and I always knew he broke her heart.

“I understand” she flashed me a quick smile.

“It’s wierd being here.” She said looking around the venue. “I always kind of assumed it was going to be one of us.” I looked at her getting why she has come over here.

“Me too, I just always thought he was going to get his life together and ask one of us, it didn’t have to be me, but to not even marry a dancer, she just seems so foreign” she nodded.

“I’m sure you’ve talked to Peta too but she says she’s really nice when you get to know her.” I had forgotten that Jenna and Peta were so close, once I stared dating Val I wasn’t as close to her anymore. I forgot Peta wasn’t the same way.  But Peta hadn’t spoken to me about Val’s new wife and I don’t know exactly if that meant anything, I suppose I never asked either.

“It hurts a little, not badly, not as much as it would’ve a year ago but it stings. I don’t know if I’ll ever completely stop feeling at least something for him”

“He’s wierd like that, he draws you in and makes you feel like you’re all that matter and it’s all so dramatic in the moment and when it ends it’s like a piece of you has been ripped away.” She spoke with the words I couldn’t form, as if she was reading my thoughts.

“I hope they are happy together, no matter what happened between us I want him to be happy.” She smiled and raised her glass.

“I’ll cheers to that!” We clinked our glasses and smiled. “I suppose that’s why he invited us, it’s such a big step in your life and he was such a big part of my life, it would feel wierd if he just wasn’t there” I nodded softly.

The rest of the night passed slowly, I know that Jenna left early, but I couldn’t bear to follow, who leaves a wedding early?

~~~

I thought about that night in passing moments over the next years, when I felt the worst or most alone. Until three years later, I hadn’t spoken to most of the people from the show in almost five years, save for an occasional phone call from Peta every month or so. It stung a bit to no longer talk to those I was so close to, but I had new friends and I loved them. But it made a certain phone call much stranger.

One day around twelve in the afternoon I revived a call from and unknown number I vauguely recognized. It was Jenna.

“Hey Sharna it’s Jenna I had a question for you and I know we haven’t spoken since well. Since Val’s wedding but it’s sort of about that and only you can answer it.” She was calm and composed but I could hear a tone of panic in her voice.

“Hey Jen,” I said quite taken aback, she was not who I expected, “ what do you need?”

“I’m getting married today,” this conversation was getting stranger by the minute. “to Artem, I love him and he is so so wonderful, Lindsay is maid of honor, Peta, Brittany and both my sisters are my bridesmaids, I’m so happy Sharna, so happy” I didn’t quite understand why she was calling me.

“I’m happy for you”

“But keep questioning myself, Sharna I have been in love with Val for most of my adult life, he was my first true love, but I love Artem more than I have ever loved Val.” I was throughly confused at this point. “ he called me you know?”

“What? Who called you when?”

“Val, on the day he got married, he called me and asked about, well you, and me but he was talking about how much he had hurt the two of us, and that he was so sorry for everything and he told me that a small part of him would always love us and that if we said it back he would run away with either one of us. He would run from his fiancé and never look back. But I knew it was just wedding nerves, I knew that he loved that girl more than he ever loved us. It hurt but I told him I didn’t love him, it was a lie, and the hardest lie I have ever told but I knew it was right. Sharna I need you to be that person for me. No one else understands like you do. I need you to tell me that Val doesn’t love me, that he isn’t going to come back like before, that he isn’t in love either one of us. Because I love Artem and I want to marry him.”

I was shocked. Completely and utterly flabbergasted. But she was right I knew where she was coming from, Val had a grip on me for too long, so I composed myself and said, finally believeing it myself. “Val isn’t in love with us. Jenna he is not coming back for you. You love Artem. He is a great guy and you are going to be happy with him. Marry the man you love Jenna” It felt so nice to say that. I knew in my heart that I was saying Jenna’s name but it felt like I was talking to myself. If she could move on I knew that I could too.

“Thank you” she wispered and the phone fell silent.

~~~
Two years later I got a letter, inside was a baby announcement for a one “May Anna Chigvintsev”. She was a precious little girl with her mothers eyes and her fathers head, scribbled on the corner of the paper was, written in her mothers scrawl, “thank you, for everything, raise a glass to happiness”. I looked down at the little girls face, and at her bearing my name, and smiled. Before addressiging an envelope cordially inviting Jenna and Artem Chigvintsev to the marriage of Sharna Burgess and James Hinchcliffe

A/n thanks so much for reading. I have had this idea for a while now and I hope I did it justice. I’m a massive valenna stan but you can’t doubt chmergesses chemistry, so I settled for neither of them, oops. Thanks again hope you enjoyed! Xoxo R 💕💕

i need a medic by Gorshenin

AU. Army!Brittana. It’s wrong on so many levels. It’s fraternization, it’s unprofessional, it could cost you your rank, your career, and worse-hers; but you can’t stay away. You need her and it has nothing to do with the palpitations in your chest.

agendas unspoken by K311yS

She hasn’t let go of your hand yet and you don’t pull away. You do smile though, widely, because there’s just something about her that’s so pleasing to you. You don’t want to let go of her hand, you want to hold on and see where it leads you. “Nice to meet you, Santana Lopez,” you finally reply, and you honestly mean it.

if only you could see what i see by FrogsRcool

I wanted to follow her. So bad. She was the most interesting person I’d ever seen in my entire life and I didn’t even know why. Brittana.

clockwork by Gorshenin

hate that i love you by peach83

It seemed so simple. In return for her ancestral house sold by her scheming friends, Heather agreed to fake-marry Hollywood playgirl Naya Rivera and stay married for a year to tone down the actress’ notoriety. Until real feelings got involved.

Today, I met the love of my life.

It began on August 15th, 2016 - that is, the day my life would be changed forever. She was instantly amazing to talk to, and when she send me the first selfie I’d see of her, I was instantly taken aback: she was gorgeous. 

Fast forward to November, and we were taking what was an online friendship to the next level. I was turning 18 on the 9th, and on the 11th, she and I became official girlfriends. :)

Skyping, texting, and phone calls every day for nearly 7 months, until finally I come to her home town for college orientation. I see her text, saying that she’s here. I walk out and see her trashed car (Poor Phoebe), and know it’s her. Walking up, she gets out, and my heart drops. With a simple hey, hug, and then my first kiss, I knew that @thisgingerlovesbechloe was the love of my life. 

Brittany, there is no one I’d rather be with. No one. I love you so so much!
