I had a job interview yesterday for an Assistant Cook position, and this is what I wore. Of course I combed my hair more modestly and hid my septum piercing, so that my appearance wouldn't unjustly colour their opinion of me.

It's sad that something like a hair cut or a facial piercing can make or break an interview but that's still the world we live in. It makes me grateful to be the blonde, cisgendered white woman I am, which makes me extremely privileged compared to most. It doesn't make me better, it just makes me lucky, and I try to be aware of that. Cheers...
