The Joys of being a Female Engineer....

Being one of the 3 female engineers in a team of 40 people has always been interesting....for various reasons.....and here's one of those reasons!

This is a conversation between me and one of my female colleagues at work!

Background: We have a team offsite tomorrow where we are all renting a party boat and heading out to the lake! FUN!!!!!!


Colleague: Are you planning on swimming tomorrow? I don't really want to be the only chick in a bathing suit ;) I have a 2-piece that's not a string bikini that I was planning on wearing. Can't be baring it all for my coworkers. LOL

ME: Yeah - I'll swim….prob sticking to a 1-piece though! :)

Colleague: Sounds like a plan :)

ME: The funny thing is we're gonna see guys of all shapes and sizes baring it all…and not worrying one bit!!....:D

Colleague: Ha ha good point! The 2-piece I have is a halter top with full coverage bottoms. I'm sure it'll be ok. If I have to look at some of these guys' hairy bellies, they can look at mine. Ha ha!

ME: hahahahha....WELL PUT!!!!


My crisis at work is FINALLY over and I had a fabulously chilled out weekend recuperating.....watched THREE movies in the theatre....ran 10 miles around Town Lake....went Kayaking with Areille...ate some good food... made dinner for friends and watched like 6 episodes of That 70s Show with them!!....

Aaah....Life is Good! :D

The guys are probably only going to care if they want to impress anyone in the group. Why should you be so self-conscious unless you care about the others' opinions of yourself?
