Communities aren't battlefields, they're commons. The only ones we have left.

Anyone here who researches or works with ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy/training)? I'd love to connect and learn more about the work you do.

@Aditi My usual strategies (although sometimes I don't bother): Snacks and/or a good red wine. A favorite TV show streaming or on DVD in the background. Usually dividing things into smaller segments so I can finish within a week or two while also doing work stuff I enjoy.

Sitting in my office and grading exams. What do you do to make it easier? My stack of exams is making me want to stop and take a nap!

Hello Academic Tooters (#AcaTooters), as promised, this is my first thread for desi academics (thought not limited to) who want to connect with each other in this new space, and create a virtual support system. Please introduce yourself under here with your name, field, area of research, geographical location (optional). Once we have the thread going, I'll create a list.
Will be also holding future threads on conference, publishing, writing, and other #AcaWoes you can think of.
Boost and tag!

imagine thinking people who are cutesy and kind and gentle are "naive" and not like, freakishly powerful for existing in this world for more than 6 years and not becoming cynical and miserable
