Parasocial relationships are a lot.
Recently people have started expecting a lot from me, a lot more than I can give.
I love sharing. I love bonding with people. I love teaching. But I am a person with an illness that makes me seize if I get too stressed. And I'm getting stressed.
I can't handle the intrusions into my personal life or heightened expectations. I entertain a lot of that On Here because I'm worried about doxxing. I want to connect, but I also want boundaries.
So here's a bit 1/

I love that journaling started with Puritans being like 'I need to record my failings'
which makes my current journal a historical reenactment

I encourage y'all to look at the laws being passed in session - if only because some have been funny.

We're getting a few because of insurance fraud to which I say - bless everyone who scammed the government so much so that it now had to pass a law on it.

Looking at Maryland's politicians acting up worse than Louisiana's.
Alright.

My submission to Philomathes finally got published! Check it out in vol. 5.1. I neglected within the paper to thank Prof. Steve Reece for his guidance and Prof. Anne Groton for talking me into adding an ancient studies major the first day of my penultimate semester of undergrad so I could do this research at all. apsu.edu/philomathes/Issues.ph

Baltimore, food 

So I talked to a fellow Cajun about Baltimore.
He told me that when he visited he had to bring some tony's and hot sauce with him to crab boils because no one used spices.

I'm kinda worried.

advice if you're job searching in Louisiana 

if someone invites you for coffee after an interview - take it.
if you don't, you won't get the job.

if you get invited for coffee, they are inviting you to visit and you've unofficially joined the group. if you say no, you've rejected the group and thus no job for you.

I really miss laying down in a flatbed of a truck while it speeds around the country at night cause it's too hot inside to think.

Just a day being unprofessional 

I saw this well regarded professor in my dept at the cafe.
I, of course, updated them about all of the things and was so amazed when they were happy for my job.
They were like, "Oh wow it sounds so ideal!" And I don't know how to communicate with well regarded people so I talked too much and embarrassed myself

eyyyyy

Religion, pers 

July 4 is the first day I get to attend new Church.
I've never attended a Jesuit church!

Ah yes two weeks and no trash pickup.
A joy.
I love the smell of garbage in the Louisiana heat.

Academic cognitive dissonance - the consistent hope that "this time my rough draft will be a final draft!" despite knowing it will require at least 5 rounds of revision before suitable to go anywhere
