I, for one, never get sources or information given to me in a dream, and I think my subconscious needs to get on that shit.

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

I wanted to go for a run but instead I am convalescing from stress

I think it would be cool if universities had more resources in place to teach students about recycling refunds local to the area they are living in, as well as informing them of where their waste streams go. E.g. where does our waste go for composting? how much gets composted? what is it used for? where does our waste go to be incinerated? what are the consequences of that for the neighborhood?

:boost_ok:​ Can anyone recommend a nonprofit, or a company doing things that are beneficial for society, who's hiring software engineers in europe?

Officially giving my students Cajun French nicknames and it's very entertaining

I'm not angry about things I didn't learn in high school
I'm mad that because of low pay some of the best teachers I've had left education

There are many reasons to stay in a career, but guilt is not one of them

If the system itself doesn't make your work sustainable, it is very fair to leave even if you love it

I feel like care industries are hard to leave because of the moral pressure of 'you're doing good things'

But sometimes
That's not enough

Alright so
I write a lot, and I'd like to get paid for writing

any idea of how to do that?

I have kept a journal through my entire graduate school process
the idea being - I'll have something to look back on and I appreciate it for entries like

'wrong meds for 5 days. I feel like shit.'

'ugh.'

'I've never been more distraught' I think I had to rewrite a chapter for the 4th time

it's making me laugh

I have my dissertation defense talk trimmed to 5 minutes.
I have practiced it on 1 person.
