just disliked something so much I looked up the author in order to figure out if I could beat them in a fist fight or not

So far, I am not actually a fan of Jameson's writing style.

on day 3 of researching for a potential project focused on Otoro Katsuhiro's Akira :BlobCatCoffee:

Shocked!!! That my parents care more about my sister going to grad school for physical therapy than they ever did for me going to grad school!!!

Role-playing game studies 

I threw away my notes from my first semester of grad school the other day and it felt great

like I know I look like I'm a complete jerk when I fuck up with forms and guidelines and deadlines and make typos and whatever else that requires a million emails back and forth but like it's so hard to keep track of things and my brain just sucks at it

how do I even learn to be good at bureaucratic interactions like I feel like that's a skill I need

guess who misread something on a thesis-related email and now looks like a huge fucking idiot and jackass because it's me and I want to cry

"Maybe I could try to revise something for publication over the summer?" I say, pretending my past two years of work wasn't just struggling to get by and entirely worthless

having one of those days I'm bitter about the past two years being an almost total wash

"What would I say my biggest weakness is? Well, I almost threw up in public applying for this job, so..."

I have two degrees
of course I have a minimum of two years editing and writing experience why do I have to do this please just make it stop

I hate literally everything about making resumes

Apple's hardware aesthetics have an almost terraforming effect: the sleek MacBook makes the rest of your desk look cluttered and irregular, their stores feel like alien temples you must assimilate into the customs of. I would like technology to feel more like going down to a local co-op hardware store where a lesbian sells you a hammer you will own for 30 years.

@Cyborgneticz My partner has been drinking Soylent for about a year and a half now during workdays and she seems to really like it. The downside is is that it makes you feel like a trendy tech hipster.
