It's "keeping up with the literature in my area of specialization" time!

Also known as "Did I get scooped? Oh god I think I got scooped fuck fuck wait it's something different but the title is close enough to be confusing I need to lie down fuck"

It is very important to say 'I don't know' and to practice not knowing. Academia demands that we be experts, and if we stumble at all then we are punished for it. We are not allowed to have partial knowledge or ongoing knowledge.
But that's toxic. It's okay and good to not know things - even things in your own field.
The beauty of it all is that we will never fully know anything. We can only ever learn more.
