Sacrifice mathematics on an alter of the old gods

I am being reminded just how little I actually miss mathematics

What are you gonna do? Give me a detention, call my parents, tell the person with a background in formal languages and proof theory that you're worried about my ability to pass this axiomatic set theory course?

I think this is a new record lower limit for me on "time before I remember stuffy professor man has no power over me and just stop showing up to lectures out of respect for myself"

I hate set theory but also I like that 1. I understand it quite well 2. I have also specialised in the humanities subjects considered Less Important than mathematics that have many tools of important critique 3. I am in a position where I can articulate things that can knock mathematics off it's undeserved pedestal*

*No pedestals for anything or anyone 2k19

Food mention, set theory

Hi. Don't say "women and enbies" if you only mean enbies with vulvas.

Thanks,

My favourite activity is going into the academic year all wide-eyed and enthusiastic and then being tripped up by the university or the students

fun reminder: not every nonbinary person is mystically androgynous or brightly genderqueer. just bc someone passes for cis doesn't mean they are

And 12 hours of commuting a week for 3 hours of lecture 🙃

I continue to be mad about this 3-hour lecture being spread over 3 days.

Looking for connections who know a thing or two (or even more than two things) about doing an MA in Archiving.

If this is you, can I ask you a few questions?

If this is not you, please could you signal boost?

Oh this module has 3 different 1-hour lecture slots on 3 different days, must be for different groups.
...
No, it's just I have 3 lectures a week on 3 different days. And I have a 2 hour commute to campus.
...
Fuck.

neoliberalism, dystopia

like it's the best place ive ever been but that's a testament to how shitty my life was in grade school, not how good uni is (it's awful)

Loki :NonbinaryFlag: boosted

university is actually awful and toxic and no one should be pressured to go

I'm remembering my old type theory research and getting super sad I can't publish it because I will somehow get blood on my hands if I do

Anyway set theory is a less interesting type theory but both are machines of war
