git, social science, blog post 

used to be really impressed at really long lit reviews that cite like 50 papers. like how can you write multiple articles a *year* like that??

turns out these people have been citing the same 40 papers in every article, and just keeping up with the latest research and incorporating that as they go along

still impressed, but it doesn't seem impossible now :)

keeping yourself safe, cops

Los Angeles, politics, surveillance 

animal shelter, asking for donations 

@nimirea ones that pushed me to try and apply for things that i thought were way above my class. even the rejections were good practice.

ones who encouraged me to prioritize work that would contribute to my own goals over turning down opportunities in favor of continuing to do their grunt work for them.

@nimirea My first big mentor made me feel like a peer. That was huge for me, and made me approach my discipline in a totally different way. Sometimes we fail individually, but if you get a sense that you are collectively striving towards some ideal, you can also see how things can be worthwhile.

It also taught me that you have to be intellectually generous and admit your limits.
