Sci-Hub turns 10 on 2021-04-16, speaking as a French student I'd love it if we turned our universities upside down to celebrate

I did no writing last night even though I worked through a particularly important piece of reading. I feel like I'm judging myself too harshly because I didn't type up my handwritten notes. :BlobCatGooglyShrug:

The other week my 2020 paper which I wrote in 2018 and presented in 2019 came out.

Job hunting during a pandemic is even worse.

Pedagogy opinions; Kinda facetious 

Every philosophy class' syllabus should have a table for the readings with the following headings:

| Author | Reading | Author was a literal Nazi (y/n) |

Just so that students don't get emotionally invested in someone's work and then find out later

I've been anxious, so I've turned to Ursula K. Le Guin, because she's among the wisest.

The Hymn to Time is a #poem I think I've translated in the margins somewhere. Maybe I'll get around to digging up the book in this room.
