if you would like me to be able to read urgent things, please CW it so that not only can i read it, i can also responsibly boost it, and like, KEEP reading it if i have to stop
"i'm not CWing this because it's important to actually read it" translates to "i'm not CWing because any time this pops up anywhere in your life, nomatter how much you've read or done about it elsewhere, you should be forced to read it"
do u really think the people who don't open "urgent, USpol" are willing to act?

I woke this morning with a strong drive to head to school and get some work done.
It's Saturday, my last day was yesterday, and I had, in fact, slept in for two hours.
But I am motivated to continue my curriculum writing, so there's that.

Summer Vacation Show more
For one of my first acts of Summer Vacation I took a nap and woke up the very minute I wanted to without using an alarm clock to time it.
Then I stayed in bed for another minute because it's Summer Vacation and I could.

Many teachers have already left for the summer. Others are following the principal around waiting for their chance to do final checkout.
I'm sticking around a bit longer, like someone who waits until after rush hour to commute home. It has the same benefits and drawbacks.
The boards are blank. old books are stacked on the stage for pickup.
There are few places with people that are lonelier than a school without students.
I feel it today.

The school feels empty and quiet.
Some teachers are at off-site Professional Developments, but most are here, slowly packing up their rooms.
My lab is a mess, but it's an organized one. Computers are covered. Chairs are stacked.
I have two tables filled with things to be sorted later.
I don't wanna.
However, it needs to be done.

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
