Being a woman sucks. We can’t dress super cute, we can’t drink, [we can’t run at night,] can’t do any of those things unless we want to be told we were asking for it.
If you think of it, the whole system of public education around the world is a protracted process of university entrance. And the consequence is that many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they’re not, because the thing they were good at at school wasn’t valued, or was actually stigmatized. And I think we can’t afford to go on that way.
MY FAVORITE TA LIKES MY SCARF :> I liked hers too so I’m flattered. I aspire to be her she is the best TA I have ever had in three years of public education and that’s seriously saying something sad/wonderful. It’s beyond a shame this class has to end, I love her so much, our entire class agreed she deserved an outstanding TA award the second she left the room. She was always so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and this was straightup the only section I have ever not wanted to miss. My life is literally changed, she was the best grad student role model I ever could have asked for. I hope to be as effective as a TA as she is. And ADORABLE she gave me her number because we made friends as we suffered tutoring people not into soc/anthro, she was super excited when she told me she emailed me her number, so cute. This was her first quarter ever TA-ing and she told me she hardly knew what she was doing, but she did so well. Can’t wait for final grades to be done so I can write her a glowing recommendation.
It is really bad that I do my best work under deadlines. I blame my six years as a yearbook editor. I need to break this habit and set earlier deadlines for myself. I also had a horrible dream last night that I got in a really severe fight with my roomie… might be time for some space.
