I love the advice to make sure you’re being very specific about what groups of students you’re talking about (SES, first gen, specific ethnic/racial groups). I think if you combine that with your decision to only talk about it when you can really get into it, it might also help to start with an overview of what the Read more

I saw a different version of this graphic a few years ago that I just want to share here too!

Yeah my bank app lets me just take a picture of the check and will deposit it no fuss! So I find them a little cumbersome and old fashioned but definitely still useful.

Yup, I’ve paid rent by check since I started renting in college, I got checks in card when I got married two years ago, and I paid some health insurance stuff with checks this summer because I didn’t want to set up the bank transfer stuff for only three payments. My friend does freelance-y theatre teaching and she Read more

I went to my friends house and drank cider by her fire pit anyway. I woke up much sicker but I think it was worth it.

Surgeons are totally nuts (#notall etc disclaimer). They totally think they’re the hottest shit on the face of the planet and believe that they can fix anything in the face of all research that says whatever they’re about to do works ok for ~10 years and then totally falls apart (this is orthopedic surgeons in Read more

I hate having routines, and the thought of filling out a spreadsheet with my mood, food and activities every day makes me want to scream. Read more

I adore Nicole’s writing but: 1) she’s very intense. She has a spreadsheet for all her habits for every day and she plans her life to a degree that I couldn’t stand. 2) She has digestive issues that mean it’s better for her health and mental health to eat the same bland food at the same time every day. She talked Read more

I put on a bra but left my pajama pants and giant sweatshirt on.

My chacos give me really intense blisters on the bottoms of my feet, which sucks because they were so expensive I feel like I can’t get rid of them.

My husbands college friend was very bad at cooking and once washed raw chicken with soap. And then was confused when everyone thought the meal tasted weird.

This is a good point: I just checked the ABET website (accrediting board for science and tech programs) and they have a “find programs” search function that has listed first thing all the online-only programs they’ve accredited. Read more

You can get graduation rates/timelines from the program or from the school (someone in admissions will probably know, or maybe the registrar?) (also take their timelines as a best case scenario, not necessarily a typical scenario) but if you want to know the reputation of the program the best way is probably to ask Read more

oh, I misunderstood what you meant by one of your comments. Half or like 90-95% of half seems totally fair to me then!

I would be very nervous with charging the subletter anything that I would feel uncomfortable with them finding out the split. My cousin was trying to sublet from my friend (in Manhattan, so crazy expensive) and they were trying to charge her somewhere between 1.5 and 2x the actual rent for the room. It made me really Read more

2. I hate being alone in my apartment. I’ve had to make lists of “stuff to do when you’re sad/bored” when my husband travels because if I don’t I lay on the floor and drink too much because I’m sooooooooo boooooooored and it makes me sad. I don’t have FOMO in any other aspect of my life, I don’t know why I hate being Read more
