I dont know if you hate grocery shopping and want the convenience of the prepackaged etc but something I tried that I liked a lot as a sort of medium ground is eMeals and Tasty.

I have an update on the email I sent my uncle. We talked. It didn’t go well. He told me all lives matter so I told him that was a racist thing to say. He wanted to talk about looting & I told him if he cared more about the gift shop at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville than the lives of Black people, then he is racist. I Read more

Took Friday off, with Ascension day we have a four day weekend and went south of the Alps, a change of scenery and the semblance of normalcy. We can’t yet leave the country but traveling within is actually encouraged (as long as all the rules are observed).

Academics?! Granted, the only reason she *now* thinks that if a grad student did it, they would have to paid via an research assistantship to do it... is because for the past year and half she had a graduate student doing an equivalent amount of labwork on a material leftover from other graduate students projects (it Read more

I’m stoked to go back but not until it’s safe for everyone. My college is trying to do F2F classes, with social distancing, starting in Oct. and I was like, NOPE! I’ll be online, thank you. Maybe things’ll be better by then but I honestly don’t see how. :(

I just checked progress reports on our LMS—one student emailed me five minutes after looking at the final assignment sheet, where the date is clearly stated and requirements are listed and, of course, the email is like, “What is it? When is it due?”. The other student still hasn’t looked at anything regarding the
