I agree with this sentiment. What’s happening in my classrooms is that students are obviously chatting with one another through messaging on the computers, even with my open-book tests. Red flags are uniformity of answers and tics of phrasing that do not derive from the material. This is slightly distressing, but I’m Read more

I read a comment a couple months ago that explained that the CDC was using vague language to categorize people with most underlying conditions under the “people who may be at risk for a severe outcome” (despite worrisome data already coming in) umbrella, thereby erasing their ability to legally fight for Read more

This is the sort of person who’s raised by “boys will be boys!” parents.

I tell people that it’s not good for “my anxiety.” I’m not an overly-anxious person, but putting it in those terms (instead of “I’m afraid”) has resulted in no push back.

I felt the same way about signing our mortgage. We did eventually get married, but the real commitment was buying a condo together in my opinion.

Similarly, the fact that you don’t look at a guy and are immediately turned on doesn’t mean that you’re asexual or dysfunctional or otherwise broken. Read more

Yesterday, I was working at my desk, which abuts the bathroom door, and I distinctly heard my partner chattering to someone as he turned off the shower. It was his voice, very normal, just obviously weird since he doesn’t talk to himself. And when I opened the door and teased him about it, he denied that he was Read more

If your internship was competitive, as many are, you can still put that acceptance on your resume with a note that it was canceled due to COVID-19.

It’s still not a win for me but it’s MUCH, much improved.

As a woman, I’ve had a hard time ending dates. I’ve done it, but the men I’ve dated have made it pretty uncomfortable. The, “Come on, let’s just have one more” or “Are you sure I can’t take you to dinner” has led to them interrogating me about whether or not I “really” have plans later. For some of them, I had wanted Read more

Some people are more honest when they drink alcohol, and some people transform. Alcohol is drug that affects brains differently, not a truth serum. I think she acted like an enormous fucking asshole that night, but I haven’t formed an opinion about her entire personality because of it.

Sophie’s wedding tiara is the ugliest tiara I’ve ever seen, but she’s got an aquamarine one that she’s busted out more recently which is very pretty.

Arche- as a prefix means to make a beginning, to be sure, but also to be the aggressor or ruler. Archos as a standalone noun (and the probable root of the name) means “master,” making Master Archie (his official title), a little redundant.

I believe she deserves to be heard, but disagree that she’s being ignored. It’s all over the internet. I assume that larger publications, like the NYT, are reaching out and trying to get their own interviews with her. Worth noting that not many publications endorsed Joe Biden in the primary, so it’s not like they’re Read more

Colleges may not be for-profit, but the amount of money they spend on sports and administrative glut is extreme. I was lucky enough to go to a private college on a scholarship, so my criticism is not coming from a place of envy. There was a lot of waste there.

It’s painful, but he made the right decision. I don’t know how colleges expect students to continue going into such high debt when they’ve seen what student loans have done millennials.

Latinx is the term that the student group that addresses diversity initiatives and issues in the school has asked teachers to use. That instruction is a lot more valuable to me than some asshole ranting on the internet.

I am teaching high school remotely right now, and I’ve noticed that my Latinx and Black students are also disproportionately affected by distance learning. While many of their classmates have newer PCs or Mac computers, some are relying on older laptops or Chromebooks. While that worked okay IN school, it’s been Read more

I like Bernie’s policies (dislike Bernie tremendously but that’s neither here nor there in my voting practices) but he didn’t win the black vote. He had six years to win the black vote. He didn’t win it. When we brought it up before Super Tuesday, his supporters would scream about his fight for civil rights. That’s Read more
