I need to leave for work soon so I can’t get to my office before my office hours start. I am very annoyed that I already have pre-meds complaining to me about their grades in physics lab. I gave them a 3.5/4. They are mad.

Ugh, I’m sorry. I had to evacuate Belize many years ago because of a hurricane, and so the flight was...turbulent. It was scary, but it was fine.  I like to put on music and concentrate on that.

I’m sorry your mom is feeling anxious! I’m not a big proponent of straw bans for that reason. I think there are better things that we can do to help the environment. I can make the switch, so I have, but I don’t think we should force people to do it.

I am here to recommend the Zoku reusable metal straw. It has a silicone tip so you’re teeth don’t get cold, it’s collapsible, and comes with its own carrying case. There’s also a straw cleaner that fits perfectly inside.

I have a hyphenated last name (and have since birth), so I am very easily googleable. When I first went on the job market one of the top hits was my wedding registry, which was annoying. Interestingly, when you google me all the top hits are work+twitter (mostly good, but I’d rather twitter not show up) and nothing

It’s interesting, because Biden isn’t even these white ladies’ top choice.  But agreed.

I had to teach, so I wasn’t able to watch. My top tier is Warren, Castro, Harris (in that order). Middle is Klobuchar, Booker, Beto, Mayor Pete (probably in that order). Bottom is Bernie, Biden, and Yang (in that order).

I went to yoga at the campus gym today, and two of my students also came! Which was one of my fears, because I didn’t want my students seeing me in gym clothes. We all survived. But it was only an ok yoga class.

I’m not a lawyer, but absolutely.  What the fuck is wrong with your coworker?  Perhaps you can give them some headphones.

Ask your mentor what kind of letter she will write you. It’s awkward but necessary. My previous postdoc supervisor wrote a bad one two years ago and I didn’t know. Last year I specifically asked if he would write a letter that spoke to my strengths as a researcher and he said he’d write the same letter as previously

My husband doesn’t eat pork so if he’s on a trip I will sometimes buy sausage or bacon and do stuff with it. I’m definitely more inclined to order it when I’m at restaurants.

Aquarius/Simple Carbonara, but I’d happily eat all of them, with the exception of maybe the cauliflower/mushroom bolognese, since I’m not a mushroom fan.
