Ran a pedagogy workshop last night, and one of the participants said she wanted to be more confident.  I asked her what being confident would look and sound like, and she just wound up mimicking me.

On one hand I’m flattered but on the other hand I feel like I’ve pulled the greatest con in the history of academia.

There’s something… liberating? relieving? kinda paradoxically empowering? about looking back at an argument you had 1 or 2 or 5 years ago and being able to go “now I’m on the other person’s side, not mine.”

Because even though it means you were a shithead at the time, it also means that by now you’ve learned a lesson from being a shithead, and you’re less likely to be a shithead in the future. (Or at least not in the same way.) It means you grew into a better person.

… Course, it also means you’ve gotta, like. Go apologize to someone you were a shithead to 1 or 2 or 5 years ago, and try to make up for it if there’s still stuff that needs to be made up for. But if they deserve that apology, that’s also something you WANNA do for them.

But reading tags is the best! It's like getting a peek into someone's mind. I really love it a lot. But I also always forget that people ome times read the tags, but that's also the charm.

So do I have to be careful with what I write in the tags now?


“When it’s one of them, it’s fine, but as soon as the other walks in, they light up and their ages seem to drop by 30 years. It’s like the difference between having one puppy in a room and having two puppies in a room – like it really is, they increase exponentially.”
