I love love love it when people learn things from pop culture/shows/books/even fanfiction etc. I learned how to jump start a car from Phineas and Ferb. (Positive to positive, negative to ground.) I’ve seen two posts tonight of people being embarrassed about learning things from unconventional places. Fuck that. I’m so glad you know weird obscure facts about bananas because of that one Captain America fic you read. It makes me so fucking happy that you learned what the word “petrichor” means from watching Doctor Who. This goes along with cancelling cringe culture: I’m cancelling being embarrassed about learning things, no matter the source.
Do you have some empowering articles on excellence? I've disappointed myself with idleness these past few weeks and I don't know how to pick myself back up into a healthy, productive routine. I feel like it's too late to pursue what I want and I've no redemption.
