#1: I came home from work and started drinking on an empty stomach. This semester I must resolve to stay out of department and campus drama. If I think about how bad things are I will just be angry all the time. I should really try to care way way less about the lack of respect I’m getting.

#1: no but first day of faculty on contract; college-wide meetings
#2: next time bring the alcohol with
in a thermos with hot chocolate they’ll never know
#1: SO FIRST my travel request to a conference was denied for no stated reason.
then an administrator gave a 2-hr speech about strategic planning in which ze said how much ze hates research (not in so many words)
also a lawyer talked for 20 min straight about discrimination laws “here are some examples of harassment. Don’t do them. Here is a list of protected classes. I shall repeat them like 5 times.” [Note: we all did the required online training. It was less detailed than that, but seemed to last forever. Duh.]
and the ethernet in my office died over break for no real reason.
#2: Alcohol in an insulated mug with chocolate. It’s how I got through my philosophy class in college.
