When I think back to my school days, it just feels like a huge waste of time.

Sure, we've been taught a ton of things during that time, but imagine how much more you could have learnt with the right support... with someone who would actually listen to _your_ questions, instead of just going through the subject materials?

Of course that wouldn't scale, but with kids being so eager for knowledge, it just feels like lost time.

Founding fathers were no doubt great and no hate but uhh project is totally unmaintained for so many years yet critical to so many-- I've sent pull requests and filed thoroughly investigated issues but have yet to see so much as a rudely worded comment+close, nevermind a thoughtful response. If project shows life again, can merge back for sure! πŸ™ƒ#WhatDoYouMeanACountryIsNotAProgram #SkillTransfer #LawsAreKindaLikeRFCSIfYouSquintHardEnough

Applies in undergrad too, tbh

Wish I would have learned that a long time ago and not followed the advice of what other people thought was best for me vs. my own ambitions

One of the hardest parts of being a first-gen grad student is learning that it's okay to advocate for yourself

I love wiring closets. There are stories and dramas written in great detail - if you know how to read them.
