Because it never stops ♥️ On International Women’s Day, I can’t help but think of how sometimes academia reproduces all the patterns it seeks to denounce 😓 And just like I’m aware that most of the men I know in academia don’t look like this one, I know I have also encountered him in seminars, conferences, reading groups, as a professor, a grad or undergrad student... Here’s a question I’ve been wanting to ask for a long time: how has being (and/or identifying as) a woman influenced your work, presence, and relationships, in academia?

After 4 years of grad school, I still don’t know what defines a “successful” day. No matter what I do, how much I read, write, prepare for classes, teach, grade, attend talks, I always say at the end of the day that “I’m so tired today, and yet I didn’t do anything!” I’m also wondering when I internalized the idea that resting, exercising, reading for fun, cooking, or doing any of our basic human needs, is being “lazy” and “unproductive”. All in all, these “fun” activities only take perhaps 3-4 hours of the day compared to how much we work but somehow they are always too much: I’m spending too much time watching a series, too much time cooking, too much time sleeping. And too much time drawing and writing this post 😖🧐 So, what is your definition of a successful day? Tag a friend 🐨
