    Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

    Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

    In academic life, there is a lot of collaboration. Sometimes those relationships are wonderful, but other times…you need to break up. Today we talk about how and when to break up with people and projects and listening to your internal compass. Plus, for our Peer Review segment, we share all our feelings about diversity committees.

    Embracing Social Media

    Embracing Social Media

    Today (after a sidebar on academic horoscopes), we talk about embracing social media! It can be annoying, it can be confusing, but it can also be a fun place to build a community that you wouldn’t otherwise have access to. We also talk about the benefits of stepping away from the screen and being fully present in real life.

    Professor-ing When Life Happens

    Professor-ing When Life Happens

    Today we talk about how to move forward, or move at all, when “life” happens. Sometimes you just can’t professor through when you’re also adjusting to major life events or experiencing grief. When these things happen we know that research and writing can take a backseat to your needs as a human. We chat through lowering your standards, getting the help you need to make it through, getting good with feelings, and the practices that have sustained us through our own tough times.
