“If anyone reading this is questioning their decisions or considering doing something other than what they are “supposed” to do, my advice to you is to find a way to make your career what you want it to be – maybe that’s tenure, or maybe that’s hodgepodging the job you want.”
Because I love my students and am inspired by our engagement, but I don’t like the system that brings us together. #upsetthesetup
