You mess up *one* time and don’t get your kid’s annual check up booked until a month late and you forever have to go late every year after that because insurance won’t pay for more than one visit per year.

#specificationsgrading for this very reason - work is graded pass/fail and students have to correct what they got wrong in order to “pass” an assignment. The best part - no haggling over partial credit.https://twitter.com/cesifoti/status/1437043299852996608 …
You know how if you support a podcast, sometimes the host promises to say your name? Well, if you tell me you voted no in the CA recall, I promise to say your name! I don't have a podcast so it's probably gonna be in bed with my husband? You won't hear it, but he will! Hilarious!

LOL at these “I hope your summer was relaxing and rejuvenating” emails at work. No, in fact, it wasn’t. Not even close. I am a wizened husk of my former self.
It’s Thursday. Classes start Monday. I’m still not sure if I’m teaching inside or outside and thus if I have any A/V at all. Fourth covid semester here we come!
Adults should add to the list that kids can see their considerations are the bottom of anyone’s concerns— if they appear at all. When adults won’t get themselves vaccinated even to keep kids safe, it sends a clear message to kids how little they matter. 19/
If you're a registered voter in California, the state sent you a ballot to vote on the recall. It's not enough to know that the recall is an attempted power grab by the GOP. You have to vote and return the ballot. Do it now. We need you to keep California blue.

While running around to get supplies ahead of the hurricane, I had a moment of peace when I saw the new mural being installed in New Haven of Edward Bouchet. The first Black PhD in the US. His degree was in physics.pic.twitter.com/SXT5NtqDPY

While in a virtual meeting with NASA folks, my 2 year old brought me some fake food. I unmuted to gasp and say “this corn is sooo delicious! Om nom nom” because my brain is broken
