Toddler

  1. Toddler Prof here -- just commented on a PhD student's paper. It was painful. All of the faculty want this guy out of the program, and he needs to fail the class to get dropped. The...(more) 2 hr 30 min ago (17 replies)
    paper, as usual, was hopeless (at one point he said that one in five of something (25%)...) So how do you provide feedback on that kind of thing? He's been in this country for 15 years and still can't construct a grammatically coherent sentence. It was just awful.

                        So I've tried to make the best of it here but fundamentally it doesn't bring me joy. I just think it's all about where you feel at home, and that's a different place and feeling for each person. I feel "homesick" all the time for a place I've never actually lived. And lonely here. But I have to keep going and find the joy where I can and hope that one day I can move to where I feel most at home.

                      be the same in adulthood. I just don't want or need that anymore. But its part of the adult LI culture too, from what I see with my friends. I'm not there anymore, bc I can't do that. I only found happiness as an adult when I stopped needing other people to create my fun. I have a great time by myself and/or have met the most unexpected new friends by opening my perspective a little.

      community. It's so nice out today. Go to Sea Cliff Beach and let dc go on the swings there - super relaxing. Along the way, stop at Grass Roots bakery right on GC Ave. Or if not, today is dog day at Old Westbury Gardens. You can walk the grounds & see all the dogs & even bring your own if you have one. Or take dc to Barnes & Noble (I prefer Carle Place one to Manhasset). You have to just do stuff you like, in places you like. I know it's lonely. But we live in a beautiful place if you just take advantage...
