On What's the Most You've Ever Won/Lost Gambling?

I found a $20 on the floor of the Bellagio, took it straight to a blackjack table and wagered it all. I got a 20, the dealer got 21. Easy come, easy go.

On The Anxiety of Returning Things

I have phobias about a whole range of social activities, but if I pretend I'm doing it on behalf of someone (sibling, parent, close friend) it becomes so much easier. Going to an interview "for my sister" involves a certain amount of mental gymnastics, but it's worth it! I hope. Or I am going to be one heckuva crazy person down the line (or possibly now!).

On Why I Didn't Study STEM

@JtotheBtothe Yes! And even if we all could be engineers or whatever, we'd have an engineering bubble and the engineer market would collapse. It takes a lot of different careers to make the world go 'round.

On Why I Didn't Study STEM

@Dana Cruikshank@facebook Very much in agreement. When I took geometry in high school, doing proofs was the most laborious, hateful thing I could imagine (and having a teacher tell me if I accepted Jesus in my heart I would be a better student didn't help [luckily I didn't go to a religious school, and she was fired for that and other things]) but other things, like art projects based on the golden ratio and fibonacci and fractals were right up my alley.

On On Not Defining Ourselves By What We Are Paid to Do

Unemployed and looking at doing some crap job 'cause the bills got to get paid- I needed this reminder right now.
