To take time to think about what parts of it she likes, how they make her feel, why they appeal to her. To slow down and really savor those moments: is it the sound of a machine working right? Is it the moment when a math problem is solved? If she can learn to really enjoy the special, personal rewards that come from science -- this will serve her well over time. It will empower her for future struggles: if she is grounded in the right rewards, then she'll always be doing science for the right reasons, and she also won't need to rely upon others to reward her. It will make her a better scientist in the long run, and a happier and more fulfilled person, as well.(less)

why publish old stuff?

Just because!

I started this site in2013 as a blog about interactions between women and men and Academia. Then I started writing a book, and after that I wrote another book, and I was all like Pshh-shaw, who out there wants to read that old stuff?So I took the blog posts down and advertised that the site was “under construction” for about three years. Now, three years later, I’m all likePshh-shaw,

Quotes by Hope Jahren  (?)

“Science has taught me that everything is more complicated than we first assume, and that being able to derive happiness from discovery is a recipe for a beautiful life. It has also convinced me that carefully writing everything down is the only real defense we have against forgetting something important that once was and is no more, including the spruce tree that should have outlived me but did not.”
Hope Jahren, Lab Girl

“Working in the hospital teaches you that there are only two kinds of people in the world: the sick and the not sick. If you are not sick, shut up and help. Twenty-five years later, I still cannot reject this as an inaccurate worldview.”
Hope Jahren, Lab Girl

“Each beginning is the end of a waiting. We are each given exactly one chance to be. Each of us is both impossible and inevitable. Every replete tree was first a seed that waited.”

“It was birthright time, goddamnit. Though the recession was still hovering over the city, I didn't let it detour me. I began getting up at 5:00 a.m. and hustling over to the factories. Right on the entrance gate to the personnel office was a sign that read NO APPLICATIONS. Undaunted, I would stride forward. Don't play games with me, GM. My name is Hamper. Surely you remember that loyal, long-suffering clan. Just show me to my setup and everything will be fine.”
Ben Hamper

“It is easy, from a safe distance, to overlook the fact that in undercities governed by corruption, where exhausted people vie on scant terrain for very little, it is blisteringly hard to be good.”

“I slowed my pace. Years of hauling water, wringing out clothes, scrubbing floors, emptying chamber pots, with no chance of beauty or color or light in my life, stretched before me like a landscape of flat land where, a long way off, the sea is visible but can never be reached.”
Tracy Chevalier, Girl with a Pearl Earring

“The approach required more persistence than imagination, but it produced remarkable results.”
Siddhartha Mukherjee, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer

“People do not trust the slick and polished. Instead, the objectives of media training should be to learn how to directly address difficult questions, how to avoid falling into media traps, and most importantly, how to accomplish the two previous tasks with honesty and integrity.”
Jeff Ansell
