It was a relief to go to college and no longer feel like the odd one for any reason other than my own personal oddness, and to feel like there were lots of other people that I could identify with over the general shared experience of "because I'm X, everyone assumes Y," where Y can be positive or negative, but not always true or appreciated. We all have stories, and I can laugh at a lot of mine now.
One strange Y that I never knew about until today is that people assume that they can pet your hair if you're black. Really??? That's just weird.
Some of the other assumptions in the Tumblr are more sinister and depressing (and more apparent to me as one minority observing the experiences of another minority), but the hair thing was a weird surprise.
TIL the legal profession is perceived by some as being comprised of people who love their jobs, which are extremely relevant and very flexible. _In your face, every article ever written about why you shouldn't go to law school and become a lawyer._
Lesson: interesting scientist > lawyer + cookies
I have been so engrossed with Hackbright stuff that I neglected to remind you all that 's Influx became available for purchase (In hardcover, ebook, and audiobook formats) on Thursday.
For those who have forgotten who Dan is, first, I'm judging you and second, he is the author of the excellent novels Daemon, Freedom, and Kill Decision.
Influx is just as good as his prior works AND the rights have been purchased by 20th Century Fox. Now you too can be a hipster who reads the book before seeing the movie.
I'll wait a week or so before posting about specific plot points and ideas so I don't spoil things too much.
