I think it’s hilarious how strangely disconnected college and work are. We put all this effort into tests, and exams, and reading and writing papers on the effects of operant conditioning in the context of long-term memory, or personification of animal life in Ulysses and his journeys, and what they don’t tell you, or teach you, is how to deal with all the crazy fucking people you will spend 8 hours (if you’re lucky) a day with, 5 days a week.
Because there's a lot of crazy fucking people in this world. And work is not about getting your job done. It's about navigating through all the crazies in the most efficient way possible.
