    Total lack of motivation [vent]

    I'm just so discouraged by this job hunt. It seems my options are either data science or some version of finances. Neither of which I have the qualifications for. I just want to write about math and science. That's all. But then nobody will let me do that either. I just want to hide under a rock.

    Tried job hunting online today. Applied to a few places. I just feel so discouraged. I've been applying for months and haven't heard anything.

    If you could have anything in the world to drink right now, what would it be?

    Try to look for tea called London Fog. It's basically vanilla earl grey. Delicious! Harney and Sons makes a good one.

    Depression is deep today. I cut my meds to help with excess weight loss. I guess it'll take some time to adjust.

    Job options for a math phd?

    Thank you all for the responses. These are some really good suggestions. I guess part of my thing is that I want to move to a specific place. Back to where I went to grad school (it's only 50 min from my hometown). I don't want to be faculty though. I know most of my friends aren't there anymore...

    I just saw a news bit about ketchup, baked beans, and mayonnaise flavored icecream. Sweet potato sounds way better than that.

    What is Your Pet Doing Right Now?

    He's sleeping on the couch. Again. All the time. Norm's a cat though.

    Job options for a math phd?

    My phd was in applied mathematics with application in condensed matter physics. Theoretical, no lab work. However, I don't want to do anymore research. I do miss teaching but a lot of academic teaching positions require research. My peers mainly either go to professorships or laboratory work...

    Job options for a math phd?

    **this is a repost of my profile status** I'm still looking for jobs. I have a math phd but I like to write and read so I've been looking at technical writing jobs. Anyone have any recommendations on what someone with a science phd could do that is not academic or industrial? I currently...

    Do people enjoy riding public transit?

    I don't drive. My motor skills are very poor. In grad school (3 years ago), I would take the bus all the time. I liked the independence but I hated the social interactions. The bus had their regulars since it was the University shuttle so the same people would sit near me and talk. So I would...

    Weight loss support thread.

    I want to join! I gained about 50 lbs in the pandemic and also because of new meds. I'm off two of them now so it should be a bit easier.

    Good luck and Godspeed. :) Even as a vegetarian, I love their fries. The struggle is real.

    Do you have a pet?

    Yes! If you like cats, then adopt a cat. They are very low maintenance. All you really have to do is feed them and take out their litter, cuddle them a couple times. They bathe themselves and if they are an indoor cat, they don't need to go outside to play or be walked. I have a cat. His name...

    Your Favorite Books

    1) 1984: This is my favorite book. I love how militant it was but yet it seemed to forecast the future a bit (especially the part about newspeak). I'm not necessarily sure why I love it so much. George Orwell just has that spark. 2) Under the Dome: this book ticked me off so much because of the...

    More trouble with roommates

    It sounds like he was the one who overreacted. If it keeps being like this and if you have the means, you should find a new roommate.

    Hi from CA!

    Thank you so much for the sweet sentiments. I come from a Christian family but they are very open to my conversion. Sometimes I have a bit of uncertainty in what I identify as. I don't know if I should say this or that. However, it's nice to know someone (you) who can sympathize. Thank you for...
