Just a PSA because I realize not everyone knows this.

Some adolescents are able to stay up all night frequently. To party, or perhaps to do (home) work or art.

I don't know why, but as you grow older, you will lose this ability. This is normal as far as I know.

However, don't work all-nighters into your schedules, don't beat yourself up when you discover you can't pull the same shit you did as a student, and don't make it a habit. Take care of yourself.

Alan Turing bday, suicide mention 

Alan Turing was born today

He was gay and neurodivergent, famous for 'Turing machine,' a model for modern/general purpose computers

he was also chemically castrated by his government for being gay (instead of prison time), and later committed suicide at 41

Rest in Power, Alan :heart_cybre:

@archivist this has been the common strand of solidarity between grad student workers and janitorial staff, bus drivers, dining hall workers, and everyone else whose labor actually makes the university run (see the 10 years that led up to the UCSC wildcat strike and #COLA4All campaign) Cool to see the sentiment spreading.

Narrator: Unfortunately, everything was about to happen *even more*
