Hi, I'm Anna. I do and things at a small liberal arts university. In my spare time, I in two women's choruses, play on two teams (one of which I manage), volunteer at a community station, and watch/listen to games. I also like , , and .

work 

I had my annual review meeting with my boss yesterday, and the thing that I'm holding close to my heart is the part where I expressed concern about being too critical and bringing him too many problems, and him telling me that I earned that because I know/do my work so well.

work 

I am so, so tired of the annual/quarterly/whatever the fuck they feel like doing this year review cycle.

So tired.

I have no creativity left for it.

I don't want to set goals for myself or my staff. I don't want to come up with another way to say, "I did my job, again." I just want to do the work and get the paycheck and use the energy spent on this endless cycle of one-size-fits-none assessment on something that is actually beneficial.

work, email 

First day back from a week at the beach where I brought but did not turn on my laptop. Not too awful, actually.

I know that it will be surprising to some to see that Robyn is my top track played this week, but for some reason "Call Your Girlfriend" just bangs and sometimes I really need to listen to it on repeat because it needs to be about three or four times longer than it is.

Please boost: People who are at high-risk for COVID-19 complications:

1. What could conferences better do to support you?

2. What policies or resources would help you decide whether to attend an in-person conference?

The chipotle beef panini is extra spicy today, which I would normally enjoy, but with a sinus infection, it's just making the mucus situation worse.

Alma, violence 

I don't know if it's my local network connection or NA05, but Alma page loads or non-loads is about to make me punch a monitor today.

Spotify made me a playlist of Sleater-Kinney and contemporary bands that are heavily influenced by them, and really, it's just perfect for today.

Again, because it unfortunately keeps happening, a reminder that it’s journalistic malpractice to call a 6-week abortion ban a “heartbeat bill” or claim these laws ban abortion after a “heartbeat” is detected.

An embryo at 6 weeks gestation does not have a heart.

Cardinals broadcast describing MadBum’s wedding outfit, and it’s giving me lesbian vibes. Like, I would wear that.

You might think that Dublin Core is the genre of music the Pogues play or something. Well I have some terrible news.

But really, why are people paying $50+ for tickets to *not* watch the game on the field?

I'm still getting a sense of the culture on Mastodon, and wondering if I need to have different accounts on different instances to cover all of my interests, or if one is sufficient and folks will forgive the chaos? For now, this is all of me -- librarian/library stuff, baseball obsessions, queer/lesbian culture, left/socialist-leaning politics, and whatever else is on my mind that day.

I know the Mets and Cardinals have been going at it the past couple days, but when I see a guy get hit in the ankle with a 3-2 pitch I definitely think that's on purpose and want to go throw at the other team's best player in the bottom of the inning.
