my bias against academia
i think Folwer! has hit the nail on the head in explaining my own grudge against academia. i fancied i would become a professor back in my college days, getting paid to think all day and hang out on some beautiful campus. the closer i got to graduation, the more i realized that i did not want to live that life. turns out i thrive on actually accomplishing things, not just thinking about accomplishing things, though i definitely appreciate intellectual pursuits.
