Learning to Read

I have said this before, but I am convinced the vast majority of a PhD is learning to read. Yes, yes, I know that to do a PhD you need to know how to read before you get here. However, what I mean is that in doing a PhD you learn how to read someone sympathetically. It is a skill I thought I had, but one I have realized I need to hone more and more each day.

Words

Our words are powerful. This is why it is so concerning when we use our words carelessly or we don't try to carefully understand the words others use. Words matter. My words matter. Other people's words matter.
