I'm trying to do a better job at this. Trying to feature more POC authors not only in my classroom but also in my leisure reading as well

Not yet but it’s in progress. I don’t have much from the traditional curriculum on my shelves.

In my classroom, YES. I’m proud of the mix of culturally relevant material and classics I currently have available. At home, no. I have a personal deep rooted interest in classic philosophy and canon of literature texts ranging from Wuthering Heights and Dracula to Tolstoy/Dostoevsky/existentialist authors. I don’t feel the need to justify my personal interests, but I do feel the need to present a wealth of culturally relevant texts to my students.

I'm interning at KPMG's deal advisory for 6 months. I'm doing pretty good, they wanted to extend my internship period till my graduation and I can conduct valuation projects on my own. They don't assign analysts to my projects so that I can work like an analyst. however.. I'm uncomfortable with the new analysts who know nothing about the job ordering me all the day. I'm not graduated yet but is there any way to promote now?

I had crazy burnout inducing weeks and I am now on a slower pace finally for the second week this year (~20 billable hours wk). Not sure how well I performed in those weeks prior but deals closed and nothing went wrong at the end. Now I think about what’s lacking in my life (partner, joy, expertise in my field haha) and I just don’t want to work or care to work anymore. Anybody in a similar boat? How did you get out of this?
