The stories resonated the most. Siddartha, Metamorphosis, and Death of a Salesman impacted me greatly my senior year of high school.

All of my favorite texts, every single one, are the ones I read with teachers who were excited to read them and made it seem fun. 😁 And also anything in my 5th grade science book because I really liked the layout and colors in that particular textbook. 😂

Gulliver's Travels, Brave New World, & 1984. I didn't realize at the time I read them that GT had a profound impact on Huxley and Orwell. I got to teach the latter two for nearly 20 years, lucky me, but taught GT just once. All three are now more relevant than ever.

Advice wanted: My firm lied about our raises this year. They said we’d match the other top 10 firms, and that was absolute BS. I’m having a hard time staying motivated. I’m doing senior level work without the title or pay. Fresh college grads are getting paid more than me. I’m already job searching, but I feel bad that I don’t have the same drive as I did before when I thought I would be receiving a proper raise. I learned my lesson. Any advice for a young professional?
