Why do adults think “So what’s your major? Oh, and what are you going to do with that?” is acceptable small talk

What am I going to do with my degree? Hang it on the wall and cry, probably

I gotta say, in hindsight, I wish to death I would have listened to those comments instead of dismissing them. A degree in Women’s Studies was extremely fun to get, and I thoroughly enjoyed college and certainly the course of study affected my thinking and behavior and my life… but it is the most useless degree of all time… which I am still paying for. Thank goodness I minored in Creative Writing because at least that’s somewhat useful in a practical way.

Reading a book called What Southern Women Know. I know all this stuff (& live by most of it) but reading in black and white sure does zing my feminist buttons.

Harrison Finder - Silhouettes

There is no way to describe how profoundly dark it was while we were camping this weekend. Such deep forest that once the fire was out and the larnerns were off, the darkness was a thing unto itself. We simply don’t experience anything even close to that here in the city. 
We trotted out the telescope last night and I couldn’t see much (not a great telescope), but then I had the genius idea to JUST PUT ON MY GLASSES… and oh my good holy god. My mouth literally fell open and I just gasped. 
So. Many. Stars. 
What a gift! So now I kinda have the fever and want to just take a star-gazing trip. I have no idea where I could go to get far enough away from light to be able to really see them. The coast is likely, but it’s always so cloudy. 
No matter what, that memory of seeing alllll the stars, the entire sky just lit up and glittering, will stay with me forever.
