Important read in The Guardian

It’s time to end the academic culture that says working yourself to sickness means you’re just working hard enough. It’s time to end the culture that says taking time for yourself and your own health comes at the expense of doing good work. It’s time to end the culture that says sleep deprivation, anxiety attacks, and binge drinking are just part of the game. It’s time to end the culture that says if you’re not getting along with your mentor, then it’s all your fault. It’s time to end the culture that says advisors and faculty don’t have to take responsibility for the health of their students. It’s time to end the culture that says seeking help means you’re weak, or a bad researcher.

I’m not afraid to admit that this is an issue that touched my life during my Ph.D. Thankfully I had amazing friends and family outside my program to help me through tough times. But I know that not everyone has a support system like mine. I also watched in sadness when, after a fellow Ph.D. student committed suicide, our program, university, and health services did nothing to acknowledge that it happened, or that the culture of academia could have contributed to it, and (as far as any of us have been able to tell), has done little if anything to stop it from happening again.

Some graduate programs are putting better student support systems in place, and for every bad advisor we can find an exception that cares and helps their students to the utmost of their ability. But academia, overall, still possesses a culture of acceptance and ignorance when it comes to mental health issues, especially in graduate programs.

It’s time to end that culture.

Routledge’s Miniature Library - Language of Flowers c1880

Peach Blossom = I am your captive. Pine-Apple = You are Perfect. Pomegranate = Foolishness

Measures 70mm x 97mm

There’s some great stuff in here. I never would have though that pine pitch would be included in a book about the language of flowers, but apparently you can tell someone you think they’re quite the deep thinker by presenting them with a blob of it. And boy oh boy, you better be really careful about which pinks you present your love with! And do be sure they’re either a true single or a true double. You could really mix your messages. And let’s not overlook the delicious persimon. What a message! ~AR

Anyone know what that cover’s made of? Because I have a vintage copy of Goethe’s works from roughly the same time, and the cover is somewhat similar.

The binding is card with cloth over the top which is embossed and highlighted in silver (more commonly the highlights are gold)
