One thing that was really hard for me when I was in academia is how lonely it felt to be working on something that nobody cared about. I was seeing all of these beautiful things and I couldn't share them with anyone.

Sometimes I want to go back and do mathematics "for real" but then I feel sad when I think I won't be able to share it with anyone.

@JordiGH Exposure to people will cure you of that. I prescribe 23ccs of 5% internet solution, applied topically twice a day.

@ersatzmaus Amazingly, all of the people in the world are just making me want more of them. I love people and I love being around people.

It's why I'm on Masto, after all. I want to talk to other people.
