I LOVED CHERNOBYL. But as a side note, @star-anise you think the field is worth getting into now? Is it rewarding or are you frustrated with the state of it? I’ve been considering it as a possibility. Despite all my life failings and being almost 30. While I could give a list of why I think I might be good at it, I’m more thinking about it from a.. we seem to be approaching an era where mental health care is very much needed and very lacking. Especially where I live.
Personally? I love this field and cannot imagine being happy in any other. Like, I know that people do have happy lives as lawyers or truckers or scientists or artists, but I still feel kind of sketchy about how they do so.
But every job interview that I have is far more about me deciding if the employer is going to give me the support and resources that I need. I’m still scrabbling to get those things. I still wish I had the financial resources to hire a permanent personal assistant to do all the business-end things for me. I think it’s desperately important to find a good source of funding and income, if at all possible, separate from mental health work. (Oh, how I envy therapists with engineer husbands.)
So yeah, that’s my take.
it’s the ipettie tritone fountain–it doesn’t accumulate bacteria as quickly and grossly as plastic did (and also it looks good) so i’ve been enjoying it so far
