I think a lot what I want from an adviser could be covered in a professional development class and/or scientific writing class etc, but the intangibles of having a supportive adviser can really vary person to person depending on what they need. Maybe a “how to be a mentor” class?

Great questions! If it would be helpful, I made a document with the same idea in mind, please feel free to share it to anyone you may like to (first link under “questions to ask before grad school”):

Instead of hate let me say I am wary of them. I joined Theta Pi Sigma in college, an all gender Greek org. Since then I have tried to use gendered pronouns only when I know the person’s pronouns. I still mess up, but for me it’s easier to use non-gendered terms in general.

After getting married recently I tried to use husband but I hate gendered terms so I stick with partner. Did any of that help pinpoint the irritation? 2/2

Awesome! Ok so I started using it back in high school because I was in a gay-straight alliance and I learned that some people who identify as LGBTQ+ weren’t freely able to refer to a girlfriend or boyfriend, and I started doing it in solidarity (this was early-mid 2000s). 1/2

Would me telling you why I use those words be helpful, or irritating?

We got a new toy today, so to celebrate the end of the semester and cleaning our lab, we blew off some steam, with some goalie action and with the skills! Haven’t laughed this hard in a while 🤣

Awesome! Yeah, being a TA is great because we don’t have to come up with all the material, but then we also don’t have control over our classrooms.

I’ve told my students before what I’m responsible for and what the lecturer/lab coordinator is responsible for which has helped my reviews. I’ve also given them examples of useful comments (this specific thing worked/didn’t work for me) and useless ones (I hate your music).
