my own writing and PhD research.
Any plans to enter a PhD program in the near to midterm? Would you apply from Korea or take a breather between the two?

i'm honestly hoping the next year will help me figure it out. disruption to routine and rhythm, sort of thing.

i have enough money saved from this last year's endless lockdown/bf2s shitposting to do another 1-year masters, which i'm half-considering at this point.

i'm basically taking a breather from korea onwards, working freelance rather than salaried/permanent contract. hoping to have enough time almost immediately after getting out there to write, think, research, etc.

i feel like half the posters here could probably do a PhD at this point just from their D&ST careers alone.

Well I certainly could, you should have no trouble - need to start constructing some rational arguments though.

theses need things called citations, not 'look outside, dur, it's nature, everything conforms to my precept'.

Rearranged all of my non-fiction books on one shelf by theme. +1 if you can guess at least a little of how I organized it.

I only looked for about 5 seconds, but at first glance is it chronological by subject matter, roughly?

Yup. Top shelf is European history put in chronological order. Bottom left is philosophy, biographies, essays, and political pieces. Bottom right is religion/middle eastern history.

Sometimes it's nice not having to share your bookshelf with other book people so you can categorize it the way you want. Such a relief not being strictly by author, man.

staff at the new yorker unionized.

it's kind of grim to see an august and respected publication air its dirty laundry like this. but fairly indicative. anyone would think that working for an internationally respected condé-nast publication would be the apex of a career. the industry is fucked.

I pay I think $150/year for a subscription.

They had a really good article the other day exploring why covid deaths in the global south are exponentially lower than in highly developed countries. Good read.

they make a tonne of money. the main magazine editor (now david remnick) makes about $2 million a year.

with the top magazines and publishing houses it all comes down to 'you can't eat prestige'.
