Some context for the content put forth.
I received my PhD in philosophy from a German university. I enjoy Löwith, Nietzsche and have a healthy and rewarding relationship with anyone either of the aforementioned authors shit on.
During graduate school I was also an English teacher, a bouncer, a translator, an archaeologist, a secretary, an event planner, an on-site guide for the BBC, a dish-washer, a cafe lead, a bar jockey and an awkward bi-lingual trivia night host.
My responsibility now lies in languages, translation, process management. I feel euphoria when work flows in a meaningful and logical way and get soul-crushingly offended when the opposite holds true.
