Once upon a time I didn't have tumblr. Then my friends made me do it.

First Earth-size planet found in habitable zone around another star! Kepler186f is Earth-size and we understand this size very well. Previous discoveries have been at least 40% larger.

THIS THIS ALL OF THIS. Fuck all the commentators saying “it’s her fault for not knowing how to cope” First of all, you’re literally blaming someone for their mental health issues, which tend to pop up around the age most students enter college. Next, you forget that most of us have spent 18 years being indoctrinated that grades are the most important thing, and you’ve given us little to no room to fail. When I transferred colleges after my freshman year, I was convinced I would never be hired because employers would look at my resume and see that I’d made a mistake. I haven’t applied for any internships since then (study abroad programs + lab work ftw!), but the fear of not doing things the right way is a big one. And then all of a sudden you start doing research, and you get to play the “are your expectations too high, or am I really just this incompetent?” game. 

I visited MIT and didn’t like the environment, but maybe part of that was I didn’t want to be in an environment where I wasn’t one of the smartest people. It felt extremely competitive and backstabby and use the bodies of your peers to climb the ladder. Even the pranks were a competition. On the other hand, my dad got his first job because the interviewer saw he went to Cornell. Transfer away from MIT? I’m sure it would have seemed like writing “failure” on her forehead in big red letters. The indoctrination to succeed at all costs and that there is an end-goal is extremely powerful, and the feeling that if you ask for help it’s weakness or you’re deficient is absolutely toxic.
