Month Meme - Day 23

Tags: ,
Ganked this from mrstater. Would love to see more people do it, if you've got any time at all!

Day 23: Three achievements you’re proud of
1) I'm proud of my smarts. Specific achievements would be the two BAs and MA I've already earned and the PhD I will someday finish. I guess the latter doesn't actually count yet, but I've completed my coursework, passed my comprehensive exams, etc. and I would bloody well hope that counts for something.

2) Becoming more aware of others, I suppose could be a broad way of putting number two. At some point in graduate school I feel I finally learned to really try to think about the world from the PoV of other people who don't have my experiences. This is not coincidentally the same point when I became a self-identified liberal progressive and more aware of and vocal about my feminism, a general concern for social justice, my antipathy toward organized religion in particular, etc.

3) I really don't know about a third. Everything else is piddly compared to those two. I was proud when I learned to ride the motorcycle. I'm proud of my dancing. Stuff like that.
