Academic balls

I was reading a history of China, then I though “nah don’t bother” and tossed it aside.

Why are so many academic books so frigidly boring? I am doing an online course in digital humanities and its dry as freaking dust.

Yet at the same time I feel like I am a kind of anthropologist.

Academia kinda pisses me off.

I went to this online seminar about ethnography and there was a HUGE Marxist subtext to the whole thing. Despite the fact most of the anthropologists earn like £80k a year salaries.

I dunno. I don’t get it.
