I feel grateful today. I get to write. I get to play with ideas. I get to have a job where for the most part, I come and go as I please. I get to work with really, really smart people. I am really, really privileged.
Of course, the life of an academic is not all fun and games, and I am frequently not connected to this sense of privilege. I suspect you have moments when you do not feel privileged and grateful as well. For today's challenge, spend a few minutes writing about those hidden privileges of our work that we take for granted during the day grind.
