You Must Read This

Finally, a more famous than I data nerd tells the truth.
Instead of learning, I was spending 2-3 hours a day mindlessly scrolling through Facebook looking at cat videos and political hate speech. I was also posting family pictures of our adventures and eagerly awaiting the dopamine reward of getting likes from friends and family. My attention span was getting shorter and shorter by the day.

Now, lo those many decades ago, one of my graduate profs noted that you'll know you're working a profession when you spend 80% of your time thinking. And the greatest asset you acquire while a grad student is your library. Not so much these days.
