Gazed deeply into the abyss

Category: Academic,Humor — Biella @ 4:56 pm

Someone by the name of “lobster” described my recent work in terms of its potential and damaging psychological effects (on me):

As for Ms. Coleman, I appreciate the work she’s doing but I would not want to be locked in a room with her. She has gazed deeply into the abyss. Who knows what horrors have taken root in her mind, and lie sleeping, waiting to unleash unfathomable nightmares for the lulz?

(Yes I loled; captures beautifully a bit of the trauma that can ensue from working on the abyss)

  2. Remember if you gaze for long into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you :)
