Pressing J while looking at a Tumblr blog or home feed will scroll up on the page, pressing K will scroll down. This is helpful considering a lot of the Tumblrs feature infinite scrolling.

Here’s a gentle reminder to fit in some self-care around your studies.
Listen to your body’s needs and see if there’s anything you need to do, even if it’s just sitting more comfortably.
Take any meds that you need to take, or make you sure you’ve got some kind of reminder if you need to take them later.
Pay attention to any signs of burnout like feeling irritable or worn out, losing focus, or just generally feeling “off”.
Take regular breaks when you can, even if it’s just a quick break to get up and walk around a bit, or to do some stretches or something. I know sometimes you have to do big study sessions and taking breaks can be really difficult, but even if it’s just a few minutes, it’s better than nothing.
See if there are any ways to make studying easier. Use accessibility tools if you need to (even if you’re not disabled), and try different ways of doing things if the methods you’re currently using aren’t working very well.
Do what you need to do to make things easier for yourself. You’re doing amazing

In case you were wondering, I'm very stressed. All I want is a nap, or some time to blankly stare at a wall and not worry about everything. Instead, we're writing an essay and revising a lesson plan and trying not to cry I guess.
Tumblr media
Yes, that is (another) outline taped to my wall... Finals are at the beginning of May, and I wish I could say I can't wait but I have a lot to do before then and a lot to do after. I got an email over the weekend that my department's going to give me an award so I guess that's cool.
I hope everything's going well in your lives, and don't forget to take care of yourselves as we edge closer to summer.

I’m just really excited about the rainbow coming from my window today
It’s been a tough few weeks. Because my school isn’t giving us breaks I’m feeling very drained and like I can’t catch up. Hopefully posting again and being more active in the community will help, though!

I feel like my to do list isn't getting any shorter this week???

Also, got (the first dose of) my COVID vaccine yesterday--so far, my arm aches a little, but nothing too awful. As a young healthy person, I feel a little gross being able to get it when there are other people out there who won't have access to one for ages, but I also live in an anti-mask city, so I know a lot of people around here aren't being COVID safe and likely won't get vaccinated. So I guess I'm doing my part for this community of assholes and protecting myself--and also making sure I'm fully vaccinated in time for camp and (hopefully) my study abroad next year. Stay safe!

Today it rained and I made a spreadsheet for organisational purposes... And tbh not much else happened. I need to scan some stuff so I can write on it, but I'm too lazy to try to get my printer to do it and my phone camera's too bad to take photos/scan to pdf, so I'll put it off until at least tomorrow.

Happy April--and, if you celebrate, happy Easter, too! I've been loving the warm weather this weekend (we took our puppy down to the river for a swim today), but I'm also super excited for the rain we're supposed to get a little of this week!

I was so busy last week my brain's still fried but I got my stuff done and this week one of my classes is cancelled so we can work on writing our final essays, which I'm thankful for because this weekend was a total loss for work. 🤷

I repotted one of my plants into this very pretty pot my mother lent me

Also I have so much to do... Readings (and an annotated bibliography of them), prepping for teaching my activity tomorrow, and I haven't even looked at what I need to do for my class tomorrow evening... Wish me luck!

Hi I've been struggling but I think I've figured most of it out (at least what I'm able to) and now I just have to get it all done...
Tumblr media

I sent out three emails this morning to various people and I got responses back within like half an hour from all of them and now I feel bad about my habit of not replying to things for days...

I love my advisor, who finally got back to me about my email and has given me some comments on my essay and honours proposal. In other news, I'm trying to decide if reading Adam Bede would be good for my project or not...

Also I finally got around to updating my reading journal--Beloved was the last book we read for my senior seminar, and it was very good. And it nearly got me into an argument about the function and goals of Gothic literature...

Happy St Patrick's Day! And here's a reminder to reach out to people you love but haven't spoken to recently--because I have a couple Irish friends whom I love but I haven't spoken to recently and I miss them.
Tumblr media
Today I made this lemon cake and didn't get much else done tbh. I have to figure out a topic for my senior seminar paper by next week, so if you need me I'll be freaking out about that

Does anybody have any advice for writing project proposals/timelines? I'm struggling with writing my honours project proposal--tbh I should probably have a meeting with my advisor lol... It's definitely not helping that I'm struggling to come up with my senior sem topic at the same time.

I made lemon poppyseed muffins yesterday with Girl Scout cookie topping that I'm enjoying to celebrate the first spring rainy day

I've been doing a lot of database searching trying to find sources to include on my working bibliography for my honours project proposal, on top of my readings for class, my first TEFL teaching today, and freaking out about trying to come up with a senior seminar project topic... Hence the massive mug of coffee this afternoon

Happy International Women's Day!!! If you're not a feminist, get off my blog.

Today I looked over an essay I really need to spend some time with, as well as having a couple meetings, taking a midterm quiz, and reading Beloved. It's going to be a long week, and I realised my honours project application is due at the end of the month, so actually it'll be a long month too.

"yikes" and "yike" have different vibes but appear frequently
lots of "lol" and "yes!" and "yeet" and just "!!"
"communication!" and "snake" or "bitch," about characters
and my favourite (recent) note to author, "Margaret "I'm not racist" Mitchell," on a particularly gross page of Gone With the Wind
Yes sure I annotate my books, that doesn’t mean it’s anything smart?? See all those things in the margins?? All dumb shit. Things like “lol” “oof” “same bro” I annotate my books like I tweet and y'all have no right to expect anything from me

I'm feeling pretty burnt out right now, in part because I suddenly got a job that takes up the days that I've had free all year :( it should go through the rest of the month, but it's basically a lot of sitting around, so maybe I can get some reading done or something
Tumblr media
Anyway, happy March! I have so much to do my spreads are pretty minimal this month

Yesterday my teaching writing professor said something that just really stuck out to me as a goof worldview for everything, but I'm especially keeping it in mind as I study today:

Someone in my yoga class asked to work on "opening up hips" and here's a piece of unsolicited life advice: don't ask dance or yoga instructors to work on hips, because it's a whole new level

Working on my lesson plan--modal verbs could be the end of me.
Tumblr media
I unexpectedly got to catch up with one of my best friends from high school today, and I met her boyfriend (she's had some questionable taste, but I actually really liked him). So that was really nice, but now I should buckle down and get to work on all the things I have to do for Monday... even if I'd rather not

Pajamas and a good book to keep my mind off of all the things I haven't done and the class discussion I'm worrying about? Yes please
