I’ve been in a mythology mood and y’all already know how I got here so I’ve started reading this book and it is so wonderful! I realized that I’m not actually super familiar with a lot of myths as we only briefly touched on them in middle school and my obsession also dwindled from there so I never really thought about mythology afterwards. However, these past few days, I’ve been watching videos about some of the myths and also other general ancient culture topics and it’s super fun. I absolutely love the Ted-Ed channel. Also, I’ve been listening to some of the pre-made Greek mythology playlists on YouTube and have picked up some new fave songs; at the moment, I’m in love with Apollo by Timebelle. If y’all haven’t listened to it, you’re missing out. It’s crazy that this week has already ended; I hope everything’s well on your end!! 🤍✨

My class notes since 2018. I am a traditional note taker and I love writing things down to make sure I'll remember and absorb the necessary information I need for my exams or class recitations. It feels so good to see all my notes in one photo and realize that I've explored and tried various of note taking styles throughout the years . ✨

When I was in undergrad, during my methodology class, my professor (and advisor) was asked, "How do you keep your journal articles jargon-free?" and his answer was, "After a certain level, you simply cannot, and to do so would actually make your writing bad historical writing." He then went on to compare two different articles by the same author written in a journal where undergraduates can submit, and a journal where only phd. can submit.
The difference in language was subtle but noticeable, because there is an implicit understanding that the article is written for someone who has the necessary background on the subject. The writer was able to not have to explain every concept in a journal for phd., since the readers were supposed to bring a baseline of knowledge, or know how and where to go to be educated (or who to ask). This is despite the fact that both were available via jstor.
There will always be people having conversations about things that are beyond your understandig on the topic. I do not instantly understand nuclear physics or computer science or organic chemistry, but I give credentialed people that I know aren't cranks the benefit of doubt that they know what's going on. This respect is often not extended to humanities people talking about their work because "blue curtain is just blue" people think the high school education they mostly rejected puts them on the same field of discussion as people educated on the subject. Yet, these are the people who get mad when they find that rudely interjecting into a conversation where everyone else is on the same page and saying understanding the conversation is too hard in an extremely hostile manner gets a answered with hostility.
The bottom line is, you aren't entitled to understanding everything you come across instantly. If you do not understand the conversation, it is your job to either get educated on the subject if it seems interesting enough, or move on if it seems incomprehensible and is not something you'd care about. If you enter a conversation you are not ready for, that is on you, not people bewildered at your antics.

100 Days of Productivity | Day 24
I held my last office hours for the semester today! Understandably more students than average came in. I got some nice praise and thanks from my students, and tbh thats the world to me. I love these guys so much, I'm unbelievably proud of how well they did! And I'm just the grader!
(Old screen grab from my bf's dm's because I'm too tired to do something unique. This is how I hold office hours in the world of remote classes)

... and then there are days where you just sit on the floor, change the font of your paper to comic sans, and listen to loud punkrock while trying to get at least something done.
