I like how the style sheet for term papers for the department says to avoid Schachtelsätze when proper grammar occasionally demands them. I’m sorry, would you like me to only use simple sentences or perhaps use approximately 16 oxen-cart of participles? Honestly, I feel like having a Nebensatz or three is a lot easier to understand than long-ass participial constructions

Set a timer for 26 minutes (my Pomodoro default) and just write down everything that’s on my brain, distractions and all. Begin with just 5 minutes of writing if this seems daunting.

Day 7 of read at least one page a day everyday for 14 days:
Guess who barely managed to begin reading a page today? Yours truly. Ended up reading 3 pages. No notes again. So I have now piled three day's worth of study notes on my to-do list. Why am I like this? Also, the name of this challenge is awfully long.

I would like someone to tell me if English graduate is worth anything. Masters? No funding, but “”required”” on a lot of job apps and really only for a salary about 15k more than I have now.... PhD? Fully funded but hard af to get into and.... only seems relevant if you want to be a professor??? And I DoNot. Why??? Is like this???

I’m super quiet these days and it’s mostly because I’m in the last couple of weeks (after this coming week 2 weeks left) of my semester so like every other student in Korea I’m scrambling to get the mountains of work done before final week. In my case my research projects, cognitive behavioral therapy analysis, and 2 other reports. So I’ve been steadily working and I don’t really think to stop to take a pic for the gram hahaha. I’m also running on little sleep/energy. Idk what my grades will look like this semester but I’m glad it’s almost done! Summer I still have work to do sadly but besides Korean classes and work in my assistant job. I won’t have any classes to go to so I can work on my own schedule. I’m making a few plans to just rest but nothing special since I can’t travel and I hate summer. Anyone have any exciting summer plans? Also good luck to everyone finishing up the semester or school year

Museum Life 15/5
So I found one of my High School friends on OKCupid that I lost contact with almost ten years ago and yes, I did swipe right and lead with “Hey IDK if you remember me but we were friends and then you moved to Singapore.”
Now two months later she finally got to my profile and messaged back and we are catching up like crazy.

It’s in stories of lived experiences that we understand a late GRE might not have been due to "lack of planning", but due financial situations that were already mitigated at full effort. It’s hard to understand how something as small as $25 could have been the final straw.

Day 6 of read at least one page a day for 14 days challenge:
Managed to study 4 pages. Didn't feel like note taking. Also no matter how enticing spotify study playlists are, they are not for mind wanderers like me.

I realized that when I teach people cell culture I’m like “this is the way you should do it... but this is what we do” and I just realized that probably confuses the hell out of them lol

I am exactly 1 week behind accd to my new schedule, but all I have left is writing my conclusion then editing and I am done with this term paper. I even already have the bibliography page finished because I hate doing them and thought I’d treat myself by getting it done early. I should have the conclusion done by tomorrow or Tuesday, and I can email the professor on Wednesday (the day I had planned to turn it in accd to the new schedule) to let her know I’m just in the final editing process! Who knows, maybe I’ll actually be done with editing by then, but I’d rather give myself extra time to edit and make sure it looks good. I’m so grateful to have a professor who is understanding and supportive of me. Everyone deserves professors like her.

broke: haha linhardt is so relatable bc he’s always tired!!
woke: linhardt von hevrig exemplifies the struggle of living in a society where one’s skills are used for “productivity” at the expense of personal enjoyment. his refusal to monetize his passion is a near-radical stance. many other characters challenging it in their supports with him, only for the resounding conclusion to be “that’s just how he is”. they accept this. linhardt is an anti-capitalist power fantasy where the world can change to let us do what we want and our work is for our own knowledge. linhardt is not tired because he has a “weak constitution”. linhardt is tired of the system, and we recognize that.

Discovering Focus To-Do really made difference - you can set both breaks and pomodoros to autostart, with a bell that signals each beginning and end.
