Remember that time I reached out to my advisor for some, well, advising? And then nearly a week later, still no response?
Like, yes, sure, I can follow up, and I will, but UGH--
I get that we’re all busy, trust me, but why is it my job as an emerging professional/academic to track these people down? Where are my good examples?

so .. i've been thinking about getting accommodations for my dyslexia again and reframing exactly why i think i dont need them
im finally acknowledging to myself that although i have been using a thousand different coping methods to still (attempt to) move like a neurotypical person, that was not of my own volition originally. i didn't know i was dyslexic until the summer before my junior year of college.
if i had accommodations before then (i still dont btw), maybe i wouldn't have suffered through middle school and high school like i did. through college too obviously (i love learning and i love pain clearly), but if i had help then, i could've prevented a lot of the test anxiety i had (and still have--hence why i wrote a 70 page thesis over taking an 8 hour exam).
i finish exams very quickly now, mostly because i'm scared to actually take my time, and i feel like i'll mess up if i slow down. but if i had the extra time to slow down, maybe that would make life better for me, just saying.
i would love to slow down for my phd, and not hammer a thousand concepts into my brain. i know i CAN do that, but i don't want to. i've been in higher ed for six years now, and mentally it's been exhausting for long periods of time.
i want to show myself that i can still be the scholar i want to be, even if that means taking longer, being patient with myself, acknowledging my limits, not pushing past my own boundaries, and being proud to be where i am in spite of my disability.

Finished my teaching duty of this semester today 🥲
Casually talking to my students and one of them says “maybe get a PhD to teach” and I may have replied with “it’s so hard to get hired please re-consider academic career” a bit too much

Musings from weekend after scrolling Twitter:
In high school, I questioned whether I truly loved science. Now that I'm looking for opportunities outside of #academia, I realized I DO love science, information management and communication studies. I did NOT love the power dynamics, systemic discrimination & toxic #burnout culture of academia.

I love how I have to create an entire RNA seq pipeline with absolutely NO guidance from my professor. And it’s due in a week.

STEM PhD/grad blogs!
Hey y'all! Just looking for any active stem blogs of people in Grad school. I'm starting my PhD in Statistics this Fall and am looking for more blogs to follow. Please interact if you are active and reblog/post any content related to grad school. I also love grad school memes.

100 Days of Productivity | Day 6
When Rome's in ruins We are the lions Free of the coliseums In poisoned places We are anti-venom We're the beginning of the end - Young Volcanoes, Fall Out Boy
I'm proud of myself for waking up early this morning to get some studying in (even if our resident Goblin had different ideas)! It felt pretty good to be alert and fresh in a semi-quiet house while studying for once, so I think I'll try to do this more often. This semester I have a moratorium on working over the weekend, since I am very skilled at burning myself out. But since it felt good today, and I plan to work a little on my novel instead of doing uni work tomorrow, I think it'll be okay in the long run.

100 Days of Productivity | Day 5
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant. — Robert Louis Stevenson
We did it lads! We made it 5 days in!!! I'm exhausted!! Today did not go to plan - the brain fog was real, but we trudged through it. I started trying to make good notes again after reading the first couple of chapters. Its,,, really dense, but I've gotten to the point that there isn't enough room in the margins to write down my thoughts as I read any more, so it's needful to start translate this into notes.

210416// 3/100 days of productivity
let’s pretend i didn't have another breakdown over my research and phds today and instead let us enjoy my new stickers.
i get a new journal every time i start writing something and the best part about typical hardcover journals is that you can decorate the covers with the things that motivate or inspire you!
today’s focus: 9h
listening to: monsta x, flavors of love

100 Days of Productivity | Day 4
The only thing that's ever stopping me is me -Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea, Fall Out Boy
Another day, another cup of tea I may or may not have forgotten! But! It was a productive day, and the tea was not wasted! Graded 26/196 assignments (across 2 classes), plus house/farm work, and a successful meeting with one of my undergraduate mentees!
As I slowly get back into using Clockify, my hours ramp up and I remember why I started using it at all,,,, to prove to myself a) that I do, in fact, do work; and b) that I work too many hours at once.
It's basically impossible for me to accurately perceive the passage of time, so I gave up a long time ago and started using things that could do it for me. I used to count how many songs had passed since I last remembered hearing music,,, lets just say this is a lot better.

Finished my Capstone R project!
Today I finished my R Capstone project in my certificate course I am taking! I only needed help on the very last step but I am super proud I got through 90% of it without any help (this is rare for me). I'm trying to prepare myself for my grad classes this fall and I need to know R by then. I'm now in the Machine Learning section of the course and am super excited to get this skill in my toolbox. Anyone else love working in R?

I have just spent my evening writing an academic CV ready to apply for a lecture position in Forensic Linguistics in my uni. I am so tired, about halfway done and drunk a bit of whiskey. Past me was an idiot for not doing an academic CV sooner but at least I'm getting some experience. The pressure to find work is hitting me slowly now that I know how close I am to getting things done for my thesis.
Part of me is worried that it's not worth me applying because it's Forensic Linguistics but I did a lot of work with Forensic Linguistics in my masters, researching political speeches and a lot of my current work looks at policy as well as the link between mental health and law.

15.4.21 // (tr | en) laptopımı 1 haftanın ardından açtım, Şubat ortasından beri 200+ eposta birikmiş, öğrencilerin dönem sonu ödevlerini okumam + pzt günü teslim etmek üzere apr dokümanımı yazmam lazım ama tez danışmanım feedback olarak bir yerdeki ünlemi silmemi istemiş, 1.5 saattir silmek istemediğimi ve bunu nasıl uygun bi dille hocaya belirteceğimi düşünüyorum, bugün gerçekten akademiye de hayatıma da çok küskünüm. şu an balayında olmam lazımdı.
finally turned on my laptop after a week and went over the 200 odd emails that had been accumulating since mid February. i need to grade the LINU912 final assignments and finish up my APR document for the phd but my supervisor asked me to delete an exclamation mark somewhere in the document so OF COURSE im paralysed and thinking of ways to keep it and explain my rationale in keeping it there kindly because neurodivergence. im so frustrated @ life and academia today (more so than the usual anyway). i shouldve been on holiday now.

New coping mechanism just dropped it’s doing job interviews I know I’m not going to take because they make me more productive in my studies

I hate grind culture. I’m sitting here in my office feeling guilty for taking a few minutes before my next meeting because I’m worn out from a late night of working and getting up early to work some more.

Got my proposal rewrites done today and sent to my advisor. I’m really hoping she returns it with no other edits. I’m ready to move onto the next step of this process.
