I know I'm so so late on this challenge, but figure better late than never! It's been a busy week.
Day 26- What has been your best zoomester experience so far?
Honestly meeting new blogs! I had no idea how many other studyblrs there are out there, and how nice they are! I always got intimidated by the community but I feel so much more welcome.
Day 27- If you’re about to graduate, what’s something that you’ll miss from school? If you aren’t about to graduate, tell us something you really love about school.
I think I'll honestly miss my professors. My first response would be to say my friends, but quite a few of them are staying here in the midwest for jobs/gap years like I am, so we'll all still get to hang out. But my professors have been fantastic and I know I'll miss them so so much.
Today was such a long day. I was not busy with classes, I studied for the usual amount of time, but something felt strange. I have no idea why I felt like that.
I finished my maths homework, studied taxonomy of protozoa and some physiology of them.
I also downloaded quizlet, so I might create some flashcard tonight.
One thing that makes me happy is that the covid situation is getting better, less patients are hospitalised, but our university already stated we will be online schooled until the end of the semester. Maybe exams will be in present form. We will see.
Also, my medschool entrance exams are aproaching, i still have 2 months left. I plan to end my biology revision by the end of the april and then do it all over again until exams. I am already getting nervous.
Made some final revisions on my presentation and précis and submitted them.

Set up my meeting for tomorrow

It’s been a little hectic today. Scratch that, a LOT hectic. I didn’t realize I needed to include the Tertiary* in my presentation too, so I threw that together last minute. It actually turned out really well tho, and I feel like I actually understand the major events.
*yea I know it’s called the paleogene and neogene now as of the conference in 2013. I’m ignoring that. I LIKE the name tertiary. And I DON’T like Breggren’s essay calling the tertiary and quaternary “inappropriate as standard chronostratigraphic [boundaries]” bc honestly EVERYTHING is an inappropriate chronostratigraphic boundary. Plus Breggren just sounds pompous as heck in the whole essay. Makes it hard to stand by his side in the argument.

Wow! It has been a month since I have posted, but let me just say that this last little bit has been incredibly draining. Recently, I have been feeling weary to my core and unwilling to complete the simplest tasks. I always start to feel run down at the end of the semester before getting a second wind that is able to carry me through finals. I have my major projects due these next couple of weeks, but I feel a lot better about completing them than I did a few days ago.
Getting out of my slump has meant simply cleaning my apartment, and taking better care of myself. If you've been feeling weary as well, know that the hardest part of getting out of it is deciding to push forward. I believe in you.
had a meeting with my professor about my paper
cleaned my apartment
read Return of The King
contacted my group about our group project
Let me know if you've been seeing any cherry blossoms blooming! They are my absolute favorite :)
It's been a busy week tbh 😑 Btw, I need your help! I recently bought a new iPad compatible with the apple pencil, and I wanted to know which apps some of you use to take notes 👀 If you know any that works just fine, pls tell me 💓
Well, this photo is older, but it’s very similar to how my dest looked today. Even though I didn’t have many lessons (2 of them were rescheduled for tomorrow and Friday), I feel a bit tired and demotivated.
I feel like I am always doing something, studying, writing notes, making flashcards and my mind never stops for a quick relax. I guess I should start meditating or something.
As I mentioned yesterday, I found website Mooclab and I already found a studybuddy. We just have to schedule some time for our first study session, but I kinda have this feeling it won’t work very well because of time zones :/ But I still have hope.
Please, do not look at the coffee stain. I promise I have already changed the tablecloth :D
For some reason completing one essay is taking a lot longer than I expected.. hoping to do it soon and then Move On(!!!) I’m slowly getting there...
In other news I’ve decided to start writing again on my blog.!!! It feels nice to feel productive and want to write again and I hope this carries on for a while !! It’s nice to be able to reflect on my week, my month and just write it out.
( I’ve definitely not the most consistent with my days of productivity but I’m getting there.... anyway can it be more than 8 degrees here .. please .. I want sun!! Also let’s ignore the handwriting.. as long as I can read it then it’s fine .. right ?!)
