It's weird being diagnosed with autism at age 22. I've been "weird" and "not normal" my entire life and many people have told me so or made fun of me because of it. but now my doctor says it's a medical condition so I feel like I've been given permission to be myself. It's like every time someone says something I do is weird I can just be like "oh yeah I actually have a note from my doctor saying I'm allowed to be weird."
I had five hours of class and then I managed about two hours of studying ochem, I am a little behind on assigned readings but nothing a couple more hours of studying in the weekend can't fix, then I had to work and in the evening I also worked out.
Hello everyone, I am starting a new productivity challenge cause the last month I been feeling kinda numb and a unproductive. The point of this studyblr is to motivate me, hold me accountable and only rebloging pretty content doesn't do it for me. Hope you are safe and healthy!!! <3
Being left-handed sucks when it comes to hand-written notes. I know this struggle for 20 years of my existence (okay, not exactly for 20 years, but you know what I mean). All over my notes, you would find smudges and smears. Maybe this is the reason why I suck at calligraphy :D
Yesterday, I felt a bit exhausted. The school, exams, family situation, it all overwhelmed me yesterday and that’s why I didn’t post. I am sorry.
Today was a bit better, but for change, my brain decided to give me a headache. Even though I took a pill, it still hurt. I hope it won’t disturb my sleeping.
About the inky pinkie - my biology notes were too chaotic and unorganized so I decided to slowly start revising and rewriting them. I must say I did pretty well today. I revised 12 pages! Evolution and physiology of animals. On Monday, I plan to start genetics. Part of biology I am a bit undecided whether I like it or hate it :D
Tomorrow is the funeral of Prince Phillip. I heard it will be streamed, so I will watch it afternoon. I didn’t register him, or basically the whole royal family of the UK until the Crown (shame on me!) I really hope the Queen is doing as well as it is possible for a woman who lost her long lasting love. Their love was very inspiring.
i just started using forest app, and i already feel so much more productive, so if anyone needs a referral code, please use mine! That way i can also add you as friends and we can plant trees together ✨
What university should be: learning useful new stuff
What university is: decoding the cyllabus, writing emails, reading the same shit over and over again because it is in the ✨exam✨, being told one of the readings you did was just a "fun introduction to the topic" (it was Tolstoy), writing the same email but differently phrased because it was misinterpreted, panic, coaching friends through the panic, slashing the tires of your group project partners, getting As in courses you know will never matter, failing the courses in your prefered field, psychoanalyzing professors to know what they mean, imposter syndrome, wondering whether you should email again or just call, putting footnotes in your papers for three days straight, crying, summarizing a two-hour lecture into a single page "point", agonizing over future employment and yes indeed, learning new stuff
A pretty slow day today. As you can see, I started reading through the section on neurohormone secretion in my copy of Yost's Cellular Physiology, and updated my grades in my academic tracker/bujo.
I also booked a place on an open day about funding for master's degrees & master's funding and prepared a few Quizlet sets for tomorrow. It doesn't feel like enough, but what is university if not academic impostor syndrome persevering, I guess.
I feel like the app is making fun of me, one hard-studying person :D
Today I had the last physics lecture of the summer semester. It’s such a relief. But I must admit, today’s topic was interesting - radioactivity. We used to study that topic on chemistry lesson, but it’s also important to understand the physics behind that. It was probably the first time in my life I kept my mouth open at physics :D
Okay, for now, I still have to revise basics of animal physiology, so I can start zoology quiz tonight. I sometimes wonder why do I need to know how does a mosquito breathe to get accepted to medical school. (but you know, mosquitos, plasmodium malariae... I guess it has to do something with medicine :D)
