Cleaning out my email inbox again. Starting size: 1463 emails. Let’s see if I can finish by midnight, eh?
I just laughed too hard at this.
I wonder if any of my artist friends can relate to this. What’s that? ALL of you do? Hm. Indeed.
Treating an intro level psych course like it’s an upper level seminar means I’m getting a lot more out of it. Plus I now have all the study/learning techniques and background knowledge to do so.
I can’t wait till I’m done with college.
Mostly because I HATE schedules that constantly change.
Tried-and-true pomodoro timer to limit myself to 25 minutes of work, 5 minute break cycles? I just get distracted during the work time.
Block all distracting websites? I just a) go on the ipad instead, or b) get absolutely nothing done until the block is over, and THEN browse the distracting sites.
Dubstep or other music that usually helps? Still not working.
My grad school essays are due in like TWO DAYS!
Part of my response to a question on a grad school app about my “reference group”- people in my life who are important to me and about whose feelings and opinions I care:
I have two best friends, one from middle/high school, and one from college. They both are very rational people, so I know they will advise me on a situation from a neutral point of view. They are also both very honest, so I count on them to tell me their opinion truthfully, even if it is hard to hear. At the same time, however, they are nonjudgmental, so they have always supported me without hesitation. Many a time, this has brought me through major obstacles in my life, when they shared opinions that others would not dare to voice, then were available to help me through the tough realizations that followed.
So, the power shorted or something at my house while we were out. When I came back and tried to turn on my overhead light, it just did this. It’s not as fun as it sounds, I don’t WANT a strobe light rave 24/7, sometimes I just want to get dressed in matching clothing and not trip.
I HAVE WAITED ALL YEAR TO POST THIS
I wish I weren’t afraid of professors… then maybe I would have someone to ask for a letter of recommendation.
I am so scared that I am totally fucked for grad school.
On the bright side, I got an A in physics!! Even though numerically, I shouldn’t have. I was like a point or two off. Hooray for nice teachers :)
