Why do I need to know French and German in order to get accepted to a Religious Studies grad program? I have no idea, but am I really about to teach myself 2 new languages for the next 2+ years just to apply to grad schools? Yes, yes I am.

Hopefully this should keep me on track a little! I find it really confusing sometimes to know which modules I’ve finished making notes for and which I haven’t even started so hopefully this helps. (And hopefully it’ll look a little more full soon!)

today was the start of my summer research internship program as a McNair Scholar! whoop whoop! today we just did some introductions, went through the welcome powerpoint with all the learning outcomes + such, and then went into depth on the do’s and don’ts of a statement of purpose, as well as how to structure it, etc. honestly, this gave me lots to consider for my Princeton visitation statement, so I plan on going back to edit that in the next couple days. this also makes me feel more prepared to start writing my first draft of an official statement of purpose for my top grad program.

this summer is going to be one of academic development to say the least. i’m really glad that i have a supportive community (here and in real life) to help me through this untraveled terrain i’m in. will be tagging things related to summer with “#summer 2020″ and things related to grad apps as “#alexi does grad apps”! here’s to the official [blog start] of my grad school journey

i am literally so close to completing my last anthropology course of this semester, i only have to finish the final assignment now! this one course has been honestly so tough for me for multiple reasons: the topic (biological anthropology) is really hard imo, mainly because i suck at biology. also online studying for this course has been an absolute nightmare bcs the lecturers didn’t give us the actual lectures most of the time. and lastly, my own mental health hasn’t been the best for the past months and i’ve been so low on motivation that i’ve just found studying really hard. so altogether it’s safe to say that this was my hardest course in uni so far but i’ve almost made it!!! (the pictures are totally unrelated to this caption lol i just wanted to rant about this course. but yeah i’ve been reading lots lately and also taking walks in the nature and i love it sm)

This week’s spread! I wanted to try something more minimalist this week because I think it helps me to keep more focused on what I actually need to do. Do you prefer minimalist or more intricate spreads?

alright, so today its 102 degrees F and I have work from 2-8pm. lets pray they don’t leave me to die outside. The end of the month is nearing, which means I need to finalize my list soon! I have 6 programs on my list and I need 7 for McNair so time to dig a little deeper and see what else I can find. I made a list of summer things to do to keep me busy/entertained and im looking forward to completing them. one goal is to rewatch all the star wars movies and some of them are painfully dry, but i need a cultural reset lol.

finished my first draft of princeton SoP, now im just waiting for feedback! the deadline for the application is june 15 and then decisions come out in july. im hoping for the best, it’d be really cool to go visit.

lastly, i have some cool posts coming up!! stay tuuuuuned

25.05.20 | 2020 Quarantine Challenge

Week 10 Tuesday: Do you speak any other languages? Are you currently learning any?

I don’t really know what my native language is any more. We speak English at home, seasoned with a whole cast of Chinese dialects. I also studied Japanese for 6 years in school, but it’s so rusty now. I’m currently teaching myself Italian and the results vary.

This morning was so lovely and sunny that I took my tuna sandwich outside for breakfast. Look at how pretty these maple trees were on my daily Pokemon Go walk. The wonders of having a regular sleep cycle.

I have my finals coming up in six days and I’m very nervous, especially since this is going to be my first time giving an online exam. Just began revising positive psychology. Not really a fan of the subject, but gotta power through somehow. I’ve got my cup of steaming hot frothy filter coffee to help me get through this. Hope all of you are having a great day! xx

PS: I’m new to the studyblr community and I absolutely love the energy and inspiration here!

Idk about y'all, but I’m not bougie enough to have a work space or desk at home. For me, and countless other students, COVID-19 meant getting kicked out of on-campus housing and losing our dorms, desks, libraries, and all usual study spaces.

In my parents’ home, I have a bed. That’s all the furniture I have. It’s a global pandemic and sacrifices have to be made, so we’ll make it work. One setback can’t stop me from pursuing my dreams.

Study tip for students in a similar position: light a candle. If you can’t have a separate space for study, trick your brain into perceiving it as different. Make it smell like Macintosh Apples or Warm Campfire!
