A BIT ABOUT ME

  • My name is Patricia or Pati (it’s sweeter). She/Her.
  • Turned 23 last November, such a powerful Fire Rat.
  • Intersectional feminist, queer and pansexual.
  • Completely Latina, Ecuadorian by blood, Costa Rican by place of birth.
  • I live with atopic dermatitis, IBS, anxiety and depression.
  • Half ravenclow, half slytherin
  • Brigg-Myers said I’m ENTP, an introvert with pints of socialization all over


INTERESTS

  • Art, cooking, baking and animals.
  • I love languages and studying about different cultures. I am fluent in Spanish (native) and English, currently learning German and Korean. I have an special interest in Etymology, rules of language and grammar.
  • My pets WILL appear in this studyblr; I love them and they help me a lot, they shower me with love all the time and I want to shower them back with love. (My kitten Frida Sophia is the one in the title)
  • Learning about politics, because:

If you are neutral in situations of injustice you have chosen the side of the oppressor” 

                                                                                                     Desmond Tutu

  • Reading (fantasy, supernatural, mistery, fanfics, …).
  • Opening a hundred tabs and reading only a few, then bookmarking the rest for later.
  • I love meeting new people and talking, so hit up my inbox, anon or not.
  • I love TV Shows that deal with: fantasy, mystery and supernatural, History and random stuff, some PBS Specials, deeper stuff in life, and some comedy. I do talk about a lot of these in my side blogs


ACADEMICS

  • Finished my bachelor in Electrical Engineering, in the middle of my academic masters.
  • I love creating stuff, programming, playing around with microcontrollers and stuff.
  • I’m in the middle of writing my thesis in bioinformatics, bioengineering, for my academic masters degree.
  • Again, aspiring polylingual, currently learning German and Korean.


GOALS

  • I want to meet new people, with same and different interests, making friends is nice.
  • Being sincere, I am in a valley of depression at the moment, but can’t afford to stop, so I really need to be functional at the moment.
  • I am an expert procrastinator, which brings me high stress and anxiety + anxiety attacks. I want to get better and the pandemic ongoing isn’t helping, my first appointment with the therapist was cancelled because of this, so I really need something to ground me even if it gets hard, a way to improve my mental health.
  • I want to be a better student, a better polylingual and a better investigator, and overall a better human being.
  • I’ve used bullet journals since the second half of 2016, but it hasn’t been perfect or constant.
  • I want to live in brazenness, unrestrained by a sense of shame, as I’ve noticed it stops me and deprives me of experiences in life.


And lastly studyblrs that inspired me:

Me, attempting to write about the mystical relationship to the divine for a dissertation that never seems to end while having a complete mental break because how do I even say this in an academic and acceptable way to convince my poor prude director that i’m right?
BITCH IF YOU TRYNA TELL ME THAT THIS HOLY CONNAISSANCE THAT THEY’RE ENGAGING IN ON THE LITERAL LOVE-BED OF SEX-INFUSED GRASS IS SOME CHASTE ASS SHIT YOU HAVE NEVER HAD GOOD SEX.

Over the past few days I have been feeling pretty down about the amount of ‘work’ I have been doing. For example: I wanted to squeeze in 1-2 more hours of coding today, but I just didn’t have it in me. I couldn’t concentrate on the task at hand. 

But then I realized that I was only considering work that was tied to a physical product. Hours of taking notes, writing papers, coding, etc. I wasn’t counting all of the hours that I spent thinking about work or planning out projects. Once I included those hours I realized that I have actually been doing quite a bit of work!

I’m going to make a reminder in my planner that mental work is valid work. Thinking counts as work! Making plans counts as work! Taking time to sit on ideas is work! I’m doing a good job!

05|27|2020 Took a break in between meetings and writing to go for a walk. The weather has been so beautiful lately! Made decent progress on my to-do list. I took some time to catch up with two close friends of mine whom I have not spoken to in a while. Having good work-life balance is really important for my mental health. Now it’s time to continue working again. My goal is to get as much as I can done by Friday. Typically I go food shopping on Saturdays but I want to stay home and watch the NASA / SpaceX launch! So I plan to go food shopping on Friday instead.

Taking an early weekend. Will start the reading/writing process again on Sunday. For some reason Sunday is a very productive day for me!

Missing my home state today. Every summer my family rents a cabin close to the Appalachian mountains. I would wake up early and sit outside to do some writing/reading before the sun came up. We would spend the remainder of the day hiking and eating delicious food. It always inspired me to be more productive! Not sure if we will be able to do that this summer, though. I am not even sure if I will be able to go visit my family…

To make up for it, here is a photo from last summer! The cabin we stayed in was nestled into a mountainside. It was so peaceful! If you look closely you can see my dad walking one of our many dogs. So many fond memories.

I am starting a new publication today! But I need to do a lot of reading for it, since it is a theoretical review. I am used to writing research papers where the bulk of the content is focused on experiments/observations. So this is new territory for me! Wish me luck.

I have my Kindle loaded up with all of the books/papers I would like to get through today and tomorrow. I also have lots of yummy snacks (and an adorable, snuggly dog) to help me through this process.

I might take some pictures of my setup and post them here. They won’t be as aesthetically pleasing as the other posts I have been reblogging, but it’s a start. I’ll check back in if I like the pictures enough to post them!

Last week was rough. I wasn’t as productive as I could have been. I only did work on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday thru Friday went to the birds. 

I’ve been getting a lot done today, which makes me confident that this week will be a better one! Here is my to-do list and what I’ve accomplished so far: 

☑ Check and respond to emails. 

☑ Brainstorm postdoctoral funding ideas. 

☑ Post student assignment for a course I am TAing for. 

☑ Attend weekly speaker series (on Zoom). 

☑ Complete the methods, results, and discussion sections of a publication I am working on. 

I have a meeting later this afternoon that I need to attend. After the meeting I want to do some more brainstorming for postdoctoral funding ideas and look at job openings in my field. I also want to get a head start on the introduction of that publication I am working on. But it’s fine if that goes on Wednesday’s to-do list (Tuesday is my teaching day, so no hope of being research productive there). 

I always thought that my to-do list would shrink after completing the first full draft of my dissertation and that things would just kind of fall into place. But it seems like the opposite has happened. Anyone else feel the same way?
