25.10.21// done some phd research in the morning and practiced norwegian before classes :) During my break, i sat outside and read finnegans wake + some articles about it for my psychoanalysis seminar! i love the autumnal weather so much!!!!
also, some people asked under my previous posts why i’m actually learning norwegian - i actually started for fun when i was like 14 and then actually started to learning it more intensively because of my research project!

26.10.21// this is the last few weeks of sunflowers and I fully intend to enjoy them 🌻 I graduate from my masters officially this weekend as well. The whole experience has been incredibly underwhelming. I think I'll treat myself to a nice bottle of prosecco and spend some time with my family 🍾 IG: flatneedledistillery

27/10/2021 // Teaching my first class ever
Last week, I was assisting my friend/professor (this order, because he's my best friend, we met before we started being at the same uni). This week, I'm teaching the basics of academic work (how to cite, what google scholar is) to freshmen. They're such babies and they're afraid of me, which I find super cute, as I'm a tiny girl who looks the same age as they do. It's a blast!

When Edward Wilson was seven years old, he suffered a fishing accident that blinded his right eye and left him with permanent 20/10 vision. Young Edward had lost his stereoscopic vision, and as a result he had a much easier time seeing small, close objects than he did things far away. Because he could see them better than anything else, Edward began to really focus on the little things around him. He became fascinated with the ants and butterflies that other kids failed to notice. This fascination for those little things eventually led to Wilson becoming the worlds leading expert in myrmecology, or the study of ants. He’s also been called “The 21st century Darwin” for his vast influence on the field of biology and it’s hard to even articulate how much he has done for the sciences in his lifetime.
Joan Procter had a chronic illness that often kept her home from school, where she would spend her time with her many pet reptiles. Unable to attend college due to her illness, she studied herpetology from her home and cultivated her knowledge of reptiles to the point where she became THE expert in reptile husbandry. She knew her shit so well that she (a disabled woman in 1923!) was named curator of reptiles at the London Zoo, where her work revolutionized the field of herpetology. If you’re like me and head straight to the reptile house as soon as you get to any zoo, you can thank our patron saint of lizards Joan Procter for building the science that made captive reptile exhibits possible!
Jack Horner had tremendous trouble in school as a kid, and he was eventually diagnosed with dyslexia as an adult. Although he had enrolled in college to study paleontology, he was unable to finish his undergraduate studies due to his struggles with dyslexia. However, Horner credits his dyslexia with giving him the superior spatial skills and uncanny grasp on “big-picture” concepts that allowed him to pursue his own path to eventually become one of the most famous paleontologists on the planet. He was the inspiration for the character Alan Grant in Jurassic Park! I was also a dyslexic dino-obsessed kid and my mom blew my mind by telling me the story of Jack Horner when we watched Jurassic park together. Certainly, my dyslexia has made graduate school immensely challenging, but it’s also given me a slightly different perspective on biology and medicine that I’ve really come to value.
This is all to say that no matter what your disability looks like, there is not only ample room for you in the field of biology, but also a desperate need for your unique perspective and abilities. Millions of human minds thinking and seeing in different ways is what has been turning the wheels of science for hundreds of years, and that’s why it’s just baffling to me that anyone would try to deny those with different perspectives a seat at the table.

i can not and i mean i can not stress this enough... make a bibliography as you do your research. i mean, make a fully formed, correctly cited bibliography as you work. just do it. i know i know you’re being lazy or you hate making citations or you’ll just get to it later or you don’t want to get distracted etc etc etc
whatever your reasons just make the fuckin bibliography
and while im at it... put the footnotes in properly as you are writing. just... do it. for future you. please. for your sanity. do it.

grad school really is like: i am the smartest person in this seminar. i am the biggest imposter in the world and have no idea why i signed up to do this for half a decade. i love academia. i hate sending emails. grading papers is hell. writing papers is hell. i love writing. i hate writing. i am overcaffeinated. i am dropping out and moving off the grid. i hate theory. i have to write a book. i am going to get a tenure track position. i love sending emails. i haven’t slept in weeks. i am a genius in my field. i am going through a full mental breakdown. i love school.  i have no idea what epistemology is

26.10.21// my motivation truly is nonexistent at this point, but i really have no other choice than to be productive so.... done a bit of my ra job and norwegian vocabulary in the morning, then prepared the classes i teach this week and brainstormed a bit for my phd expose while reading lacan and adorno (THE worst combination, trust me). 
also, i’ve had my first therapy appointment today and it went super well!
ft. my fav artwork from an exhibition i’ve visited recently!
