professors keep being like “print this for class”
you think any of us own printers???
I need something to look forward to everyday so i decide to do @myhoneststudyblr ‘s challenge!
Day 1/100 - Introduce yourself and tell us what you study!
My name is Rhea and I am newly 23 years old. I’m currently getting an M.S. in Green and Environmental Chemistry. For my bachelors, I double majored in Chemistry and Environmental Earth Sciences with a minor in Environmental Studies!
yo what the FUCK is up with the mysterious Voynach manuscript? some good old fifteenth century person decided to just screw with people and made a 250 page book full of fake plants and a fake language just to fuck with people and make money? and it is still scamming people hundreds of years later?
So my head thesis advisor called my working outline “fantastic” so i’m…over the moon??
Drinking iced coffee in my dimly lit livingroom at midnight because I am beyond unfocused and attempting to write a paper.
i loved my research supervisor a lot because she was incredible and encouraging and so smart, but one of my favourite stories about her actually was with a friend of mine who also was researching under her. his dissertation was on white supremacists in america and the way they’re radicalised, and he was having trouble thinking through access to groups in order for him to interview people.
and my supervisor, who was very irish, said “well, just create a fake online account and do it that way.” and my very american classmate was like “uh, absolutely not” and she was like “why not? we can write your methodology so it’s fine ethically” and he was like “no, i don’t care about that but i’m pretty sure i’d be put on a watch list for the fbi for the REST OF MY LIFE,” to which she went “ohhhhhh. yeah i forgot that they do that in the united states. here we just let them into office” and laughed very hard. i adored her.
Idk who will even know what I’m talking about, but it’s absolutely too late to be reading analyses of set theory. Bold of me to assume I can comprehend anything right now.
Just lost my discussion paper for my Marketing class… It was 95% done. I see microsoft word has gotten no better since my undergrad many moons ago.
100 days of productivity - day 38
September 30, 2020
Another work day, which means research and writing in my downtime! Since I don’t have a pic, please enjoy this photo I took in Copenhagen ✌🏾
I don’t wanna study radiology
*drags hands down face*
just wanna be whiny and play videogames tonight
I have been trying to read this history of population genetics paper for 87 years.
I wish I was doing my masters degree in getting stoned and watching the 1982 film flight of the dragons
Behold all the children I have raised after last week’s contamination which followed with a huge mental breakdown
I have all 3 recommenders I need. Y’all I might actually go to grad school
i really just feel so out of control and overwhelmed right now. for 6 months the world was turned off and now it’s like we are all expected to put the same amount back on our plate that was there before march. grad school, working two jobs, being in a relationship, family, are all things that i need to re-learn how to juggle. and my PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder) is currently telling me that i can’t handle any of it. PMDD is so insidious. one week you feel capable, the next week you are scattered, sensitive, flailing. and i have never been clinically diagnosed with it, but i feel like i must have a slight case. i feel so deeply for people who have more serious cases than i do. i just need to push through these really challenging days until i get my period and re-stabilize. it’s just so damn hard.
