1/25 Days of Productivity
Feeling mildly behind, online study is a real vibe, and that ‘cooped up’ feeling is growing, decided to do 25 days of productivity to give me a bit of motivation.
Today is bio (hopefully finish week 5 content), 2 lectures, and one article to read.
New to studyblr so would love to make some friends 😊😊
MIT biological engineers have created a multitissue model that lets them study the relationships between different organs and the immune system, on a specialized microfluidic platform seeded with human cells.
Using this type of model, sometimes called “organs-on-a-chip” or “physiome-on-a-chip,” the research team was able to explore the role of circulating immune cells in ulcerative colitis and other inflammatory diseases. They also discovered that a metabolic byproduct generated by bacteria living in the human gut plays an important role under these inflammatory conditions.
Nothing says sweet dreams like the plague. ☠️
The average american (AA) seems to have a certain habit
AA: Hmm. I seem to have a cold. It’s accompanied by a low-grade fever.
AA: *takes antipyretics*
AA: Damn, why am I healing so slowly?
Update: I failed out of my college program. I am now on probation. If I want to try my program again I have to apply again. My GPA dropped significantly. I have to take a blood banking class to even be considered when I apply again. I’m so lost and confused right now. I don’t even know if applying in the fall will be worth it at this point. I’m going to try to take the blood bank class if it’s offered anywhere. UC Berkeley isn’t offering it in the spring. I’m waiting to see if the community college near me is offering it in the spring. If I can’t take it in the spring then I won’t get to try again until fall 2021. I’m not even promised a spot that’s what sucks. I blew my one chance and now I don’t know what the heck will happen. Blackboard lied I was two points away from passing apparently… that doesn’t matter I guess. The whole semester blackboard hasn’t be accurate and told me something not even close to my actual grade.

While I’ve been home I’ve managed to do my laundry, work on a midterm report, hang out with my pets, visit my old high school and visit some close friends of mine, oh and I went and blocked all my exes because who the fuck needs them anymore? I’d like to think I have been productive as of late.
My name is Gabrielle. I am a Canadian student studying at the university of Ottawa. My program is Baccalauréat spécialisé des Sciences de la Santé (honours bachelor of health sciences). I am fully bilingual, obviously continuing my studies in french.
I made this account to document my time here in Ottawa, to have my own recollection of living my Dark Academia dream.
I wish to also make friends and inspire myself through this page. Therefore, feel free to PM me and we can discuss literally anything.
On that note, I must run to my next class!
So I’ve decided to do 4 years instead of three just so I’m not rushing anything and to allow myself to finish all courses of both my degrees. Yes both. I entered my current uni as an English major and added my Health Science degree once I had my place secured. I love English just too much to cast it by the way side so I decided to stick with it.
Determined to get below 170 lbs. before June arrives. At 173 lbs now. Coming down from 195 lbs.
Picking a Minor
So I want to become an Occupational Therapist and am currently getting a Health Sciences degree.
What would be a good minor to look into for that? I wanted Creative Writing but I don’t know… ;-; plz help.
Accomplishments of today
- Read 35 pages of patho
- Reviewed for my lab practical
Not a long list but still super proud! Today was a nasty dreary day(weather really effects my mood). I spent most of the day at my cousins birthday party which was great. However, when I got back I just sat around my house doing nothing. It wasn’t until 8 pm my motivation kicked in. 🙃 anyone else like this?? I get crazy productive at night or in the early hours of the morning.
Tomorrow starts my time off work aka my super productive week. I didn’t wanna go crazy over school work on my last weekend before finals. I have a list of things to accomplish tomorrow, and hopefully I can get up early to hit the gym. I have a habit of setting the alarm and then just snoozing it when it goes off. I can only get my butt to the gym in the morning. Once the afternoon rolls around I just can’t bring myself to go. I don’t like going when it’s crowded so that’s why I go early! 🤗
Hoping this weekend is super productive for everyone and you receive nothing but good vibes! ☺️✨
I’ve lost nearly 15 pounds since I’ve dieted in February. Maybe my drinking didn’t ruin my shit totally, and maybe I am able to pull this off?
I’ve been ok eating about 1000 calories a day each day lately. I did the math, and I could loose 60 pounds by fall by the deficit created by that much each day (though I did not account the effects of slowed metabolism that comes naturally with weight loss). I just hope I stick with it and realize I gotta look good for once.
Yeah…once I hit that below 180 pounds mark and get into the 170s is when I’ll feel really good. Reminds me of when I lost a lot of weight and looked almost good at 17-18 (not remembering when I gained it all back by stress eating my first year of college like a dumb fuck).
(Maybe when I lose the weight is when I do a face reveal? Tbh though the only reason I’ve been putting that off is because I don’t want some idiot to try and find me because something edgy I said pissed them off.)
