Wednesday 30th September, week 2 of college

it’s the middle of week 2 and I already feel so far behind! I’m working a lot because we’re rejigging the roster so I’m covering a lot of little shifts - good for monies, bad for productivity.

I had my first face-to-face lab today - I only have 6 in total - which was a very strange experience. it was a veterinary public health lab about the microbiological examination of fresh meat which freaked me out a little bit. the sample we had looked so normal but it was not acceptable in terms of microbe growth!

my new planner is super duper cute and it has lots of room for checklists which is v important for me! I got it from PlumPaper and I’m thrilled with it. 

the rest of today will consist of

  • work
  • finishing this paper
  • a walk with my houndies
  • a workout
  • finishing my ruminant urology 1 lecture

I have missed my little Tumblr community! I love that I always have this space to hold myself accountable with no judgement. stay golden!

love always xx

Finished all the readings for my English class this semester! Now all I have to do is go bad whenever I need to submit an annotation or write a summary. The time consuming bit is done! I may work on our other book as well, even though he hasn’t written the rest of that book on the syllabus. Can’t hurt, and the reading is light.

Will absolutely be treating myself to a KitKat tomorrow as a celebration 😉

september 29th, 2020 - 18/100 days of productivity

today i had a online lecture for criminology. as it’s still welcome week the meetings are mainly just introductory bits to get us used to microsoft teams and what the course is like.

i also have been dealing with some kind of mess up from my doctor. they basically referred me to the wrong people for the wrong thing and now that i’ve moved to uni i’m not an “active patient” so they can’t help me. but i’m also not an “active patient” with the doctors at uni because i haven’t fully registered yet so they can’t help me either. it’s a big hoo ha but it needs sorting so we’ll see how that goes.

i have nothing on my timetable tomorrow so i’ll see what there is to do. i need a laundry card first and foremost. other than that, i have no tasks so maybe i’ll go out and try to photograph the squirrels.

september 28th, 2020 - 17/100 days of productivity

yesterday was my first day of online lectures. it wasn’t too bad, but it was hard to focus on what was being said because i’m in my room with lots of distractions (and people in the chat kept sending memes), but i’m sure i’ll get used to it with time.

i had a lot booked in, with an induction call from 11, a phone call at 12, a criminology talk at 1, and personal tutor meeting at 2. it wasn’t as difficult to get through as it would be if i were in a classroom, i don’t know why but time goes so much faster when you’re in an online lecture.

why did you start your studyblr?

to stop myself from procrastinating and commit to doing more productive things.

Day 8 - A photo of your to-do list

I mainly keep my to-do list in my diary. It’s a very busy (but enjoyable) week for me, particularly as I can now (COVID safe) meet up with people again!

My main priorities for this week are my general uni work, and my first meeting for my thesis today. I’m very nervous, but excited for it!

Ive mainly spent today doing readings on my bed in preparation for my meeting - wish me luck!

Thanks to @hayley-studies for the challenge idea!

got a new journal for uni as my current one wouldn’t even last for first term. what are the spreads you use most? (e.g. mood tracker, sleep, books…) looking for some inspiration

Day 4 - A photo of your most recent work

I’ve only been back at uni for a few days so far, so I don’t have all that many notes yet! So instead here’s a little bit of work I had from my last term at uni - it was a lot of work (close to double my previous term, and last term was pretty hectic too!) My main subjects were on concrete and water, and I enjoyed them both a lot!

Thanks to @hayley-studies for the challenge idea!!

Day 3 - Your favourite motivational quote

I know this isn’t particularly motivational, but I find this quote by the astronaut Chris Hadfield amazing - “there is no problem so bad you can’t make it worse.” Apparently its quite popular at NASA, and I find it helps me keep things in perspective and focus on solving each problem one at time as they arise.

Thanks to @hayley-studies for the challenge idea!!
