29.10.20 - day 80? / quantum revision has made my brain permanently feel like a laptop with its fans at full speed trying its best to just deal.. anyway..

!! really excited rn because I finally sent out cold calls to some professors in the department to ask about research. It’s very surreal idk I’ve been scouring the department website for quite a while thinking of what research areas interest me (perhaps even before undergrad started), and things just became more concrete. Next semester (in 2ish months’ time) I’ll be doing a small project for some credits. and after next semester (in 6ish months’ time) I’ll be doing my final year thesis. Mad:”)

I probably should have sent one email at a time rather than three, I still have to decide what to do for the small project module among the three I’ve narrowed down   then say “sorry I took another project” to the other two professors  and atm I’m not sure if I’ll carry on with the small project/something related to it for my final year, or whether I’ll switch interests by then LOL. But I guess things will get figured out along the way! So many options so little time;; uni just happens so fast

excitement aside, speaking of so little time, studying for quantum is really draining and there’s only a few days left before the final test /screams

I guess I’ll take an early break tonight. Hopefully I can catch up over the next few days but idk we’ll see. Just gonna give it my best for the last 2 and a half weeks of the sem:”)

28.10.20 - day 79? / second last 6-hours-worth-of-zoom day of the semester? had a bit more data analysis done for my lab report, and narrowed down my list for research groups that look interesting:^) gonna send some email enquiries tomorrow to make arrangements to take the research module next semester, will also probably continue to work on the lab report. but for now, brb I’m off to force-feed myself quantum mechanics bc there’s an assignment due on sunday and the final test next wednesday:^)

{last week of october}

the mornings are freezing now, and the evenings are a bit harder to get through. autumn is strange because it’s all about endings, dying leaves and vanished memories that pop up, and the thing that’s scary about this year is how sometimes it seems nothing will replace what we’ve lost.

i scored well on my calc and linguistics midterms, though. just trying to take it one hour at a time. hope you all are doing the same. drink water and be kind to yourselves <3

Days 70-73/100:

I disappeared from social media to prepare for the interview I had today. I really hope I made a good impression. They liked my Python code, even though I’m not a computer scientist.

I hanged some lights in my room: not boring anymore.

Now I’m just extremely tired, but I still have a lot of stuff to do, especially since Germany will “close” again starting next week.

At least I hope I will be able to keep seeing my partner. Last Monday I was on the mountains with them, and they kept making fun of me because of all the extra layers I was wearing (Italians don’t agree with cold weather).

57/100 Days of Productivity

Guess who’s studying in bed again? I’m falling behind at uni work, but I’m doing my best! I hope that after this week things slow down a little bit…

I’m almost at 500 followers, thank you guys! I decided I’ll be tracking #heyalyss (or #hey alyss - as Alyss is the name I usually go in the internet). If you want me to see your post, use this tag, it would be really nice ^_^

I love this study playlist! I’m also loving oscillations, it feels like astronomy math I’ve already done. I’m feeling so much better studying again. Not doing anything for days drives me crazy. I’m cleared by my state to go back out on the 29th if I’m symptom free the 24 hours leading up to it but I’m not sure when I’m allowed back to campus but going to parks and studying sounds super fun right now. Hopefully I’ll be fully recovered by the 28th and caught up by Saturday.

26.10.20 - day 77? / can’t believe it’s been another monday? Had the e&m test this morning, one of the questions was straight out of the tutorial - and I did do that tutorial - 1 month ago - and didn’t think to look at it in detail during my revision lol a bit bummed but it’s okay I tried my best either way I guess

in other news, lecture contents are concluding, and yet another lab report is in the writing (the last one tho!) e-learning isn’t optimal but tbh I’m gonna miss this sem.. taking a module for fun, continuing with german, doing the year 3 lab module/getting to be hands-on with cool experiments, taking more (probably the last of) physics “foundation”-ish/essential modules like qm and e&m … there’s only less than three weeks to the end;;

10.25.20

{a thirty hour problem set and a weekend that vanished}

i really think sometimes that i could just do physics for days and forget the time if it weren’t for needing to feed my body and walk the neighbor’s dog.

other than that, having a bit of a hard time again but i’m just taking it step by step. let’s start this week steady and sturdy and kind to ourselves <3
