PEAK American surrealism is the fact that they have to play the pledge of allegiance over Google Meet during my online classes in the middle of a pandemic
I got into one of my target colleges, I cleared the Indian LSAT with a 93.42 percentile.
Even though it’s my last option, I’m glad that I won’t have to drop this year

Anyone have a good online note-taking app/system for Mac/Desktop??
First day of school is officially over! I already have a chemistry assignment that’s due in a week, so I’m already on the grind hahah. All my new teachers seem incredibly nice so that’s lovely. Now I’ve written down all the homework for the week, read a bit of Ovid and I’m going to spend the rest of the evening watching The Office. Relaxing at its finest haha
🎧 - Teenage Blues (Vistas)
- Brainstorm first:
- This might sound like a lot of extra work, but brainstorming helps the decision. One way to do this is to make a mind map. In the middle, write the topic for the entire course. Then, write bubbles for every subcategory in that topic that you can think of. For every subcategory bubble, think of smaller categories that relate, until you have a web of topics that range from narrow to wide.
- Be original:
- Don’t pick something that has already been used as an example or a case study in class. If your teacher gives you a list of themes, then choose from there, but make sure it doesn’t seem like you’re just taking their ideas from class and regurgitating them on paper.
- Narrow it down by expanding further:
- The less generic your topic is, the better your paper will be. Try to find a deeper issue in the topic you want to do.
- Do some research before you settle:
- Sometimes you’ll find that you want to completely change your topic once you start doing some research. Often, writers do not end up writing the same paper they began writing. This could be because you realize that there are more scholarly sources out there for another topic, or because you’ve simply lost interest in the original one. Any of these reasons are valid and prove that doing some research right off the bat will help you.
I have a poor knowledge of the Church Fathers.
Anyone have a good intro book they like/would recommend?
Eager to learn, but I find it difficult to dive in without some background knowledge.
So I discovered the work of artist Yayoi Kusama yesterday. She’s a renowned artist who uses a lot of dots in her artwork and it inspired me to give it a try ! =D It was so fun and relaxing. Def try it and go check her work !!
More Russian revision with mi papá :)
I haven’t really put much thought into it, but it mostly goes like this:
- I get my notes from class and my textbook for a certain topic, then I compare to see what is still missing.
- Usually, I have enough time to write a more summarized/organized version of the material I need to know (although I don’t really put much effort into making them look pretty).
- Afterwards, I look through my new notes and write questions for every subtopic on a seperate piece of paper.
- I try to write down the answers to all of these questions from memory and then compare them to my notes.
- If I missed anything, I add it in a different colour so I remember it better.
- Basically, I then repeat step 4 until I remember all of the answers.
This is what I do for most of my subjects (with slight variations)!
this autumn will be the first time in many years that I won’t be going back to school.
academia has always been a big part of my identity and I’m honestly not sure how long will I last without studying anything. I might start learning a new language soon, or perhaps do some online courses. after all, education does not have to stop with leaving uni!
