06/05/20 | “What if 2020 isn’t cancelled? What if 2020 is the year we’ve been waiting for? A year so uncomfortable, so painful, so scary so raw - that it finally forces us to grow. A year that screams so loud, finally awakening us from our ignorant slumber. A year we finally accept the need for change. Declare change. Work for change. Become the change. A year we finally band together, instead of pushing each other further apart.
2020 isn’t cancelled, but rather the most important year of them all.” - Leslie Dwight
Hello studyblr community! Posting my newly made notes about the 9 types of Intelligence! (see photo)
I know most of us feel that we are not smart enough, specially those who are still in school. But in reality, YOU ARE SMARTER THAN WHAT YOU THINK! We all possess these types of intelligence, meaning we have it ALL within us. However, it vary to a certain degree from person to person. For example, i am more of an Intra-personal and Spatial intelligent type. I’m good at understanding myself and picturing things out in my mind. But i’m also into Musical and a bit of Logical & Mathematical. What I’ve mentioned are the types that dominates in me. And by knowing what type of intelligence you possess, it can help you to effectively study. 😊 I actually had fun making these notes since it’s been a long time since the last. I miss you all A LOT! And i know that things are getting out of hands lately, be it in health, politics, relationships, etc. But i wanted you all to know that WE HAVE EACH OTHER’S BACK. So i am praying for everyone’s safety and health! And don’t forget to hydrate yourself studynerds! 🤓❤️
Due to the current events I’ve been reluctant to post to give non-white people a place to speak. Our white privilege must be used toward the protection of people of colour and we must give them, give you the chance to be heard, we have to make your voice louder. This is not black vs white. This is everyone against racists. There is a lot to do and we will go through it and came out equal.
I’ve been raised to not be racist, to help and to not stand by when I witness injustices. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen my mom and my dad intervene to protect someone. However I still have a lot to learn to be anti-racist and truly understand how I can help, support to make things change.
Please sign petitions, donate if you can, go to protests to show your support and protect people against racists. Educate yourself, educate your family, your friends, be aware of your privileges. Don’t stay silent. As the young generation, we have to make ourself heard to live in a better world.
Please be safe, the pandemic and the racism is making the life of black people even more harder. Respect people boundaries, keep social distancing as much as you can, wear a mask, and respect and love everyone. Because Black Lives Matter.
02.06.20 // 2020 is a startling mix of ‘omg it’s may already, where has the time gone?’ and ‘it’s only may…. can this year end soon?’
devastated to hear the news about george floyd… hope the african american tumblr community knows that they are deeply loved and supported. to any followers who may be of that descent, i am fully with you in this movement, and i pray for your safety and good health through these tumultuous times.
listening to: this is america - childish gambino (rather apt song for the current political climate)
I did some errands for my mom this morning and went on a run outside. It is really hot here nowadays and I didn’t drink enough water before so it was quite a painful run and a not very useful one.
I went on another run at the beginning of the afternoon but I did it on the treadmill. And now my whole body aches!
I did my duolingo lessons and finished to read On the Road by Jack Kerouac. I also made dinner and trust me, it was good!
I ordered books for my next writing project. It is a project I’ve always wanted to write and with the current events, I think now is a good time to start. Please, if you are looking for resources to know more about the Black Lives Matter movement, please read this document, it lists several resources to begin with.
Reading about behavioral effects on fish from contaminants, listening to the rain outside, and i realized im really gonna miss my cozy little set up here when i go off to grad school in the fall
Thinking about starting a grad school blog once i start up, being from miami always sorrounded by a hispanic community, i am a bit anxious about living somewhere like Delaware, hopefully my time there can provide me with some knowledge i could give to up and starting Latinx marine biologists… stay tuned!!
it’s getting sunnier and warmer, and all i want to do is spend my time reading on our terrace. i haven’t been able to order new books so i’m just rereading old favourites! do you have any book series that you just keep coming back to even after all these years? :’)
