Having an artpop (by Lady Gaga) moment _:(´ཀ`」 ∠):
Day 2 of @myhoneststudyblr’s study challenge 💛
Have your plans changed at all because of the pandemic?
Definitely. Originally, I had lined up a grad trip abroad, but things change! I think that this period of isolation is actually a blessing in disguise because I now have absolutely no choice but to sit back and take it easy after four long years of study… and I’ll be taking it easy by studying some more! The irony is not lost on me ;)
Today, I officially finished my World History notes from my senior year class which were long overdue. Senioritis is not a joke Jim, MILLIONS OF FAMILIES SUFFER EVERY YEAR.
Currently listening to: Hamilton soundtracks over and over again
On the afternoon of December 8th, 1980, outside his apartment in New York, John Lennon was approached by an autograph hunter who silently handed him a copy of Lennon’s album, Double Fantasy, to sign. Lennon obliged. In roughly the same area just a few hours later, that same man, Mark Chapman, shot John Lennon four times in the back, killing him, and then waited for the police to arrive. Six years later, while incarcerated at Attica Correctional Facility in New York, Lennon’s killer wrote a letter to a memorabilia expert with a question:
April 10, 1986
First, I’d like you to keep this letter confidential – between us only. Thank you.
I heard you today on Andy Thomas’s BUFFALO TALKS (WWKB) and felt at least from your voice, I could write you concerning a very personal matter. I also have some random questions which will follow.
On December 8, 1980 I shot and killed John Lennon. Before this, earlier in the afternoon, I had asked him to sign his Double Fantasy album. He did this also signing the date: 1980. I then placed this album behind the security guard’s booth where it was found after my arrest. I have tried unsuccessfully for years (and 2 attorneys) to get this item back, seeking to place it at auction and donating the money to a children’s charity. I felt it was the least I could do. Now, is there any way to assess the value of an item such as this? I have often wanted to write a dealer (Charles Hamilton comes to mind) concerning this but haven’t. I guess listening to you convinced me I could trust you – I’m somewhat of a recluse.
Is there a value that could be assigned to an item like this? Is this something that could only be determined at auction? Please let me know your feelings on this.
I have an autographed Autobiography of Sophie Tucker (it’s inscribed) and was wondering if this is worth anything. There is NO dust wrapper and the condition isn’t that great.
Also, do you have any Stephen King holograph material available? What is the worth of such items?
Any J.D. Salinger letters available? I would like any holograph letters.
Could you send me any addresses of other dealers who might have any of the above items?
Thank you Kindly,

Handwriting tag game
Tagged by @njess04 Thanks for the tag!❤ You thought YOUR handwriting was ugly? Then look at mine!!😂 A schoolfriend always said that it looks like it’s screaming… And I have to admit it’s kinda true. XD
rules: handwrite A-Z, 0-9, your url, the phrase ‘the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog’, and a quote!
I’m thinking of making a studyblr. I had one ages ago in high school but I feel it might be more useful as a University student now. Also would help keep me on track since online learning is difficult even for us highly organized folks.
Would any of you be interested in this kind of thing? I also have some studytube idea but I’m not super confident about that yet lmfao.

I’ve been cracking down on CNS studies while trying to balance work.
Sem 2 has started. This is just an overview of my first lecture. Not my main set of notes. Handwriting has improved but still moderately terrible. There is hope :-)
have been super busy because of summer classes, e-board work for my club, & organizing PPE requests.. but it provides me with routine ☀︎
07.13.2020 // I was trying to redraw some of the things I’m learning from memory. I actually like the native Notes app on the iPad when I want to do random mind-maps and recall information (kinda like my digital whiteboard). This is what my digital handwriting looks like when I’m in a rush.
