Hey exam people, remember that you’re still human despite maybe not feeling you have time to be right now. You need your sleep. You need food and water, and you need to do something fun too/something that recharges you. You need the freetime and the breaks, and so does that great mind of yours to absorb the knowledge. I wish you good luck, nice surprises and good outcomes. 🌸
Hiya!! It's been so long since I posted anything original and my life has been one whole train wreck after another but I wanted to ease back into productivity. it's been a couple months of intense self-discovery and I'm not doing great but I'm working towards feeling better. I don't have the energy to start any challenges but I'll hopefully be posting weekly updates :)
✨tiny accomplishments this week ✨
- After an entire year of not doing any extracurriculars, decided to enter an essay writing contest and submitted my work
- FINALLY cleaned my mess of a room, brought out some scented candles, and strung up fairy lights
- Actually studied (for a very short time but did it anyway)
- Signed up for a summer research project
✨goals for next week ✨
- Try to wake up at 5 every day
- Don't stay up watching TikTok till 3 in the morning
There's one teacher in my class that keeps slandering me indirectly. He keeps blabbing about his class flaws in a humorous way and I think it's a bit offensive. Sir are you really a teacher? I know your scolding us for not making the best out of it but there is a people who's likely to be a minimalist and simple. You keep giving hate crtitique in your students in indirect way. Especially me, you keep getting me out of place in your class, because I'm the most quiet student there. I know the phrase "if the shoe fits" but I think it's not the case for me, like he's giving an 'favoritism' on the students he knows the most and not keeping up with the 'lonely' students and I think that's not acceptable. He keeps forgetting me whenever there's a recitation, and then later on he will just laugh it off when the class says I'm not yet called. Man, my self esteem really got low because of this.
The last two days were fine but not going to talk about 'em as a I had a couple of lows but it's alright coz I live the way it hurts lmao. Today was good, started with physics, and I'll be doing majorly Phy in this week. Eyeing for productivity. And I want to run, yes.
Amazing video by professor Zoe on how extrinsic rewards kill creativity and motivation in education and the workplace, and the inherent injustices of grades-based education systems and jobs that both fail to pay a livable wage and fail to make the work bearable for workers, and the real harm visited on those who must work the jobs that society considers less-than.
Her content is excellent. She covers a lot of interesting topics centered on education and the injustices of having a class-based economy. For example, her video on the gentrification of foods which people living in poverty depend on to survive, and how harmful this gentrification is. I highly recommend her content.
I graduated university. I've kept my part time job. I literally have no confidence - to apply for a new job. Like I feel empty and have no desires. I don't even have hobbies. I still live with my parents. I don't know where to start.
i think this conception that good students are perfect in almost all senses is so bad and limiting like you being a good student is not just being good in studies but also having perfectly pared nails, well-made hair, proper socks and well-ironed clothes and it might be just eastern thing where we have to wear uniforms to college and school and let me just say this for y’all you can be a top student but punk as well ... you can have unkempt hair or overly kempt hair for that matter as long as your purpose of getting education is fairly fulfilled ... if you love adhering to rules, just do it but if you feel claustrophobic by them, just be who you wanna be !! Because i think following forced social rules is a way of seeking people’s validation and it sort of inculcates that people-pleasing streak in “good” students which turns into anxiety and far bad things as they grow into adults
after an incredible 14 day streak of abstinence, i bring to you some actual studyblr content.
classes start on monday so i thot i’d get some reading done ahead. only my tourism class has the canvas course available so far. got through a whopping 8 pages out of 31 but that’s still something. also did a doulingo lesson

#** // OOC. #aside from the past versions of doc and theresa #her students #those who were her opposites yet still understood where she was coming from #those who were the same as her except unfortunately in a mortal body #so fragile #the human life #im sure the ratio is large #*sits*
