A very small thing, but I'm glad that I found a kludgy recommendation online for how to make my Apple Watch give me a little nudge every 30 minutes. It took about 10-15 minutes to add a bunch of fake "events" to a calendar, each repeating indefinitely, each set to give an alarm when the "event" happens. I put them in a new calendar, so I can hide it from other apps & all those events disappear from the calendar app I actually use. Since I don't quite perceive time, it's super helpful.

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.
"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
