canvas 

it's so trivial but i get the weirdest tiny dopamine burst because canvas explodes confetti all over the page when i successfully turn in an assignment, i don't know if this is institution or class specific (like if an instructor has to enable it), it's so goofy and makes me roll my eyes every time but also smile a little???

okay i should just let myself enjoy the silly thing and move on.

that feeling of '12-14 pages for this assignment feels stout' and then looking more closely at the specs and i'm asked to use 14pt font and double space because the professor is 86 and doesn't want to squint as much

can anyone get me jstor.org/stable/j.ctvdjrr2c (doi 10.2307/j.ctvdjrr2c)? my library has a physical copy but not online access, and i am trying very hard to not have to interact with the physical copy

citations, gender roles 

that feeling of gritting my teeth and cite someone as "Kussart, Mrs. S." because that's how she's canonically cited, it was the 1920s.

(i did some digging and also found her unmarried name, including her first name, but she was only ever published as Mrs. S. Kussart)

personal rambling 

i'm taking two classes this semester because last semester i was bored to tears when i got put on remote duty

i don't think i will take any classes next semester and instead allocate all that extra time to...anything else

i don't regret having coursework this semester, i'm just feeling wholly unfocused about it because This Whole Situation has put all my grad school planning on indefinite pause and i'm trying to reset what i want to commit myself to

have i really gotten to a point at which "insectopedia" by hugh raffles is going to come up every semester for the rest of my life

i've had such a day, logistics+planning are hard, i had to send someone a scheduling email three times before i got it right, my brain is mush, i'm going rock climbing tomorrow and not touching a computer

OH UPDATE, that time is UTC, convert to your local time, please

formatting whine 

pdf of a three-column journal article that is extremely! clunky! to read! on my ereader!

wow, this is an absolute first, i just got the specs for the semester project for this class delivered as a .png

i think it might be a screencap of the instructions typed up in word

(the professor is 86 and this semester has been a wild ride of him learning the technology available to him)

okay it's too last minute to call up a whole but i sure am expending extra effort to focus on Studying tonight so i'm just going to externalize this and declare that it's study hall

it was only a matter of time before a professor would invite me to bring in furry porn for the class

(anthropologists are weird, yo)
