I'm super smart because I took all the capitalist advice and just decided to be born into the middle class instead of living a hard life

bad news: i failed Anatomy & Physiology. capital F Failed. :ThisIsFine:

good news: i get to retake it alongside Disorders in Children and Teens, an interesting-sounding class i had to cut from my academic plan due to limited space

first day of the new term! i'm taking Statistics in Psychology & Contemporary Health. :BlobCatCoffee:

i'm terrible about wearing glasses. i desperately need them but it's been years since i've worn them consistently - i stopped sometime in high school.

when i moved i left my glasses at home. i ordered a pair online and they just arrived... my vision was so bad it's appalling

for everyone: it's a very cute study timer that works by you flipping your phone over.

it uses the pomodoro technique and motivates you by grading your "focus" level - e.g. not picking up your phone until you earn a break. it also ranks you among others in your country so you're motivated to be #1!

an addition to my desktop monitor at work

HELP INSTEAD OF WORKING I WENT GROCERY SHOPPING AND FOOLED AROUND!! NOW I ONLY HAVE SIX HOURS TO COMPLETE EVERYTHING!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

at the beginning of 2018, i set a goal to read 25 books this year. sounds small, but with how awful my mental health was in 2017, it was a HUGE project.

i exceeded this goal by 10! so far i've read 35 books in 2018, and i'm hoping to get one or two more in before the year ends.

in 2019, i'm shooting for 50. i missed reading so much, guys. depression is the worst and i'm so glad i'm (slowly but surely) kicking its ass.

the best emojo here is easily the this is fine dog --> :ThisIsFine:

it sums up my entire academic career. lord help me

Scholar Social

Federated microblogging for academics

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, 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"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

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 @socrates@scholar.social 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.
