the key to writing is don't stop writing. you may think "aw shit but what if the next word or sentence or paragraph sucks? i need to think hard about word ch-" look, even if the next paragraph is "aw fuck i can't think about anything but bean burritos bean bean bean bean" your future self can just edit together the 75% of your writing that isn't the word "bean"

don't be afraid to write badly

That the coronavirus saved more people in China than it killed, thanks to the drop in air pollution, does not mean we are over-reacting to the virus. It means we should stop polluting the air. Duh.

If there's just one advice I could give my younger self, it'd be to keep a diary, and to do so consistently throughout my life, not just when I feel like it.

What to do after finishing the PhD? I've just run that query. 2 months ago was the defense of my thesis and everything was perfect. But since then, 😕. I've found this post: Five Things to Do After Finishing Your PhD (phdstudies.com/article/five-th: 1.Take a well-deserved break; 2. Do something crazy; 3. Start a blog; 4. Clean, clean, clean; 5. Think deeply about your options). It's funny, because I completed the first two things with no idea of the post🤔.
Anyway, it's time to clean, clean and clean...

It's not when you can't see home, that's still too close. It's when you can't see how to get to where you can see home. That's when you've lost home.
"There," father says, "just above those three stars in a line. You can't see it, but that's where Earth's Sun is."
I can't see it.

I've seen this topic and I would like to share my readings, mostly in Spanish.

For the last 20 months I've been leading a vegan lifestyle (not so easy in this society). But yesterday I realized my sneakers are mostly made of leather, split cowhide, etc. So yesterday I bought new and my first vegan-sneakers 😄



Resubmit for review decision...

What to do when comments by reviewers are in some points contradictory? R. A says the methodology is well explained and valid. R. B asks why don't we used correlation coefficients (but we're modelling and then using linear regression analysis). R. C asks if we forgot specifying the method used when we say "the method is linear regression analysis (Enter method)". Doesn't Reviewer C know about Enter, Stepwise, etc., methods for linear regression analysis?
😕
