💭 Jonah I'm starting college in a few months. Does anyone here have advice for anything?
😃💬 Javier Some experience a culture shock in the dorms or the classroom. Expectations are high and unknown. Lectures may sound familiar or unfamiliar. If I had to go back I would take better care of my time management and clear, concise and attainable academic and personal goals. I would not be afraid to say no if comes down to do things that I clearly don't like.
Eric Most important part is to just show up to class & pay attention. No phone or browsing. Most exams will be straight forward if you're attentive. Finished college about 8 years ago and honestly found ratemyprofessor very helpful for picking good instructors.
Zero Edge Drop any class or professor (within 2 week cut off) that you think you will have a hard time passing.
👨💻🎧 Matthieu V. Just came along obsidian.md it make me want to structure my notes/ideas but I don't really know where and how to start... Maybe it would be a great software to start doing some daily journaling
😃💬 Javier I tried Evernote and other myriad of tools to organize my data too. No luck so far. Visualizing things in a way that evoke/trigger my memory is tricky. I do my daily journaling with a python console I wrote that stores my musings with the date and current weather temperature on a single text file that gets checked in on a local git repo. It's pretty boring. I should post the python console in Github or something.
Dan I've been using CherryTree for as long as I can remember and I can't get enough of it. I'm sure it's not doing anything unique with the hirearchical style of notes, but it is as basic and advanced as I like my software so it follows me from install to install. All of my worldbuilding/creative writing stuff is just as chaotic as my physical notebook.. so maybe it wont help you organize anything if you're like me and prefer the chaos, but worth checking out either way
Rsm Single-digit temperature again this morning. Somebody tell the #weather this is the tropics we're in.
Zero Edge People act like if you just "vaccinated everyone" then you wouldn't have to worry about variants.. You do realize the virus has mutated multiple times within a year right? There is no way you can vaccinate the entire population of the world to 100% within a year. Even if you vaccinated 100% of the USA other countries wouldn't be able to so fast so guess what? Variants. You can't win this. Sorry.
🏒 Lucian Marin Virus would have mutated anyway. Vaccines help us have partial wins. It's not a total loss or victory.
☕✍️ David Antoine The vaccines may have induced those variants as well. There is a very good Livestream with Lex Friedman and Bert Weinstein discussing that possibility. A vaccination campaign at the height of a pandemic was maybe not the right thing to start. Weinstein also talks about the Ivermectin drug which seems extremely effective against the virus but is totally kept on the back burner... Partial win like Lucian said, at best.
Zero Edge Adding a new word to my dictionary. macron. noun. a person who abuses power in attempt to satisfy their cowardice. -> "Every time I wanted to go hang out with my friends my ex boyfriend turned into a complete macron."
