It’s getting hard to be someone, but it all works out - John Lennon

Pithy snapshots of my brain through captures of tv/film, music, quotes, and other inspirations as I find them.

ABOUT ME: Part-time vidder. Full-time grad student. Lifetime fangirl.

I use my LJ for more lengthy fandom things, reactions, score/picspam metas and the like. My Pinboard keeps all my recs of fic, vids, and meta as I find them. I recently founded THG Music Archive after Hunger Games totally usurped my brain and then said "No, I'm a book, silly. You have to wait to vid all the things you want to vid for at least THREE YEARS." Books are cruel, yo.

This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

Multitasking

From maintaining a course-load with multiple subjects to completing various projects and papers all at one, every college student knows that there’s never just one thing to do at a time. If you’re the type of student who works on multiple assignments while simultaneously eating dinner and watching television, you’re not alone. Everybody multitasks, but what most people don’t realize is that, in fact, multitasking doesn’t work. Studies show that only about 2% of people are capable of effectively multitasking, but that doesn’t stop the remaining 98% of people from trying. And with today’s technology, everyone multitasks more than ever—from using smartphones in class to tablets while watching television, there are always multiple things to be doing at one time. While multitasking may make you feel like you’re accomplishing more things in less time, in actuality trying to multitask does more harm than good: It reduces productivity, and even lowers your IQ. Things like texting while studying or watching TV while working on a paper can have a huge effect on your academic success, so next time you’re tempted to multitask while doing schoolwork, remember that if you really want to get something done right, multitasking is probably not your best route.

It bugs me when people are unnecessarily mean. Like, you didn’t have to make that comment. You could have just kept your mouth shut and left that person not feeling bad about themselves. What do you gain from making someone else feel like shit? Nothing of substance. Maybe a fleeting moment of power but that’s gone as soon as it comes so why? There’s enough unhappiness in the world without you adding to it.
