so as the nerd i am on thursday i doodled a “happy star wars day and may the fourth be with you!” on our academic center board and this Guy™ was like “haha nice try, but you spelled force wrong! :)” and i swear to god in that moment my soul left my body and i thanked it

anonymous asked:

I know that you don't really like Art Center very much, but can I ask How many elective classes (like humanities or sciences; basically the GE stuff you needed to complete) did you take per semester and did it make it more stressful for you when you were studying? I was planning on transferring to Art Center next semester without getting the all 45 transferrable credits, so I wanted to know your opinion on it.

hello! haha despite my own personal feelings about art center i’m always open to answering questions and trying to support students or future students so  🙏 i hope i can help.

i had an associate’s degree in general education when i started art center, and so about half my credits transferred. so i probably took around 6-7 classes at art center. iirc i started academics in 4th term and took 2 per term, give or take. 

art center academics are not at all on the level of other college classes, or probably even high school classes. they’re built around your studio classes so VERY few of them have a lot of homework, and they almost always allow you to be creative in the context of the class. for example, i took a neurology class that was mostly about how our brains process images and how phenomenology impacts art, and a business class where the final project was to create a pitch for a non-profit, including doing trademark and copyright paperwork. i actually really liked most of the academics i took, and didn’t feel they impacted my studio classes that much. my advice is to meet with the academics adviser and start taking them asap, you definitely don’t want them to pile up in your later terms.

also take any of terry lee stone’s classes. she’s the best :)

Any advice for an m3 starting family medicine clerkship?

Here’s a brief little post I wrote about what to read and what to study for the shelf. 

But wait, there’s more!

Family medicine is a hard rotation, especially to have at the beginning of the year, because it covers SO much material.

  • Hi Yield stuff to know
  • Think systematically. Use mnemonics to help you expand your differential diagnosis. Keep patient demographics and co-morbid conditions in mind as you make your differential.
  • Even if you have no interest in family medicine, you will learn something relevant to your specialty of choice on your family med rotation. Depending on your attendings, you may be able to tailor your rotation a bit toward what you are interested in (more kids! Pregnant ladies! women’s health! sports medicine for you ortho folks! office procedures for the surgeonly types! more psych for you little Freuds!).
  • Embrace the variety. Don’t let it overwhelm you. You will see something new every day. Write it down and read about it when you go home. Write down the medications or diagnoses that are unfamiliar to you and read on them too.
  • The AAFP is your friend. They have tips for doing well on your rotation too. You can make a student account and access lots of practice questions for your shelf exam. Use the online board exam prep questions.
  • If you have the opportunity to do your family medicine rotation in a community or rural practice rather than an academic medical center, take it. Family medicine was designed to be a community based practice, not academic, so you will find the specialty looks very different in those two settings.
Brandeis Gothic
  • The Castle was built from the outside in, they tell you. Every single tour you pass by, you hear the same lie repeated. They don’t tell you about the whitewashed frescos in Castle Common, the ladder up to the roof. The sea-blue tiles, the old and mouldering memories sealed off in the outer courtyard wall. The ghosts exorcised, the memories and disappointments erased. You can smell it all on rainy days, in the must of leaky ceilings and crumbling parapets.
  • It seems like there’s always a new Shapiro building. Shapiro Hall. Shapiro Science Center. SCC. Shapiro Academic Center. Shapiro Dining Hall. Shapiro Living Room. Shapiro Bedroom. Shapiro Basement.
  • There’s whispers of a secret laboratory under the Rabb steps, run by men in sunglasses and white lab coats. A friend of a friend of a friend once went in for their Psych 10A requirement. You haven’t seen them since.
  • Daniel Mael wasn’t the first, and he isn’t the last. “‘Truth unto its innermost parts,’” you hear your professor grumble after the lecture’s ended. “Truth don’t mean what it used to.” You hug your friends a little tighter when you see them.
  • Everyone you know does theater. They’re all always in tech. “I have so much rehearsal tonight,” you hear them moan. You see them walk into the green room, faces drooping with exhaustion. Once, you met the eyes of an acquaintance coming out from her show’s 10-out-of-12. You didn’t see anything but a void of stars mirrored in her pupils.
  • Brandeis buries its ugly history, most of the time; it’s painted over with granite, steel, and glass. For example: the bones of the old Ford Hall lie in state under the foundations of the SCC, singing soliloquies for promises yet unfulfilled.
  • “We heard you!” the Sodexo sign proclaims in bold 12-point Comic Sans. “Dunkin Donuts is coming to Usdan! Library Starbucks hours have been eliminated on weekends! Blood sacrifice is now accepted for meal exchange!” You post about it in the Senate Dining Committee Facebook group but no one pays it any mind. You receive a message request from a manager in Dining Services. You don’t open it.

Decided to start a Studyblr! I’ve been struggling with motivation this fall after a long summer semester and new priorities. I need to keep pushing myself and keep going, December 2016 is only 14 months away ⭐️

Quick info about me: I have a BA in communications and I am back in school for a BBA in accounting for a more sensible future. I love the challenge of school and if I am able, I would love to be in academia forever. I am a writing and reading tutor at my university’s academic resource center, and I make and sell planner stickers at MiriamMintyPrints.etsy.com. My main tumblr is frosting.tumblr.com 💛

Where....?

I’ve seen a lot of blogs and posts saying that simply connecting two items with の makes an understood implication that ____ is near _____, for example, 「傘のつくえ」means “the umbrella is on the desk.” This is not true!!!! What that really says is 「umbrella’s desk」! Do you know someone named umbrella? I don’t!

So today I’m going to go over common location words and how to use them in a sentence for giving directions or simply saying where something is.

We’ll start small, and gradually (okay, it’s not that gradual) get bigger.

Location Vocabulary

Right- 右 migi
Left- 左 hidari
Behind- 後ろushiro
In front of- 前 mae
Inside- 中 naka
On top of/above- 上 ue
Under/beneath- 下 shita
Near- 近くchikaku
Next to- 隣 tonari
*Between- 間 aida

*between uses a slightly different structure. Refer to the below.

I’ve decided to opt for polite conjugations in this post because about 60% of the time, you’ll be giving directions to strangers.

Structure

Aはどこですか?
OR
Aはどこにありますか?

どこですか is just shorter, so that’s what I’ll use.

The basic structure when answering is:

AはBの〜

So, for example:

Konatsu: 傘はどこですか?kasa wa doko desu ka?
Me: 小夏ちゃん、傘はつくえの下です。konatsu chan, kasa wa tsukue no shita desu.
Konatsu: Where’s my umbrella?
Whoever (me, probably): Kona, your umbrella is under the desk.

Like most sentences in Japanese, the understood subject (the topic) can be omitted, so technically you could just say 「つくえの下です。」”Under the desk.“ and it would be obvious you’re talking about the umbrella because she literally just asked you where her umbrella was.

*THE ONE EXCEPTION:

When you want to say "between,” the structure is:
 AとBの〜

So not much is different, but it’s worth noting!

Practice and Usage

I think visual aids are really good for this, so let’s start out with….well, my “desk” (my dining room table).


ノートはどこですか?Nooto wa doko desu ka? 
ノートはマップの下です。nooto wa mappu no shita desu.
Where’s my notebook?
The notebook is under the map.

水はどこですか?mizu wa doko desu ka?
水はマップの後ろです。mizu wa mappu no ushiro desu.
Where’s my water?
The water is behind the map.

薬はどこですか?kusuri wa doko desu ka?
薬はコンピューターの右です。kusuri wa konpyuutaa no migi desu.
Where are my medications?
The medications are to the right of the computer. (yes, it’s that giant box.)

And finally:

コンピューターはどこですか?konpyuutaa wa doko desu ka?
水と薬の間です。mizu to kusuri no aida desu.
Where’s my computer?
It’s between the water and the medication.

Now let’s think bigger.

Here’s a map of a portion of my campus. The buildings circled in red are the buildings the following people are talking about.

小太郎:すみません。ニースのホールはどこですか?sumimasen. niisu no hooru wa doko desu ka?
まるまる:じゃあ、えと…ああ!ブラウン・チャップルの右です!! jaa, eto…aa! buraun chappuru no migi desu.
Kotaru: Excuse me. Where’s Nease Hall?
(Maru Maru just means fill in the blanks, so basically, you): Hmm, let’s see…oh! It’s to the right of Brown Chapel!

小太郎:ねえ、パーキング・ロットはどこですか?nee, paakingu rotto wa doko desu ka?
まるまる:ああ、パーキング・ロットはライアン・ライブラリとニコルソン・コモンズの後ろです。aa, paakingu rotto wa raian raiburari to nikoruson komonzu no ushiro desu.
Kotaru: Hey, where’s the parking lot?
You: Ah, the parking lot is behind Ryan Library and Nicholson Commons.

Inside of Nicholson Commons (aka the cafeteria, and then some random stuff underneath it like a little gift shop), there’s a little cafe called “Bobby B’s,” named after the dean of our school (Bobby Brown). So what if someone was looking for the cafe?

すみません。喫茶店はどこですか?sumimasen. kissaten wa doko desu ka?
じゃあ、喫茶店はニコルソン・コモンズの中です。jaa, kissaten wa nikoruson komonzu no naka desu.
Excuse me. Where is the cafe?
Mmmm, the cafe is inside Nicholson Commons.

So, here’s some practice if you want to try this out yourselves! Refer to my campus map. If you want to check your answers, just message me off anon or type a reply to this post!

Where’s the ocean?
The ocean is in front of the campus.

Where’s the gym?
It’s to the right of the tennis courts.

Where can I find more parking?
There’s extra parking behind Bond Academic Center (LJML), and to the right of the gym.

GUYS!!! I’M SO EXCITED!!!

I work in the Academic Support Center at my college doing… a lot of things. I showed the director the worksheets I made recently. She thought they were great. Putting them on our website. Then I showed her my planner… SHE. LOVED. IT.

My school might pay me to design a custom student planner for them to give out to students!!!!!!!!!

I’m so excited. It’s not *confirmed* yet, but I know she’s going to do what she has to in order to make it happen because she really wants that resource available to students.

This is the dream, guys. To have my college purchase planners from me to give out to students for free. Which is really the best case scenario for the students. And that is my goal; to make quality resources that are affordable and specifically made to help facilitate student success.

If you haven’t yet, you can check out the 2016-2017 Student Planner here and all my other printables here.

How INFJs interact with other types.

As an INFJ, I always adapt myself to be what someone is lacking. 

If I’m around a reclusive introvert who hates everyone, I focus all of my warmth and attention on them. I practically spew glitter in an attempt to get them to open up, though not to the extremes that an ENFP does. (Sorry, ENFPs. I just don’t know how you do it.) 

 If I’m around an introvert that wants to be sympathized with rather than pried out of their shell, my manner becomes more soft and reserved. I ask questions that are philosophical and academics-centered around Thinking types. Whereas, around Feeling types, I’m more prone to ask how they’re doing. It’s kind of what causes INFJ’s to be called ‘The Counselor,’ I suppose. 

 Around extroverts, I am a shy enigma. I resemble a puzzle for them to solve, or simply the quiet girl who wants to be understood. 

I’ve been unconsciously doing this for years, modifying myself to be the version of me that people want me to be. It’s only recently that I’ve opened up more and tried to be myself. And though I still probably appear mysterious and complex from an outside perspective, at least now I know that I’ve only been changing myself to help others.

funny story

In Jr. High, my friends and I all had older sibling who attended the high school part of the school (the school started at Jr. High aka 7th grade aka the academic center and went until 12th grade). The Jr. High students only had seven classes in one day while the high schoolers had eight. My counselor would always make my friends and I wait in front of the library at the end of the high schoolers eight class to be picked up by our siblings.

One day, one of my friends and I were talking about a book that we had been reading (we were considered nerds because we would always finish our work early and read books that weren’t for class). In the book the two main characters had finally done the deed. The way the author explained it was hilarious to us. So me being me decided to act it out. I was in the middle of the hallway strutting and singing “I’m too sexy for my shoes, too sexy for my socks,too sexy for my bra” like I was on an actual catwalk.

I was pretending to unclasp my bra and making kissing noises when I noticed my friends got really quiet. I turn around, hands still pretending like I’m going to take off my bra, lips puckered up, and there is this teacher behind me just staring at me amusedly. It was like a seen from t.v; I was so embarrassed. I went on to have that teacher for my last two years of high school…
