journalism related

bacontardis  asked:

Do you have any suggestion for veterinary journals or other good journals related to animal science? I would like to start reading some but I have no clue as to where to start. For classes, we just found articles pertaining to a specific topic.

I mostly read the Australian Veterinary Journal (AJV) and the Australian Veterinary Practitioner (published by the ASAVA).

AVJ has more experimental studies or retrospective studies. AVP often has moe case studies, so depends on what you’re looking for.

Unless you have a library membership though, these journals are not free to access.

I did read some of the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association studies as a student, but I haven’t had membership since I graduated.

Sometimes I’m not sure if it’s worse to feel everything or to feel nothing at all.

“You can’t half love someone who is too full of life. Maybe that’s why they say ‘Crazy in love’. You either go mad or never know the magic at all.”

Study, as this is the only thing you can do as a student, for now. Study, while you are still given the opportunity, as not everyone is given the chance to be educated. Study, so you would know how to make a difference, not just for yourself, but for the whole world.

I’ve personally found journaling to be very advantageous to both my recovery as well as my overall psyche, and I’d suggest it to anyone. Below I’ve comprised a little list of daily journaling topics that individuals in recovery as well as others may find to be enjoyable.
1.) Write 3 things that were great about your day.
2.) Keep a daily gratitude list and jot down one thing you’re thankful for every morning.
3.) Write down one affirmation every day and repeat it to yourself (be sincere).
4.) Write about what you have learned this week (no matter how mundane it may seem).
5.) Journal about the best thing that happened to you this week (give details).
6.) Write what your biggest challenges were for the week.
7.) Journal about things you did for the first time.
8.) Write down your top three priories for the upcoming week.
9.) Make a “Positives List” and write down:
-anything you’re proud of
-positives changes you’ve experienced (in recovery or in general)
-things you like about yourself
-positive statements loved ones may use to describe you
-what makes you unique/special
-things you are good at
*Refer to this list regularly and add to it as needed*
10.) Comprise a list of negative core beliefs and then go back and reframe them all with an affirmation towards yourself.
11.) Journal about where you envision yourself to be within the next 5 years.
12.) Write a letter saying all the things you’d like to voice to someone you dislike with no intentions of sending it.
13.) Schedule a date with yourself once a month; write about all the things you’d like to do, and do them.
14.) Write an amends letter to yourself; then write a thank you letter to yourself.
15.) Keep a dream log. Write down what you dreamed the night before as soon as you wake up (include as many details as possible).
16.) List all your favorite quotes. Underneath write why you enjoy them so much and how they apply to you.

For those in recovery, you may find it beneficial to set aside 10 minutes everyday and answer these following questions:
1.) Did my recovery go as planned today?
2.) What impediments, if any, were there to my recovery?
3.) What can I do to remove these impediments next time?
I’ve also included some journaling assignments you may find to be helpful:
4.) Create a list of what is good about staying the same and what is bad about staying the same.
Then form a list of good and bad outcomes of making a change.
5.) Create a plan/schedule in advance to help you steer clear of temptations that may throw you off course.

If you can think of any additions to add to this list feel free to message them to me. I’m always open to new journaling assignments. Hopefully you all can find at least one of these suggestions to be fun and constructive. Happy journaling to you all!
PS- I’d love to read any of your entries; feel free to message them to me.

We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains or swim the oceans - because we can. We have some impulse within us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings. That’s why we paint, that’s why we dare to love someone - because we have the impulse to explain who we are.

I refused to believe them when they told me that you’d lost your spark, but I guess that they were right. I don’t know what you’ve been doing all these months of silence, but obviously you’ve lost yourself in the process. I don’t know exactly what went wrong between us but I do know that I miss the old you. I know that i’d give anything to hear one of your stupid jokes again, I’d do anything just to go back, even for a day, but your not the same person anymore. You’ve lost yourself. Someone once told me that nothing is infinite, not even loss,

So I really hope you find yourself again.
