Helped cath a baby. It didn’t help.
I was rewarded for very good notes with a nap around hour 20. At hour 22, I couldn’t sleep through the cold anymore. It was still a good nap.
The nurses gifted us their leftover donuts.
Gonna go home and sleep hard.
Thanks for joining me on this adventure guys. I’m sure I’ll have a lot more to come but it’s always fun to see how that very first time ended up.
To all your future 24s and more. Good luck.
An ex-Kon says that former employees are told they may not use Konami’s name on their resumes in order to get jobs. If former employees are interviewed by any media outlets, it’s quite likely they will be taken to court.
While this allegedly extends to “everyone,” there’s special focus on people currently working for Kojima Productions. Two months ago, a Kojima exec was denied service from gaming industry health care provider ITC Kempo, reportedly because an ITC Kembo board member was also a board member at Konami.
learning japanese using tae kim’s guide! apparently my friend managed to get her japanese to N5 level just by a few years of watching anime and no formal lessons?? i think that’s amazing - i’ve been watching anime for a year (i used to just read manga) and i’ve only been able to pick up basic phrases from it…
Hello! Thank you @avidlove for sending in a request for this masterpost! I honestly had so much fun making it (and the icons) ahaha. This is basically just a quick guide on my school essentials. Hopefully it’ll be useful for you guys!
PS: I made all icons except the first 2 paper clips, the whistle, and the 2 water bottles. Those were taken from Google Images. All credit goes to respective owners.
summer has (un)officially begun! here are some sweet tips and tricks to help you maintain your productivity during these fun times, even if you’re out of school.
wake up at a respectable time. seriously. if your sleep schedule is all out of wack, then chances are that your productivity will be too. i usually make it a point to go to bed before 11:30 p.m, and i wake up between 7-8:30 a.m. modify this to your needs, obviously, but maintaining a sleep timetable that you can stick to is important. you can go off it a few times, of course (midnights at the beach, anyone?), because hey! it’s summer. just tailor to your needs.
find a new hobby! whether it’s cooking, learning a language, or exercising, picking up a new interest over the summer keeps you occupied and creates a healthy habit for you before the next school year.
online lectures/schooling. a super cool way to learn a bit more, with videos and lectures from some of the school’s top universities. it might be a little over your head, but it’ll give you something neat to chew on and some bonus education. plus, it’s of YOUR choosing.
volunteer work! i love to coach at my nearby pool, it’s a fun way to interact with kids AND i earn some volunteer hours. find something near you, and a make it a day-long opportunity or even a month-long project. it feels good to give back to the community.
water. oh my god, drink water. it’s a season of extremes, no matter where you are, and drinking water is oh so important to stay healthy when you’re not actively thinking about it. buy a 32 oz water bottle (or, if you’re feeling fancy, a cute tumbler) and fill it up with water. drink that. all of it. repeat. keep repeating.
create a healthy routine that allows you to feel productive even when you’re not really doing anything. for me, that’s forcing myself to make my bed, get dressed, etc. by 10:00 a.m. that way, i feel as if i’ve started my day, even though i’ve only done the smallest things. that usually gives me motivation to continue with my tasks.
most importantly, enjoy it! whether you’re going on vacation or not, taking classes, whatever, it’s summer and you should enjoy your break. take a day off sometimes. go out with your friends. do something that makes you happy.
