When a post says (for example) Sun in the houses . Does that mean you look for your sun sign in your houses or do you look for Leo in your houses. Sorry it's a kinda dumb question but I haven't been able to understand :/

Sun!!

Are you pale or tan or kind of an in-betweener?:
My arms got a tan when I was on vacation, but the rest of me is very pale.

What do you think of the word ‘weener’?:
I don’t think much about it.

Do you have long or short nails? (why):
Short, basically non-existent, because I pick at them.

Do you ever wear anything with sequins?:
No.

Have you ever considered growing a mustache/dating someone with a mustache?:
It’s not something I’ve really thought about. I wouldn’t be opposed?

Not really a question but do you have tips for reading and understanding science articles and the data presented. I find i have to highlight, take notes, and re-read the article a couple times before I can understand fully what all the stuff means. Sorry if I sound kinda dumb but I'm just a wee padawan looking for easier ways to read science articles. Thanks a bunch :)

Reading scientific articles is really difficult, and I struggle with it too, especially if it’s not a paper that’s directly related to my field/research.

I guess it really depends on what you’re reading it for - like I approach a paper differently if I’m reading it for class, or my research, or just my own edification (lol I never just read papers for fun and knowledge).

But generally, I read the abstract (what are the authors trying to communicate?), then look at the figures and read the captions (what does their data actually say?) then move on to the results/discussion section to better understand/contextualize the data. I only read the introduction if I feel like I need more context, or if I’m mining for sources for something I’m writing. Don’t read the methods unless you are reading it specifically for the methods. 

It helps to pick one or two major results to focus on the first time through. What are you trying to get out of it, and what is important for your purposes? Maybe it’s the major result or the interpretation of the data or the methods, it’s really about why you’re reading it. Focus on that thing and read around it - what parts of the paper do you need to understand to really get what they’re saying?

Then, if you want, you can branch out and read what the rest of the paper is saying. You’ll have a better grasp on the main point by then, so it’ll be easier to contextualize and understand the rest of it.

The point is, never read a scientific paper straight through, especially the first time. You’ll get lost in the weeds of the introduction and never make it to the good stuff. Ask yourself what you want to get out of it, what parts of it you care about, and start there. Scientific papers aren’t actually written linearly, and really shouldn’t be read linearly either. Unless you really hate yourself I guess. 

Happy reading!
