As usual, I forgot it was Tuesday. I need to get some kind of system that alerts me of what day it is. Like…a calendar…on my phone…which is something I already have. So just ignore that entire train of thought.
This week, it feels like I’m a college student cramming for finals. I present my research on Friday for UCI’s Ethics Center. Even though it’s pretty low-key, I am nervous because I don’t even remember the last time I spoke in public about my own work. It’s a weird thing to be searching for academic definitions to use in my presentation when I know what the definitions are, but because I don’t have a Ph.D yet, my own definitions aren’t valid enough.
But alas, it’s part of the process and I’m just trying to go through the motions so I can prove that this work is worth it.
This week’s playlist is a mix of soothing, poppy beats to help me get through this grind. I don’t know what genre you’d categorize it as, but I dig it. There’s also a little bursting surprise of k-pop goodness in there. Dedicating it to my good friend, Seonyoung who got married this past weekend to Jung in a beautiful ceremony. Love to you both!
Tell me your thoughts!
