Thank you for tagging me, stupidestablishment !
What was the longest amount of time you’ve spent studying (with no breaks)?
About two hours?
Supporting my natural instincts, there’s research that indicates that it’s WAY better to take loads of breaks. Here’s a really interesting lecture about this and a heap of other study tips (especially for college/university): x
What is your favourite chocolate?
Zotter No question.
When you go to school do you dress like a hobo, athlete, fashionista, or just casual(Jeans and a tshirt)?
On rare occasions, I dress up, but most of the time I feel right at home in sweaters and sneakers.
Are you in a relationship right now?
A very committed one.
(What do you mean my laptop doesn’t count?)
What is your favourite quote?/Who is your role model?
Answered here: x
What food do you like to eat when you study?
Everything within a 1m radius. I’m not very picky when it comes to that. But most of the time I just stick to drinking water, because eating puts my brain in the “now roll over and relax”-mode.
It’s great as a positive reinforcement after studying, though.
Ramen - my drug of choice.
How many hours of sleep do you normally get?
Between 6-11h, but I try to get my 7.5h nightly. (Did you know that it’s best to do the sleepy dream thing in 90min intervals? That’s why 7.5h and 9h are better than 8h for feeling fresh in the morning)
If you were to go back in time to relive one moment of your life, what moment would you go back to?
Full consciousness but unable to change anything? Probably my birth. It would mess me up bad, but I’d take the punch for science. Knowing how a baby feels and what it experiences when it’s being born would be …. mind-blowing.
What is the one word you seem to overuse?
When you go out with your friends to “play” what do you normally do with them?
Depends. With my best friend, it’s usually going on walks, talking, jumping into random improv performances on the street (e.g. pretending to be two Scottish brothers who have a mother complex, one of whom is in the mafia and left the family when they needed him most. It… kind of just happens), making up stories, watching movies, not making any sense anymore (e.g. communicating in wheezing sounds, talking to trees, …), photo-shoots, painting, …
With my other friends (who are so amazing) I usually just nerd out most of the time, we talk about fandoms, books, movies, do movie/series marathons (we’re in the middle of Breaking Bad right now), go for tea or food, talk, wander through museums, … stuff like that.
I’m not really a
kind of person. More of a
Like before, I’m tagging everyone who comes across this and feels like introspecting:
