Did you know that even in research there is a mainline research track trailing behind big companies or well-known names?

Researching anything else is forbidden… at least as far as your advisers are concerned. All your special track research has to be hush hush while you slowly crank out regular mainline track papers.

Eventually, you either realize your idea and decide it's not worth sharing with your community or you move on, having failed to realize your brilliant idea.

There's no winning!

めんどくさいね。。。

fuck the system, fuck hoes, smoke kush

I've done research on my own, separate from my university, because academia focuses on shit that's measurable

there's too much of an emphasis on LaTeX, abstracts, graphs in gnuplot or whatever, and other pseudointellectual shit to make your boring-ass research paper look smarter

but real research can transcend academia

I used to think academia was the be-all and end-all of education, but it's really not

autodidactism is better tbh famalam

post it on your website or github or something, ignore universities

YEET

Fuck it.
I am in bad mood for almost 2 weeks now, and this shit happens every fucking year at the same time (mid January until mid February).
>changing my mood but every night I go to sleep feeling depressed
>not productive
>bad shit happens at least once a week
>i become super sensitive and emotional
>and on top of all that i think i am falling in love with one of my only girl friends

Not sure what to do. Should I just wait or make some moves. I hope this ends soon.

Let's tell each other about strangers doing things that made you feel comfy.

Recently I went to the laundry room to clean some clothes. I like to hang around in the laundry room and play video games and keep an eye on my clothes because I don't trust people not to take them out of the machine.
Sitting at the table was a man wearing a US Marines (or some other military) cap, I guess he was a veteran but I didn't ask. He had a creaky old laptop on the table and was playing a Christmas themed hidden objects game.

Pic unrelated.

I don't really know if comfy is the correct word, but like a year ago i was in the bus with my earphones on, and also the guy sitting next to mine.
I play piano since I'm a kid, and Ihave the habit of start playing an imaginary piano every time I'm listening a song that I already know how to play it. I think at the time I was listening to Bach, so I was trying to resist the temptation of doing that autistic shit, when suddenly the guy next to mine started doing that exact thing. That was odd af, so I decided to do it too, thereby we spend the whole trip (about 30 minutes) playing our imaginaries pianos, and sometimes laughing, but we didn't talk to each other. I kinda regret it cause he seemed pretty based.

Once when I was in college, I was depressed and sitting on the curb with my head in my lap and arms wrapped around. A passerby said something like, "kid, you got your whole life ahead of you" in a reassuring tone.

OP is doing long division to calculate 67/4. At the top you write how many times 4 goes into a certain place value (multiple of 10).

67 = 40 + 24 + 2.8 + 0.2, but OP forgot to separate the last two.

 No.4932

The three is actually to be divided by the 4 as well, where 3/4 is .75 (or if you like, 75% of a 1)

Yesterday was my birthday and girl I wanted to ask to prom texted me that she will show up at my school.
Fortunate event. Got haircut and shaved myself, think I am good looking when I am fresh - you guys
even complimented me on face thread. I met her, few words exchanged and I asked her on spot. She said
no, because she had exams on her university, but I felt like she was going to say yes at first. Mind you, this was
the prettiest girl I know and I felt really confident talking so casually to her, knowing that everyone
was prolly looking at us. Later I heard that few guys had same problem, their girls just had to study for colloquiums.

Regardless, I felt really confident after that talk. I just wish I could have been always like that.

In the past I have been diagnosed with general anxiety disorder and more specifically social anxiety disorder.
It was so bad I couldn't even look people in the eye and I would start shaking whenever I feel like I am looked at, I would run out of classrooms at university because of anxiety attacks.
I can't remember what I was on back at the time.

I have now started a new course ( which basically guranatees a job ) and it's back. It's more under control because I am more mature and have learned to breathe, try to calm myself and distract myself but it still doesn't let me function as a human being. ( + )

I am too poor to afford therapy but my cousin works as a nurse. I have access to: paroxetine, citalopram, sertraline, venlafaxine, regabalin, tradozone and alprazolam.

( + ) I'm currently anticipating social situations and taking 0.50 of xanax ahead with like half or 3 quarters of an hour but this will not last me long because I'm developing resilience to the drug ( I used to take 0.25 ).

I exercise using the bodyweight fitness app whenever I can. I do not drink coffee, alcohol or energy drinks. I used to drink tea but at some point I realised black tea unsettles me and I kind of stopped.

My concerns are anhedonia and gaining weight because this happened last time.
I plan on informing myself for a few weeks first and I am seeking help.
If you can and want please share this post to communities which you think might me knowledgeable.

I'm in a similar situation. Anxiety is affecting my success in college and work. I know it doesn't make your situation any better, but just know that you're not alone with this kind of stuff.

All I know is the less I go out, the more anxious I get. When I used to have more of a social life, socialization was easier for me. The less you do it, the less familiar it is, and the harder it gets. It's like working out: you get bigger muscles when you lift more often. But if you take a long break where you don't go to the gym at all, you get in worse shape again. It's like that, but for mental health too.

I am currently looking into some sliding scale and medicaid places. There are free or sliding scale clinics that can help people who don't have a lot of money. Of course, your mileage may vary.

But don't give up. Try different methods of help, try to find supportive groups, try to reach out to resources that might be able to help you. Google local places related to counseling, mental health, sliding scale, medicaid, job help, etc. There are resources out there.

This resonates with me. If I feel someone's presence is augmenting my social anxiety I just start a conversation with any excuse. If I'm in a class I take my time and talk with everyone. I don't even care, I do it so my anxiety level is lower.
>I am currently looking into some sliding scale and medicaid places.
I'll see If I have something like that in my country.
Don't support groups just turn into an echo chamber of misery ?

These have all made me a lot more productive with relatively little effort. Getting a proper 8 hours of sleep every night also helps a lot.

For creative work, I've found that going to art exhibitions, reading magical realist fiction, and keeping a dream journal all help me think more laterally and less linearly.

Caffeine is a big trade-off in my experience: it makes me more productive when doing menial work, but makes me a lot less creative.

I've found that you typically have creative work that creates menial work. First, you create the plan. Then, you do the work to finish the plan. Figuring out when you are good at each helps you remove stress by avoiding feeling guilty that you aren't doing creativity well when you should be focusing on menial work and vice versa.

I have also seen that creative work motivates menial work. Too much menial work makes you feel sad and like you have lost track of why you are doing it in the first place. Doing too much creative work upfront might cause you to get stuck at 90% until you can find a way to be creative again.

Of course, when you get stuck in a negative thought spiral, all work suffers. Creative work helps you feel your way out of it in my experience.
