It is a race against time. To not only keep up with my notes , e-tutorials and e-lessons but also my assignments. So, I decided to just print out (part of ) my module so I could read it at work in between my patients using my highlighter and make scribbles on it. I figured once I get the note part out of the way, I could afterwards concentrate on binge listening to my e tutorials during my commute to work and return from it.
I was watching Youtube over the weekend and stumbled upon one of Ali Abdaal’s videos. The last time I watched his video was when he was a medical student. I am not sure if he is still a medical doctor but he seems to be doing really well as this Youtube Guru and all. He is probably a millionaire.
Anyway, I noted that there were a few videos of him talking about the evidence-based study methods. I was blown away. Like wow, I couldn’t even find the time to read and critic a journal for my assignments, what more exploring on this subject in a very scientific manner. I mean, I wouldn’t accept nothing less coming from this genius either. I have only managed to sit in his mini lecture on Spaced Repetition and Active Recall because I spent the rest of my available hours doing house chores and handling the kids. Nevertheless, I will surely subscribe and watch/listen his other videos in my car. I love that his videos has an outline of what he wants to talk about and damn, this guy talks very fast. His handwriting must be epic!
Even now I am reading a book that he recommended which is called Show Your Work by Austin Kleon. I had a 2 pound credit in my e-wallet and so I managed to buy it at less than a fiver on Google Play. It is a wonderful book so far, I think I can finish it by the end of this week. Will put this in my highlight on my IG story. I have an IG account designated for my studies at hobominci. My virtual shopping cart at Kinokuniya is also piling up with books. I am just hoarding them in my cart until I get to a time when I feel motivated enough to click Checkout. Maybe by the end of this semester.
