Fertilization

A beautifully done animation on how you became you.

See the full video here as I left out some really cool parts.

From 300 or so million down to ONE.

YOU. MADE. IT.

Edit:
Let’s think about this for a moment. The US population is roughly 330 million human beings. For the purposes of demonstration, take almost the ENTIRE POPULATION OF THE US and put them on the west coast, packed as tightly as possible. You’re just chillin, somewhere south of Pasadena let’s say, trying to get free, sweating and hungry with a desire you’ve never experienced before. You know you’re going to die though you think you’ll be the one to make it.

Then like the ULTIMATE hunger games of GENETIC WIN you traverse across the country desperately trying to get to the goal with absolute disregard for the other 299 million people. Your mom, dad, brother, sister, grandma, everyone you’ve ever known dies. You somehow get to the end. Where you bust through a gated base only to be sealed in and combined with another human to make a brand NEW human.

300,000,000 and you’re the only survivor. And your prize is to essentially die and reconstitute into a new being.

That’s awesome.

Happening NOW: 30,000 Chinese workers strike at the world’s largest producer of athletic shoes such as Nike and Adidas over pay, benefits, and the right to choose a union. The strike, China’s largest in decades, has shutdown production for two weeks and caused the company’s stock price to plummet.

Bloomberg News reports:
"Workers have disrupted production in Yue Yuen’s Dongguan factory complex, which employs more than 40,000 people, since April 14 in a dispute over pay, benefits and the right to pick their own union. More than 50 percent of the workers were on strike today, Liu said. China Labour Watch, which estimated the striking workers at about 30,000, said a small number had returned to work, without quantifying it.”

STUDY TIPS

Tips to help focus:

  • Delegate a certain amount of time during the day to complete your schoolwork. 

For me, I like to keep all of my schoolwork during the day, so I basically treat it as a 9-5 job. That means, even if you finish early/start late/have no classes or only a few classes one day, go to the library and catch up with your work! It leaves your evenings free to do whatever you need to do. This works for me really well.

  • Study in an environment that’s clean, organised and comfortable. If you can’t study at home, go to the library. Don’t study on your bed lol, you’ll probably fall asleep. Once you find a good place, stick with it. After building a routine, your study spot can help get you in the zone since your mind will associate it with work, which can help you focus.
  • Study in short bursts of 20-30 minutes. After that amount of time, have a 5minute break. Tell yourself to spend those 20-30 minutes doing ONLY work, because the breaks are so frequent, you can check on whatever you need to do during those times, which should make it much easier to focus on doing work. You have to be very strict with yourself to not go over your breaks. After your break return to work and start again with 20-30minute study bursts.
  • Spread those study sessions out throughout the day, so between classes, or one in the morning and one in the afternoon etc. Don’t spend more than 2-3 hours in one place or you’ll get bored and burn out quicker. 
  • Split all your work into smaller manageable tasks and then dedicate some time doing one task at a time.

For example, dedicate 2 sessions to doing your readings on a particular chapter in a book. 1 chapter per study session.
