I am an university student. I don’t think I like being one, and around two weeks before the christmas break my brain decided to literally stop all the productivity. Couldn’t even get myself to check what I am supposed to be doing/learning.
This continued well into the christmas break, and only after the New Year’s I came across a tweet that helped me break out of this productivity sinkhole loop, and I’d like to share it here because I’d be in much more trouble at uni if I didn’t encounter this.
I tend to go through Duolingo lessons quite fast (if you do not know what Duolingo is, I recommend checking it out - it is quite a fun way to learn languages, and for free.)
This results in me usually typing in the sentences at my 80 WPM (well, the average is probaly less, but I’m trying to train it to be more consistent), then quickly smashing Enter twice to first submit the sentence, and then accept the “Correct!” message.
Sometimes, however, I make a mistake, and would like to read the correction before advancing further. Unfortunately, my monkey brain got trained to mash the Enter key twice to go as fast as possible to the next lessons. Aaand then I decided to fix that with my computer-y powers.
