A Few U2 Albums

 Modified: December 5, 2019 at 6:14 pm

Some tracks on this “Songs of Experience (Deluxe Edition)” album by U2 helped me get through some rough and sad emotional patches. I love how music can help us cope through difficult times and better enjoy good times. Here’s the album on Spotify.

Here’s “Songs of Innocence (Deluxe),” another U2 album I like to use in rotation for listening. “The Crystal Ballroom” on this album is so feel-good and up-tempo!

It appears there is now “a deeper integration of Samsung and Microsoft services ever since the two companies announced their strategic partnership at the Galaxy Note 10 launch. . . . [A] report by Sammobile indicates that Microsoft’s OneDrive is set to replace Samsung’s in-house cloud storage service eventually” (Ganti).

Points to Consider About Potential Graduate Programs Before You Enroll

 Modified: December 3, 2019 at 1:34 pm

Despite “The 3 Most Important Questions Every Prospective Grad Student Must Face,” an article published on October 16, 2019, being geared towards a scholarly, academic discipline other than English, it was worth the time it took to read and reblog about. I know I would like to go to graduate school, something that neither of my parents did, and it sometimes seems somewhat daunting without a sort of direction to guide me for how to select a school besides figuring out what I want to specialize in, even this early on while I am about to start my second bachelor’s degree. I will be at grad school down the line and should try to give myself every advantage for its preparation and completion that I can.

After reading this, I see how it totally makes sense to not only research the coursework and specializations for graduate and Ph.D. school, but, like this article mentions, a key point to focus on is how I and potential advisors and faculty interact with each other to determine if we are good fits (he mentions if it feels right in your gut). To regroup myself, keep my life and work/school spheres centered and balanced, and get some downtime to recharge, relax, and keep my mental health going strong, the article also points to how one should assess external factors like the climate and environment around your graduate program, and even talk with current new and senior students to get a feel for how things are on campus from the student’s perspective.

For LGBTQ+ that are seeking special housing arrangments and accommodations, it is likely wise to inquire about those particulars during a campus visit or in a conversation with a housing coordinator.
