Over the past couple of weeks, I've been recovering from shingles. It is... not fun, to say the least. But I have an incredible community to whom I am so grateful for checking in, forcing me to rest, and celebrating health milestones, like this certificate my students gave me
Certificate on taupe background with hearts, sparkles, and a orange gradient rainbow with a badge at the top stating “certificate of being an icon” to Dr. Katherine S. Cho for successfully having completed “resting through shingles” with a white inserted color block and an enthusiastic congratulations!
In a year, I read somewhere around 100-200 books. I don't have a TV and I use reading as a form of escape, and I especially like reading outside of academia. It also helps with improving my writing :)
When I'm trying to concentrate, I like having background music that's super dramatic. For some reason, instrumental music is instrumental (pun!) in helping me concentrate. Most of the songs are Korean-drama OSTs (original sound tracks), w/ a few classical music scores in the mix!
I don't categorize anything other than my "random round-ups" because it takes too much work (insert laughing emoji).
