Bwogline: Last Saturday, Patricio Manuel became the first openly trans man to compete in a professional boxing match in the U.S. Manuel, 33, said he’s been in love with the sport since first stepping into the ring when he was in high school. He won the fight against Hugo Aguilar, but the crowd booed and whistled at him. But, Manuel said he doesn’t let it affect him as his love for the sport outweighs the negativity.
Study Tip: If you have a hard time concentrating on your work and are prone to checking your phone every 2 seconds, try the 40-20 study method! It’s 40 minutes of studying followed by 20 minutes of break/rest. I have a problem of constantly getting distracted while studying and this helped a ton. Make sure to set a timer so that you are strict to your schedule.
Music: “Nobody” by Mitski is a great song to study to, her voice is soft and isn’t too distracting. Though make sure not to listen too closely because it’s all about loneliness and might make you a bit sad.
Procrastination Tip: Make something! If you are going to procrastinate, channel your anxiety and frustration into creating. It can be knitting a scarf, writing in a journal, painting, sewing, collaging, or any creative craft of your choice! If you’re going to procrastinate, might as well have something to show for it.
Overheard: CUMB making as much noise as humanly possible at 2 am outside my dorm.
