Ways Student can actively be engaged in Independent Projects while studying in University

There is nothing called failure in Student Life. It`s all learning and improvising.

Every student has some dream of either becoming a scientist, an athlete or an actor. The internet is really divided into extremes and has content either for elite university students or entrepreneurs who are drop out from the top-notch university. But I do not belong to neither of them. Therefore, I started this blog for students from developing countries or students with low resources or opportunities. The only prerequisite is that you have to start the process of executing as early possible. Let’s say that you start in your high school or first year of undergraduate school.

If you are interested in getting to know about my journey of studying and working in different countries as a Ph.D. student with scholarships. You can check my blog here- 

How to win Scholarships?

Is it your 50th or 100th project that you have actually tried and have failed to execute? It is the hardest part of the progress. But you got to realize that you had the strength and patience to try at least 20,50 100 projects. Both numbers and results do not matter while you are trying and learning different ideas. But the speed of your executing definitely matters as it defines that you are actually thinking and creating ideas to execute your idea either you are contacting the collaborator, shooting a video for your academic or fitness project, writing an in-depth blog or ebook.

Time management and information about working hours is quite subjective which keeps changing as per the demands of your activities and lifestyle. I usually don’t understand the concept of time management for the student who is engaged in so many things. But there is one thing that a student can control and distribute its energy to specific activities which are utmost important.

Channeling all your energy to the important actions or events of your day will increase your productivity with ease, time and happiness. This can be done by organizing your mind with the idea of the amount of energy you have in you to utilize it with a focus on completing certain duties with complete attention.  This idea of energy management will grow into awareness with the practice of utilizing your energy precisely.

business

I am referring everything to the energy because I am pretty sure you have heard these sentences –

I am in a relaxed mood

I am tired

I am quite energetic and so on.

If you can understand these moods and energy to channel it towards related productive activities, it will automatically grow in different directions with the consistent and solid grind. The application of energy management in your daily life also enhances your strength to accept the changes.

The uncommon and unique trajectory of a student with precise utilization of your energy will indeed shape your energy investment into some unique product in terms of personal and professional development.

But students focus on time management which leads to so many ugly stories of students. There cannot be more ugly and terrible news that rate of depression, suicides, and emotional disorders have increased tremendously across the globe.

Ideas to manage and invest your energy as a Student

Enter and choose the field where you like to devote completely. In some or most cases, you cannot choose the field because of one or the other reason. I can understand but in that situation, choose that as your sub-field and work on it religiously. Invest good quality of your energy in the project either fitness or writing.  There is no one systematic way of learning a subject and field that you enjoy. If you are really passionate and devotional about the project, you will figure out the ways to invest your energy and find and unlock new strategies to learn anything.

Did you ever notice your performance during the peak hours or during the high rush of the deadline approaching? It is indeed fantastic how so many students can outperform themselves and achieve incredible results.

Do not establish a routine

It creates unnecessary resistance and limitations to stay within the time frame. Instead, if you are really enjoying the process of your work, there is no way that you will be bound to time. Enjoying the process pumps you to do an extra pushup, run a mile longer even if you are exhausted. The enjoyment in the work will kick you in without breaking any mind and time barriers. Enjoying the process and channeling your energy towards the work that you like the most will produce more work than you are supposed to do in a timeline.

There are always a few things like writing, communicating your project or handling administrative work in your project that you might not like. Notice these things carefully and never put this off until the last minute as nobody is going to come for you.

If you are a student and if you want to do your dream project, you will have to do everything on your own in the beginning stages. 

The idea of shifting and delaying to learn the difficult tasks needed for your project will not work. Try to avoid using the famous line “I work effectively under pressure”. It`s fine as it’s your genuine way of working.

But one only reach the spot of working under the pressure with consistent delaying and procrastinating about million other micro things which do not matter.

Eliminating the distractions in your School and University time period is of the essential elements for your project to flourish at a high rate. Everyone has different distractions but the most common will stealing minutes in between your work to watch a youtube video, communicating with your friends about useless and micro things. This is you investing your finite energy towards distractions which will ultimately kill your motivation to execute and finish the tasks of the day.

Engaging with social and cultural groups

This one is not easy to understand and explain when you are in your High school and undergraduate. Interactions and communications in these groups happen at a different level in an interdisciplinary approach. Social and cultural groups which are distributed uniformly and connects every single entity of the system or any organization that you are linked with.  These social and cultural groups will have common platforms in the University and digitally where they will gather for meetings.

Contribute to these platforms

Find an International Societies and nonprofit organization

The advanced members in these societies have already developed a sense of leadership and management skills which comes with experience. It is a strategic decision to work on these skills if you are not a born leader/manager. These international societies are usually advised by senior researchers or leaders who have links around other international societies and can put you in the related networks which will help you push your career.

How to engage in International Societies or nonprofit organization?

The best way is to join and volunteer for the organization. Once you have entered the place, interact with people from a different domain, create online projects, create content and fundraising events for them.

These strategies will help you understand the fundamentals of networking which can you use all your life. If you want to enhance your networking-

Follow these steps

  • Interact consistently with all the members in the societies or groups
  • Offer your services within or outside the system for free. It will act as a catalyst for your future ventures
  • Be humble and share opportunities with students who don`t know new things.

It will always be WIN- WIN for you

Want to get blue eyes?

I am sure, a lot of boys and girls want blue eyes. Isn`t?

Can genetic engineering and DNA sequencing technology make it happen? I believe that it`s gonna come in near future.

I was doing some research on the gene of BLUE eyes and I found out that the gene name called HERC2 is responsible to have blue color eyes in Human beings.  It has been found out that people with blue eyes usually have a mutation in HERC2 that leads to change in the function of another gene called OCA2 which ultimately leads to change in the color of eyes.

But guys, HERC2 is a big gene of 15000-17000 bp. Now I am sure most of you will ask what is 15000 bp. Bp is base pair and our human DNA is made up of 3 billion base pairs. Now you will ask what is a base pair? There are 4 base pair i.e., A,G,C and T and our human DNA of 3 billion base pair is made up of only 4 letters [A,G,T,C] in different combinations. Each living being on this earth- humans, dogs, plants. insects, cats everyone has these base pairs but all of them have different number of base pairs.

So, out of these 3 billion letters, 15000 base pairs makes a gene called HERC2 which is responsible for many small functions in human body. But the interesting one is the change in color of eyes. And geographically, this gene and humans with blue eyes are most prominent in North and East Europe and some parts of North Africa and Americas.

I am not saying that this is going to easy but the cosmetic industry already have there eyes on this gene and they are going to come up with new strategy to get you the blue eyes using DNA sequencing and DNA editing technology.

Just remember a part of HERC2 is the gene of BLUE EYES. It`s coming……

 

Thonon les Bains- France

Thonon is one of the most interesting town I have visited in France. Its location is spectacular and also has an interesting and complex history. Can you tell which one is the Swiss and which one is Savoi Flag!

A friend of mine shared a story that whenever the Swiss hikers reached the mountain top and put there flags on the top, the Savoy hikers goes to the top and extend the white cross until the borders to make it look like a Savoy flag.  I just wanted to tell you that if you are travelling around the Savoy region, there is a possibility that you might get confused by Savoy flag which looks like a swiss one and other way around too.

Now, Do you know about the bla bla car service?  I used it for the first time in Thonon les Bains and Its really an incredible and cheap service for the solo travellers. Apart from that I also got to meet different people from different age groups, culture and background which is really fantastic and a learning journey. I went around 5 places that were in and around of Thonon les bains. Thonon is located by the lake which is known as lake leman by the French side and lake geneva by the swiss side as it connects both the countries.

Solo travelers, Rememer to use the BLA-BLA Car service. Its really cheap and incredible service which gives to an oppotunity to meet people and get exclusive local information which you might not find on internet or travel books. I met so many people who had many stories to share. “While travelling from Thonon to Annecy, I met a French guy who told old me that Thonon is a nice place for the sports lover as you can enjoy skiing in the winters and kayaking in the summers. The other person i met while travelling to Laussane told me that its the best part of France to eat Fondue, drink wine and enjoy the spledid nature. Its all about the perspective…

 

You can do many things in Thonon—

Visit Lake Leman or Lake Geneva- The lake located in Rhone alpes region which is shared It is located by the side of Lake leman or Lake Geneva. This lake is so huge and is stretched until Laussane and Montreux. You can walk by the harbor, enjoy the French cuisine and have a relaxing time. There are many things you can do in and around the lake ranging from water sports and visiting small towns using boats. Usually, the boats are more frequently used in summers.

Visit Laussane and Geneva- You can take the boat to visit laussane from thonon but it is little cheap and will cost you aroud 50 Euros to go and come back .

Visit Yviore- It just 15 mins by bus to reach the really beautiful  700 year old medieval village. You can take the Line number 152. In past,the village had a strategic position in terms of defense for a long period of time in 15th century. But now its just a village of farmers and fisherman.

Visit Annecy- Annecy is the wonderland with lots of color which makes you feel like walking in the cartoonik world. Take a walk by the lake and enjoy the cheese. Talking about the cheese in France. It really hard to remember the names of the cheese but I would advice you to try abondance and tomme chees along with selected wine advised by the local people.

I also enjoyed the THURSDAY MARKET in the city center of thonon which offers you lots of local cheese and food to try.
