Briefing April 28 (Tue)

Good morning, historians of East Asia!

You should all be well on your way with final projects and sprucing up blogposts and what not. I also know you have a ton of other assignments for other classes, so I am not sure what Google means when they advertise Google doodles against boredom on their website:

Boredom? In the last week of the Spring semester? Helllooooo??! (Google’s 9 to 5 page)

But should you feel bored, there are a lot of google doodle games to play through. Be mindful to set a timer so you don’t get sucked in.

This is perhaps also a good time to remind you of the Marinara timer extension on your Chrome browser, for the Pomodoro method: check out the second video in the briefing from March 31. And please share other tips you may have for keeping focused and creating a work-life balance in the final crunch weeks!
